owners & groomers need to be a team

Did you know that we are ALL required to comply with the Five Freedoms under The Animal Welfare Act 2006. This particularly crosses over between owners and groomers under “to be protected from pain, injury, suffering and disease” point. Owner responsibility: 🐾Keep the coat in a healthy and clean condition 🐾Depending on what breed you have it may require brushing every day 🐾Recently the more popular breeds such as cockapoo, cavapoo, and cavashon are particularly prone to matting and it is recommended that they are groomed between 4 weeks and 8 weeks (depending on your lifestyle and brushing regime) Groomer responsibility: 🐶Prioritising the dogs welfare above anything else 🐶Ensuring that all equipment is correctly used and used in a safe manner 🐶Working with the owner to achieve the best possible outcome from the session - sharing knowledge and support for at home grooming However if your dog is matted we must do what is right for them and that could mean shaving the coat - no groomer wants to do this, it’s uncomfortable for your dog, it’s much harder work for us and it damages our equipment.  If you have any questions about understanding your dogs coat, how often they should be brushed, what brushes to use or the best techniques for getting the coat brushed through properly then please do get in contact. 🐾🐶❤️
