Not all dogs are perfectly well behaved! – Not all dogs enjoy the grooming experience !
It may be their first visit, they may be nervous and anxious, they may be a rescue dog, they might have had a previous bad experience, they might not like clippers, the noise of dryers etc… None of these conditions are unusual, but they may have an impact and what we can do and how much time we need to allocate .
Our experience and training helps us work with these dogs and generally we can overcome their nervousness and resistance with kindness and patience. We will not cause a dog discomfort or place our staff at risk, just to complete the groom. In these circumstances we will stop the groom and call you to agree the way forward and any additional charges. We will always put the dogs well being first .
