I can't recommend Scooby & Friends highly enough. We have 3 gorgeous greyhounds who adore Sarah and love their trips to the salon.One of our girls is particularly shy and cautious of humans and Sarah has worked very hard in building up her confidence. It's amazing to see how far she's come, she will even jump on the grooming table herself, it must be love! The girls come home looking and smelling beautiful with a cute ribbon to boot.read more

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!
