Top Dog Grooming Services can groom all small to medium breeds. Where bathing is required, consideration must be given to the facilities that you can offer within your home for your dog to be bathed both comfortably and safely. On completion, all areas will be thoroughly swept, vacuumed (if necessary) and fully cleaned in the case of bathing facilities.

Prior to the first groom a full consultation will be carried out so a customer file can be created which will detail condition of the coat, grooming requirements, important medical history of your dog and its disposition/behaviour.

There are many variables in canine grooming such as whether the dog has long or short hair and also if the hair is matted or tangled. Factors which determine the price of a groom include the following:

  • Size of the dog
  • Length of hair
  • Drying time (if bathed)
  • Degree of matting
  • Brushing
  • Clipping
  • Amount of scissor work
  • Behaviour of the dog

De-Matting Policy

Top Dog Grooming Services is owned by an animal lover who treats all the dogs groomed as if they are their own. In the case of severely matted coat, attempts to de-matt will be undertaken, if it is felt that the dog will not suffer during this process. However in the interests of the animal, if a dog is presented in a severely matted state, then the owner will be consulted prior to clipping off, as this is the kindest solution.

It is the owners duty of care towards their pet to maintain their dog’s coat between professional grooming and Top Dog Grooming Services will be more than happy to show you the best ways of looking after your dog’s coat and avoiding the above happening.

Puppy Grooming

It is extremely important for your puppy to have grooming experiences from a young age to get them used to being handled and accustomed to the whole bathing, drying, brushing processes that will become a regular event during their life.

As soon as they have finished their vaccinations, they are ready for their first of many grooming sessions and it is important to get them used to this as soon as possible rather than wait until they actually need to be groomed.
