Personally there would be nowhere else on earth I would take my fur baby! Knowing Sarah personally and watching her find her true calling in dog grooming was really something special. Many people call themselves animal lovers but actions truely do speak louder than words and Sarah never stops giving to her community and being the voice for all those four legged babies who cannot speak for themselves!

You just need to look at the before and after shots to know that you're in the right hands. I was lucky enough to find Sarah at her new business and won't be letting her get away again.

I often have trepidation about the care that Morris my goldie will receive when I drop him to a groomers but Sarah's manner when we met made me feel confident and seeing my boy bounding out happy and wearing his pink and blue bows, looking like a movie star dog means we will definitely become regulars 🙂

Poodle Clip: Dog Grooming Services – Frankie the Toy Poodle

July 23rd, 2017|0 Comments

Frankie is a 2 year old Toy Poodle. Frankie regularly gets a poodle clip at Scooby & Friends Dog Grooming Canberra. Frankie visits the salon every 5 weeks for a pamper session. As her hair continually grows she needs to be clipped to keep her hair at a practical length. Clipping a dogs coat doesn't mean it's going to be shaved right down to the skin.

Importance of regular grooming

Grooming all year round is important, including winter months

If you pooch has fur that needs to be clipped, it is best to stick to a regular schedule all year round to keep the fur in top condition that is knot free. A 4-6 week schedule is necessary if you would like to keep your dogs coat in a longer length, or 6-8 weeks if you are happy to keep your dog short. Having your dog clipped does not mean it needs to be ‘shaved’ all year round. You can choose what length you would like, as regular grooming sessions will keep the coat maintained. If you dog does come to the salon with heavily knotted/matted hair, the only safe and comfortable way is to take your dog very short and start over. Just remember hair will always grow back! Regular grooming sessions can also pick up any skin issues, lumps or infections that may need vet attention. In addition to regular grooming sessions, regularly brushing and combing at home is essential. Please ask if you would like a demonstration on brushing and combing your dog.
So remember, to keep your pooch looking and feeling fabulous, consider the following recommendation:
4 – 6 weeks grooming schedule if you would like your dog’s coat a longer length
6 – 8 weeks grooming schedule if you would like a shorter more practical length
REGULAR BRUSHING AND COMBING EVERY COUPLE OF DAYS!
