Our Services

A Pleasurable Experience

A visit to the Groomer should be a pleasurable experience for both dog and owner.

Grooming is essential to the well being of a dog as it removes loose hair, dander and any debris from the coat.

Bathing removes dirt, grease and smells that have built up in the coat and massages the skin, stimulating the circulation and hair follicles. The result is a clean, fresh smelling dog. By using a good quality shampoo that replenishes the coat’s natural oils it is possible to bath dogs as often as you like.

In coated breeds, clipping the coat can create a practical, easy to maintain style for the busy owner which removes excess hair, reduces shredding and reduces maintenance time.

Wash &  Dry:

A quick brush out, followed by two warm washes,towel drying and a splash of cologne. An ideal freshen up before going home after boarding.

Micro Chipping

Hygiene, Health & Safety

We take the  risk of cross-infection very seriously and insist that all our four-legged clients are up-to-date with their vaccinations.

Hygiene is very important to us and the grooming table, bath and all equipment are cleaned, then sterilised or disinfected after each dog. Freshly laundered towels are used for each dog.

Dogs weighing more than 20 kg who are unable to into the bath unaided will need to be lifted by two people.

If a dog becomes distressed we reserve the right to stop working even if the procedure is unfinished.

Our Staff

Micro chipping

Microchipping provides veterinary practices, charities, and dog wardens with the ability to reunite lost and stray dogs quickly and safely with their owners. A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is implanted just below the skin of a pet, usually between the shoulder blades.

Compulsory microchipping for dogs is about to become law - all dog owners in England will need to have their dog microchipped by 6 April 2016. In Wales the date is March 2015. Once chipped your dog’s details need to be registered on one of the authorised commercial databases.  Microchipping of cats is recommended (but not compulsory).

Su is a fully trained microchip implanter with over 5 years experience.  All our chips come with registration on Petlog, the largest UK data, as standard.

If your pet is already chipped but you have lost the details we can scan for the chip so that you can update your information.

Regular scanning of your pet’s chip is recommended to check that everything is still working. We are happy to do this as part of a grooming appointment or during check-in for a stay in kennels.
