So why is it important to have your beloved pets groomed? With a sense of smell one million times better than our own, our passionate 4 legged friend’s super sensory olfactory ability is why many love to be bathed and pampered.
Even those that don’t, like two of ours, still run around afterwards, spinning in circles, like children at Christmas .
We are meticulous in all aspects of properly preparing your pet for the grooming process. We use Only the highest quality Dog Dryer on the market – the blue Double DK850 stand dryer pictured earlier on this page. However, as dog lovers, we do not use this blast dryer on any of your pets unless they are comfortable with this powerful form of dryer. We have a selection of much smaller “gentile” and warm dryers with adjustable settings that will be tweaked to perfection so no stress is caused to your loved one.
Your dogs are intelligent and instinctive; a good combination to know when they are been treat with empathy and affection.Brushing and meticulously dematting before bathing – and similar maintenance between grooms – is important. It ensures a healthy coat, minimises the chances of cysts due to blocked pores, and promotes good circulation.
Heavy tangled hair is not only time consuming to correct, but can also lead to skin problems, with discomfort and soreness for your loved one(s).We ensure that their nails; ears, pads and other hygiene areas are correctly and professionally attended to.
We help and advise owners on keeping the skin and coat healthy between grooms. Your dog’s skin and coat need regular bathing and brushing.
Your pet will not only feel clean, loved and content, this kind of maintenance trains you to notice anything out the ordinary at the earliest stage. Prevention is better than cure.
As bathing is the foundation of good grooming, we ensure this is done to the highest standard in our top of the range stainless steel doggy bath. Professionally welded and constructed with non-slip fittings both inside and on the aluminium steps for easy access.
Lovingly and thoroughly cleaned and sterilised after each lovely pooch has enjoyed a full massage of suds and conditioner, matching the right products to the skin and coat conditions as the preamble to a top quality grooming procedure.
With a suspended floor for the smaller dogs, and a thermostatic bar mixing shower- we customise this crucial part of the grooming process to your pets own requirements.
Both active outdoor dogs, and those that are a pampered Prince or Princess, equally enjoy the attention we give to bathing and health checks in our pre-grooming procedures.
Long nails present a potential health problem, in extreme cases they can cause the entire tendon and bone structure of the foot and pastern to break over time.
Allowing the fur to grow between the foot pads means more dirt than necessary is trekked into the house. In cold weather ice balls cling to the excess hair between the foot pads. As you could imagine, a great discomfort.
Hair in the ear canal stops good air circulation. If your dog has heavy long ears, attention to this area is very important.
A thorough evaluation and preparation process is carried out before we even start to groom. It is no less than these lovely creatures deserve.
