What’s Included..

Here is what is included in the Full Groom. If there is something not mentioned here of if you need something particular please feel free to let us know at booking. 

    With warm water from a power shower, we first rinse the dog down. Then using one of our premium shampoos, we massage this into the dogs coat, making sure to get down to the roots of the hair and the skin. During this section we also check for any parasites, injuries, conditions.

Blow Dry
    There are no cabin / cage dryers used here. Our main tool is our High Velocity dryers, (HV Dryers). Like a super powered hair dryer we are in control of them at all times and with wind speeds upwards of 90mph they ‘blast’ the water from the body leaving your dog bone dry. If your dog is not so happy with high power we can turn them right down and remove the nozzle to create just a warm air breeze and extending the drying time. Along with these we do use towels. 


Fluff Dryer (situational)
    While all dogs need to be dried, dogs with a more fluffy coat make use of our fluff dryers. Blowing a nice steady stream of warm air from a stand allowing us to brush ‘fluff’ the coat to get the most full effect.

Brush Out
    Brushing out a dog’s coat helps the coat into its natural position so that when we are cutting and shaping the dogs coat we are starting from solid point. It also helps to remove knots and matts* and coupled with the fluff dryer we can fluff the coat out to leave a great silhouette shape to the dog.


 *   De-Matting…

…can only be done for 15mins. Any longer than that is classed as animal cruelty. If it takes longer than that to remove all the matts then we would have to resort to clipping them out. This is done behind the matt close to the skin so will leave a patch of very short hair. In these cases we recommend taking the whole dog short so the coat can all grow together at the same length and there is no ‘craters’.  This will be discussed with you on a case by case basis, as some may be able to be styled out depending on their location.

Please see our De-Matting Policy Here

Cut and Style
We will always try to accomplish the style of cut you want* for your dog, be it an all off/shave down, or an Asian fusion.. There is no judgement here, if you want to ask for something wild or something simple. Using our array of high quality tools and equipment we should be able to accommodate any dog any style.


 * The wellbeing of the dog comes first. The style you request may not be able to be done if other factors are stopping us. Such factors may include but not limited to things like…

  • Matted Hair
  • Certain cowlicks (the patterns the hair naturally curls to) 
  • The condition of the coat (maybe its not thick enough)
  • Medical conditions of the dog, that deem it unfair to perform that style
  • Dogs temperament, if they are thrashing about or biting, a fancy style might be too much or dangerous and a clip down might be a suggestion

Dogs that don’t need cutting…


    The full groom is the same but there will be no cut and style for some breeds. (eg: Labradors, Staffys, Pugs etc)..


Instead these breeds are given a Deshed brushing. (not to be mistaken for stripping)


Deshedding, is were we brush them with various tools to get the loose dead hair out of their coat. Dogs that shed bad, we may not be able to stop it completely but we will rake as much out as we can*. More frequent sessions maybe needed to help the shedding.


* Over brushing can cause something called ‘Slicker Burn’, were the skin is rubbed red raw and can even start bleeding. This is why we maybe unable to get all the hair out in one session.

Nails Clipped
Included in all our grooms we check your dogs nails and clip them as short as we can to promote healthy nails. 

For more information on nail clipping please check our dedicated

Nail Clipping page here

Ears Cleaned
Included in all our grooms we check your dogs ears and then clean them with an alcohol based ear cleaner. This will help loosen the wax and remove dirt and grime while evaporating so not to keep the ear moist which can promote bacteria and infection!


If your dogs ears are particularly bad they may need a few ear cleaning sessions maybe between grooms. We will discuss this with you if this is the case. 


If your dogs already have an ear issue, maybe an infection please do let us know. We may still clean the ears, but if you have drops to put in you may want to wait until after their groom to put them in. 


In the worse cases, we sometimes pour the cleaning solution into the ear canal and then massage it to help loosen the wax. After their groom the wax may still be making its way out and you may see it run from their ears, just wipe it away with a tissue.

Spritz of Dog Pawfume / Cologne

     At the end of the groom we will spray a delicious scented dog Pawfume or Cologne*. The scent we pick is at random, if you have a preference please let us know at drop off, or we can showcase them to you so you can pick. They are all gorgeous smelling and we are sure you will be happy with any.

The scent can last upto 5 days, but obviously there are outside factors that may alter this… if your dog leaves the salon and immediately rolls in fox poop, no amount of pawfume will get past that.. maybe you walk them in the rain and it is washed off? Maybe they just roll around on the floor and rub it off.. for all these reasons and more we don’t guarantee how long the scent will last.

*Unless your dog has some kind of medical condition, sore/sensitive skin or if you request us not to (maybe you have some breathing difficulties?).


     Check our our Shop if you would be interested in purchasing some to keep your dog smelling FRESH between grooms!

How Long Does it Take?

     We book out 1.5 – 2 hours per dog. Please be on time for your appointments as we are on a tight schedule. 


Please understand that each dog is different and one dog might take 45 mins, and another might take 3 hours. This might be your dog, it might be the dog before your dog. This is why our times for collection are never definite, but we will call/text when your dog is ready to be picked up. 


Things that might alter the length of a groom may include the condition of the dog when brought in, the dogs behaviour. Other dogs may take longer than expected or may need the assistance of other groomers which can slow things down. 


We hope you can understand the unpredictability that comes along with anything to do with animals.

Prices and Plans

     Prices are all estimates! We price per job not per breed. No dog is the same, no two Springers are the same, no two pugs are the same, so why would we charge the same? 


Please check our Prices Page Here for more information and estimates.


(Some) Factors that determine our prices..

  • Size of Dog
  • Type of hair (curly wool like, long, thinning, dense double coated etc)
  • Condition of the dog when it comes in
  • What type of cut / style you are after
  • Is the dogs hair full of twigs, sticky buds, poop, paint
  • Matting
  • Fidget dancer type dog
  • Biting angry type dog
  • Peeing or pooping all over the salon type dog
  • Wrecking equipment (chewing restraints or scratching at the walls etc) 


We don’t really do any deals or price plans for grooming, however if you book out for the year and always show up for your grooms, it will be taken in to consideration in April when we usually have a price increase to co inside with the cost of living.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I Stay with my dog?
    • No. Dogs will always want to go see their owner, even if they are enjoying the groom. They just love you so much! This can make it a lot harder to groom. If you have a particularly nervy/aggressive dog we will always try without you their first (they are often better than you think). But if the groom is too difficult or dangerous it maybe something we can discuss with you about having you stay for next time.
  • Do you accept… Insert breed?
    • Yes, we will at least give them a go. We can’t think why we wouldn’t be able to groom a dog, unless its temperament was unsafe for us or them. Even your big and hairy dogs we should be able to handle, and we charge for how difficult the groom.
  • Do you accept Nervous or Aggressive Dogs?
    • Yes, we are the leading expert in handling difficult dogs within the area. With many years of experience and a number of well trained staff to assist, if we cant handle your dog you will struggle find someone who can. We also have a gated off back room (our calm room), for dogs that don’t want to be around other dogs. Taking extra measures and precautions maybe reflected in the cost of the groom.
  • Do you take Card Payments?
    • Yes
  • Are you mobile?
If you find any errors within any of these, please do let us know.
