Do you groom pregnant or unvaccinated dogs?
Whilst this is something I can do, there will need to be a consent form signed as this is at the owners own risk. I am able to groom pregnant bitches 10-14 days before their due date.
What should I do if my dog has sensitive skin?
Your dog's wellbeing is my top priority! All shampoo used is free from SLS, SLES, Alcohol and parabens. This is also puppy friendly and vegan, aswell as being cruelty free!
How long will my appointment take?
This can vary from dog to dog, due to dog size and coat condition.
Do you have a van?
I do NOT have a van. I set up in your home to groom your dog(s). Please make sure you are aware of this before booking.
How fast can I get a quote?
I typically respond within one working day, sometimes sooner. As I will be working I am unable to respond to messages immediately but I will contact you as soon as possible.
What should I do if I need to cancel or change my appointment?
That's absolutely fine! I am quite flexible, however I must advise that this is no less than 48 hours before your appointment so I can pass on your slot to another customer on the cancellation list. Should you make a cancellation after this time, it will result in having to take a deposit for any future bookings.
Ear Plucking and Anal Glands
I would recommend visiting your vet should you need either of these treatments due to the invasive nature and risks of infections.
Do you offer Nail Clipping?
This in included in all services. If you do only need a nail-clip the minimum charge is £20.
How old should my dog be to have a groom?
Your puppy is welcome from 12 weeks and it is recommended that you attend regularly to assist socialisation and handling. Dogs under 6 months of age can require clipping and also can attend for a bath/dry and become accustomed to the salon equipment and area. Owners are also given instructions on the daily care required with certain coat types which include daily brushing (cockapoos / labradoodles). Please ask about our puppy taster sessions.
I have a short haired dog, does he need grooming?
All dogs benefit from grooming. Removal of shedding /top coat helps improve the coat condition and stops hair loss in the home.
