My Best Friend Dog Grooming


Langford, West Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire Border

About me

Hi my name is Clara and I am mum to Daisy the Working Cocker Spaniel and Ruby the Hungarian Vizsla. In May 2015 I started My Best Friend Dog Grooming and since then the salon has gone from strength to strength with a great reputation for quality and care.
In August 2017 I was lucky enough to employ Lindsey Crouch (also diploma qualified and also a member of groomers spotlight!) We work in a purpose built grooming cabin in the garden of my home in the Cotswold village of Langford, situated 1 mile from Lechlade, 4 Miles from Carterton and 5 miles from Faringdon.
Here at My Best Friend we only use the best quality natural shampoos (Wildwash and Hownd) and operate on a one to one basis, which is great for nervous dogs. Visiting dogs can roam the garden before and after a groom, obviously weather permitting!
I have always been animal mad and have fostered for various animal charities in the past. Until we moved to Oxfordshire in 2013 I was a trustee for The Cheltenham and North Cotswolds RSPCA spending many an hour helping to fundraise and organise events while every week working as a volunteer in the veterinary clinic.
We look forward to welcoming you and your best friend.

    I have been taking my pet Yorkshire terrier Billy for a number of years now and he always comes away looking amazing and he absolutely loves going to be groomed by Clara and her team. I would recommend 100%

  • Clara Roff

    Thank you Les and Billy Bear

  • Margot Clarke

    Clara and team at My Best Friend have groomed Bridie since she was a puppy and treat her as if she was one of the family! Friendly, fun and totally professional Bridie turns heads and tails when she's had her wayward coat groomed and smells gorgeous. Always recommend to any fellow dog owners we meet on our travels!

  • Claire Newbold

    Clara and all all members of her team are just lovely and fantastic at their job. My pooches Poppy and Angus always love coming, they are happy and always come out just gorgeous and I’m never disappointed. What an absolute find, I do and will always recommend these lovely guys x

  • Eileen Jackson

    I had tried everything in an attempt to cut my French Bulldogs nails. She absolutely loves to be washed and groomed but try to cut her nails and she would turn very aggressive and try to bite. It got so bad I thought there was no alternative other than to have her muzzled or even sedated by a vet before having them cut. I was thrilled that Clara was even going to attempt to cut Maisie’s nails, Clara was full of confidence, no muzzle, no sedative and 5 minutes after I took her in Maisie came out looking relaxed and happy with lovely short nails. I’m not sure how Clara did it but we will be going back very regularly. Highly recommend

  • Jacqueline Zuest

    Clara and Lindsay are fabulous. Logan always looks beautiful when I pick him u from a grooming session. Thank you so, so much. You guys are awesome !

  • Sara Cole

    I have just started taking Dandy to be groomed but already I know that I will be coming back again and again. Her initial session was quite traumatic for me as she was so matted having come from a rescue centre, that her fur was shorn to make her comfortable. This made a huge impact on her well being and when she went for her second session she did not need such a drastic change!

  • Karen Blackman

    Clara and lindsay always welcomes you with a big smile and always has time for a chat before we leave George our Shih tzu in their capable hands. We love that fact that he can mix with other dogs too. They know exactly how we like George cut. We are due to move to our new home further away soon but we have decided we will still continue to come to My Best Friends

  • Paula Kedward

    Standard of care, kindness and professionalism is second to none. Happy dog and owner.

  • Tatjana Race

    Clara did an amazing transformation on my cavachon girl! Thourough consultation, honest personality and brilliant service! Accommodated my cavachon girl the last minute! I'm very pleased with the grooming and service received!

  • Sara Cole

    Another visit for Dandy and a teeth clean as well! She looks and smells beautiful thanks to Lindsey. See you again in 6 weeks.....

  • Alan Cutler

    We absolutely love this place, pixie was nervous the first time we went and now she gets so excited. They are so confident at what they do and really make the dogs feel at home. 5* thank you so much

  • Anthony Smith

    Clara was recommended to me 3 yrs ago for my terrier Tess and I wouldn't think of taking Tess anywhere else. I wouldn't say Tess is happy to see them but always leaves looking clean and great, which considering the state she arrives in ( she comes to work with me all week ) is no mean feat. Both Clara and Lindsey are marvelous with her, thank you both.

  • Andrew Wilson

    As a surrogate pet owner, with part time caring rights for Huxley. We have nothing but praise for Clara and Lindsay. They have once again helped us out with a short notice appointment for a rather shaggy dog suffering from the result of 'lockdown locks'. It is pleasing to see that your new accommodation is completed. Huxley always looks great after his visit. Thank you for another excellent grooming.

  • Sam Bate

    Just had our first dog groom with Lindsey and Clara, what a lovely environment for my 3 shihtzu crosses. After being in lockdown they were hairy bears to say the least but the ladies did a fantastic job. I felt so at ease, as I hate leaving my fur babies but they were well looked after and the ladies were so knowledgeable and welcoming. Wicket, Daisy and Ted look fab, thankyou so much x

  • Sandie Banwell

    Both Clara and Lindsey are delightful and very welcoming and caring with the dogs. I took my two border terriers there recently for the first time and was very impressed. The dogs were groomed beautifully and when I picked them up they were so happy and relaxed. The previous place I went to the dogs were desperate to get away! I shall certainly return to Clara and Lindsey. Sandie Banwell

  • JANET Clavin

    Just bought our cocker spaniel fudge back from having been groomed for the first time at my best friend groomers and he looks very good and smells lovely will be taking him back again as very pleased with the grooming, very professional & lovely people .

  • Rachael Richardson

    This was our first visit with our cocker spaniel to Clara and Lindsey for grooming and we will definitely be coming back. We were really impressed with the groom, the care he received and the knowledge and expertise Clara and Lindsey showed. He was so so happy when we collected him and had obviously loved all the care and attention he had been shown!! Thank you so very much.

  • Jennie Loomis

    My Old English Sheepdog Holly was groomed by Clara, she did an absolutely amazing job on Holly. It had been difficult for other groomers to get an even cut on her all over but Clara did a great job and even better Holly was happy and not at all anxious when I returned to pick her up. Thank you!

  • Mark Singleton

    I can't thank Clara and Lindsay enough for the care they take of Tufty. He arrives looking like the wild and naughty boy that he is and leaves looking like the beautiful handsome boy that he also is....and doesn't he know it!! What's more, Tufty has various complicated health problems and they have not only heard of them they understand and know about what issues arise from his complaints. They truly do care about the dogs they look after outside and inside too!!
