Special Needs (Behavioural or Medical):
I am willing to work with dogs that have a difficult time at the groomers.
I find that the way I groom from start to finish, is a positive way to groom these types of dogs. If you let me know that your dog will bite or has other nervous issues, I will take every step I can to help your pet.
Full Cut & Groom
A bath with relevant colour enhancing shampoo, conditioner
Towel and force-air dryer with low heat element
Eye and outer ear cleaning
Specific haircut based upon your dog’s breed standard or your individual style choice
Additional services / Fees
Preparation for a show
Anal Glands expression
Flea and Tick treatment
(I try to detect fleas and ticks prior to beginning the bathing/grooming process. If the fleas or ticks are not detected until after the bath, then re-bathing will be necessary, and an associated charge will be added)
Responsible & Reliable
Bookings are based on breed and type of service. On your first visit, you can expect it to take anywhere between 1½ to 3 hours, depending on breed and coat condition. Working one on one with your dog the first visit is very important as I like to get to know your dog and build a relationship, so they are perfectly at ease. Notes will be taken about coat, haircut style and methods used, receptivity and demeanour, so that for future visits I know your dog’s likes and dislikes.
If you have time constraints, please let me know ahead of time. I am usually scheduled about 4 weeks ahead of time for appointments, and at Christmas I am typically scheduled approx 6 weeks in advance.
Same day appointments are rare, however I will try to accommodate you and will keep a waiting list during busy times.
Like all professional groomers, prices are based on Breed, Size, Length and condition of coat.
The general price list is as shown, however the price may vary depending on the condition of the coat, special treatments that may be needed and extra time taken for those that really don’t wish to be groomed!
Severely Matted Dogs:
If it is going to be painful for the pet, de-matting or stripping will not be undertaken as your dog’s welfare is our primary concern. I may recommend clipping the coat back but will avoid shaving as this may damage the re-growth of the coat that can lead to alopecia. In these extreme circumstances a disclaimer may need to be signed.
