Grooming prices include a full consultation, nail trim (if required), ear cleaning/plucking (if required), luxury shampoo, blow dry and full groom. The average groom will take between 1-2 hours and longer for larger dogs so please factor this into your schedule when booking an appointment.
Nail Clip & Buff
This service can only be carried out if your dog is compliant. The full fee will be charged regardless of how many nails are trimmed. Sometimes it may not be necessary or possible to clip all the nails.
Wash and Brush Up
This service is only available to customers who have their dog regularly groomed and has been kept matt free, otherwise an appointment for a full groom may be more appropriate.
Dogs should enjoy being groomed and chances of this are greater if regular grooming is started from an early age. Little and often is best, starting with a couple of minutes and building up as your dog becomes comfortable with being handled. If a dog can learn to have its feet and inside its mouth touched and inspected at an early age it can help to make life much simpler and less stressful later on during grooming and vets visits.
‘Puppy Grooming’ service is only available for dogs under 6 months old, that have been fully vaccinated.
Dogs with matted hair can suffer from pain and movement restriction (inner thighs can matt together), restricted blood flow to the extremities (ear leather), reduced ability to go to the toilet (dried faeces blocking anus), reduced ability to keep cool, unnoticed weight loss, parasite infections, and undetected lumps, bumps and scrapes which may become serious or infected.
De-matting can only be offered to customers whose dog is of a suitable age, condition and temperament depending on the severity of the matting. If matting is severe or likely to cause pain and/or suffering the procedure cannot be undertaken as it would be a contravention of the Animal Welfare Act 2006. Dogs that are heavily matted or become stressed by the process should be clipped off as a humane alternative.
If your dog is a heavy shedding breed then this treatment is just what you and your hoover have been looking for. This treatment helps reduce the amount your dog sheds whilst at the same time cleansing your dogs hair and skin. The natural oils that coat the hair are not removed so the hair that is left behind is soft, shiny, smooth with minimal shedding.
