1-2-1 Masterclass – Learn How To Groom Your Dog In 1 Day
For all of those “hands-on parents” of dogs, we provide 1 to 2-, or small groups, lessons in our state of the art salon, where we teach you best practice on how to look after, maintain, and groom your dog’s coat.
We start off by teaching you how to bathe your dog – this is the foundation of what makes the groom look great but also makes it gentle for your dog during the grooming process – minimising tugging, pulling and hurting your dogs skin due to matts & tangles.
We use organic shampoos and conditioners, if your dog has sensitive skin or has allergies we have a special organic range of hypo allergenic treatments.
The next stage is to blow dry your dog’s coat; we will show you how to do it efficiently and effectively, without a fully dry coat, tangles and mats will live on under the coat making it impossible to clip and painful for your dog.
The “brushing out” stage follows from here – this is where the coat is brushed out ensuring there are no mats or tangles left – seeing the hair go from curly to straight leaving a beautiful knot-free coat for the grooming to take place.
From here the grooming process begins – this includes full body clipping, scissoring, nail trimming, ears cleaned, hygiene area trimmed and under the pads cleaned & clipped.
By the end of the day spent with us you will be fully competent to groom your dog – you will leave our salon confident with using clippers and scissors and will know how to brush and bathe your dog regularly.
1-2-1 Masterclass Follow-Up Session
If after having attended our “Learn How to Groom Your Dog” Masterclass you would like to perfect certain aspects of the grooming process, we provide a follow up session. You may need help with brushing, de-matting, or extra time spent on body clipping getting the cut just how you want it to look.
Whatever your need, we use this follow up session to focus on specific points based on your confidence and what area you would like to improve on. We can provide this follow up session on a 1-2-1 basis or as a small group.
