Dapper Dogz - Dog Grooming Service in Rustington, West Sussex

Based in Rustington we provide a dog grooming service where you can watch your dog being pampered in a relaxed, calm and informal atmosphere.

Your dog will be given 100% care and attention in our fully equipped salon with our fully trained staff. We provide a stress-free experience with no cages and one-to-one hand drying. Whilst being groomed your four-legged friend will have a direct view out of the window to watch the world go by.

About Us:
Coming from a farming background I have always had a passion for the welfare and care of animals. After a career within the admin sector I was lucky enough to have the backing to pursue my long awaited chosen career of dog grooming.

After successfully qualifying as a Dog Groomer Stylist, I started working from home and built up a good customer base. Over time it became apparent that I needed to expand and hence opened Dapper Dogz in Rustington. I now have four young ladies working with me, two of which are also City & Guilds qualified Dog Groomers and the other two City & Guilds Apprentices.

Why Choose Us:
Upon arrival, new customers and their owners will have an informal chat to establish coat condition and styling requirements which they will require for their everyday lives. Whether it be groomed to Kennel Club Standards for show, or shorter styles to reflect working dogs or simply family pets who have an abundance of energy and enjoy muddy woods, sand and sea (plus of course the occasional smelly fish or fox poo)! There are many reasons to choose Dapper Dogz, below are just a few benefits we offer as part of our service.

Full Groom: This includes a nail trim, between pads and paw trim, natural and gentle plucking plus cleanse of ears, a shampoo wash (with a 100% natural shampoo), if requested anal glands, a gentle blow dry, full body brushing, a full coat styling/clipping and scissoring, handstripping, on request a natural luxury finishing cologne spritz.

Walk-in Service: Within this service we can offer a wash and towel rub, nails clipped, minor eye trims, bum trims, anal gland check, facial scrub & tear stain treatment, teeth whitening and breath freshening.

Although this is a walk-in we would recommend that you ring prior to popping in just so that you are not kept waiting, however if your lovely furry friend has rolled in something unsavoury then please just come straight down.

Hydrotherapy: We have a special Ozone Spa Bath that helps your pooch benefit from the very latest in spa therapy; combining three of nature’s most powerful elements, heat, water and air. Our Ozone Spa Bath is effective as it uses hydro-massage, ozone, and aromatherapy to ease stress, bathe away physical fatigue, relax joints and muscles, treat skin and coat. Ozone is the most powerful and rapid acting oxidizer man can produce and will oxidize all bacteria, mould and yeast spores, organic material and viruses.

Theraputic Mud Treatment: Nourish, strengthen and encourage healthy cell regeneration with a therapeutic mud body treatment. As the mud detoxifies your dog’s skin, removing dirt, oils and other toxins, dead skin cells are replaced with nourishing minerals and soothing relief, boosting your dog’s ability to fight infections, dry skin and other irritations that can lead to canine dermatitis. Mud is applied all over the body and massaged into the skin and fur.

Luxury Spa Treatments:
All spa treatments can be combined with a grooming package, please enquire as to your specific needs and a combination cost.

Spa Facial Scrub & Tear Stain Treatment: This mild yet concentrated, lightly foaming facial cleanser soothes and balances. It has natural exfoliating activity and is slightly hydrating. The refreshing blend of vanilla and blueberry effectively removes dirt and tear stains and will not sting eyes. Great for all skin types and ages.

Facial Cleanser: This is beneficial for all dog breeds and especially for those with facial folds or deep wrinkles where accumulation of food, mucus, dry tears and debris can lead to skin infections. The tearless blend of blueberry and coconut cleanse and moisturise while reducing trapped odours.

It is great for dry or chafed elbows and sunburned noses. All-natural ingredients include aloe, shea butter, cocoa butter, mango seed butter and Vitamin E. These ingredients offer antiseptic and moisturising properties.

Paw Therapy / nails included: Paws can become under stress caused by hot or cold terrain, dust, dirt, grass and other surfaces. This treatment is full of moisturising properties which will relax and freshen which will help restore and clean dry damaged paws.

Teeth Whitening & Breath Freshening: This fast acting natural product cleans teeth, removing plaque and tartar on all breeds. A proprietary blend of natural plant enzymes, baking soda and peppermint oil helps keep teeth white, whilst controls germs that cause bad breath and plaque. To finish we use a natural formula which helps to freshen breath and keeps teeth and gums clean.

“Since moving to the south coast four years ago a friend told us about Dapper Dogs as we have two Labradors. We love having our treasures looking spick and span whatever the weather and when we consider it's too cold for a bath Pauline gives them a thorough dry grooming whereby the worst of their moulting is combed out (hence less fur drop). Their waggy tails on arrival and leaving says it all about Dapper Dogs owner, Pauline; she is a real dog lover. Dapper Dogs rates are very competitive and having recommended the service to all our dog-owning neighbours, we highly recommend them to anyone in the area with a dog. Tom & Barbara, Angmering”

“Willow always looks like the most untidiest and dirtiest Cocker Spaniel when I bring her to you, but always comes home looking and smelling beautiful. Your grooming skills are first class and it is a pleasure to recommend you. Claire”

“Rosie has been attending Dapper Dogz for some years now and loves every minute of her visit. In fact even when passing the door, she just has to look in and say hello! We are delighted with the care and treatment she gets and cannot recommend Pauline and Dapper Dogz highly enough. Sue & Maurice Alcock, Rustington”
