The Muttley Crew

Your dog will need to be groomed every 6-8 weeks and will receive a returning appointment before they leave the salon.

Q. How long does it take to groom my pet?

A. It depends on the size of dog but approximately 2 hours. We usually take in a few dogs about 10:00 and have them finished in the afternoon.  They all get lots of toilet breaks, fresh water and time away from the grooming table.

Q. My dog’s coat keeps getting matted, how can I avoid this?

A. With regular grooming, brushing and use of the proper brush, knots and tangles can be prevented. Always brush your dog before the bath as the suds tend to tighten up any knots.

Q. Why is matting bad for my dog?

A. A dog with a severely matted coat is sometimes unable to regulate their body temperature and can overheat.  Matting can be extremely uncomfortable on a dog as the knots/matts that they start pulling at the dog’s skin. Matted coats may need to be clipped off. They also encourage bacteria and parasites to make their home there.

Q. Should I feed my dog before his visit to the grooming parlour?

A. No, It is best to feed them after grooming in case of any unwanted accidents.

Q. Should I wash my dog between visits?

A. No. Washing your dog between grooms is only likely to cause any knots present on the dog to tighten more which increases the risk of certain dogs being clipped.
