We also groom Cats! Brush outs, knot removal and lion clips are the most commonly requested grooms. As it is safer and less stressful for your cat we only groom them under sedation supervised by a vet and a vet nurse. Cats are known to wriggle and can run the risk of being nicked if not sedated. Cats clipped under sedation also get a complimentary nail trim if required and a good brush out.
Puppy Grooming Induction
Being handled by a stranger can be a bit daunting especially for young puppies. Our goal is to ensure that your pet’s grooming experience is stress free and enjoyable. We really encourage your pup to become accustomed to the grooming procedures and also to the associated noises such as clippers and blow-driers as early as possible.
Our puppy grooming involves:
- Nail trimming and feet handling
- Brushing and combing
- Scissors to the face, feet and tail
- Blow drying
- Resting in cages and playtime with our groomers
Hydrobath and Towel or Blow Dry
Ideal for pets with a short coat who need a freshen up. Your pet will receive a warm hydrobath, ear clean, towel dry and complimentary nail trim, finished off with a natural lavender and chamomile doggie cologne. However if you would like them to be completely dry, you can request a hydrobath and blow dry using a high powered blow dryer. After they are nice and dry, we do a quick brush and comb to keep those knots at bay. Before they go home, they receive a spritz with Aroma Care Cologne Coat Gloss to leave them smelling amazing.
Face, Feet and Tail (FFT)/ Tidy Up
This is best used between full grooms to keep your pet looking fresh and clean. We recommend this just before and during winter as no length is taken off the coat. Lucky dogs are treated to our bath and blow dry package, with an additional hygiene clip and bottom trim. We scissor around the eyes and feet to keep them nice and clean. They receive a thorough brushing to make sure they have no knots and then some doggie cologne to complete their groom.
This is the deluxe package. Bath, blow dry, full clip/breed specific clip (feel free to bring in a picture of what you would like) with a hand scissored finish. This also includes our complimentary ear clean and nail trim. We bath and blow dry the dogs, brushing out the coat so it is knot-free. Then we clip off the hair to the length you have requested and to finish scissor the head, feet and legs to leave them looking perfect. The Full Groom is then finished with a stylish bow and cologne.
Strip Out (De-Shed)
This is a very specific type of groom reserved for double coated breeds, such as Malamutes, Huskies, Border Collies, Retrievers, Pomeranians, or for any dog who is profusely malting! As this is quite a time consuming process we appreciate your patience with this type of appointment.
We start with a high powered blow dry and brush out, a lot of the excess dead hair is blown or brushed out and the dirt in the coat loosened. We then bath in a high pressure warm hydro-bath to remove all the dirt and loosen up the rest of the shedding coat. After their bath, they are sprayed with Paw Rose Aroma Grooming Mist which leaves their coat lovely and soft and this is also an excellent de-tangler. They are then blow dried again to remove any moisture in their coat followed by a thorough brush out with a special strip brush designed to remove the undercoat without cutting the hair. After this is completed, there is the option for them to have an additional tidy up of their feet, groin and bottom (We will discuss this with you at your appointment). As this is such a complex treatment with a variety of factors, it is priced according to breed, coat type and time spent, so please feel free to ask our groomers for approximate pricing.
