All grooms will include two warm washes in our hydrobath with hypoallergenic shampoo and conditioner if appropriate.
Coat will be then dryed in accordance with type to enable us to get the best finish for your dog.
Nail clipping and ear cleaning is included.
Ear plucking will be carried out upon request.
Your dogs coat will be thoroughly brushed and combed through prior to styling.
Lastly if your pet requires trimming, we can clip, scissor or hand strip to achieve the desired result.
We will not commit to hand stripping your dog without first seeing the coat. If the coat is suitable and you attend appointments at the recommended intervals we are more than happy to hand strip your terrier or gun dog. Please remember that hand stripping takes much longer than clipping but will help keep the correct texture and colour in the coat.
Neutering ( especially so in gun dogs) can affect your dogs coat making it thicker and unsuitable for hand stripping.
Short haired breeds
Short haired dogs also love to come in and be pampered. You too will benefit from less coat shedding in the house for a couple of weeks and a sweet smelling pet!
We welcome and recommend puppies come in for their first visit after their vaccination schedule is complete.
They benefit from at least one short visit to the groomers before the first full hair appointment.
This enables your puppy to get to know the person trimming his fur and become accustomed to the unusual sights and sounds in the parlour.
Sanity Before Vanity
Your pets welfare comes first.
If a dogs coat is presented to us in a severely matted state, we have no alternative but to shave it down short to get between the knots and the skin.
A dog will not tolerate an extensive de matting procedure, it causes unnecessary distress to your pet leaving the skin sore and bruised. Rather than your dog having a lifelong fear of being groomed it is much better to relieve your pet from the matted fur and start again.
Bring your dog back for grooming at the recommended intervals and you will have your pet looking just how you wanted in no time at all. Hair will grow back, your dogs temperament however is not so easy to regain.
We normally recommend your pet comes in for grooming every 6 -12 weeks depending on the breed.

Walk-In Nail Trimming
Professional grooming nail clippers are used to shorten those long and sharp nails, ensuring comfort for your pet to run around.
Some dogs are nervous with this, and in those cases we will use a doggy nail file instead of clipping.
The nail trimming service is £10.
