Please be honest with me with you make an appointment so i can book you in at the end of the day giving me chance to clean throughly and flea bomb the grooming room.
Flee treatments are £15 extra. Please treat your dog prior to the appointment with a product like frontline 48 hours prior to your appointment, allowing it to absorb into the skin before bathing. I will remove all eggs and dead fleas etc and shampoo in flea shampoo.
Please remember to treat your house too! Fleas love warm places so make sure bedding is washed, and treat even places like radiators, setees. Otherwise your dog will come back clean of all fleas and eggs, walk back into the house and they will all jump back on again!
After years of grooming i have learnt many techniques for grooming an aggressive dogs. And i have had great results in rehabiltating dogs, with patience from me and you, the owner.
If a dog is found to be aggressive then it may be restrained and muzzled, i also like to try changing its way of thinking with treats and praise. but if it is impossible to complete the work then you will be requested try and help as dogs tend to be calmer sometimes when the owner is there. But when your dog gets too stressed then you willl be asked to bring the dog bac. at another time, trying to finished on a nice note when it leaves, sometimes its better to come back a number of times to try to get the dog used to the proceedures. It may also be advised that you stay with your dog and assist. It may also help to bring the dog down prior to your appointment and let him get used to the surroundings and just have a fuss and treats maybe a brush.
I will not turn away an agressive dog. but please let me know about it before hand, while i still have a hand!
There is no extra charge for puppies but they do tend to take longer as everything is new, the greatest care is taken to try to let the dog enjoy the experience for both the dogs sake and for ours too. We also offer a puppy introduction, where you are welcome to bring your puppy to the salon to have a look around and let your pup get use to any of the tools, hair dryer, clippers etc, these we tend to use the opposite end and run it along the dogs back and legs to get it used to the feeling, while having a fuss, so there not so big and bad when it comes to it. you can also help by useing an electric toothbrush. these are 10-20 minute sessions and are free of charge.
your first appointment for a puppy is as soon as it has finished its injections, even if its just for a look around to get used to the smells etc

I am also a fully qualified aromatherapist with 10 year experience in which I made my own natural products. Although I am not qualified in dog massage I have reasearched into it and practised on my willing subjects (my dogs) which went very well I also did Bruno's phyisotherapy when he had spinal problem. So if there is anything I can do to help either you or your dog please do ask. It would be most suitable for skin disorders and muscular/arthritus problems. i have also had good results for the likes of nervous dogs too, helping them relax
