Grooming FAQs

IMG_3755What makes Woofers different?

Right from the very start we based our choices on the fundamental concept of “improving the life of urban pets” so rather than developing a process that looks good for humans or sounds good for marketing, we’ve developed processes that works for the dog.  With over a 50 years combined experience working with canines and more than 20 years experience in our salon we’ve managed to cut out the riff raff and assess “grooming” from the primal needs of the dog.  Our ability and operating procedure means we can maximise your dogs enjoyment of the salon experience while still making the service affordable.

“Grooming” – who, what & why?

Grooming is important for so many reasons and as your pets’ provider (owner) you have a responsibility (amongst other things) to ensure their coat and skin is in healthy condition.  Grooming needs will vary and some dogs may only require a swim in a puddle and occasional nail trim,  some may need regular brushing and some will require regular bathing, trimming, medicated shampoos and all the skills that an experienced dog groomer can offer.

For advice about the needs of your pets coat and skin please ask our salon staff, we’re always happy to help… the dogs.

 

Our grooming services vary according to the dog’s need but for simplicity we’ve broken them down to four categories.

Warm massage bath, basic brushing and stripping of undercoat (no scissors or clipping), nail trimming, ear cleaning included.
