Client Testimonial

"My White West Highland Terrier has been groomed by Debonnaire Dog since her first grooming in 2000, Paisley wags her tail upon entering and contentdedly sits in the arms of the staff while I leave. I have never been disappointed in the grooming that Mark, Charis and Staff provide and feel comfortable knowing that our dog is in safe hands."

Client Testimonial

"For thirteen years now, we've been customers of the Debonaire Dog. Mark is the only groomer our dog Chloe has ever known. The thought has never crossed our minds to try another groomer. Charis and all of the staff are gentle, loving and always accommodate our needs. They are professional, reliable and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a groomer."

"Hey, just want to tell you that we are always so excited to pick Oscar up after a day at your Spa. His make-over is always amazing, and he comes home and owns the neighborhood! Keep up the great work - love you guys!"

Client Testimonial

"We are so very grateful to have been clients of The Debonaire Dog since its opening in 1985. Since that date, we have taken a total of six "kids in fur coats" to Mark and Charis, and no matter how scruffy and bedraggled they are when we deliver them, they always emerge looking like show dogs! The very best part is that they wag their tails in anticipation of grooming just as much as they do when we pick them up. A tail wag is worth a thousand words!!

Thank you so much for your extraordinary patience, your exceptional skills, and for loving our dogs almost as much as we do ..."

"We first started taking Bailey to see Mark and crew in 2000 so when Joey came along in 2007 there was no question where he would go. The boys always look (and smell!!) fabulous when they come home from Debonaire Dog. Everyone is so caring and accommodating, I always recommend them if someone is looking for a groomer. When we tell the boys they're going to see Mark at Debonaire Dog the night before their appointment they always do the happy dance!!"

"The Debonaire Dog opened in 1985 and I believe our family was one of the first to walk through the doors!! Back then we had a beautiful Toy Poodle named Tinker and soon after a Bichon Frise named Bailey. No one could get them dolled up like Mark. We asked for what he called the 'puppy cut'. It made them look as cute as buttons. We always teased that no one could be in the same room as Bailey after grooming day....she KNEW how good she looked!!

When I moved to Toronto and had my own dog, a Golden Retriever named Mabel, it didn't make sense to find a salon closer. It is worth the drive to bring them out to Oakville. My second dog, a rescued Golden named Wilbur required a bit more time and effort. His start in life was very rough so having his paws clipped and hair brushed isn't enjoyable for him. Mark is so patient! The whole team remembers Wilbur's special needs. He has grown to even enjoy his day getting 'buffed and puffed'! I highly recommend The Debonaire Dog - and often do!"
