About LoveDog

I'm Maureen Grant, owner and director of LoveDog. Thanks so much for visiting our website and finding out more about my business and my incredible team.

I’m very proud of my business and my amazing team.

I’ve been grooming dogs for many years. My passion for providing beautiful grooms is secondary to the welfare of each individual dog that enters my salon. I treat each dog as I would treat my own.

Communication between ourselves and our customers is key to our success in supporting and providing the best possible experience for your dog. At LDG we tailor the groom to suit your dog, and as a team we instinctively help one another to best support your dog.

Sometimes an extra pair of hands to hug or an additional reassuring soothing voice makes all the difference to settle a nervous pup.

At LoveDog we groom all dogs, all ages, all breeds and all behaviours.

Understanding dogs behaviour and how they show anxiety is so important in confidently handling a dog effectively.

At LDG we strive to build up confidence where required and break down barriers and de-sensitise any worries your dog may have whilst being groomed.

Our Talented Team

I continue to learn and keep my skills updated with changes and progression in the dog grooming industry. The same goes for my talented team.

I am a member of PIF Pet industry Federation Groomers spotlight, the professional organisation for qualified groomers.

I am a qualified dog groomer, attaining a City and Guilds diploma in dog grooming.

I hold a Diploma in training management and I'm currently studying diploma in dog behaviour with the British college of K9 studies. The learning never stops!

For 7 years In a row LDG had been listed in the top 3 dog groomers in Renfrewshire by best rated.

We were also been awarded Best Dog Grooming Business in Renfrewshire at the Scottish business awards 2021, then went one better the following year by winning Best Dog Grooming Business in the whole of Scotland in 2022!

A tremendous achievement and one we are all very proud of.

All our team members are fully trained in dog first aid.
