Second groom here for Mabel, they are so good with her and she’s come out both times looking and smelling beautiful, (just look at those little feet ) I travel from Ashford and knowing she’s not stressed whilst being groomed is worth the journey and I get to browse the shops whilst I’m waiting - what’s not to love

Teddy had his first adult groom at the Dog Store this week. He absolutely loved his time there. We left him bouncing around and very happy to be left without us. The staff were so friendly and took time to talk to us about what we wanted. A very happy pup and owner. We will be back! More...

As a cat owner, would not have found this wonderful shop without the recommendation from a "wildly enthusiastic" young man called Tom. Now we can get treats for our doggie friends, and we have a wonderful catnip penguin for our cat. Thanks Tom. More...

What can I say?! I originally visited the shop to ask about harnesses for my dog. They were very helpful and patient. I ended up leaving empty handed but I returned a couple of weeks later and purchased it. Very good quality. Very friendly staff. More...

Fantastic service when taking my dog in for a groom. It took a lot longer to groom him than anticipated, but we were not rushed and their main priority was that he was happy. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend this shop. More...

We are very pleased to recommend the Dog Store in Canterbury. We wanted another Giraffe toy as a present which was so successful, however this needed to be ordered. It took some time which was not a problem and then they called to say that they had ordered a larger size then we wanted however honoured the original price. They are a good personal business which ethically sourced products. Please use them ! More...

I can not recommend this shop enough! They were so accommodating and friendly. I went in specifically to order some cat food and they ordered it in for me with great efficiency. The manager was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all my questions, which was a great help to me. I shall definitely be returning to Dog Store soon. More...

The best bit was coming back to the 'Dog Store' to pick my dogs up. looked through the glass window. My dogs were happy and wagging their tails, rather than stressed while waiting for me to come back!
Highly recommend it!

Oh well another pet shop visited. Wonderful selection of goods for Silver doggy to play with. Met Peter, great dog, I think he liked me. Anyhow, I bought more than I should have, yet again, . Still, I would highly recommend a visit real soon, just don't go too mad like I did, . Or at least try not to. Friendly staff, you cannot go wrong really. More...

Absolutely love the store. Some locally made stock, supporting local businesses alike.
They even have a Groom Room to pamper your pooches and the owner is adorable, Pete the Border Collie! Make sure you keep Chris & Jenell in check.
Cannot wait for the chance to personalise some bits on our next visit. Good luck guys, I think you’ve ‘struck gold’

Q&A

The dogs!!


Seriously though, the dogs. :-) And seeing people make good choices for their furry friends.

We started Dog Store because when we got our puppy we had no idea what we were doing, and there was nobody to tell us! Large pet stores just didn't seem to have the expertise or unbiased advice we needed. We spent soo much money and time trying to get things right and we just felt as though a shop like Dog Store would be extremely valuable to us as well as helping with our grooming needs.

Dog Store is an independent shop and groomers that that aims to bring the community together - to offer advice, good quality products and services you won't get anywhere else. Our Grooming is fantastic quality, and being in town means you can get your shopping done without worrying about the dog you left at home! It's run by a local couple that are passionate about dogs and giving them the right stuff so they can enjoy their lives to the fullest!
