Then we begin the process over a number of sessions of familiarising the pup to each stage of the grooming process. Getting used to the sights, sounds and feelings of being bathed, dried, and brushed as well as being groomed.

Nervous dogs need a lot of extra time for their grooming. Nothing will be rushed. Bath with aromatherapy shampoo and massage followed by a full groom, treats, cuddles and playtime in the garden, or just a chill out on our memory foam bed. I will ensure that your dog is happy and calm before any grooming procedure is undertaken and throughout your dogs stay. Sometimes the whole grooming process needs to be split into shorter appointments. In short, we are guided by your dog’s needs.

I am Lisa Harris, Managing owner of Top to Tail Dog Groomers. City and Guilds Qualified in Dog Grooming.
At Top to Tail priority is to give your dog a completely stress free experience. I only book one dog at a time to ensure there is no requirement for dogs to be caged. Your dog will receive individual attention, not only during grooming, but also through out their visit.
If, your dog reacts nervously to being groomed, my approach is to devote ample time to building the necessary trust between groomer and dog, ensuring the dog is fully relaxed, before whatever level of grooming is commenced. This will include a bath with aromatherapy shampoo and massage, which, when handled sensitively, will be a positive enjoyable experience for your dog.
To reinforce this positive experience,I can also arrange playtime, with healthy treats as a reward for the whole grooming experience. This attention to the whole package will ensure your dog leaves Top to Tail happy.
Of equal importance to the grooming of your dog is the understanding of your dog’s behaviour. This is the key to you having a happy dog that enjoys being groomed.
At Top to Tail I also offer a special ‘puppy’ package, which ideally, should start at an early age. Taken one step at a time, to give the pup time to get used to the sound of a hair dryer and the feel of the clippers or scissors. A few short appointments will ensure that your puppy will be relaxed and confident when the need for a full groom becomes necessary.
My aim is to ensure your dog is happy and looks great in his or her new cut.

Over the years I have owned many dogs that required grooming. As time passed, with every trip to the groomers my dogs became increasingly nervous. So much so, I could only get them into the grooming salon with great difficulty.
I began to realise this was not normal (or acceptable) that my dog should be fearful of being groomed. What was happening to them to cause this problem? Was it because they were not being handled correctly? Or were they left in cages for an undue lenght of time?
I also became aware that anyone can set up in business as a dog groomer with absolutely no qualifications ,why was this? I would not go to a hairdressers for a complete revamp of my hair with someone who had not bothered to gain a qualification in the subject so why would I expect less for my dogs?
From experience gained with my own dogs, I came to understand that it is of equal importance to develop my knowledge of dog behaviour. I wanted to ensure my dogs continued to be healthy, happy and actually enjoyed being groomed
With these thoughts in mind, I decided to spend time and effort to obtain a nationally recognised qualification in dog grooming. Having gained my City and Guilds Certification, I now have the knowledge and expertise to be able to offer my clients the very best personal service for their pets.
I am conscious that pet grooming can be expensive. All my charges are maintained at a realistic, competitive level for a quality personal service
Top to Tail Groomers in Bexhill has worked wonders on my VERY nervous, special-needs little mini-schnauzer Lottie who had spent seven years in the hell of a puppy-farm. Lisa has taken a great deal of time and trouble getting Lottie used to being groomed, and has also spent time with me advising how best to help Lottie be desensitised to the traumas she faces while being groomed. Over a period of less than a year, at six week intervals, Lottie is now confident enough to be groomed by Lisa without my presence. Lottie always looks so beautiful after a session with Lisa.
Having had a bad experience with a previous groomer, I was delighted to be recommended to Lisa. Lisa is an expert groomer and she makes my three miniature schnauzers look gorgeous every time they visit. I feel confident leaving my dogs in her care in the calm and clean environment of her salon with no other visiting dogs. She is extremely professional, well organised, reliable and a pleasure to deal with. I couldn’t be more happy with the service Lisa provides and recommend her highly.
Here are some of our very special pooches that come to see Top To Tail Dog Groomers every month. With dogs as happy and stylish as these, it’s no wonder they keep coming back
