Hi, I’m Jo. the dog groomer in St. Ives.

I moved here in 2017 and I love that it is doggy paradise.

              I have been grooming professionally since 2014, and yes, it is the best job ever (most days!).  I have spent a lot of time in the company of dogs as well as other creatures, including jobs and work experience in veterinary surgeries and animal hospitals, volunteering at a sanctuary, and studying Animal Science and Behaviour.

              For me, grooming is about quality and comfort. For most breeds regular grooming is a necessity and should therefore be as pleasurable as possible. Your furry companion deserves my undivided attention whilst in my care and I work hard to ensure visits are an eagerly anticipated trip to the dog lady, and not the dreaded groomer!



  • All breeds, shapes, sizes, colours and flavours! Its impossible to choose a favourite
  • Creatures of all kinds. Particularly my cats; Ted, Penny and Stan
    My cats are the best cats obviously
  • Sweet – Mint Aero
  • Savoury – Pickled onion Monster Munch
  • Drink – Moscow Mule
  • The sea. It scares me a little
  • Dogs who appreciate my singing in the salon


  • People who don’t love dogs. Not to be trusted
  • People who don’t like creatures in general. Also not to be trusted
  • Peas. In any form


We were really happy with our first experience with Jo at ‘The Dog Groomer St Ives.’ She offered a very friendly and comprehensive service and we felt our dog was in safe, professional hands. Our dog looked lovely again after his haircut and we rebooked straight away for the next appointment. Thanks again. See you in December!

Thank you thank you Jo, we have taken our Welsh Terrier to quite a few groomers and to say he is a difficult dog is an understatement. However, your patience and professionalism really paid off. You have a way with these animals that few have mastered and it showed. Thank you so much. You did an amazing job. I would highly recommend Jo your dog is in very capable hands.

My two Cavapoos are very reluctant to have their coats groomed – Jo kindly rescued them after I tried to do it myself and they loved her ….so much so she has herself 2 more regular clients…..Thank you from Mojo and Gizmo (and Annie)

George my TT visited the “Dog Groomer St Ives” today as his usual groomer had to cancel his appointment last week, and I must say I’m thrilled with the results, Jo did a fantastic job, incorporating all the little tweaks I asked her for. I’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this lovely little salon, Jo is so approachable and was an instant hit with George. Thanks again, Julie & George

Paddy always leaves looking beautiful. Jo accommodates his mobility issues and makes him feel at ease (he hates baths) ❤️
