Wash & Dry

Does your dog have that unpleasant doggy smell... regular bathing not only makes your dog cleaner, more hygienic and feeling more comfortable...


Puppy Introduction

It is important to introduce your puppy to grooming at an early age. As soon as you bring your puppy home the grooming process can help form a bond... 

Nose to Tail Groom

Before each groom there will be a short consultation where I will get to know you and your dog and briefly assess their behaviour...

How a lack of grooming effects your dog

  • Dogs cool off by panting and by air circulating around and through their pads.  Long hair impairs that ability, so a quick trim or cut can improve this circulation and allow your dog to cool easier.


  • Crust in the corner of your dogs eyes can cause sores leading to discomfort.  These sores can only be seen after removing the thick crust when grooming or after washing.


  • Long and overgrown nails force your dog to walk on the sides of their pads.  In the long term, this can lead to arthritis in the legs and hips and also contributes to splayed toes potentially causing infection and pain.


  • Matted hair causes PAIN for your dog by pulling on the skin causing sores and creating room for moisture which causes infection and fungus.


  • Regular cleaning and grooming of your dog can help identify skin and health issues.  When identified in the early stages these issues can prevent expensive trips to the vets.


  • Your dogs ears have hair deep within the inner ear canals that need to be trimmed and cleaned every 4-6 weeks otherwise there is a risk of inflammation  and infection.


  • Clearing your dogs santitary area of hair is good hygiene. This guarantees that your dogs excretions and stools will not stick and be carried indoors.


  • Hair in between your dogs pads and toe nails causes pain, this results in your dog licking their feet creating knots in between their toes and potential infection occuring.


  • Some breeds have under-coats that build from shedding within.  The outer coat and inner coat become thickly padded and thick mats are extremely difficult to remove.


  • Bathing your dog without first brushing creates small, tight knots referred to as pin knots.  These type of knots make your dogs grooming experience a painful and unpleasant one.
