Dandini's Dog Grooming



About me

I run and own Dandini's Dog Grooming in Portsmouth which was established 1962. I was lucky enough to join the business 10 years ago after training at Absolutely Animals in London and was mentored by Jan the current owner at the time who had been grooming for over 40 years herself. I took over the business 3 years later and have since trained other groomers who work with me still and help maintain the long standing reputation of the business. We strive to offer our clients a relaxed environment for their dogs, for the standard of pet grooming to be high and the dogs treated like one of our own. We believe in maintaining our standards by continually developing our skills through progressive training.
I now also run "The Training room at Dandini's" which is a private training school that runs along side the salon in a separate room at the rear of the building. I teach students to learn how to groom dogs and guide them through their Level 2 and 3 City and Guilds qualifications. I keep the training to very small groups having a maximum of only 3 students at once.

    Very highly recommended. The whole team is fantastic! My rescue who used to be very apprehensive loves going there now. The girls do a brilliant job, not a single hair is out of place when my standard poodle is finished. I can't reccomend them highly enough.

  • Harriet McIntyre

    I highly recommend Caroline & her team at Dandinis. I’ve been going with my 3 boys for over 8 years. My Westie (now passed) , my cairn/border cross & my young Cockapoo. All my different coats & always come away looking superb. I wouldn’t go anywhere else & cant recommend them enough.

  • Andrea Samways

    I really struggled to find a groomer where my cocker spaniel would settle. She absolutely loves Caroline and really enjoys her time at Dandinis. She has always been groomed exactly how we like. We now have a puppy as well so are introducing him too.

  • Joanne Birks

    I have a 4 year old Goldendoodle who has been groomed by Caroline since she was a puppy. I have always been happy with her groom and given lots advice by Caroline especially on brushing technique & the correct brush & finish off with a comb through. This has been valuable advise as Bella no longer gets matted. Thank you Caroline & your lovely team at Dandinis.

    Both my Beagle and Bassett hound go to Caroline and the team at Dandinis they are absolutely fantastic with them as niether liked a bath. They have them so relaxed in their saloon and always leave with waggie tails and look fantastic. Can’t recomend Caroline and the team enough to any one. Well done great environment and always welcoming. Thanks Caroline
