Bundle of Fluff
So, you got yourself a puppy, well we are here to help, with all your questions on puppy problems from…. Grooming, caring, training and feeding your new pup. We have designed lots of different puppy packages to tailor to your puppies grooming needs. We try not to shave any puppy before the age of 12 to 18 months, this give the coat time to grow, thicken up and change not only in texture but sometimes in colour as well,
I believe where possible to help get your puppy used to the whole grooming prosses we try to get them in as soon as possible and as often as possible. We recommend as often as every 4 weeks from 4 months of age until around 12 to 18 months, like everything in your young puppies live routine is everything so to be groomed this is to be a way of live to them so it needs to be a fun, safe and happy playful place to come.
We can help and advise you on any style of grooming and trimming even down to grooming techniques and methods to help you keep your pup in pristine condition. We can recommend how often your pup needs grooming and what style of trim would suit your pup’s lifestyle needs for when they are older.
We want to help and advise you on their coat change, growth and manageability as they grow. We do not want to end up having to shave them off unnecessary or before for there time

Trip to the Salon
When your puppy comes in to the salon for their groom we try to make this a fun, happy, playful and stress free time where they can play, explore and socialize with other dogs, this can be very tiring as young puppies often drop off for a pup nap, this we encourage as I feel if they are comfy and relaxed in this environment to be able to go to sleep they will go home a happy pup and above all next time they visit they will hopefully remember their experience and return excited and willing to come for their groom.
