we can take care of your dog from head to paw

Just like us, our canine companions need physical maintenance to keep them looking good and clean and healthy.

Our experience allows us to cater to all breeds and our groomers are trained to make your dog look the best that it possibly can for their coat and genetics. Our team will take the time to talk to you to ensure you’re getting exactly what you want, whether that’s the practical breed standard haircut or something more creative. We don’t stop there, our skilled staff will also examine your dog’s skin health and provide expert advice on skin issues, including cysts, flea bites and allergies, as well as shampoo and diet recommendations.

We do Reserve the right not to de-matt if we believe unnecessary pain will be caused to your dog. Sometimes a short clip is the best option but grooms will be charged at the Deluxe Groom price or slightly more if two staff are required.
