Grooming Services

Whether you’ve had a bad grooming experience, got a new puppy, are new to the area or just fancy a change, we are here to listen to you. We ask that you allow time for a short consultation, especially on your first visit to us, so we can discuss your dog’s grooming needs. We can groom to breed standard or to a style of your choice, offer advice & explain fully the grooming style & procedure we decide upon so there are no unexpected shocks when you come to take your dog home. We work efficiently at all times but with patience, care and comfort breaks for your dog when needed.

What to expect from a Dog House groom

  • Pre-bath brush and basic health, skin and coat examination
  • Patient, professional handling at all times

  • Ear clean and trim
  • Body clip, handstrip or undercoat brush out depending on breed and preference

Hand Stripping Experts

We are fully trained experts in the art of hand stripping suitable coarse haired coats.

Done properly this is a gentle process resulting in the removal of the ‘blown’ coat promoting beautifully textured and fully coloured regrowth.

New Puppy Grooming Intro Sessions

Introducing your pup to grooming at an early age helps make the grooming experience an enjoyable and stress free experience throughout your dog’s life.

We encourage your puppy to explore the sounds and smells of our grooming environment. We’ll advise you on coat care, demonstrate home grooming care techniques and gently start some grooming procedures such as nails, feet, face and hygeine trimming.

45 minute 1-1 session with you and pup and lots of love and cuddles. £15.00

A Matted Coat

Many dog’s coats are prone to mats. Mats are tangled masses of interwoven hair that often form on areas of the dog that rub together such as behind the ears, legs, tail and collar. Moisture, dirt and debris catch up in mats and can result in irritation, infection and painful pulling on a dog’s skin.

We can remove some smaller mats and tangles and advise owners on regularity of grooming appointments and home brushing products and routines if required.

In cases of severe matting our primary concern is with the welfare of the dog and sometimes the only remedy we can advise is clipping off the matted ares, in effect, ‘starting again’.

Dog Hair Everywhere?

Even short haired breeds can benefit from regular grooming.  At The Dog House we can bath and thoroughly clean your dog’s coat, remove loose coat resulting in less moulting at home.  We can also check anal glands and trim nails which could save you vet’s fees.
