Mark has a great way with dogs and he is particularly good at settling nervous dogs. The comfort and enjoyment of both the dog and owner are important priorities. He uses top quality products and makes every effort to ensure that each dog leaves feeling and

There are many benefits to grooming your dog. As well as aerating the coat and ensuring healthy growth, brushing promotes good blood circulation. Grooming helps to keep grease levels down - a build-up of grease in a dog’s coat can block pores and cause sebaceous cysts.
Most dogs live indoors and so moult more often than their outdoor counterparts, causing the loose hairs to become matted. If not brushed out regularly, they form into heavy wads which can drag the skin down, causing soreness and skin complaints.
Grooming is also the perfect opportunity for you to check your dog over to ensure he’s healthy. It is a chance too to check for any balls of matted fur between his paw pads, which can sometimes become hard with dirt and grease, causing discomfort.
And we mustn’t forget the feel-good element in a groom. It reduces stress in the dog and makes the owner proud and content as well. Ideally, start having your dog groomed when he’s a pup to get him used to the procedure.
