*This service is not available to matted dogs as they will need to have a "full clip"
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 and the clip on the body is all one length
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 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 breed standards therefore they do not have their own traditional groom types. However, you can book under "traditional" if you want a longer, fluffier hairstyle.
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.
CREATIVE & STYLISED
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. When booking this type of groom click "traditional" in the booking section and make a note of what you are looking for.
Hand-Stripping is a type of grooming method, done by hand using a painless "pulling" technique, that removes excess hair from a dog’s coat.
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.
