I start with careful brush and comb out while I also check the skin condition. De-matting is done at this stage if necessary. Then your dog will receive a warm bath and I use only premium dog products, 100% pure and natural. There is a minimum of two shampoo sessions and I apply a conditioner if needed. Special attention is given to ears and eyes during the wash to ensure they are clean. A gentle towel and blow dry (I won't persevere if your dog dislikes the blow dryer) is followed by a nail clip. Then a full brush and your dog is ready to get his haircut to your specific instruction. By the end of this process your pooch will feel and look good!
This 2-3 hour service is a full body haircut. After a bath with high quality shampoo and conditioner, blow dry and brush out, hair cut, ears cleaned and nails trimmed your dog emerges super clean, super tidy and super happy!
I recommend scheduling full body haircut every 6 to 8 weeks.
This is 1-2 hour service. It is perfect to keep your dog looking good in between its usual grooms!
Choose it if your dog does not require a full body haircut but you want the hygiene area, face, pad and feet trimmed.
Introduce your puppy to the grooming process with a pleasant bath, gentle blow dry and slow brush out and slight trimming. This is a great way to ensure your puppy is set for a lifetime of stress free grooming!
As a general rule, puppies should be no more than 16 weeks old and had all of their shots before being groomed for the first time.
At grooming school I have learned that there are procedures that should not be performed during the grooming process, but rather left for a vet. Specifically because of the adverse effects these practices have on your dog. These are the procedures I do not perform in my practice:
Many breeds tend to become matted very easily. This is especially true if they get wet, and even more true if they are not brushed regularly. Oftentimes, the owner is not even aware that the hair is matted, because they are only seeing and brushing the top coat - but it is the undercoat that is full of tangles. When they finally come in for their appointment, the refrain is very familiar: "Mats? What mats? Just take a little off. I don't want him to be too short.". The groomer faces two choices at this point, both of which are not very ideal:
Please note – I will not go excessively short without your express permission. Most dogs' hair grows back pretty quickly. Now that it is short, it should be very easy to keep well-maintained, and will be much more comfortable for your dog going forward.
The de-matting process can be avoided with a good home grooming regime, please ask me how.
If your dog attends Complete Canine Care daycare you have the added opportunity for us to simply collect from there, groom, and return - how easy is that?
Price may vary based on dog breed, size and coat condition. The actual cost will be provided after consultation. I accept payments in cash and payment cards or you can pay through Complete Canine Care when picking up your dog.
