Dog Grooming .............. why is it more expensive than my hairdresser??

  • Your hairdresser will most likely have just a few pairs of scissors, combs and brushes.  As groomers we need many types of scissors, different types of combs and brushes for different hair types, different styling techniques, removing mats and knots.  We also need a variety of different dryers.  We get through many towels, poo bags, paper towels, disinfectant and air fresheners.  

  • Some dogs come into us very dirty & matted.  This takes time to deal with, and is quite difficult for the dog. 

    We would hope that you don't turn up to your hairdresser not having washed or brushed your hair for weeks!


  • Occasionally a dog will have had a bad experience at a grooming salon, and is either very nervous or aggressive.  It may just be this behaviour is in their nature.  The groom has to go ahead to avoid health issues developing and to keep the dog in good condition.  In these instances we need to go slowly and at the dog's pace.  We may have to wear bite gloves and possibly spread the groom over a couple of sessions to spare the dog unnecessary stress.  These dogs can be unpredictable and we do occasionally get bitten.  

    We would hope that you don't bite your hairdresser or have an accident all over them!


  • We don't expect that you ask your hairdresser to clean your bottom, squeeze your glands (that you don't have incidentally).  They probably don't clean your ears and eyes either, or trim your nails.

  • Some dogs wriggle around a lot, making the groom quite difficult.  Whilst children are wrigglers, they are probably a little more obliging than a 100lb Retriever!

  • Your hairdresser only cuts the hair on your head, thankfully!
