Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this excellent, rarely available lifestyle business, which was set up less than 3 years ago and has tremendous potential going forward as the business becomes more and more established in this high street location.

They turned over £20,000 in the 16/17 financial year and the business is growing all the time.

They are a general-purpose dog groomer, offering a variety of services,

•Styling dog's coats
•Clippings nails
•Inspecting teeth

They also sell natures menu Natural dog food and are active on social media, together with a website which can be found at


We feel an injection of marketing would assist in promoting the business, together with longer hours and more product sales, which would take the business to the next level.

An internal inspection to appreciate what’s on offer is highly recommended.
