ONE EIGHT Dog Grooming


Bedford, Bedfordshire

About me

I would love to say that I started my grooming journey straight out of school but my career took me on a different path and I spent almost 16 years on a successful career in the motor industry, finally working as a Customer relations and Quality manager before succumbing to my passion for dog grooming.

In 2018 i completed my City & Guilds Level 3 dog grooming qualification (dist) and held a position teaching dog grooming to a number of fabulous students whilst focusing on my own, ever growing little business. I then went on to complete the OCN Level 3 dog grooming Full Diploma and a qualification in pet First Aid & CPR.

ONE EIGHT Dog Grooming is the realisation of a lifelong passion for dogs and the art of professional dog grooming. My vision has always been to provide a service as bespoke and unique as each individual dog in a beautiful relaxed environment. With this in mind, my home based salon functions on a strict one to one basis which allows me to operate with no crates, less noise, less stress and 100% focus on the dogs.

Please feel free to browse through my website, read reviews & pop me a message if you have any questions.

    Lisa grooms both of my gorgeous rescue staffie's. She is so friendly & makes the pups feel at ease, especially my girl who is not a lover of water. Lisa takes her time & let's my girl know that she is safe. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Friendly & professional & I know my dogs are in safe hands. Highly recommend. Thank you Lisa

    Lisa grooms my little dog Starlet and she is always happy to go to have lots of fuss and be pampered. Starlet always comes home looking and smelling lovely. Lisa offers a very friendly and professional service and I know my girl is happy and safe there. I work at a Vets and recommend Lisa to our Clients and I get loads of great feedback from them when they have been to One Eight. Thank you Lisa

    I've known Lisa for many years now so it was fantastic to see her. I knew my foster dog was in the best hands during her pamper session. Lisa is friendly and offers a professional service. I would recommend her groomers to anyone looking to have their dog groomed. Thank you again Lisa x

    I was recommended One Eight as was my usual one had run into difficulties. Best thing ever. She never crates and your dog is the only one there so Willow is as happy as she can be. I 100% trust her guidance. Willows comes out looking and smelling amazing and lasts for days. I did cheat on her once and regretted and came straight back to her. She cuts and cleans to what you want and I love the way Willow comes out with her fluffy tail. Her care and support is evident and willows first corona cut was was amazing. Thank you

    Lisa has groomed Ridley for several years now,firstly being a canine partner for my wife and now for me,she has always done an excellent job of grooming and careing for him over the years

  • Lisa Boynett

    Lisa is always so kind and caring in her approach to my elderly dog. He is deaf and a bit short sighted but she ensures he feels safe and cared for. He goes in looking a scruffy boy and comes out looking like a million dollars. It is a shame he can’t see the results himself. I would highly recommend One Eight grooming. The salon is spotless and all recommended Covid restrictions have been strictly adhered to. Would not go anywhere else for dog grooming.

  • Sharon Davidson

    I take my border terrier to Lisa on a regular basis for hand stripping. He always looks amazing and is always happy after a visit to Lisa. Would highly recommend and would not want to send my precious boy to anyone else for his grooming needs. Lisa is always happy and welcoming. The dogs love her.

  • Zara Shelford

    I have taken my two long haired minis and border collie to Lisa for a good year now and wouldn’t go to anyone else. We had some horrific encounters with shop groomers etc so was going on a recommendation from a friend. We are very fussy clients but she was amazing from the first booking. I loved how she walked us through what she would do and the dogs too! We were welcome to stay or go and even offered a hot drink! The cleanliness and stylish look of her groom room is always amazing and the lengths she has gone to keep us , my dogs and herself safe in this pandemic is unparalleled. Such an easy going groomer with a keen eye and really knows her stuff! Every groom is outstanding and faultless. I have recommended to many friends with varying breeds and needs so hopefully more people to boast her excellence in the new year. It is nice to see someone who loves their job and gives 200%! I would highly recommend and unless she shuts up shop we will be life long customers ( even if moves haha!) . My girls love her ( possibly more than us!) as they always receive VIP treatment. Go Lisa and One Eight!!! X

    My Lhasa Apso had his first experience this week with One Eight, well we we’re speechless with the results. Lisa is amazing, friendly, caring, professional and her service is exceptional FIRST CLASS. You can see that she takes great pride in her salon. When I collected Ralph he looked like he could win Crufts... I would highly recommend Lisa, the dogs definitely get VIP treatment. Thank you Lisa see you soon

  • Karen Barton

    I would highly recommend Lisa for grooming. I take my little Cocker Spaniel called Archie and he always comes back looking and smelling amazing. I can always tell that he is happy too - her clients certainly get special treatment. Thank you and look forward to seeing you again soon.

  • Karen Morley

    Lisa was highly recommended to me when I was looking for a groomer for Murray my Cocker Spaniel puppy. He is 2 now and I am delighted to say I now highly recommend Lisa to all my dog owner friends too. Lisa is extremely knowledge and experienced about everything grooming related and that alongside her caring, calming and friendly personality ensures we return every time. Murray comes home looking and smelling like a top dog! Oh, and the treats we can purchase at the end are highly recommend too!. Thank you Lisa. See you soon. x
