I work one to one with your dog to allow them to feel comfortable and relaxed, and to reduce stress, which is ideal if your dog is nervous or anxious. All services are by appointment only and all grooms are carried out at a pace your dog is comfortable with. I pride myself on a very hygienic, professional practice in my fully equipped salon. I can cater for all dogs, any breed & size.
This service will include a warm bath/shower using a shampoo best suited to your dogs skin and coat type, followed by a conditioning treatment. A blow dry followed by a complete brush out or de-shed of the coat to leave it tangle free, glossy, and smelling beautiful. It will also include a nail trim and ear cleaning.

Please note – All services are by appointment only. If there is a service you require that is not listed, please get in contact and I will be happy to discuss it.
Please Note: I do not De-Matt under any circumstances. Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, professional groomers will not put any pet through pain or discomfort to achieve a hairstyle. If excessively matted, your dog will be shaved for their own comfort. There is an additional charge of between £10-£20 for this, as removing the matted coat is time costly and will cause blades to blunt more quickly.

First Class professional and friendly service. So pleased that I booked my dog in for his first visit but it certainly won’t be the last. Don’t hesitate, book your dog in for their pamper now.
I’m over the moon with how my Albi looked when I picked him up. This young lady is very professional and my boy will be going nowhere else in the future Thank you so much
Fantastic experience. Charlie looks and smells amazing. Sam really listened to how I wanted him to be clipped and I am chuffed with the results. Collected one happy pooch who has been well looked after and thoroughly spoilt x see you again soon!
