"I took my 10yr old Shih tzu and 8mo old Lab mix to Canine Couture for the first time a few days ago. I am very pleased with the grooming and overall treatment both of my puppies received by the entire staff. Everyone was very professional and friendly and both of my babies came home looking great and beautiful!! Based on this experience I highly recommend this groomer.."

“The staff and owner do a fabulous job with my almost 15 year old cockapoo. They give her lots of attention and try to get her done quickly since she is older. Have good covid protocols in place.”

“I would personally like to thank you all for the great job that you did on my dogs. The communication, texts, and phone calls put me at ease. Also, let me know that you truly care about your customers and pets. You made it easy to trust that you would look after my little boys. Thank you again so much. Ill make sure to tell my family and friends about you. Happy New Year ladies.”

“We absolutely love and highly recommend the Canine Couture team! We started bringing our Westie here a few years ago for periodic grooming, and Loren ended up making some really important suggestions about his overall health and skin care, which we honestly had not spent enough time thinking about. She recommended a different dog food, which immediately had a positive effect, and then she recommended a medicated shampoo and asked if we would consider bi-weekly baths to help get his skin in order. She offered us a great price, so we started doing it and it has had a huge positive impact on our dog. We recently took our yellow lab to them as well to help manage her crazy shedding, and they cleaned her up beautifully. Loren and team treat out dogs like family. They are always so pleasant and helpful and love on the dogs. They always pick up the phone and are flexible with their schedules. I can’t say enough good things about them. You should be taking your dogs here too.”

“We LOVE Loren!! She is by far the best!! We wouldn't have our 3 babies go to anyone else but her. She always has time for questions and gives great pet care advice. Loren goes above and beyond with customer care. Wishing them nothing but success!”

“New to the area, and chose this groomer based on past reviews. They definitely did not disappoint! From the scheduling, to the convenient drop off & pick up, to the groom itself & affordable pricing..Canine Couture is excellent! I had some questions about local vet recommendations, and the owner was quick to help me out and point me in the right direction. My little old man looks handsome as ever with his new cut! Can’t wait to see what the staff at Canine Couture can do with my other 2 dogs as well. Keep up the great work girls :)”

“Loren is one of the best groomer in the state of Delaware. She is definitely "Top-Dog" in Sussex county. Otie loves his visits with her. He walks in and struts out!”
