Dog Grooming

Treat your furbaby to a pamper experience with us!

Taking pride in caring for your four legged friends

We believe in ‘quality over quantity’ when it comes to our grooming style. At our state of the art grooming pawlour, your precious furbaby will be treated to a pampering experience at the hands of our qualified professional groomers.

Our priority is your pets’ health, happiness, safety and comfort and all our clients are treated exactly as we would expect our own dogs to be treated.

We are specialists in handling of dogs that are nervous of grooming and needing special attention. We will only progress at a pace that your dog is comfortable with. Our groomer Lyndsey is an affiliate member of the COAPE Association of Pet Behaviourists and Trainers ‘CAPBT’, with a diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour and Training, and is also a certified behaviourist with the IAABC (International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants).

Studying canine behaviour allows us to be able to read your dog and understand if your dog is feeling nervous or fearful of anything and through positive reinforcement (treats for good behaviour) your dog will learn to accept the grooming procedure and look forward to the next visit. No dog will ever be held down and forced to be groomed. We promote ethical treatment of animals and if we feel your dog is too stressed to continue, we will terminate the process and discuss with you some other options.

Why groom your dog?

Here at Inn the Doghouse we believe that it is essential to the health of your dog that they receive regular grooming to maintain a healthy coat and skin:

Preventing painful matting (knotting) of longer coats

Identify & eliminate parasitic infestations such as fleas, ticks and mites

Detect early signs of illness such as ear infections, tooth decay, lumps etc

Save your home from excess shedding of dead hair and dander

Results in a more enjoyable, clean, fresh smelling cuddle monster

When your pet arrives at Inn the Doghouse Grooming Pawlour we will carry out an initial assessment of your dog to check that he/she looks to be in good general health, free from parasites and check the condition of the coat. We can then discuss with you the most suitable method of grooming.
