“We were just six months old when we met Sharon from Designer Muttz to have our first haircut. We love seeing Sharon every six weeks to keep us nice and trimmed.

Thanks Sharon for taking great care of us.”

“Sharon @ Designer Muttz has kept our beautiful 2 year old cavoodle Leo neat and trimmed, keeping his curly and wooly coat under control.

When we first visited Sharon Leo’s coat was rather out of control, but not for long…We have a regular haircut and grooming session and he has a beautiful coat now, that is really easy to manage, he can always see as Sharon keeps the hair well trimmed from his eyes, Leo doesn’t get too hot in summer and he has a fleece jacket to wear for the cooler winter nights.

Leo & I recommend a visit to Sharon in Lota, for a great dog grooming experience & a good chat.”

“I have been taking my dog Eddie to Sharon since he was 3 months old. I decided to take him to designer Muttz as Sharon was the only clipper who would let me stay with Eddie until he got used to being clipped. Over the years Eddie has had some skin problems and Sharon has recommended certain creams for him, which have been very helpful. I am very happy with the service I have received from Designer Muttz.”

” I have been using dog grooming services for many years so I’m not new to them however since I found Designer Muttz 6 years ago I believe I found a service that is a step above the rest. The service is professional, with my dogs receiving 1:1 care in a well-equipped, spotless ‘salon’. When I walk the dogs I’m often asked where I get them groomed as their cuts look great… I am always happy to refer to Designer Muttz.”


“Our Rosie is a vivacious female Shih Tzu and has been seeing Sharon for the last 18 months. Sharon has been fantastic with Rosie. She is very gentle and always returns Rosie looking trimmed and beautiful. We find Sharon’s prices are very reasonable for the great service she provides.

We are very happy with Sharon, and her great service and her warm personality keeps us bringing Rosie back. Thank you Sharon – all the very best for the success of your business!”

“After having several bad experiences with groomers I started taking my dog to Designer Muttz. I have been going there for about 3 years and have always been extremely satisfied with the customer service, environment and the outcome of the grooming. As my dog is very timid it is important to me that she is comfortable with the surroundings and groomer.

I have no hesitation at all in highly recommending Designer Muttz.”

“Libby is my name and I am a 5 year old Maltese/Shih tzu. I have been going to Sharon at Designer Muttz for 4 years now and my mum is always so pleased with how I look when Sharon has finished. She clips me, scissors me, cuts my nails, fixes up my anal glands (oooh I don’t like that much, but she is very kind about it), bathes me and blow-dries my coat after she has put some perfume on me. I look and feel great. My mum says the best thing about my grooming is that she is allowed to stay with me, as I’m a bit of a sook. Recently I had a 6-day holiday at Sharon’s, of course I missed Mum and Dad, but Sharon looked after me very well. I think that I have been very lucky to find a groomer like Sharon, especially as her service is so personalised.”

“Sharon has been grooming our Spoodle Milo for nearly two years. In that time we have been impressed by Sharon’s thorough grooming services. He has never looked better”

“When I need to be away from home, I pack my dog’s bag and tell him that we are going to Sharon’s.  He gets super excited as he knows that he will be going on holiday too:  he is loved and plays with the other dogs.  I trust that my dog will be looked after as it is Sharon’s own, that is more than I can ask for.  I have no hesitation in recommending Sharon to look after your dog when you cannot.”

We first brought home little Missy, a beautiful and very cute, Maltese x West Highland Terrier at just seven weeks of age, back in 2005.  As new puppy owners, we did all the things we knew how to welcome this very special, new addition into our home. Although she didn’t malt, being a long haired breed, it didn’t take long for her coat to lengthen and her eyes disappear from view.  Our initial thoughts were that we would just “trim” her as needed – how wrong were we!  We attempted this but soon resorted to taking her to a groomer located nearby.  Poor little Missy came home traumatised and who knows what they did, but we knew instantly that nor she or us would return to that particular establishment.  Our next few grooming experiences, although better, we never got to see the same groomer twice which didn’t sit well with Missy or us.  We found a card for “Designer Muttz” on a community notice board and made an appointment with Sharon. Here we are, eight years on and we have been completely satisfied with Sharon and Designer Muttz and thus had no reason to even consider another groomer.  On each appointment, Missy was beautifully clipped and groomed from top to bottom and most importantly, she was calm and at ease when we collected her.  Although our beautiful Missy has sadly had to leave us way too soon, it is without hesitation that I will continue to recommend Designer Muttz as truly professional, trusted and respected.  Delighted with every groom that Sharon provided to Missy, we often received comments on how good she looked.  On many occasions, we also used the “Sharon Hotel” for Missy.  Leaving a dog when you have to travel or be away, is one thing, however leaving your dog with someone whom you know will take as much care of your dog as she does her own, is very reassuring. We often used to wonder why Missy’s appointments with Sharon were so long and did she really need that much pampering.  It is the attention to detail, personal service and expertise that Sharon provides that warrants the time Sharon allocates and certainly shows.  Even at Missy’s last haircut, Sharon showed empathy, compassion and sincerity and I was able to stay to assist. Sharon’s experience and industry knowledge is also to be commended and her recommendations well respected.  Thank you Sharon for everything and to anyone looking for a fantastic groomer, or a pleasant place to leave your dog whilst away, look no further than Designer Muttz.
