Our Baby, a German Shepherd is right at home with Southford Groomer. The owner is always available and will always accomodate your request. I am glad she picked Southbury to make all our babies feel special.

Like most pet owners, we feel like our McGee is a part of our family. In looking for a groomer, after trying many, we choose Southford Grooming to be the absolute best. Both Melanie and Jen have a true calling and we have never had a better experience than watching them take such good care of our little guy. If you are looking for groomers who will take the best care of your pet, Southford Grooming Company should be at the front of the line in your choices. You will not be disappointed.

Trini and Bruce just love going to see Sue and her staff at Pet Aesthetics. They are so very caring and knowledgeable with our dogs. Trini is always happy to be there, even when we pop in for a visit. The dogs look fabulous when they are donel Thanks ladies for taking such good care of our furry friends.

Southford Grooming. I cannot say that Vanille loves being left, ANYWHERE, but they do a great job!
jennifer July 27, 2012 at 01:24 AM
Thanks Deb, your support means the world to me!!!! I still can't believe how long it's been since the first time I groomed Ozzy. He was one of the first dogs I groomed when I took over Pat's shop. I think he was just as nervous as I was!!! LOL

My big boy Eli is so happy getting handsome by Jen at Southford Grooming. He loves going. I am comfortable with him there, knowing he is in happy, caring, and knowledgeable hands. You are the BEST!!

My sweet maltese mix Bella is a perfect angel at home, but I can vouch for how anxious she gets for grooming. The girls at Southford Grooming welcomed her and made her as happy and comfortable during this stressful event as she can possibly be. She's never looked better or left a grooming shop in a happier state of mind.

Whenever our boy Guinness goes for his grooming he comes back happy. Jen takes great care of him while he is there. It's like doggie day spa.

Sue and the staff at Pet Aesthetics are fantastic. My two big Samoyeds, Noyac and Deacon are more than a handful of fur and energy. They love going for grooming, and come home looking fabulous.
Greg July 30, 2012 at 01:00 AM

Susan and her staff at pet aesthetics. She truly cares about what she does. if there's a holiday she will open on her day off to ensure she meets our needs. She is passionate about the natural and wholesome products that shd carries. Our dog Leo had horrible skin and after Susan's recommendation of goats milk he was doing better after a few weeks. Eventhough were military and have since moved , when we visit family we always make it a point to bring our other dog pookie by!

Susan and the staff at Pet Aesthetics are friendly, polite, knowledgable, and always willing to go the extra mile for me and my dogs. Susan goes out of her way to help pets looking for homes as well as looking out for their owners. I myself recieved a dog through her when it was looking for a home. My dog loves to visit the shop, and I never worry about the quality of the service nor products I recieve there. I hope the shop that deserves to win (Pet Aesthetics) does win.

Sue and her crew at Pet Aesthetics are wonderful. Four years ago I brought our frisky little Portuguese Water Dog pup Lulu in for her first puppy visit. When I picked her up she was glowing - I had never seen her so calm and mellow! Since then, whenever I say "Lulu, we're going to the grooomer" she beams with joy.

I know my Dobes are always taken care of with Pet Aeshetics and come home looking spectacular! An extra thanks for Sue's pet food knowledge, she knows her foods!!!

Alex and I both love Sue, Erin and the rest of the crew at Pet Aesthetics

Being in the pet food industry I have visited many stores, but every visit to Pet Aesthetics has found me admiring the quality work and great customer service that Sue and her staff offer...to the point of traveling to Southbury to have my pets bathed and loved there! A special thanks to all the kisses Erin gives little Chance!!

My Border Collie "Emma Louise" is the talk of the Obedience Class with her beautiful new hair cut. Thanks Sue for taking such good care of her.

Southford Grooming is the BEST and SO LOVING. Mel and Jen are wonderful and treat my Tucker with so much love and CARE! Hugs to both of you, Cindy

Hands down, the very best is Southford Grooming Company. Gunner, our 9 year old English Cocker Spaniel, LOVES going to his grooming appointment with Jen. He races through the door each time as he knows what a pleasant experience it will be. We feel so comfortable leaving him there as we know that he is in very capable, loving hands! We have lived in several states, have had several dogs, and have experienced many groomers over the years. But we found the absolute BEST when we found Jen about 6 years ago. Gunner adores her and so do we! What a fantastic job she does in grooming him. When we pick him up, he looks ready to be awarded a "Best in Show" ribbon. Seriously! Gunner gets numerous compliments, even from complete strangers, after his grooming appointment. The groomers at Southford Grooming Company are experts at what they do. We travel a bit of a distance to get Gunner to their shop, but it is so worth it! Two thumbs up from us . . . and all four paws up from Gunner! Great job!

Sue, Erin and Danielle at Pet Aesthetics are the best! We love going to them. Not only are the great groomers but they are very knowledgeable with training ideas and food nutrition. They come home smelling and looking great!

Pet Aesthetics is the best place in town. Love everyone there.
