What people say:

“We looked for a groomer when our cocker spaniel was 6 months old and Kelly immediately welcomed him and he was comfortable straight away despite being a nervous dog. 6 years later he still adores her and is keen to see her for his regular appointments. She has been brilliant coping with his ongoing back complaints and is always careful not to cause him discomfort. Neither he nor us would consider going anywhere else and we always recommend Kelly to all the people who admire his beautiful cut and coat.” – Rachel L

“I have been taking my poodle cross Travis to Kelly for 8 years. Having tried several other groomers that were closer I’ve always gone back to Kelly who is amazing with my dog as he is not the easiest of pooches.” – Travis Cooper

“We only use Kelly at A1 K9 in Ivybridge and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Teddy can sometimes be a little anxious and difficult, but Kelly is very patient with him so that he doesn’t get stressed. He always comes out looking and smelling gorgeous. Kelly is very professional and friendly and does a consistently good job. Highly recommended.” – Martyn B

“Kelly has been grooming my Samoyed and Keeshonds for several years now. They are not easy dogs to manage because their coats and temperaments need specialist knowledge – but Kelly has it, and there’s nobody else I’d trust with my dogs. Kelly’s knowledge and patience are seemingly endless, and she genuinely loves her job. She is friendly and chatty but always professional in her approach. Her advice is always worth listening to.” – Penny Samuels

“Valued groomer. I think Kelly’s experience is second to none with grooming our dog. It is very good also how we are able to stay in regular contact with her and our dog always comes back smelling pretty. Kelly is a star. Recommended.” – Janice M

“I am over the moon with the way Kelly groomed my puppy. I couldn’t be happier. A lovely atmosphere & very calming as it was Bailey’s ever first hair cut. If I could give A1 K9 more stars I would. Thank you very much!” – Adrienne Kirk

“Kelly & her girls made a delightful job grooming our Yorkie for the first time. He is a wriggly little boy & hates being fussed with. I felt like I was leaving my baby for the first time! 2 hours after I left him I went back to find he had been transformed & that he had been as good as gold, with all the staff falling in love with him! He looked amazing, I couldn’t believe she had managed to trim him, let alone make him look so gorgeous. I would recommend Kelly to everyone :)” – ‘Dobbys Mum’
