Your dog might be an omnivore but we believe it's unnecessary to harm other animals to keep your dog clean and at its most fabulous; which is why we only use vegan and cruelty-free products to groom them.
A popular choice for short haired breeds, and a nice option for longer haired dogs in between larger grooming sessions. For short haired dogs this includes a de-shedding treatment, and longer haired dogs receive basic facial trimming (incl. hair out of eyes.)
The most common groom for medium/longer haired dogs. These look really cute, don't require as much styling, are more affordable, and focus more on practicality.
There are two main styles of full clips:
Kennel Cut – This is a typical shave down, generally a half an inch of hair or less left on the body. These are a favourite since kennel cuts are easiest to maintain. This is the "short back and sides" of dog grooming.
Teddy Bear Trim – this style makes your dog look like an adorable teddy bear cub. Normally the hair is left a bit longer than a kennel cut, first using clippers, then scissoring the dog for a flawless finish. The shape of the face is cut to look like a teddy bear (rather than a kennel cut where the face is usually shaved/trimmed very short). The appearance of this cut does change depending on the type and quality of coat.
These grooms are for owners who really want their breed to be instantly recognisable as the breed they are. Every dog breed traditionally has its own specialty trim, each with their own set of “rules” (although many of these grooms are modified for everyday pet owners.) These grooms usually require the most at-home maintenance. Please note that cross-breed dogs (e.g. Cavoodles, Labradoodles etc.) do not have their own standards therefore they do not have their own traditional groom types.
This groom goes where your imagination wants to take it! We can incorporate things like hair colouring , leg warmers, mohawks,
Asian fusion styles - heck, we can even do a "can I speak to the manager" hair-do if you want!
Prices for these grooms are quoted upon request and are subject to the condition of the coat.
A groom out is the process of removing the undercoat from dogs with a double, combination, or heavy coat. Usually this undercoat is not effectively removed with simple brushing or combing, as these focus primarily on removing hair and debris from the top layer of fur. A groom out of your dog helps facilitate the growth of healthy new hair, the regulation of body temperature, stops matting and discomfort, and helps reduce the amount of fur your pet sheds around your home. The process involves a de-shedding treatment and conditioning treatment. The finish leaves the dog soft and fluffy, but the use of thinning scissors helps shape and refine the coat.
Hand-Stripping is a type of grooming method that removes excess hair from a dog’s coat.
Most grooms use clippers or scissors and cut off the top layer of hair on a dog’s coat, whereas hand stripping the hair is done by hand; using a painless "pulling" technique. This allows a new coat to grow in (by just clipping a coat, you’re only taking off the top layer of dead fur, so the dog’s coat can look duller in texture and colour.)
Not all dog coat types can use this method (it is mostly for wire coated dogs) however, it is the healthiest method for those dogs who can use it. It also lasts a lot longer than a typical shave down groom. However, some dogs will not tolerate the process so we do have to see how your dog goes.
