If you want a quick shoddy groom - don't go to Helena. She cares and takes the time to do the job perfectly. She mesmerised my non co-operative cavoodle into a model customer when I can't even brush him at home! Not only that but he tried to kiss her and wagged his tail in appreciation - even though he hates a bath, loathes the dryer, and flinches at every little noise when he is walked. This lovely lady is an enchantress! Get there before the rush! Don't forget not to be in a hurry - doing Helena's standard of work is not a quick fix ( and did I mention she kissed him back?)
Our Maltese Shih Tzu has been clipped by Helena for a while, very happy with the job.
We also took our West Highlander/Fox Terrier which can get quite aggressive at times, including when getting a haircut.
Somehow Helena managed to cut her hair, and did a great job.
Had our Maltese cross Bobby clipped today, very impressed with Helena's calm approach to him as he is a bit nervy, her calmness had him settled very quickly. The clipping done on Bobby was excellent and all done in an hour and a half not forcing him to away from his environment for a long time unlike some other facilities. Highly recommended.
