Grooming and your Dog

Regular grooming not only keeps your dog clean, comfortable, looking good and smelling fresh, it’s important for its health as well. When we groom a dog, we check the skin, coat, eyes, ears and  teeth and will let you know if  we spot any issues that require  attention.

No dogs are caged during the grooming process (we don't like that). We do not use cabinet driers.

 

How Long Will it Take?

Our appointments are generally around two hours, depending on your dog’s breed, the groom it is being given, and on the condition of its coat. We are happy for owners to stay and watch  if they would like to, our open plan salon has a  waiting area where you are welcome to wait for your friend.

Elderly or Nervous Dogs

We are able to work with dogs of all temperaments. With our calm, caring attitude most dogs are able to enjoy grooming. However, we will not force a dog to undergo grooming if it has become agitated, stressed or if it seems unwell.

Caring for your Dog's Coat

Brushing is good for all dogs, it helps spread the natural oils over the coat, but longer haired dogs need to be brushed every day or so to keep their coats knot free. Dogs such as poodles, and poodle crosses, with very curly coats, need to be brushed even more frequently.

De-matting (why we don’t do it)

Matted coats can get be very uncomfortable, even painful, for a dog and and can get so tight, that the blood supply can be cut off – this can cause bruising, sores or other problems.

De-matting (pulling out the mats) can be a very painful process, If your dog has a couple of knots, we can remove these, but we will not do this on a dog that is matted as this would cause it a great deal of pain. Where the matting isn't too heavy, we can scissor out the mats and blend in the area around to achieve a better look. With heavily matted dogs however, we need to shave the mats out, there really is no pain-free alternative.

First puppy groom (around 4 months) is usually a face feet and bottom tidy - a bath can be included if necessary. Puppies are groomed by hand at first, they are encouraged and praised for good behaviour; introduction to equipment is done gradually over 2 to 3 sessions. Treats are given after the groom as a reward.
