Drying – your dog will be blow dried by hand, we do not like or use automatic drying cabinets.

Nail clipping – the only option that does not require a prior appointment, and is included as standard on all grooming’s. Nail trimming is an essential part of the dogs comfort and well-being.

Ears – ear cleaning and hair removal is included in the service.

Hand stripping – is Michelle’s speciality, as a former exhibitor, and current championship show judge or cocker spaniels.

This procedure is highly skilled and time-consuming, so is only offered to owners willing to commit to a long-term grooming program, and the coat will need to have not been previously clipped.
