"I know we are aware of this but I have to say that since posting on FB and google that I’ve joined this wonderful group (PDBUK) - I’ve had numerous clients say they didn’t realise all groomers weren’t trained as such. My phone hasn’t stopped ringing, my inbox is on fire - best £30 I ever spent!

Here’s to the next chapter in ensuring the welfare of our babies are taken seriously…. “Thank you” Sue Oliver for recommending Professional Dog Businesses UK group to me… you’re a diamond! (My books are full ‘till December!) I

I will endeavour to be the best groomer I can be to each individual doggy because I love every one of them." 

(West Bridgford Dog Grooming)

The quality, experience and expertise within the network is second to none. PDBUK is a real gem for dog owners looking for a reputable pet business to meet their specific needs."

"Delighted to be part of this business and it deserves recognition for the amount of work that Emma, Director puts in.
Emma is passionate about dog’s getting the best service possible and is on a mission which I feel will succeed.
The way it is run is just spot on…all professional credentials are checked on a yearly basis before renewing our membership and with the group growing so big now, that’s a lot of work…!
The way Emma tries to promote the professionals is second to none - competitions are run for all services offered - I feel these are set up fairly and more importantly, in addition, draws attention not only to qualified, professionals but also highlights the most important factor in all of this - that our shared aim is for all dogs to receive the best possible service from all in BDPUK.
“Thank you” so very much Emma for accepting me into this fabulous group…It’s helped me loads with my business…customers’ are loving that they have a so called ‘vetted’ dog groomer!
Absolutely 5* from me…x"

(Jayne Ritchie)

Amazing! Give us a bit of recognition in a society which is often too keen to see people fail. This has been a nice group to be part of and I add the logo to my certificates so my students know they are part of something too. Well done. It’s nice to feel part of something.

(Lorna Foley)

Excellent service for dog owners and professionals alike. I particularly like that anyone that wants to have their details on the site has to show proof of insurance and their certificates for any courses they have completed. Meaning that anyone on there has already been checked and assessed for their suitability.

(Speak Dog With Ruth Haynes)

Amazing way of people finding top quality, fully licensed and insured pet professionals as each company joining are scrutinised and verified. Love the award system too. If your looking for any pet service check these out on.
