Partial Grooming – Feet, Face & Tail

At DogsBody Grooming Parlour we also offer a partial grooming service, when it is unnecessary for a full groom.  This service is great to maintain your dogs coat during the colder months when you may choose to have it longer in length.

We clean out the hair between the pads, blade out the hair between the back legs, clean and pluck (if required) the ears, bath at which time we can express the anal glands (if required), blow dry and groom out the coat then clip the softened toe nails. We trim the hair over and around the eyes, mouth, under the tail and around the paws.  In many instances this can save your dog from becoming severely matted and requiring a complete clip off in the springtime.

Short or long haired dogs can be brought in when they have become too difficult for you to bath or have been in mud, rubbish or anything else smelly. We bath them, clean their ears, clip their toenails and send them home smelling sweet again.

House Rules

We like friendly, well-behaved dogs, so if your dog is hard to handle and we need to use two groomers, there will be an additional charge.

Matts: We believe in humanity before vanity. Matts and knots can be very painful to remove, so we reserve the right to refuse to dematt a dog. Matt removal will be an additional charge.  We will discuss the options with you and decide which is the best for your dog.

Scheduled Appointments: Punctuality is appreciated as we are on a tight schedule.  If you are more than 15 minutes late your appointment may need to be re-scheduled.  We would prefer you drop your dog off early rather than being late for your appointment.  Later pickup by arrangement only.

Missed Appointments: We reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee unless 24hrs notice is received.
