Good grooming is more than just skill with grooming equipment, it is also about a knowledge of dog and cat behaviour. We are lucky to have been trained by our predecessors who had been in the business for 40 years each. Their experience in grooming and knowledge of cat and dog behaviour was second to none and through extensive one to one training we are lucky to have been in receipt of this knowledge and to be able to put this into practice.
We groom for hygiene and practical purposes, it is important that you are able to maintain and enjoy your pet. It is also important that your pet is comfortable. Be assured that we will do our best to meet our ethos of care, hygiene and practicability and as with all of our services the welfare of your pet will always be our primary consideration.
The grooming prices below are indicative however the condition of your pet will reflect the final cost and this can and will be discussed prior to grooming. It is important to us to cause your pet as little discomfort as possible and so if it is unethical to de-matt then we would hope that you trust us to make the appropriate decision during the grooming process.
The following prices are a guideline in terms of work and size of the dog.
Yorkshire Terrier/Maltese £33
West Highland/Cairn Terrier £35
Skye Terrier £38
Bichon Frise £36
Lhaso Apso/Shih Tzu £36

We also offer a puppy initial grooming service at 50% the price of an adult dog of the same breed. After the first groom the cost reverts to the above. Obviously we would always recommend that you allow your pup to get used to the grooming process, this is entirely at your own discretion and we will offer advice if you would want us to.
We also offer a grooming service for cats with the cost ranging from £35 (Shorthair) to £50 (Long Haired) depending on the work to be done.
Cat grooming can be a dangerous process if there are matts, the condition of the cat will be reflected in the grooming cost as more time may have to be taken to ensure the safety of the cat. It also usually takes 2 people to hold your cat in a way to ensure safety.
