  • First class! We are so so pleased with Archie's full groom today, couldn't ask for better. Such a friendly and professional service with a lot of time and attention given to make sure the cut was right. I think Archie even enjoyed it!! Thanks again

  • Can highly recommend The Dog Box to all dog owners. They took their time getting to know my border collie and her needs so that overall she was very comfortable. The difference from how she looked and smelt before her groom to how she looked and smelt after was amazing! Also took her back for just a wash and again was very impressed with the service we received. Anna's attitude and commitment to her work is truly commendable and we will continue to recommend them to any dog owner. Brilliant!!!!!

  • Thanks so much Anna, Max looks even more adorable after his first pamper session with you today! Absolutely love the cut you gave him and he feels super soft and even more cuddly. He smells delicious too! First class service, we are very happy customers. See you in two week!

  • We first came across The Dog Box whilst my husband was walking our shihtzu; Winston. Anna's daughter gave us a card and I texted Anna almost immediately. We usually use a well known groomers but we are never 100% happy with the service and/or our dogs cut, we always felt a bit rushed. Anna is a totally different kettle of fish! She's was easily reached, friendly and professional. What I felt was fabulous was the fact she wanted to meet us before the groom to go over any requirements, requests and also to make a total fuss of Winston! He felt comfortable with her and so did we! Her customer service is second to none and we immediately trusted her with our fur baby - she even managed to agree to have Winston seen on a Sunday. When we picked our pup up after his groom he was relaxed and looking absolutely gorgeous!! She uses natural products and the best equipment, I cannot recommend Anna enough and I'll be shouting her company name from the roof tops! A great little find and totally different from the 'big dogs' in the grooming industry! We will not be returning to our old groomers and we will be using Anna from now on! Thanks again Anna! We will see you in 4 weeks!

  • I visited Anna today for the first time with my large breed Golden Doodle who was very matted and in desperate need of some TLC. The grooming salon is immaculate and very high tech. Anna is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She genuinely cares about your dog and how he/she is feeling. At the same time Anna has an incredible eye for detail. It's clear she takes pride in her work and unlike most groomers this doesn't come at the expense of care and compassion for the animal she's working with. Sending updates throughout the day to let me know that my dog was in safe hands was an unexpected lovely touch. I was also really impressed that my dog was given a break from the grooming for 20 minutes in the secure fenced garden. Wow! I would highly recommend The Dog Box who went above and beyond. Thank you

We respectfully request 24 hours notice to cancel an appointment or a 50% charge will be applied.

Your pet’s welfare is our primary focus. If a dog is stressed or unhappy we will contact you and if necessary stop a groom. In other instances it may be necessary to clip out severe matting, as putting an animal through a stressful and painful de-matting process would not be in their best interests. In all instances we would contact you before altering any agreed grooming.

We do not express anal glands, as a qualified vet should do this.

We do not use cage dryers, you pet will always be dried under constant supervision with specialist stand and handheld dryers.

We have a good relationship with our neighbours and would like to maintain this. Please park on our driveway and not the surrounding roads and be respectful when dropping off and collecting your pet. Thank you!

Special treatment for your dog

Welcome to The Dog Box, a family business owned and run by Anna Webber.


We are a family of animal lovers and have owned everything from hamsters to horses. Whilst the choice of other animals has changed over the years we have always had canine companions. Our current menagerie consists of our two dogs Tilly and Nelly, a hamster called Meredith and Bobby, a green-cheeked conure.

It seemed natural to turn my passion into a career, so after studying for the City & Guilds Certificate in Dog Grooming, The Dog Box was created. I hold a qualification in Dog First Aid and am fully insured with Pet Plan Sanctuary.

We have worked hard to find the right balance between professional and personal. Our purpose-built grooming studio is light, airy and very clean. We believe in providing a high quality, personal service. Your pet will be superbly cared for whilst in our care.

Your dog is able to look out of our big windows, which is a much less stressful and more natural environment than being cramped in the back of mobile dog grooming van. We also have a completely enclosed garden for a toilet break, whilst ensuring your beloved dog is safe and secure at all times.

Our studio is furnished with the latest equipment to make the grooming experience as positive, stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Our electric table goes so low that even older, less agile dogs can climb on and off without damaging their joints or back. We only ever use specialist handheld or stand dryers under constant supervision and your dog will NEVER be dried in a cage. We will also not use a high-velocity blaster dryer on nervous or young dogs.

A lot of time has been spent researching the best natural products available. WildWash shampoos and products are made in England and contain absolutely NO Parabens, Phthalates, Phosphates, Sulfates, Petrochemicals, Synthetic or Semi Synthetic Fragrances or PEGs. Your dog’s coat and skin will be left in the best condition possible without the use of harsh chemicals. They will come home smelling gorgeous too!

We actively encourage you to come and visit us with your dog to discuss your grooming requirements. This also means that your pet is familiar with our environment and us before you leave them to be groomed.
