Glynn kindly left the following Review for us on our Google Profile page (see google reviews)

Glynn Cummins – 5 Stars – We brought our 10 year old King Charles whom I might add is very timid as he had a stroke as a pup and doesn’t like anybody touching his paws , nails or ears) in to Steve and he needed at lot of tender care .. Steve was so good with him and spent 3 hours doing his nails and grooming him , and the price was fantastic, Normally Sam would come back traumatised but I think he would have stayed with Steve. That was last night and he is still strutting around the house this eve trying to get everyone’s attention, Thanks Steve

Elaine French Tel 07745 927469 kindly left us a 5 star review in November 2015

“I’ve taken my cocker spaniel, Ruby, to Steve since she was six months old. She was initially very timid but Steve had great patience and she came home after her first groom happy and very chilled and she looked fantastic. She’s just had her fourth grooming session and again, she looks fantastic, smells great and comes home very happy. Steve always takes great care, is patient and does a superb job. I put my trust in Steve and recommend him wholeheartedly.

I have taken my own and relatives dog to Yew Tree Grooming since they opened last year. Our  website yewtreegrooming.com has many pictures of this very well equipped and very clean dog salon. My relatives pet, Bobby, is also in the Rolling picture gallery “Fun B4 and After” on this the website. When I arrive, the salon and equipment have clearly been sterilized before every groom so you know your dog is safe. There is a cabinet full of all the best dog care shampoos/ sterilizing solutions for equipment and top of the range dog grooming implements. The website pictures show how well the dogs are groomed, My dogs have never come back stressed from this grooming salon. I would recommend the owner and his assistant to anyone seeking a good service at a reasonable price. You are kept fully informed what is been done with your pet. Pictures are even sent before collection to make sure you are happy with what has been achieved. Well Done, and thanks again for tonights work on my large pet Marley

Elaine French sent us the below very kind email following the grooming of her delightful Spaniel, Ruby:-

Elaine French
To say that I am more than delighted with Ruby’s grooming is an understatement. Just to let you know she came home really chilled and happy and I just wanted to say thanks very much once again for all the time and effort and kindness you showed her.  I’ll certainly be recommending you and will be in touch in the near future. Regards.

“Monique of 198 Mauldeth Road West, Withington, Manchester :-                                          My Wesley – The Best Looking Dog Around Town-                                                                                                                                                                     I adore my little Shihtzu Wesley but had recently let his hair get far too long and tangled. I found there was a grooming salon just a few hundred yards from my house at Yew Tree Grooming. So I took Wesley there and was absolutely delighted when i went back to collect him. Wesley was an adorable dog with loads of character to start with. Now he has the perfect haircut with lovely trim and is the poshest dog round my area. Thanks Steve, and for the advice on keeping Wesley de-tangled for our next visit.

Comment from Yew Tree Grooming – Many thanks Monique – Wesley was a diamond and a pleasure to bathe and trim nicely.We now take “Before and After”  Pictures of all dogs Groomed  – and with the owners permission, place some in our “Fun and B4 and After” Gallery. (Example below) – perhaps we can do this with “Wesley” next groom.

Donna – Shit Tzu and King Charles Owner – Went to Yew Tree Grooming on recommendation and Took a picture of Pepi Three weeks after she had been groomed there –  and she looks just as good now as the day she was groomed. My King Charles goes to Yew Tree soon – and everyone seems to be recommending these groomers now, even though when my Pepi went they had only been open a week.

Its Debbie from Heaton Mersey who brought the Cavapoo Elsie in for a groom a few weeks ago. Sorry for the delay in reviewing your services. Here goes….“I brought Elsie for a cut and was very impressed with the service and prices offered at Yew Tree. The converted garage was immaculately clean and Steve was great with my timid little pooch! He explained what he would do and when I collected Elsie she looked gorgeous and smelt fantastic for days. Thank you!”Hope this helps See you soon.     Debbie Leck

Charlotte Evans    : -Having received a flyer with an introductory offer we gave Steve a call on Saturday morning and he booked us in for that evening. We have a young and quite boisterous Westie (only 8months) who can be a bit resistant to a good brush and needed a full cut (his first). I was really impressed with how clean and well equipped the salon is and the cut was good value for money (I resent salons that charge £35+ pounds for a small dog to get their hair cut!) The shampoo used has left his hair beautifully soft and Steve wasn’t afraid to ask us lots of questions about what we wanted which I really appreciated. He also admitted he hadn’t done a Westie cut before (he has only been established a month) but we are pleased with the results and would go back again

Comment from Yew Tree Grooming -Thanks Charlotte – we now take “Before and After”  Pictures of all dogs Groomed, and with the owners permission, place them in our “Fun and B4 and After” page.

Lorraine  – Very Good Price and Job -Took my Collie Morley to Yew Tree Grooming, only a light trim was required and for the price it was very reasonable.

Zeke Maguire   :-  Wonderful service with a wonderful result. A week after pampering and my dog still smells beautiful. Never knew a Labrador Retriever could be so clean. Zeke Maguire, Manchester Grammar School, Old Hall Lane, Manchester

Pauline:-  My lab cross Tiny (a large dog) was done well  at a very reasonable price and Yew Tree Dog Grooming would not take more money when I returned to collect Tiny. Will use them again.

The best I have used – Paul Sherwood – Steve did a great job with my Lhasha Aspo who is not the easiest when it comes to getting cut. He was really patient with her and we were very happy when she came home looking and smelling great. Already recommended to my brother and friends and easily recommend Yew Tree Dog Grooming to anyone else.

Comment by Yew Tree Grooming :- Many thanks for the Kind Reviews,  – Since Grooming your pets, We now take  Before” and “After” Pics of all our Grooming work – and I am sure you all will not mind if we add your Pets to our “Before” and “After” Gallery next time.  Click on our “Fun B4 and After”  page next and see if you can spot our pet Morgan (clue- She only likes the best quality Chanel Scarves!!) Very high standards

Cristal – This groomer of the many I have tried has very high standards of cleanliness and efficiency. My dog also got a more than acceptable bathe and groom given that the business has only just opened and experience is still been gained

Very efficient service

Geraldine :-  I have two Shitzu’s and a poodle. The owner of yew Tree dog Grooming is my ex husband, so despite the breakdown in our marriage, I decided to let him groom my dogs. Wish he was as good in our marriage as he was at grooming my three dogs. They looked well and truly spruced up when he had finished giving them one of the best hair cuts they have ever had. Shame he never noticed when I had my hair done to look nice for him !! Still, marriage was made in heaven but we live on earth. At least he can still groom my dogs in future – I get groomed elsewhere !!!

Lovely place and excellent service

By Mel Banks:- I took my my two Maltese dogs to yew tree dog grooming on Friday and Saturday last week. They came back with very good cuts indeed and smelt of real quality shampoos. Would very much recommend at the very reasonable prices charged.

Excellent cut for my three doggies

By Gemma Franks:-  I took my three Aspo dogs to Yew Tree and the groom was the best they have ever had. My dogs are well trained and Steve allowed me to stay and watch my first pet, 3 year old Sparky, be groomed. I would recommend this business to anyone – he uses care, affection, and great attention to detail. I have also just seen the video of what happened when the Akita owner who left a bad review (removed) went to Steves salon, This dog is extremely dangerous when the owner is not present, Steve had a very lucky escape as the video shows. Once Steve sent on the information to yell.com, they immediately removed this malicious review – fair play to Yell.com – well done for protecting responsible hard working dog groomers from irresponsible owners and their dangerous dogs.
