Welcome to Country Barn Dog Grooming! Owner Samantha Hobden offers a professional dog grooming service deep in the East Sussex countryside. Qualified from the South Coast Dog Grooming Academy, Samantha has a flexible approach to grooming. Whether you want a breed style pet cut or a style to suit your dog's lifestyle, Country Barn Dog Grooming can help.



The salon is purpose-built using the best equipment available. Natural shampoos and treatments are offered which give long term benefits to your dog's coat health. All appointments begin with a seven point health check so that Samantha can assess any unusual lumps, bumps, rashes, teeth issues, matts or bald spots. This allows making helpful recommendations ahead of your dog's groom together with Samantha's professional advice in what she feels would be best for your dog.

Samantha specialises in terriers, working dogs and their crossbreeds which are breeds that she is passionate about. Working dogs notoriously love the mud and living with half the undergrowth in their coats. By keeping these breeds trim and tidy keeps them comfortable, in top condition and able to work effectively for you.

What Our Customers Say

Tilly loved being pampered. Thank you Sam for doing such a great job and looking after her so well. We were quite fussy in how we wanted her to look and we were so pleased you listened and made her look even more beautiful than she is already! She’ll be back for more very soon. Thank you for your help x
