Saturday grooming appointments

We know during the week isn’t always convenient to get your dog an appointment in the grooming salon. We offer weekends appointments for just that reason.

Get in touch today if we can help with get your pooch looking its best.

Socialising your dog

Why leave your dog at home when they could make new friends and spend the day playing?

We offer a discount for a second dog if you have more than one!

The Blue Cross say the following about socialising a new puppy:

Experiences during the first year of a dog’s life make all the difference to future temperament and character. Taking the time to socialise your puppy can result in a friendly adult dog that enjoys the company of people, can be taken anywhere and lives life to the full.

We couldn’t agree more. Book your dog in to make new friends today.

Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 20.08.36

Booking in as we are full most days

We’ve mentioned this in previous blogs and this is just a gentle reminder. We are full to capacity most days (which is amazing!) however it means we won’t be able to accept dogs who haven’t got a booking.

We don’t want to disappoint anyone or their pooches so please contact us to book your dog in in advance.

We take bookings by phone, email, Facebook message or through Twitter.

Charity walk Saturday 9th July

Save the date!! We are planning a charity walk to take place on Saturday 9th July. We are currently choosing an appropriate route and a charity but we will keep you updated and give you the full details when we have them.

However, please save the date and bring your doggy friends along to raise some money for charity.

Booking your dog in

As we have become busier (which is amazing!) we require owners to book their dogs in to day care in advance. We don’t want to turn people away; however, if we don’t have space we may have to.

This can cause inconvenience to the owner and not something we want to do.

We can take bookings by phone, email or a Facebook or Twitter message.

Booking your dog in to day care

As we’ve become increasingly busy over the last few months, we would really appreciate booking your dog being booked in for day care. Previously, we’ve been able to accept dogs without booking; however, due to the numbers we now have we aren’t always able to do this. To avoid disappointment and inconvenience please book your dog in with us prior to arriving.

You’re able to book over the phone, Facebook message or even Twitter!

Thank you for your understanding with this :)

Saturday opening times

As you may now know, we are open Saturdays! If you need to go shopping or you are working, we can take care of your pooch. Get in touch with us to book them in.

Hot Dogs dog grooming

We’ve had some cuties in our groom room over the past few weeks. If you would like to book your spot, whether its a bath or full groom let us know today. We are getting booked up early so don’t hang around.
