Pets and Grooming - Dog Groomer in Christchurch, Dorset
We have a fully equipped grooming parlour & we cover all aspects of dog grooming that should be available from a dog groomer, from a good dog wash for when your dog has been playing in the New Forest to the full Monty, dog bath, blow dry, brush out, hand stripping or clipping, nail trimming, ear plucking and breed specific styling.
I am happy to meet the dog first and help decide what’s best for his/her coat type or if it’s a cross breed suggest what will look best.
Anal glands will be checked if you ask when you bring your dog in.
Grooming time may vary depending on the amount of work involved and if the dog is happy for us to proceed,some new dogs need cuddles,reassurance and time to settle before we can start work on them.
Introducing puppies to grooming is always done in calm & friendly manner. They are often very wriggly and a little unsure, so they need to be given time to adjust and plenty of cuddles.
Puppies are usually brought in for a face and paw trim until their coat is ready for its first proper clip. This is usually around six months. Nails usually need to be trimmed before this time. Nails can be trimmed in a couple of minutes so no appointment is necessary. Although it’s always best to phone first.

“Our Westie seems to love going to be groomed, when we arrive the groomers welcome him by name, it reminds me of when I used to take my children to playschool. Having used a number of different groomers with my dogs, this one is the best groomers.”

“The labradoodles Henry and Charlie have never looked so well groomed since they became clients. They really enjoy going too which is a first. Our million dollar looking doggies are looking billion dollar woofers now after their visit today. And the smell great. Above all and most important they get a nice experience and looked after... They tell us don't you worry!”

“Wonderful service. My Shepherd and friend's Utonagan came home looking superb. I've used other dog groomers in the past and this is definitely one of the top ranking. Thank you so much girls. Dogs look and feel amazing.”
