We recommend grooming your beloved pet every 4 to 6 weeks, or more frequent visits if your dog is accustomed to an indoor lifestyle.
Regular grooming will build a trusting relationship between your dog and the groomers, making the overall experience more pleasurable for your pet.

Shedding Solution – R30
specialised equipment is used to remove around 70% of excess shedding hair that normal grooming would not, so it does not end up all over your house. This is commonly used for breeds with double coats such as the Husky and Labrador.
Furminators are available for sale at HotDogs
Teeth brushing – R10
Please note that this will not replace the need to have your dog’s teeth descaled by a veterinarian. We will use a disinfected doggy toothbrush and Pet Dent toothpaste.
Anal Glands Excretion – No extra charge
your dog may be experiencing discomfort by blocked or full anal glands. Discomfort is evidenced by the dog dragging its posterior on the ground (“scooting”), licking or biting at the anus. We will check and excrete the glands if required at no extra charge.
First Timers Cut and / or Bath – No extra charge
introductory bath and / or cut recommended for puppies after their first vaccinations. Making sure they are comfortable and that their first experience is a good one.
Dematting – No extra charge
This will only be done if the dog can be dematted without experiencing pain or discomfort as this is a lengthy and uncomfortable procedure for your dog. If the matting is excessive we will contact you to suggest alternatives.
