Nail Clipping

Not many dogs enjoy having their nails trimmed but it is very important to keep them at a good length as if they are allowed to get too long it can cause pain & effect the dog's joints. If you have difficulty keeping on top of your dog's nails at home, we are happy to book your pup in for a quick pedicure. 


Late Fees

Please arrive for your appointment on time. If you are more than 15 minutes late unfortunately your appointment may be cancelled and you will need to rebook. If you fail to turn up to an appointment you will be expected to pay 50% of the total groom price. Don't worry if you can't remember exactly when your appointment was booked for, feel free to give us a message or call the shop and we can find out for you. 


We understand life can get pretty hectic sometimes and may mean you need to cancel your pooches pamper session. If this is the case please try to cancel your appointment with more than 24hours notice; failing to do so will incur a charge of 50% of the total groom price 

Matting Policy 

It is the OWNER'S  duty of care towards their pooch to maintain their coat between grooms. If you are unsure of what equipment/ method you should be using, we are always happy to advise and demonstrate to ensure you are able to correctly care for your dog's coat, thus preventing them from becoming matted.

If the dog has small areas of matts that are able to be brushed out without causing the dog unnecessary distress, we will do everything in our power to use the appropriate tools to de-matt these areas, however please note this may incur an extra charge due to the process taking longer than the anticipated time of a normal groom.

Furthermore, if there is a considerable amount of matting, unfortunately, it may be the case that these matts need to be clipped off using a very short blade. This is because attempting to brush out these larger areas of matts can be extremely painful and traumatic for the dog and can put them off the grooming experience in the future. Additionally, in some cases it is impossible to brush out matts of this extent, so whilst you may think you could attempt to brush them out yourself at home, if our groomer is advising they be clipped off this is because it may not be physically possible to brush the matts out or that it is unfair on your pooch. This is not a decision we take likely but the welfare of the dog is always our priority. If a dog requires shaving off due to matting, there will be an extra charge to contribute towards the extra time taken to carry this out, and the servicing of the equipment used.
