Canine Physiotherapy

Specialist massage for prevention, management and treatment of many health conditions


Excellent service today, Del Boy looks very handsome and I am particularly impressed with the quality and speed having previously waited 3hrs for him to be finished at another groomers and ending with an inferior finish. Will definitely be returning and recommending.

My Bailey went off as a yeti and came home a dog!  She looks brilliant! Super pleased with the service and well worth the money. Now I have a King Charles living with me too so it won’t be long before she is visiting Buddies 

Emily Jane Burridge

Our first visit and my dogs look lovely. Will definitely be going back and recommending to my doggy friends.

Karen Bartlett

Jessie always comes back looking lovely and this is one place i never worry about leaving her. Emily is excellent.

I could never trim my dogs nails as she would be a bit snappy – Emily was wonderful with her and we never had any problems- Lola was the perfect client. I took a VIP plan with the vet which included nail cutting so took Lola there. What a mistake – the vet and a nurse only managed to clip 2 nails and I heard Lola yelping from the waiting room and she was obviously very distressed. The vet said the only way to trim her nails was under sedation which I was not happy about! I phoned Emily and took Lola the next day and her nails were trimmed without any distress – to me or Lola. I cannot recommend them highly enough and will never take Lola anywhere else now . A well deserved 5 star service.
