Dog Grooming


Appointments can be made by phone or email for Monday to Saturday. We are closed on Sunday.


If your dog gets very matted you should bring him in weekly or fortnightly to be de-matted along with a wash, brush and dry, especially in the warmer months. If your dog is one of the breeds with an undercoat such as a German Shepherd, Collie or other herding dog, Terriers, Retrievers and other sporting dogs their double coats benefit from a regular groom and you will benefit too as they will shed less hair!


We always use high quality shampoos and conditioners and specify to your dog's needs, depending on fur and skin type.

Wash & Go

If you and your dog go down to the woods (or the sea) bring them in for a quick 'Wash & Go' on your ways home... no more muddy paws in the house!


Styling for your dog - we will discuss your dog's needs on the day.


Nail trimming is included in a full groom but we can just do nails and paw fur trimming.

Flea treatment

If when grooming your dog we find fleas we would use a treatment wash and suggest a product for use at home.

Puppy Special

For your under six month puppy we offer an introductory wash/dry/nail groom so that s/he can get used to us.


Payment can be by Debit/Credit card as well as cash.
