Grooming Price Guide

If you would like to meet us prior to booking an appointment, then please call to arrange a FREE consultation appointment. These appointments can be offered outside of our normal working hours so we can take time to discuss how you want your dog to look. Your dog can settle in and take a look around our new grooming room!

Until we meet your dog we cannot give you a fixed cost – grooming costs depend on many variables:

  • Coat condition
  • Length of coat
  • Skin condition
  • Behaviour of your dog
  • Option you require

Below we give you an indication of grooming costs by breed, but these are a guide only and the price you pay may be different.

Paying by Card - Please note we accept all major debit and credit cards.

If customers repeatedly cancel or are late for appointments, we will introduce a pre-pay system so that you pay for your next groom in advance.

Grooming Options

Wash & Go

Bath in our HydroExcel Hydrobath, pH-balanced shampoo and thorough towel dry using our super absorbent cloths. Wash & Go is only available while you wait – (estimated wait times are in brackets in the table of approx prices). Please note, we do not completely dry your dog with our Wash & Go service.

Find out more about our Wash & Go service:

Full Groom & Clip

Bath in our HydroExcel Hydrobath, pH balanced shampoo and thorough towel dry using our super absorbent cloths.

Your dog will be dried using our powerful yet gentle dryers.

Your dog is then clipped and styled into a style of your choosing or to the breed standard style.

Hand stripping

Hand stripping a dog’s coat correctly is a real skill and can take years of practice to be able to “work” the coat and obtain an expert finish.

Hand stripping is charged at £50 per hour. This may seem expensive, but correct hand stripping is extremely labour intensive and as the groomer literally uses their finger and thumb to pluck the coat, the cost goes some way to compensate for the wear and tear on the groomer.

If you would like your dog bathed as well in our HydroExcel Hydrobath this is charged at only £10 extra.

Full Groom 50/50

Bath in our HydroExcel Hydrobath, pH balanced shampoo and thorough towel dry using our super absorbent cloths.

Your dog will be dried using our powerful yet gentle dryers.

Some dogs will allow their coats to be hand stripped along their neck, shoulders and back, but will not tolerate stripping down their sides and legs. A 50/50 groom means that we will hand strip the coat to the point where the dog will not allow us to pluck anymore, and then we will use specially adapted stripping knives which both cut and pull the coat. These specialist tools mean that the coat on the dog’s sides and legs will be partly cut and partly stripped into a style of your choosing or to the breed standard.

Please note: full grooms include nail trimming and cleaning ears.

Puppy Grooming Classes

We recommend that you bring your new puppy (under 6 months) along to one of our puppy grooming classes. 

It is so important that your puppy enjoys the grooming experience from a young age.

We want to ensure that grooming is just part of your pup's life and something they look forward to!
