Frequently Asked Questions
How long does dog grooming usually take?
This depends on the breed, but if the hair needs to be cut, we ask that you allow three hours to wash, dry and cut the hair. If the hair is matted, it may take more time. If there is no scissoring, it generally takes less time.
Do you bathe the dog first?
To get an even cut, the hair needs to be clean, so we always bathe the dog as part of grooming.
What is hand stripping?
Hand stripping is a professional service where our groomers pull the dead hair out of the coat of non-shedding dogs.
My dog’s hair is matted. Do I need to cut the hair short?
If the hair is allowed to knot or develop ‘matts’, this can be unhealthy for the dog’s skin. Before washing the dog, it is necessary to brush out all knots. If the hair is matted, it may be possible to de-matt the coat, but unfortunately, this can be painful. We may need to charge more for heavily matted hair. If the hair is so badly matted, we may recommend cutting the hair short. If skin disease is present, our vets will need to address it.
