If your dog has a few mats in different areas of their coat, we’ll spend time slowly removing these and can advise on brushing techniques you can do at home to avoid the mats returning.

Clip Off – £15 EXTRA*

We always put the welfare of the dogs in our care first, which is why we won’t de-mat for longer than 15 minutes. If we find that this would be necessary, we will discuss clipping, which is not only more comfortable for your dog but will cause them less stress. Should this be necessary, you will be asked to sign our Clipping Policy and we will guide you through what to expect following their groom.
