Just read below to see what Sharon's customers are saying about her and Top Dog Groomers Chester.

When we first had Frank I took him to another groomers in Chester.  She was very rude about the breed and questioned why I had got a Pug and I felt anxious about leaving him.


After that experience I spoke to a friend who recommended Sharon. What a difference!!


Sharon was kind, welcoming and very professional. Sharon also made me feel at ease as she is used to dealing with Pugs. Sharon made me feel that my dog was very special and I felt very comfortable leaving frank with her.


We would not go anywhere else. Eight years on, Frank is still so excited when he arrives at Sharon’s.


We are still met with such professionalism and kindness and Frank absolutely loves the fuss he gets.


I would recommend Sharon to anyone. She has such a warm nature towards Frank and all the other dogs in her care.

Frank, The Pug

I have been taking Paddy to Sharon for over two years and I am always pleased with the result – a professional job well done by someone who obviously has the dog’s best interests at heart.

John Bennet, Connah’s Quay

We have taken our Springer Spaniel, Rosie, to Sharon for grooming on a regular basis for a number of years now. We have always been extremely satisfied with the results as she has always done exactly as asked. She is always very friendly so we have never had any concerns about leaving Rosie in her care.

 Sharon & Paul Hartley

Dear Sharon,


Just a short letter to thank you for once again fitting Heidi and Lucy in at short notice for their grooming appointment. After being groomed at Top Dog Groomers they always look fantastic and I know they have been very happy in your care.


I would highly recommend your services to dog owners having used Top Dog Groomers for many years. As you know you were recommended to me by word of mouth.


Heidy and Lucy look forward to seeing you in June for their next appointment.


Yours Sincerely,

Donna Arundell, Chester

I have been taking my Westies to be groomed by Sharon for over 10 years.


Sharon was a huge support when my first Westie, Molly, passed away last year; understanding all the emotions I went through.


Molly loved Sharon and always looked well groomed. Sharon now grooms my Westie puppy, Milly, who is always happy to go and see Auntie Sharon.


Sharon is very professional, providing an excellent service with lots of love included.


She always asks what I want and is very good at the lovely Westie cut.


Having been to two or three dog groomers before I found Sharon, I appreciate what a gem she is and Milly’s tail confirms that.


I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending ‘Top Dog’ to anyone.


Yours Faithfully,

 Joy Whibberley, Waverton

I have been taking my Dog to Sharon for around 2 years. He is a very timid dog and gets very frightened and nervous at most things.


When I take Billy to be cut, he loves going to Sharon; she makes him feel very relaxed and safe whilst he is in her care.


I have no worries leaving Billy knowing he will feel happy and safe to be in her care. I would highly recommend Sharon to anybody as she was recommended to me by a friend too.


We wouldn’t think about taking Billy to anyone else.



Nicky Churchill

Dear Sharon,


I would like to thank you for the excellent attention to detail and care shown when you gave Pip her first grooming and trim.


Pip likes nothing better than to do what Cocker Spaniels do best, which is to get tangled up in bushes. Consequently, I brought her in to you with a fair bit of matting and tangles, particularly her ears but you did a first class grooming on her coat and feathering, which is an important visual feature on Cockers.


I also just want to say that when I collected Pip from you she appeared to be very relaxed and happy.


Many thanks Sharon and I will be bringing Pip in to see you again soon.


Yours Sincerely,

John Williams, Great Boughton

We have taken both of our dogs to Sharon at ‘Top Dog Groomers’ for the past fourteen years or so.


Sharon is very professional regarding her grooming and has given us some very useful advice over the years.


Sharon understands the different dog breeds very well and how best to clip a specific breed. She takes into account the type of coat the individual dog has etc.  and points out what the owners should pay particular attention to in order to keep the dog comfortable and prevent any foreseeable problems by lack of good grooming.


Sharon does a very god job. She never rushes the dog and is very aware of trying to create a good relationship with the dog so as to cause as little stress as possible.


I would definitely recommend Sharon at Top Dog Groomers.

Sue Wynn, Upton

My Westie, Georgie, has been groomed at Top Dog Groomers since she was six months old.


For the past seven years, Sharon has always been kind and patient and done an excellent job.


She even regained Georgie’s trust when she was reluctant to have her nails clipped due to an incident at the vets.


I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon at Top Dog Groomers.

Sue, (and Georgie!)

I have been taking my dogs to Sharon (Top Dog Groomers) for the past 12 years.


They always look pristine when I collect them.


Sharon does an excellent job and always puts their well being first and is always helpful with good advice as needed.


I would definitely recommend Top Dog Groomers.

Shelagh Liversage, Boughton

(a very appreciative customer)

The first time I took my very nervous and timid Poodle, Holly, to Top Tog Groomers, I left her there shivering and shaking.


Sharon worked really hard to gain Holly’s trust and when I take her now, she marches up the drive with her head held high and her tail wagging.


She emerges a couple of hours later looking absolutely gorgeous.


Thank you Sharon.

Jo Trafford and Holly

We have been taking Charlie our Westie to Top Dog Groomers for approximately 8 years now and would recommend Sharon to anybody who may be looking for a pet groomer.


We use Top Dog Groomers because Sharon cares about our Westie and by knowing that she does make us feel comfortable in leaving him with her.


Sharon has a wealth of pet care and health knowledge and is a good source of information if we have any concerns about Charlie.


We take him for a haircut 4 or 5 times a year and he always comes out looking great and Sharon always makes time for a little chat to let us know how he has been during his stay.

Rob & Liz Houston, Upton

We have been bringing our little Yorkie, Scrappy and Westie, Stella to Top Dog for 10 years.


Sharon is well experienced, delightful, energetic and professional.


Her love of dogs is very obvious.


The standard of grooming is high, which you can particularly see in the style and whiteness of the Westie coat.


Our dog was having skin problems and Sharon worked hard on special shampooing and care for sensitive skin.


She also can give advice on products to use.


We would highly recommend Top Dog Groomers to any dog lover.

Fred and Carol Wright, Saltney

We have been taking Sam to Top Dog Groomers from when he was a puppy.


He has a ‘pamper day’ from Sharon every 6 weeks or so.


He always comes back looking amazing, smelling beautiful and above all, happy.


We highly recommend taking your dog to Sharon Hynes at Top Dog Groomers; she is very skilled, dedicated and caring.

Jim & Bev Gaskin, Hoole

I have been a client of Top Dog Groomers for the past nine years bringing my Bichon Frise and my Border Terrier.


I can only say good things about Sharon’s skills as a professional dog groomer. I have also had many compliments about the way my dogs look.


Also and very importantly, Sharon cares about the dogs she deals with. My dogs have visited her from puppy hood and are totally relaxed and happy when they are in her care. I know that I can trust her; I would not take me dogs anywhere else.


Highly recommended.

Mrs Sue Stetten, Broughton

I have known Sharon for numerous years.


This letter is dedicated to the high professional grooming skills that have been bestowed on our dogs on every visit.


Our dogs are eager to go into her premises, show no sign of stress and finish looking and smelling perfect.


That alone speaks volumes.


One Happy Owner

Mrs A Johnson, Chester


Since Sharon started her business 15 years ago, we first took our Mixed Breed Jasper who absolutely adored Sharon. He was always groomed to perfection and exactly how we wanted him groomed as Sharon knew exactly what style of makeover would suit him.

After Jasper died we eventually got another dog, Daisy, a little Westie but I like a specific style and Sharon grooms her to perfection every time.

Daisy, like Jasper, adores her pampering sessions and we would have no hesitation recommending Sharon.  

Sharon is professional but also very friendly and her knowledge is second to none.


Mr & Mrs J Guest, Wales

(She's the best)

I have been bringing my daughters, two Bichons to Sharon for many years now and wouldn't consider taking them anywhere else.

They both have very bad skin and warts and many other medical problems; they aren't really groomed at home and Sharon has never made us feel awkward and has always given advice and shown compassion.  

She grooms them to a high standard and stops them from being shaved to an inch of their lives which I have seen so many times before with other groomers.

Sharon treats our dogs like her own.  I have seen her talking to other customers but she makes us feel like our dogs are the only ones she grooms!

She is a lovely girl, a pleasure to know, easy to talk to and is someone without doubt I'd recommend!


Mr Booth, Chester

(Sharon’s my little star)

I have taken Bertie to Top Dog Groomers since he was a puppy and have been very impressed with the service. 


Sharon Hynes is extremely passionate about what she does and Bertie adores her. 


The important thing for me is that Sharon listened to what I asked, and gave me good advice - Bertie looks absolutely gorgeous when he leaves! 


I would recommend Top Dog Groomers to every dog owner, always, and would never take Bertie anywhere else.


Carly McKay

Great Boughton



I have been taking my dog Hugo to be groomed with Sharon for 6 years.


Hugo is a Irish Coated Wheaton terrier. This means he has long blonde wiry hair that becomes quite matted.  


Sharon is always pleased to see Hugo and immediately puts him at ease. She has a very soothing nature with him and I trust her with his precious coat.  


The appointments vary between 2-3 hours depending on what he has done.  Sharon listens to my requests and will advise me on what she thinks is best.


I like taking Hugo to Sharon she provides a convenient local service that I believe is good value for money. 

Hugo always looks a million dollars when I pick him up and we often call him Mr Fluffy.

Many thanks


Heather Bray-Smith

Since we've had our Border Collie Nel, she's only ever gone to Sharon and she has always been treated as one of her own dogs and always grooms her to my quirky little requests; she always looks stunning.


We've had Nel since she was 8 months old and she is now 14 years old. 


Due to Nel's age, Sharon is very sympathetic to her physical needs and makes sure that she is not put under any extra stress or discomfort.


We cannot recommend Sharon highly enough, and we have done so to numerous people who have also become regular clients.


Nic, Chris and Nel 

Hi Sharon,

I'm not sure if I sent in a testimonial so wanted to say how much we value the regular grooming for our Retriever Tess.

We are always impressed with your care and attention to detail, and also your flexibility with regard to booking details.


Top Dog Groomers has always been a service that we can rely on, and a service that our dog enjoys and seems confident with.

We look forward to many more years and do recommend to friends.



Ros Saunt

I have been taking my Lhasa Apso, Ollie, to Sharon since we adopted him 2 years ago.  

He always comes home looking lovely and Sharon has taken the utmost care to make him feel secure and cared for.  


We know he loves going because his tail goes wild when we say, "Do you want to go and see Sharon?"


Seriously though, it is lovely to know I am leaving my baby with someone kind, capable and professional.  And to top it all - he smells great!  


Thanks Sharon.


Rach & Andy.

My doggy, a small Yorkie, is fairly shy and nervous.


Having him booked in for a 'cut-n-blow' with Top Dog Groomers every now and then is great!   He comes out picture pretty!   


Sharon's lovely tone of voice makes him comfortable, despite the fact that he so very well knows that a bath is inevitable. 

We don't like his tail hair cut and Sharon remembers our preferences, which is much appreciated. 

Thanks for a great service and comfort that he is always in good hands!


I have been going to Sharon at Top Dog Groomers since Roly, my Cavalier King Charles was a puppy. 

Sharon has a natural affinity with dogs which is obvious as Roly just walks in, tail wagging. Believe me, he would not do that if he wasn't happy to do so!

Sharon always fits her time around me when making appointments, even working her day off when I've been really stuck.

I would highly recommend Top Dog Groomers for your pet. Very friendly and warm environment. I would never go anywhere else.



Jane Challinor

We have used Sharon for over 7 years for our two dogs, a Bichon Frise and a Lhasa Apso. Both dogs always go in very happy and come out looking and smelling great! 

She always accommodates to us working full time, and nothing's too much trouble. Sharon is a lovely person and takes great pride in what she does, would highly recommend her to anyone.

Hallelujah for Top Dog Groomers and Sharon!

Sharon has been grooming my Shih tzu, Bonnie and all my previous dogs for years!  I wouldn’t dream of taking them anywhere else.  


Not only does Sharon do a very professional grooming job, she is an absolute natural with dogs.  


They have all loved going to her, even my Rough Collie, Taylor who hated being groomed!

Sharon is a one off – she is always smiling, does a very professional job and has a natural affinity with both dogs and their owners.

A huge thank you Sharon from the whole Tomlinson family!

L. Tomlinson

I have been a loyal customer of Top Dog Groomers since July 2004.  I cannot recommend Sharon highly enough.  


She is professional and excellent at her job, and I know my two dogs are always in safe hands.  


They return to me after each appointment fully groomed and immaculate.


The facilities at Top Dog Groomers are brilliant, and you always feel like your pet is given that 'extra special' attention.  


One of my dogs had a serious medical condition, but Sharon with her experience and expertise knew all about the condition, so no worry was needed and I could continue to have my dog groomed there.

As already said I cannot recommend Sharon and Top Dog Groomers highly enough.

Excellent service.

Emma Binns
Christleton, Chester

I have been a client of Top Dog Groomers for 6 years now albeit I have known of Sharon for much longer than that. 



My dog absolutely loves going there and she comes home looking and smelling amazing. 



 I have recommended Top Dog Groomers to a number of friends who all have glowing reports of the service they received. 



Sharon is a true animal lover which is clear to be seen when your dog heads off into the salon with her without a backward glance! 



Do your ‘best friend’ a favour and book an appointment now!




I grew up over the road from Sharon and since a very young age she has always had a passion and love for dogs, so when we got our first dog a golden retriever Stella she has gone to Sharon to be groomed.


A little timid at first but with lots of love and care from Sharon Stella now goes to Sharon and happily walks in and looks fantastic when I pick her up.


Would recommend Sharon to anyone looking for a groomer as Top Dog Groomers is the best

Ali Feely 


Our Border has been going to Sharon for the last 4 years.


He is always very excited when he visits which is true testament to how Sharon cares for him while she cuts his hair.

Scooter almost appears disappointed when we go and pick him up.


Sharon is also very reasonably priced. 


We would recommend her to anyone. 


Paul and Claire Jones

I have been using Top Dog groomers for ten years and am so glad I found Sharon as Poppy was a very shy & nervous rescue dog when we first went.


Sharon took great care of her and she now goes very happily 2 or 3 times a year & always comes back looking very smart & happy to have got rid of her thick coat.



It must be more than 35 doggy years that my boys and girls have been looked after by a true gem; that gem is the one the only Sharon at Top Dog Groomers Chester.


My four dogs love her and so do I. Her work is 1st class.


Many Thanks Sharon.


Barbara Barker Vicar Cross Chester.

I have been taking my miniature schnauzer, Poppy, to Sharon for over 11 years and I always recommend her to anyone looking for a dog groomer.


She is very experienced and has the dog's best interest at heart. I have never felt anxious leaving Poppy with Sharon as she always makes both the owner and the dog feel at ease and Poppy loves the fuss Sharon makes of her.


Sharon always does an extremely professional job and cuts her exactly the way I ask her to.  


Poppy comes back looking (and smelling!) fantastic and I wouldn't consider taking her anywhere else.

Many Thanks, Sharon.

Rachel, Chester

Sharon is at all times very professional and reliable. I can always trust her to  do an excellent job on  Macy

Cathy Edwards

Cody has been going to Sharon at Top Dog Groomers all his life, so 6 years now. 


He wags his tail going in, and is still wagging it coming out. 


I know Sharon takes really good care of him whilst he is there but this care has extended to whilst he is at home with his family. 


Once we found a tic and the vets was closed.  Never fear, Sharon was on hand with reassurance and advice by text, and the next day she contacted me to make sure Cody was alright!


Sharon always does a lovely job of grooming Cody, and I would not trust anyone else. I hear horror stories of dogs coming home with nicks and cuts, or a bad hair do, but Cody always looks handsome and no injuries. 


He wouldn't be so pleased to see her if she wasn't taking good care of him, would he. 


Appointments are always to suit us too, which is important with our busy work schedule. We get a text after each appointment with our next one, which is handy.


I would like to say a huge thank you to Sharon and Top Dog Groomers!





Janene and Cody


Both of our cavaliers have always been groomed by Sharon.  Ted from an early age loved going to Sharons but sadly passed away last year and she was very supportive in our loss.  
Cherry the once very timid rescue cavalier still goes to Sharon.  She treats her as one of the family and always makes her look and smell great afterwards!
We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Top Dog Groomers to any dog owner.  
Thank you Sharon xx
Alison & Tom Colley

Our little terrier, Poppy has become very weary of getting a haircut. Last time she even tried to make a run for it down the road!


Having heard lots of good things about Top Dog roomers we thought we would give it a go. And we were not disappointed.


Sharon has a lovely way with the dogs. Poppy was a lot calmer and didn't try and run away!!


When we picked her up later, not only did she look good but she seemed a lot happier too.


We will definitely be going back and recommending Sharon to our friends.

Sharon Hudson

Jake our Working Cocker Spaniel has been going to Sharon for grooming on a regular basis.  He enjoys going, and will pull on his lead to get up the drive to the front door.

He has a long coat, and he is a very active dog, therefore his cost gets very matted and dirty.

Sharon does such a fantastic job, and he looks great when we collect him.

I feel that he also enjoys the experience, and feels better walking with a renewed spring in his step.

Mrs Carol Curry

Sharon has been looking after my Border Terriers Barney and Sweep since they were puppies.


When Barney first went to Sharon he had been hand stripped elsewhere and really hated it so Sharon clips him instead which he is much happier about.


She does a fantastic job with them and takes a lot of care.


Barney recently had a hip operation and Sharon really took a lot of time to make sure he was happy and comfortable going for his first post op hair cut!


They both always come out looking gorgeous!


Jane Smith July 2013

We first took our Springer Spaniel Gemma and Boxer George to Sharon in 2003. I felt very comfortable taking them to Sharon, they always came back happy and looking stunning.


Sharon took special care of Gemma who suffered from bad skin allergies. She  was very compassionate with George who developed cancer. They are now in doggie heaven. Sharon was a great support to us throughout this time.


Our current family consists of 2 Boxers “Princess” Hetti and “Prince” Albert as Sharon calls them!

They adore Sharon and she treats them as if they were her own. They always return home totally chilled and looking gorgeous.


I would highly recommend anyone to take their dogs to Top Dog Groomers. You will warm to Sharon as soon as you meet her and see the passion she has with dogs.


Appointments are always to suit us too, which is important with our busy work schedule. We get a text after each appointment with our next appointment date, which is really handy.


The grooming appointments are never rushed and Sharon has always been very accommodating. 


A huge thank you Sharon from all of us xxx 


Kim Huby & Paul Kelly



I would like to say a huge thank you to Sharon for the highly professional excellent makeover she performed on Tom my Shit Tzu.

I live in Wales and normally have Tom groomed at home however, I have been staying with my daughter in Chester and Tom desperately needed a makeover, I was recommended to Sharon by a friend of my daughters.

Tom normally hates being showered and grooming sessions can be a bit fraught, however with Sharon he was calm and relaxed. It is obvious she loves dogs and knows the best way to handle and treat each individual dog.

Tom looked absolutely gorgeous when I went to pick him up. I would highly recommend Sharon and will certainly be taking Tom back to her.

Thanks again    

Joan Arthur and Tom
