“We have a very nervous Labrador who absolutely loves Wendy and always looks and smells gorgeous after her spa days with her. Highly recommended!”

“My puppy always looks great after her visits to Wendy, and very relaxed and happy. I also love the fact that the products are chemical-free.”

“I love this place! My dog is so happy here, she actually looks forward to going! Wendy does exactly what I want done unlike some places that do their own thing. I can highly recommend Wychwood Grooming.”
