Prices are charged at a starting price, the final price depends on - the size of the breed & the size of the dog within that breed, the condition of the coat ie matts, knots & how packed the coat is, the dogs temperament as this will dictate how much can be done & in what time scale. If a dog is not enjoying the experience, becomes agitated or aggressive then it may be necessary to stop & for the dog to be collected with a view to arranging another grooming session if possible. If your dog has matts please be aware it may not be possible to get these out. We only try to de-matt a dog for no more than 20 minutes due to the stress this puts on the dogs skin. If there are significant matts/knots then this could result in your dogs coat being shaved off making the length of the coat significantly shorter. This will cost extra due to the wear & tear it puts on equipment, groomers health & time taken to shave a coat off. If you can not get a comb through your dogs coat then please take into consideration it is no easier for a groomer. If you allow your dog to become matted/knotted it makes the grooming experience unpleasant for them rather than enjoyable.
All dogs are bathed in the latest model hydro bathing system. The powerful water jet that is sprayed out combines shampoo & water ensuring an enjoyable massage & bathing experience for your pet. The water is set to temperature & the water pressure can be adjusted for nervous or small pets. In addition there is a hinged false floor which is more comforting for smaller pets.
Please be aware we operate a cancellation policy. If we receive less than 24 hours notice to cancel or re-arrange your appointment we will charge a full groom or full swim fee. We have customers wanting appointments & less than 24 hours notice is to late to rebook the appointment out. We still have wages & bills to pay & as a small business we must seek the fee back from the customer. Staff work according to the amount of bookings they can not be expected to take a cut in wages due to late cancellations or no-shows.
We have a dedicated area of pens that are complete with fences & gates. These pens hold larger dogs that can not fit in our extra large cages. We also use these pens if customers wish to leave their dogs with us after their groom (extra charge of £3 per hour applicable upto 4pm.) We always allow upto 1 hour collection time at no extra charge.
