Helen's Dog Grooming Service


The services we offer are as simple or comprehensive as you wish i.e. a simple maintaining wash and brush out through to a full grooming session. 

Your requirement for your own dog will also vary depending on such factors including breed, current condition and of course your personal preferences.

A typical request is for a ‘standard’ groom:

  • Starting with a brush out to eliminate any mats or tangles.
  • ears and eyes are checked for any apparent health problems so that I can inform you, as is the dog's skin, so that I can also determine the most suitable shampoo to use.
  • ear hair will be plucked on breeds that require this  - essential in maintaining a healthy ear canal.
  • nails are cut where necessary.
  • an initial trim will often be done before bathing.
  • the dog is then bathed using only professional shampoos and conditioners.
  • this is followed by drying, usually by using a combination of blaster dryer to remove excess moisture and towel finishing, to prepare the coat for final styling.
  • eyes and ears may be gently cleaned and in between paw pads will be trimmed out.
  • any final clipper work and/or hand scissoring, if required, is carried out to complete the desired style.
  • a coat conditioning spray is applied.

It is clearly important that I fully understand what you are looking for when you bring your dog to me. Please let me know if you prefer particular treatments or styling and I will do my best to accommodate.

I used to look at (my dog) Smokey and think, 'If you were a little smarter you could tell me what you were thinking,' and he'd look at me like he was saying, 'If you were a little smarter, I wouldn't have to’
