Styling

When it comes to dog grooming no two owners or two groomers have exactly the same taste so our grooming is totally dependent on the owners requests.We will always try to accomodate any reasonable request. We will not de-matt dogs in the interests of their welfare however, we will work closely with owners needing extra help with maintaining their dogs coat.

All the groomers at Dogtails are City and Guilds qualified and have been trained in both pet trim and breed standard styles. 

It is our aim to keep both the dogs and the owners happy.

Part of the service

All our basic,and full groom packages include:

A full health check, bath, blow dry, ear clean, nail trim, blueberry facial and cologne.

Extra Charges

We reserve the right to increase our quoted prices should your dog be matted, overgrown, overweight, have parasites such as fleas or ticks, show aggression towards the groomer or need extra time due to behaviour. We pride ourselves on our ability to rehabilitate a dogs fear of grooming however this costs time and demands patience. We are extremely experienced and will do our utmost to make every dogs time with us as pleasant as possible.
