We prefer not to quote over the phone as dog’s and their individual circumstances will vary. In order to provide our customers the best price and service, an in house visit is always going to be more precise on costing.
On arrangement you can drop your pet off before work and make a specific time for pick-up.
For after hours and picking up your pet must be by specific arrangement also. We do understand the hectic schedules most people face today and the occurrence of unexpected happenings so we are here to help our customers to the best of our ability and simply request the same courtesy.
Preparation-Careful Brush and Comb out, check your pet for any skin abrasions, bumps or any unusual skin conditions prior to beginning to ensure your pet will be comfortable.
Bath-Request Shampoo-Rinsing-Flea Rinse (Maybe more than once dependant on the circumstances).
Dry and Brush-
Trim- Face, Feet,
Shaving Off- Because of malting it is not recommended as the pet is almost always left most uncomfortable, rashing and bruising of the skin can occur We mostly use a de-matting process which includes as part of our dog grooming philosophy, “taking our time” so there is the least amount of stress put on your pet.
Usually a Brush and Bath, Trim Face, Feet and under the Tail and any other requested trimmings by you the owner. Each dog sometimes presents different circumstances with their groom so please feel free to ask so you understand exactly what we can and cannot do.
Vet Lines (What we don’t do and why)
Please note the importance of the following information below.
While I was a Vet Nurse for many years there are particular procedures that I personally choose not to perform in my Dog Grooming practice. Specifically because of the adverse effects these practices have on your dog. These processes in our opinion (for the safety of your dog) must be performed by qualified veterinarians.
Your dogs comfort MUST always come first!
- No plucking ears
- No expressing anal glands
- No scaling of teeth
- No medicating of pets prior to coming in for grooming or at any stage.
- We also do not colour or dye pets.
Our dog grooming philosophy is the dog must be comfortable, relaxed and happy when dog grooming takes place. It is our primary focus. Most times this can easily be achieved through patience, having a natural love for dogs, talking to the dogs and of course lots and lots of cuddles!
