The Grooming     Studio

In our Studio, which is located within a two acre paddock, we have a walk in bath with step allowing larger dogs easy access into the bath, it also has an insertable shelf for our little buddies too.

Our Hydraulic grooming table takes up to 110kg and lowers enough to allow those larger dogs to step on & off so they will never be expected to jump on or off a high table or bath risking a strain or injury.

All dogs are hand dried with a finishing dryer, absolutely no cabinet dryers!

Dogs & cats will be provided with fresh drinking water and are given regular comfort breaks.

The building is secure so dogs & cats do not have the opportunity to escape. 

We are equipped with cat specific grooming tools & equipment. 

If you & your special friend would like to visit us, feel free to contact us so we can make ourselves available for you
