                                                                                   MATTED DOGS.

.We will endeavour to groom your pet to your requirements, however if your pet’s coat is excessively matted, the matted coat will be clipped (shaved) out.

Depending on the severity of the matted coat, which will be discussed during your pet’s consultation, there may be an additional charge in addition to the grooming price, with targeted de-matting (such as under the legs and behind the ears) at £5 or general de-matting over the body at £20 for up to a maximum of 30 minutes.

After this 30 minute point, we will recommend a clip off for the dog’s welfare as per our Clipping Policy, therefore it may not be possible to achieve the style you desire.

.As groomers, our primary concern is to relieve any distress or discomfort your pet may be experiencing as a result of their severely or excessively matted coat. Should your pet come in heavily matted, due to the time it takes and special care needed to remove this, you will be required to sign a Clipping Policy, which will be explained by your groomer and carries a £10 additional charge to the grooming price.

.You will be made aware of any additional costs during your consultation.


                                                                        Two Colleague Groom.

.There can be a number of reasons why it may be necessary for your dog to require two groomers to carry out a groom.

.If the behaviour of the dog warrants two groomers to carry out the groom, this will be charged per 30 minutes of time taken at £10. If it is to ensure the welfare of the dog (e.g. an older dog) and the groom requires two groomers, as with the above, this will be charged per 30 minutes of time taken at £10.

.Extra Care Pets which are pregnant or in season will not be accepted for a groom.

If your pet is found to have FLEAS, we will charge a fee of £20 in addition to the cost of the groom, where your pet will be bathed in a flea shampoo and the salon disinfected.

.If your pet is found to have a TICK, we will charge a fee of £25 to remove in addition to the cost of the groom. However we advise if your pet has a tick to see your vet, as they are known carriers of disease and may require further treatment.

.Some salons may use a drying cabinet. It is the owner’s responsibility to inform the groomer if their pet has any conditions (medical or not) that may exclude them from using the cabinet.

Any pet being placed in the cabinet is done so entirely at the owner’s risk. Any pets that are deemed at the discretion of the grooming team to be in need of immediate veterinary attention will receive this and you agree that you will be liable for any resulting additional costs.

.Any dogs that are aggressive towards a member of the grooming team or another pet may need to be muzzled.

.It is the owner’s responsibility to inform the groomer if they do not wish their pet to be muzzled. Refusal may result in the groom not taking place.
