The Muttley Crew

Services and Pricing

I work on an appointment basis. When you bring your pet for the first time a schedule for future appointments will be agreed. Most fluffy type teddy bear styles are on a 6-8 week schedule in order to maintain the trim. This schedule will be agreed according to coat type and the desired trim. Prices vary depending on the size, behaviour, interval between sessions, style and time it takes to finish the dog.

Grooming Options

Full Groom

A professional groom that is tailored to your dogs breed and lifestyle.

  • Firstly, the hygiene areas and under pads are clipped free of hair.
  • A health check is carried out on the dogs ears, skin, coat, nails and gums.
  • Each dog receives 2 warm washes and is lathered in suitable shampoo leaving him smelling fresh and clean. Tea tree or aloe Vera to soothe irritated skin, brightening shampoos for white dogs, general cleansing or medicated shampoos.
  • Each dog is dried using certain drying techniques and the coat is brushed and detangled using specialised products.
  • The body, legs, paws, head and tail are clipped/scissored and styled accordingly.
  • All nails including the dew claw are clipped.
  • Doggie cologne and a bow finishes the groom.

Wash and Blow Dry

This is a popular option for soft fluffy coated breeds in between their regular full grooming appointment. It can help prevent matting.

  • A wash and blow dry includes all that is carried out in a full groom except the body and legs are not trimmed.
  • The head and paws are tidied. Nails are clipped and ears sanitised.

Nail Clipping

Dog’s nails require regular trimming if they are not getting worn down enough from the ground outside which acts as a nail file. Sometimes the nails can curl so tightly and embed the skin which is very painful and can lead to an infection.  These will be trimmed along with the dew claw.

De-Shedding Treatments

Dogs shed at different times of the year and some coats shed more than others. Factors affecting shedding include genetics, diet, breed, season, and the frequency of removing the undercoat. If your dog is shedding a lot why not book them in for a de-shedding treatment. Specials Grooming Rakes and tools are used to remove the dead coat so your dogs coat will look healthy and shiny again.

Health Check

A health check is carried out on each pet prior to grooming. This can bring to attention any health matters that may otherwise go un-noticed that may need veterinary referral.

  • The skin will be checked for any irritation, foreign bodies, dryness or skin conditions.
  • Nails checked and clipped to avoid any corkscrew curling.
  • Ears are checked for any inflammation or signs of infection and excess hair or debris are removed.
  • The teeth are checked for tartar build up and gums for signs of inflammation.
  • Your pet’s coat is inspected also to ensure its shiny and healthy and not lacking lustre.
  • Lastly the underpads are examined for clumps of matted hair and dirt that entwine together to form hard stones causing extreme discomfort for your pet.

Clipped

A short and tidy trim which involves taking the entire coat tight using a clippers.  This trim allows for easy maintenance and suitable for dog’s with an active lifestyle outdoors.

Clip And Scissor

This trim is cute and fluffy and is commonly referred to as ‘The Teddy Bear trim’. It suits most small breeds and cross breeds. The body of the dog is clipped using various blade lengths and the legs are scissored. This style is very popular.

Scissored

This trim involves scissoring the entire dog by hand and is more specialised. It leaves the ultimate finish on the coat. It can enhance and accentuate their shape.

De-Shedding

Dogs shed at different times of the year and some shed more than others. Factors that affect the way a dog’s coat shed include genetics, diet, breed, season, and the frequency of removing the undercoat.
