Silvia is great with my 2 year old Yorkie who doesn’t like being groomed, not ideal for a long haired dog! Sylvia managed to fit us in last minute on Friday to clip my dogs claws. We used a dog sling and my dog didn’t even realise he was having his claws clipped. Quick and stress free! Definitely recommend Sylvia if you are looking for a groomer! She genuinely loves what she does and all the dogs left in her care. Wouldn’t want to take my dog anywhere else.

My very timid long haired cat regularly visits Silvia for a lion cut. Silvia has such a caring nature, she is so calm and gentle with him and does everything she can to make his appointment as stress free as possible. Silvia is always accommodating and responsive to messages and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her grooming expertise. So glad I found Silvia!!

Silvia and her team are amazing. My dog was not a fan of grooming but Silvia works her magic and I now have a dog who can’t wait to see her for her groom. Poppy always leaves looking and smelling beautiful . Being a breed that needs regular grooming, I needed someone that both me and my dog can trust and feel at ease with. You can easily see how much Silvia loves her job and how much the animals love her! I would definitely recommend Barkingham Palace to anyone looking for a great groomer.

Silvia is so talented and knowledgeable with grooming dogs! She works so well with them and her customers. Would highly recommend Silvia and Barkingham Palace!


My Cockapoo has developed a terrible fear of having his nails cut when he is usually very calm and relaxed. Sylvia was amazing with him. I thought I would have to take him to the vet but she managed to get his nails cut despite his demonic behaviour. Sylvia is a brilliant groomer but this was above and beyond. I can’t believe she managed it! I wouldn’t take him anywhere else.

Silvia & the rest of the staff at Barkingham Palace are so wonderful with our dog Layla. So kind to the dogs, have a lovely garden for them to play in & we are always pleased with the services. Sylvia responds to requests in a timely manner & will go above & beyond to help. We called recently as our dog had a massive thorn in her pad we couldn’t get out & Sylvia had us bring her round immediately & got it out in seconds.

I have a very wriggly vizlsa who is too fidgety to have nails clipped and an older sensitve lab who needs grooming to get rid of dead coat but doesn't enjoy it. The ladies at coco handled them both superbly today. I only left them for an hour and returned to two happy sleeping dogs freshly bathed and with nice short nails. Excellent work coco salon, we will be new regulars.

  • positive review  The girls at Barkingham Palace Pet Grooming are so talented. We have had our Cockapoo cut at several places but, since going to Sylvia, countless people have commented on how good his cut is. Rufus can be a little nervous but they are so kind and gentle with him that I always feel happy leaving him. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
