Here at Ashgate Grooming we offer a range of services to cater for individual pet owner’s needs. It is essential to keep your pet groomed regularly for his health and your families health. A dog shed’s its coat naturally and depending on their breed, or breed mix, depends on how much they shed.
We will always try to groom your dog to your needs, be that to the breed standard or for a practical cut that suits your dog’s lifestyle When you first come to see us, we will take the time to discuss your needs with you and will be able to assess how long the trim will take, and how much it will cost. You are very welcome to come and discuss your needs with us without having booked an appointment. We want you to be comfortable with the service we are offering.
We can provide grooming for most breeds and sizes of dog but our speciality is hand stripping.
To keep you dog looking good between trims, we also offer advice and help about daily coat care and home brushing. We are very happy to discuss particular products or brushes you can use.
Every dog is different and therefore, every dog trim is different. We will tailor make your dog’s trim according to his needs. To discuss the options and book an appointment please call Jacky or Sue on 01460 281528
Knife stripping is suitable for many breeds. The technique allows us to break the coat down gently without damaging the hair follicles, therefore, keeping the texture of the coat intact. As the coat is not taken so short, the finished dog will appear more naturally presented and the coat tends to grow more slowly. Dogs that are stripped tend not to need bathing so often.
Included in your trim price.
Nails, Ears and Glands
We will trim nails and clean ears and anal glands where necessary and bring to your attention anything we feel needs more specialist advice. We do not treat ear conditions—this is a job for your vet.
Bath & Dry
If you would like your dog bathed when he is trimmed, or between trims, we offer a bath/dry service. Dogs are bathed in natural shampoos, or we will use your own if you prefer. We dry all dogs by hand to cause as little stress to your dog as possible.
