Our Services

Prices will depend on your dogs breed, individual requirements, coat condition & behaviour, the prices shown are intended as a guide based on regularly groomed dogs.

Unkept coats resulting in matting & poor condition may incur additional cost.

 

Please note we do not de-matt negleted matted coats, if we are unable to   de-matt the coat within 20 minutes we will advise you so you can either collect your dog & return with a new appointment having brushed the coat out or we can give the coat a full clip off which is the kindess option as we feel it is unfair to put your dog through anymore.

We want your dog to want to come back, not hate his visits!

 

Remember it is YOUR duty to brush your own dog.

Drop off & Collection 

Can we please ask that you arrive on time for your dogs allotted appointment time, just 10 minutes late will have an affect on the next appointment, in some cases late arrival will result in rebooking. Please can we refer you to our Cancellation Policy.

Likewise prompt collection of your dog once you have been advised they are ready would be greatly appreciated, the next dog due in may not always be as well socialised with other dogs as yours is!! In this circumstance we may have to crate your dog for its own safety until your arrival.

 

Client Consent Form

Every new customer will be required to complete our Client Consent Form, which is downloadable from our Policies page or you can complete it on your arrival. It may seem rather unnecessary but this is to enable us to keep records in-line with the Animal Welfare Act 2006. It also enables us to tailor your dogs grooming session to meet both of your needs and if a longer appointment is requried due to your dogs health or disability. On subsequent visits our Routine Appointment Record can be completed where you will have an opportunity to provide any changes in your dogs health or behaviour and to request any specific style requirements.

 

Payment

We currently can only take payment by cash, please ensure you have the available funds when you come to collect your dog.
