The Puppy's First Groom sets the stage for how your pet will respond to being groomed for the rest of their life, so it’s vital to make the experience as pleasant as possible. During this time an experienced groomer will get the puppy used to the noises and smells of the salon, give the puppy lots of cuddles and praise, introduce them to the staff and generally make their first visit an all-around fun experience.
Puppies will have an approximately one hour visit. They will be introduced to the grooming experience during which they will have a soothing bath, and a gentle fluff dry and light trim. If they are responding well the nails will be clipped and ears cleaned with a mild ear cleaning solution.
This service costs £35.
Puppy University is also available and it’s done in four stages.
First time they have a wash & blow dry, second time wash & blow dry plus nail clipping, third time wash & blow dry, nail clipping plus introduction to clipping and scissoring, and finally, the fourth visit they get a wash & blow dry plus Tidy Up (see above). Puppy University works well for very young or anxious and timid pups.
Pups are ready to be groomed as soon as after their second set of puppy inoculations. They benefit from this treatment up until 6 months of age.
This package costs £125 saving you £15.
Handstripping coordinates the shedding and makes room for a new coat to grow. It keeps the right colour and texture to the dog’s fur. Stripping is the proper grooming method for most terriers and some silky coated breeds. This technique brings exceptional results when it's done correctly. The process can start at 3 months old and be carried out monthly. We ask our customers with Irish Terriers to bring them every 8 weeks, because they are prone to go bold if left longer!
Mud Bath Shedding Treatment - A deep cleaning, sweet smelling mud bath full of hydrating omega oils and pumped full of B vitamins to help relieve and prevent excessive shedding. This quenches dry coats in hydration and is ideal for thick coats. This lush treatment naturally cleans and treats clogged hair follicles, releases undercoat and removes loose fur.
Double coated dogs such as Pomeranians, Golden Retrievers, Border Collies, Siberian Huskies naturally shed and may have a complete new coat at least twice a year. A regular de-shed treatment is highly recommended for these breeds.
Menthol and Peppermint Mud Treatment - Menthol is a natural plant extract that is an excellent cooling agent and counter irritant widely used for pain relief. A refreshing antiseptic and blood circulation stimulant, menthol gives the skin that cool feeling while reducing itchiness and tenderness. Peppermint: This natural plant extract adds cooling, bactericidal, and anti-irritant properties to the Mobility Mud treatment. Peppermint helps reduce inflammation and redness and cools the skin by constricting capillaries, increasing circulation. Your dog will feel renewed and refreshed with a blast of pure-green energy.
Vital Spa Conditioning - This treatment replenishes and protects the coat's natural keratin protein, achieving a fuller coat, loosening dead hair for less shedding, while adding intense hydration that restores softness and shine. Keratin strengthens the hair follicles and eliminates static.
Spa Facial Scrub - It has a mild and concentrated formula which naturally exfoliates and gently hydrates the skin. The refreshing blend of vanilla and blueberry effectively removes dirt and tear stains, and will not irritate eyes. This treatment is great for all skin types and pets of all ages.
