I could not be happier with the results!

I have taken my border terrier to The Handsome Hound twice now and could not be happier with the results! I can’t believe how handsome he looks every time I pick him up, and I can tell that he feels great, too.

I would definitely recommend to anyone – make sure to book as far in advance as possible.
