What some of our clients have to say...

"My dog, Cabo, is a chocolate lab/weimaraner mix.  Her temperament is excellent, but she gets nervous easily.  I wasn't able to get her into the truck, but Ashley was able to get her in with no problem.  Ashley took her time and meticulously groomed Cabo.  In fact, Cabo's grooming was a month ago and her coat still smells great!  Thank you so much, I appreciate the convenience of mobile grooming and the amazing care that is provided!"

"Stephanie was quite friendly and kept me informed as to when she would arrive.  The experience was great.  I scheduled an appointment with Stephanie in 4 weeks for a nail trim and then I will schedule another grooming in 2 weeks.  Definitely a value and convenience.  Again, Stephanie was great and I'm very happy she will be returning in a few weeks to give my ladies a pedi."


"I hired Matt to groom my Saint Bernard Avalanche and he was the only company that would come to me after calling countless other mobile groomers.  My 200lb dog was so scared he wouldn't go into the van so Matt plugged in 2 extension cords and groomed him in my front yard so he wasn't traumatized.  With a lot of patience he was able to get the job done (the experience, if it had been video taped, might have brought a few laughs as well).  My other dog which is a rescue does not like men and after a while was able to sense Matt's passion for animals and calmed down.  Thanks DogFather for the positive experience."

"Barbara is a star!  She helped me last summer get another one of your groomers here when she was completely booked and kitty had gotten himself into a mess...Thrilled to finally meet her.  What a wonder gentle job with my precious littler persian. A++++++++"

"Again, thank you for taking such good care of Miki.   He is strolling around the house, probably deciding where to take a nap although possibly also maybe trying to find a low mirror so he can admire himself.  See you on  12 October."

"Thank you, Peggy!!  This was our rescue pup's first experience (as his new owners) getting groomed.  You made him so comfortable.  We really didn't know how he would like getting wet.  He did great thanks to you!!  Baxter looks so handsome and he is so white!!! And soft!!!!  He even started falling asleep after his clipping, he felt so at ease!!  Thank you again and we'll definitely recommend you!!  Happy Holidays!!!"

"Just a quick note to Matt Harwood, 'The Dogfather,' to say 'thanks' for grooming Maxwell.  When I relocated to CT 6 months ago, I was finding it difficult finding a superior groomer for my Old English Sheepdog and went through many before finding you.  When you finished with Max, my husband even commented on how wonderful Max looked!  He said, 'The paws are the indication of whether or not a groomer is good!' And we think you are great.  "THANKS!"

"I just wanted to thank you so much for the great job you did on my 2 Goldens yesterday.  They look so good and smell great too!  I love not having to truck them to the groomer anymore.  The Dogfather is my new best friend."

"Lucy, my black lab, has almost completely stopped shedding after your furminator treatment.  Thank you, 'Dogfather,' we look forward to seeing you every month from now on."

Janice T. Durham

"What a dream!  My 3 Bichons look as if they are ready for Westminster Dog Show.  I just love the delicate shaping and the fluffiness of their coats.  You are a real artist.  You truly are the 'Dogfather.'"

Amy G. North Haven

"Dear Matt Harwood...We have never had our dogs groomed in our driveway before.  What a pleasant surprise!  You can't imagine how hard it is to drive 2 Newfoundlands to the grooming shop.  You came to us, and our babies were taken care of right at our home.  Congratulations on a job well done."

Gary C. Hamden

"We want to thank Stephanie for her patience and skill.  She is great.  Each time she leaves, our dog is out cold!"
