​​​​​​​Booking in:

When booking in we discuss your requirements, style you would like for your dog and we can advice you on this if you wish for some guidance or information. We also have spa packages you can choose from if you wish, your dog will be the best looking and smelling dog in the village! (Ask when booking in for more details)

Depending on the breed, requirements and temperament a groom can take anywhere from 1- 4 hours. We will either contact you when they are finished or we will arrange a pick up time for them to be collected.

If you are going to be late collecting, we do charge a boarding fee. Please see our Price Guide  page for more information.

On arrival:

Please ensure you arrive promptly for your appointment. If you are more than 15 minute past your allotted time we may not have time to groom your dog. 

If it is your first time visiting us, we ask a few basic question about your pet so we can ensure their safety and comfort. We will log the information so not to repeat this on every visit, unless anything changes. 

A few of the questions we will ask:

  • The name of the vet practice your dog attends.
  • If your dogs vaccination are up to date (we do not need any documentation to prove this)
  • When your dog last had their flea and worming treatments.
  • If your dog has any medical conditions, including long term illnesses, minor health problems, any sensitivities or allergies, if they have any lumps or bumps we need to be aware off, any infections, previous injuries etc. 
  • The best contact number to reach you on that day. (please ensure you have your phone to hand as in the unlikely event of an emergency we may need to contact you)


Additional information:

If your dog has fleas please inform us before your appointment as we may not be able to carry out the groom due to the risk of passing them on to other dogs. However we may be able to arranage another appointment.

If your dog is female and is either in season or pregnant we will not be able to groom your dog due to the risks and discomfort it will bring you pet at this sensitive time.
