Chiddingly Dog & Cat Grooming
Welcome to Chiddingly Dog & Cat Grooming. Chiddingly Dog & Cat Grooming offers a professional dog grooming service to customers in Lewes, Ringmer, Uckfield, Heathfield, Hailsham, and the surrounding areas.
My name is Sue Vincent and I trained at Plumpton College as a professional dog groomer. My fully equipped grooming salon is located on Foxhunt Farm and offers quality care with the latest equipment and training. I am also fully insured.
If you are in search of a dog or cat grooming service and would like the assurance that your precious pet will be taken care of by a friendly, experienced groomer, then Chiddingly Dog & Cat Grooming is the right place. I offer a professional and reliable service for customers from Lewes, Ringmer and the surrounding areas. I always complete my work to the highest standards and having spent my entire life surrounded by all sorts of animals am confident that I can put your pet at ease.
It normally takes 2 hours to complete each dog and there is a very good little tea shop that customers can visit about 3 miles away in the next village, East Hoathly. Alternatively, if you would like to stay while your dog is being groomed you are more than welcome to do so. I also have nice, safe cages for the visiting dogs where they can watch proceedings or just have a snooze.
I have a good reputation for dealing with the more difficult dogs and am very sensitive with old or very young dogs that may need special attention.
I am a mum of three and a gran of three and have been happily married for 39 years. I am very lucky to live in a beautiful part of the country close to the South Downs. We live on a farm with three Shetland ponies and 2 lovely dogs.
I used to run a business offering hire of chinaware, glassware, tables and chairs – in fact anything that is needed for weddings, parties or any events. I ran that for 16 years before selling it and retraining as a dog groomer. I am very lucky being able to work from home and have a converted farm building, which I love, in which I do my dog and cat grooming.
Lots of my doggie customers are local and I also receive customers to whom I have been recommended by the local vets. I advertise in the local parish magazine and the rest are really from word of mouth.
I don’t mind what I do for the dogs and find the dirty, smelly, hairy ones a happy challenge! I love to see the before and after. The only service I don’t offer is hand stripping the wire types of terrier but if the owners are happy to have them clipped instead they are very welcome.
De-matting is an occasional necessary process for your dog, by using the proper products and tools I can make it as stress free as possible.
