We are qualified and members of the British Dog Grooming Association, you needn’t have any fear, your furry friends are safe with us.
The sooner the better, as long as they’ve had their injections. We offer a puppy package to puppies under 6 months to help socialise them into the grooming process so that they are comfortable and happy being groomed as adults.
During the session we slowly introduce the pup to the noises and sensations of grooming at comfortable pace. We also trim the hair by their eyes to stop the hair growing into them and around the bottom area to keep it clean as well as looking at their feet and nails. We can also advise you of a grooming routine and the correct equipment to use at home – perfect for keeping your pet happy & healthy between grooms.
“Maria has groomed Peggy, our cocker spaniel, since she was a puppy. Maria recommended that we introduce Peggy to the sights, sounds, and smells of the salon from a young age. Peggy is now always happy to see Maria, and she looks immaculate and smells gorgeous when we come to collect her”
