    My beautiful boy hunter had a lovely pamper today he came back smelling amazing!!! And the staff were so lovely I was a bit worried about leaving him as he gets worried on his own but they reassured me he was fab!! Can’t wait for his next groom ♥️♥️
  • Beau absolutely looks and smells adorable. Thank you Charlotte for making her first puppy groom experience so relaxing she went in a bit nervous and came out a happy confident little 3 month old puppy. We can wait for our next visit thank you Team can’t recommend you enough 🐾🐶💖
  • Couldn’t recommend enough!! My Bonnie absolutely loved coming in for her groom and came out looking fabulous! Thank you!! 🐶 🐾 💗 xx
  • Second-time customer now with our Cooper (Pekingese) and both times he has had a good time and returned with a great hair cut. Pekingese don't stereotypically have a short cut, which they did do for us. Both times Cooper has come back been SOO happy, bubbly and energetic following, especially in the warm weather. Less hair is clearly liberating... lol He is happy, we are happy and we would certainly recommend. Thank you
  • Excellent Groomers, very friendly and accommodating. Bobby the Shi Tzu came home smelling delish🥰and very handsome 👍
  • This place is a god send, so close to where we live, is just one bonus, but the real gem is the service received and the warm and friendly professionalism. Our EBT George, is quite stubbon when it comes to having his teeth cleaned, and it takes two of us to stop him pulling away, but Sue made this look like a piece of cake, when recently having his sonic scale and polish. George was so happy when we picked him up, that he actually sniffed and kissed other dogs on his walk home, considering he is a nervous boy, this is wonderful to see him so relaxed, and no sedative is used for this procedure at Muttley and Mabel’s, just Sue’s magic touch! Thank you very much. Congratulations on you’re first year, here’s to many more. X
  • we took both our rescue greyhounds to have their teeth cleaned, and a bath afterwards. everyone was wonderful and the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves! Sue (veterinary nurse and teeth cleaning legend) worked wonders on our boy Rocket's teeth, which had never been cleaned before. His breath doesn't smell rotten any more! Tilly got lots of treats from Sue and was well pampered too! will definitely be coming back and recommending to the greyhound owners community!
    thank you so much for looking after our babies so well xx
  • Had my dog Candy’s curls cut off for the summer. Lovely salon and very clean, the ladies very attentive and would recommend.
  • Absolutely brilliant place! I took my Westie Maxwell and my sisters Border Lexi to be groomed yesterday, they look fantastic!!! The girls are lovely, we’re so pleased, wouldn’t go anywhere else! Thank you😘 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Would highly recommend. They did an amazing job on our very hyper, stubborn doggy Summer 😂. She looks great, will certainly be coming back for her next groom there. Staff were really friendly too!

    Highly recommend seeing Sue for teeth cleaning, She's amazing with animals especially nervous ones. She's full of knowledge and knowing your pet is being cared for by someone so kind and sweet puts you at ease.

    Wiley has had 2 puppy grooms so far with Natalie. And I can’t tell you how amazing he looks after. Also the added touch of a bow is so lovely.
  • Amazing service and extremely professional with beautiful facilities ! Thank you !! 👍
  • They did an AMAZING job on our new rescue Peter, he needed a really good cut & some TLC and he came bouncing back home all happy and proud - thanks ! X
  • Alfie’s first time at a groomers and I can’t wait to bring him back! It was like dropping a child off at a soft play area - he ran in and didn’t look back to say goodbye! 😂 Love the menu of additions and the 3 for £5 package!
    Natalie did a very good job 😄
  • Highly recommend!! Buster came for the 1st time today I can easily say it’s the best haircut he has ever had he has had so many compliments already 🐶
  • I have used Muttley & Mabel a handful of times now and I have 0 complaints! The best bit is they don’t use cages! Place is clean and looks looked after. Rosie looks and smells lovely every time. All the staff are amazing and they remember who you and your dog are which gives it a personal touch! I would 100% recommend to everyone!
  • My two dogs love coming to Muttley and mabel. I pop to the local tesco while they spa and the staff always call when they are ready. Trims are very professional and both dogs smell lovely  happy customer
  • Friendly and clean very helpful staff and brilliant to put us at ease along with Gizmo would definitely use them again
  • Just picked Coco up from her 1st full groom. OMG how beautiful does she look. Such friendly people and such a great service. No hesitation in recommending.
  • Our usually nervous poodle who hates being groomed was so well behaved and seemed a lot calmer when we picked him up and looks so handsome so I'd say they're dog recommended.
  • I’ve never been disappointed, such a good and Professional Service, Matilda and mutley always come away looking so good. The staff are always friendly and helpful, I’m always pleased with the way my two come away,

    Our buddy had his full puppy groom yesterday, can’t believe the transformation. Very happy with the service Muttley & Mabel have provided for our little man. This is his 3rd visit here now, definitely recommend 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Have been using Muttley and Mabel since September last year - go every 4weeks and would highly recommend them the premises are amazingly clean bright open and not a cage in site. I have a 2 year old Cavapoo called Paddington and he always looks beautiful when I pick him up Thank you all- Just wish I could find a ladies hair dressers as good 😀🐶
  • Had my chihuahua's teeth cleaned today the staff were lovely & willows teeth look amazing thanks guys lovely to meet you all see you soon...😊
  • Absolutely brilliant. My dog being a rescue was always scared of new people so I was panicking about leaving him. However they assured me the best care would be given to my boy & that’s exactly what I got. Upon my return I was told he was very well behaved, loves the dryer & did as his told. He also smelt absolutely beautiful & looked much neater. Hudson can’t wait to see them again 
  • I would 100% recommend Muttley and Mabel, Rolo loved his time there and the ladies there were so helpful and friendly, he’s come back an even more beautiful looking dog, will definitely be using them all the time now, thank you so much ladies x

    Tia my 7 year old Bichon x Chihuahua went for her first groom yesterday and came out looking like a fluffy teddy bear. perfect cut and she didn't appear at all stressed after being thoroughly spoilt by all the lovely ladies at Muttley & Mabel. She will be back soon thank you xx
  • Nala loves coming here for her groom, mainly because she loves playing with the toys afterwards. Won’t take her anywhere else now, very friendly, highly recommend.

    We took our puppy, Rodney for his first trim, to Muttley and Mabel because of recommendations from a few people, and because the groomer we used to use with our previous dog, had left the place we used to go to. It was brilliant to see Natalie when we turned up to book the appointment, knowing that she does such an excellent job, and really looks after the dogs in her care. All the girls were lovely when we dropped him off, and the place is so open, bright and clean. But the best bit was when we picked him up, he was happy, and looked and smelled beautiful, thanks girls, We will definitely be coming back, and will be recommending you to all our doggy owning friends too x
  • Bertie loves his new salon, he is so much more relaxed going in and being left in the more than capable caring hands of the lovely ladies. Natalie cuts him exactly how we want and he smells gorgeous!!!! Definitely going to keep taking him here now, the actual groomers is clean, spacious & bright too! Thank you ladies for looking after Bertie so well when he comes. 🐶💕
  • I could not recommend enough! The loveliest staff who are so helpful and made my dog feel so at home and made her feel and look gorgeous. Really really pleased and highly recommend!
  • Highly recommend Muttley & Mabel! The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and go the extra mile. Seeing the setup and how they treat the dogs made it easy for us to leave our pampered pooch in their hands. We wouldn’t go anywhere else now - absolutely brilliant.
  • I find it very hard to find a groomer that my dog is ok with as she is very timid and frightened of everything. Mutley & mabel was recommended to me by my friend as my dog groomer had moved away😢 I was totally happy with there service and Molly was really happy when I collected her so we are both happy and will continue to use there services. Than you x
  • What a fantastic pooch parlour you have! Daisy Mai came away happy and looking like a complete princess! Would highly recommend you guys to anyone 5 ⭐️ xx
  • I loved bringing Milo for his puppy groom to Muttley and Mabel. Friendly and polite staff, who Milo adored. You always do such a wonderful job and make Milo look gorgeous. Thank you again and I will definitely be recommending you highly to friends and family. Amy x
  • Brought my girls Jessie & Lola in for their first ever groom. Muttley & Mabel staff were very welcoming and friendly. My girls came out smelling and looking Fabulous, highly recommend and will definitely be back again

  • I have been to Muttley and Mabel twice now. The staff are friendly, the premises is amazing and caters for every doggy need. With it's funky fresh colour scheme and up to date accessories it is THE place to take your pooch to be groomed. ANd what impressed me the most is despite the groomers having the skills to clip all the various breeds, they clearly understood that I have a Border Collie and other than maybe a nail trim no clipping is required. I would highly recommend them!
  • Vivienne and Annie had a lovely pamper today and smell gorgeous. As always staff friendly and gave a first class service. I would recommend all pet lovers to visit xx
  • Both our dogs came out very happy with their tails wagging. They looked and smelt great. The staff were really friendly and listened to what our dogs were like and what we wanted. We will definitely be back. Thank you Muttley & Mabel
  • My Cockerpoo Buddy was in a real pickle. He has really thick fur - he came out smelling lovely & all trimmed perfectly. Will def be coming back xx Thankyou ladies xx
  • Definitely recommend! I wouldn't go anywhere else now. The staff are truly great with my timid rescue dog- I think he ends up loving the pampering. I love the 1-1 grooming, and that the dogs are kept in doggy stables rather than pens. Staff are flexible and eager to meet your needs.
  • Yesterday I took Toffee to Muttley & Mabel for her first groom with them I have to say I am delighted, he looks fabulous the place it's self is amazing, and the staff are so very nice, thank you Natalie and to the friendly helpful ladies on reception Well impressed and appreciative professional groomers, so happy to have been recommended by friend. Once again many many thanks Ann Croft. Gold Star Service
  • Just got home with Terry after his first proper cut. Terry is a rescue and we weren’t sure how he’d be after his rough start in life, but everyone here was absolutely lovely. They made us all feel at ease and Terry seemed perfectly happy when we picked him up. This place really is special and it’s all down to the amazing staff and their personal approach. They even gave us a home baked treat for the road which he scoffed the second we got home. We will be back! (Cut was gorgeous too and he smells great! He seems much happier now he can see!) Thank you. X
  • Joey had his first visit to Muttley and Mabel yesterday and I couldn't be more happy. Thank you so much, he looks so smart and was extremely settled x
  • My Cocker Spaniel has had two visits to Muttley & Mable and each time I have been very impressed with the way they have looked after Hugo and their customer service. Very professional and ultra clean premises. Hugo also looks adorable .... thank you. I would highly recommend 👍

  • Thank you to Natalie and colleagues for doing such a wonderful job tidying Dottie up. She looks lovely and I think she feels better too. Gone are the straggly bits we tried to trim as well as the matted fur behind her ears. She looks so pretty and she seemed to enjoy her visit. See you next time,
  • We took took our two pugs to them today and they did an amazing job, thank you so much x

    The staff at at Muttley & Mabel sorted Doris out a treat. She looks & smells amazing. She was rather knotty after her recent holiday, trips to the beach & swimming in the river, but they have restored her to her former glory. Have rebooked & will recommend to friends.

    Wyatt had his first groom ever, he is 3 but hates being cleaned! He trotted off happily with Lisa as he had met her the day before. I think he was taken aback when she turned on the shower! He came out sparkling and beautifullly brushed as he is a shedder. It is a welcoming salon and very calm, Thank you Lisa for being patient. We have booked our next appointment!

    After having a dodgy cut elsewhere, I was slightly cautious about having my Japanese Spitz groomed again, but Nat did an absolutely amazing job! My dog looked like a brand spanking new (and thinner!) version of the one I took in earlier! And although she was slightly nervous to start with, they made her feel very happy and relaxed very quickly. Would definitely recommend

    I took Ted to Muttley & Mabel for the first time last week. What a lovely place, so happy to have found it. I was very pleased with how they cut him and the great service they provided. Ted loved his treat from the deli too. He is already booked in for his next groom here.

    Bought my Eddie in today and he loved his time with Natalie looking after him. As Natalie is the owner of a miniature dachshund called stretch she was really knowledgeable and helpful. His coat shines and he smells amazing all ready for a night out in Essex. Thanks was great to meet you both today and wish you every success. The branding is great and the facilities for the dogs are like a five star hotel.
  • From: Sue Southgate Subject: Toby! Message Body: Dear Mutley and Mabel I just wanted to say a big thank you for fitting my little Tobermory (Toby) in this morning. As we are new to the area, I was worried about finding a groomer for Toby that both he and I would be happy with, especially as he is now 11 years old and been to the same lovely groomer in Devon since he was a puppy. I found a girl that I was happy with in Colchester, and took him there a couple of times. However, she cancelled his appointment (at the last moment) on 4th July as she had back problems, and I understood, but was disappointed that she could not give me another appointment until 20th July (today). With the hot weather, his coat had become so thick and uncomfortable for him, as well as his claws being far too long, so we could hardly wait to get him to his 2 o clock appointment today. At 12 o clock, I had a text, saying she was cancelling again. I was so upset and started desperately trying to get Toby fitted in elsewhere. I am so very grateful to you for fitting him in, especially when you are so busy, and apologise for being the 'neurotic, upset woman on the end of the phone!!'  Natalie did a wonderful job and I was so pleased with her comment that 'he had been a little star!'  (How I wish I had discovered Mutley and Mabel in the first place)  Toby and I now look forward to many happy times coming to your 'salon' and have out next appointment booked.    With many grateful thanks        Sue Southgate (and Toby) x
