I am very excited to announce that I will be taking my maternity leave from 9th July 2021. Please make sure if your pup needs a groom before then that you book in ASAP so I don’t miss anyone!

I will be leaving you in the very capable hands of Kim Goodier owner of the ‘Groom Pad’ based in Pinhoe (01392 979173) and Laura Watts, owner of ‘Out for Poodle’ based in Wellington (07468536990). We all trained at the same academy, carry the same ethos and patience with our working practice. 

I will be sure to update you with an action plan when I am ready to return.

For now, I would like you thank you all for your continued support with my business!

Your dog is my sole focus for the time it is in my care, I do not receive multiple dogs in at any one time, which in turn offers safety, security and a stress-free experience. It also ensures time for a toilet break and above all my undivided attention.
I trained at the prestigious Shaw Dog Grooming Academy who were awarded the Grooming Gold Standard by SAI Global Independent Auditors in 2016. I am fully insured, canine first aid trained and I hold a City and Guilds level 2 qualification in Dog Grooming. I have also gained an additional City and Guilds qualification in order to be able to provide dog walking.
I only use the best natural products on your beloved companion as I strongly believe that they help maintain the health, well-being and appearance of your dog, along with positive environmental factors.

Handstripping is the removal of undercoat of a wire or broken coated dog.  Many Terriers and Spaniels may be handstripped such as the Border Terrier, West Highland White Terriers, Jack Russel Terriers, Schnauzers etc. Hand stripping maintains the wire coat of these breeds to keep the show like coat texture and colour.  Clipping these breeds is also fine but will result in a soft downy coat and loss of colour.

Puppy grooms are an essential part of your puppies social development. They include a bath, light eye, bottom and feet trim, nail clip and ear clean. We also throw in lots of cuddles and playtime!

It is important to have your dog’s nails clipped regularly and sometimes between grooms- if left unchecked they could curl into the pad of the foot causing extreme pain for your pup!

Teeth cleaning

with Cleany Teeth™!

Did you know by three years old 80% of dogs will have some level of dental disease? The toxic bacteria caused by plaque and tartar moves through the whole body as it enters the bloodstream, with time this bacteria can lead to heart, kidney, and/or liver damage reducing the life expectancy of our beloved pets. Cleany Teeth revolutionises dog oral hygiene by combining ultrasound air-oscillations with ultrasound nano-bubble toothpaste to fight dental disease.

We will assess your dog’s teeth and how many sessions we recommend as well as introducing them to teeth cleaning

These follow up appointments are essential to ensure that your dog’s breath stays fresh and they keep their pearly whites looking fresh!

Dog Walking

We operate a dog walking service within the local area on a one to one basis (this includes multiple from the same family). 

We will collect your dog from you and deliver them safely home. Walks are available to book for 30 mins or a full hour and can be on or off the lead walking in a secure, public green space.

We encourage a meet and greet prior to any booking arrangements, to discuss requirements and ensure positive association.
