Bath - How about a freshen up to get rid of those doggy smells! Doggy Dooz offers all types of washes. Black, white, de-tangling, deep conditioning, sensitive, medicated and aromatherapy shampoos to name a few. Please ask our qualified staff for assistance in choosing your shampoo. As well as our fabulous shampoos, Doggy Dooz will eliminate unwanted dead coat with a range of professional tools and techniques.
Bath and Tidy - Need a little more than a freshen up and de-shed? A bath and tidy maybe just what your dogs needs. Your dog's nails will be trimmed, hair groomed, ears cleaned, sanitary areas clipped as well as a tidy on the face. This service is great as an in-between maintenance service.
Full clip - Doggy Dooz qualified and experienced staff are here to make your dog's groom enjoyable and stylish. Each dog is examined to ensure we can offer exactly what you are looking for. Hair condition permitting, we aim to please both Pooch and Owner.
Doggy Dooz will never put the dollar before the dog. Painful groom-outs are not an option for dogs with deep matting. Please talk to our staff to ensure your dog is on the right grooming regime.

WHAT IS A BATH AND TIDY?
Not quite a full groom, a bath and tidy (or B+T as we call them) is great for between grooms, in the Winter, if you like your doggy in a longer cut, or if you’ve got a special occasion coming up and you need to look glammin’. After a big brush out, lovely wash in premium ProGroom shampoo, pooch is dried carefully and all the ‘extras’ areas are tidied. Groomers trim the face, do the pads and nails, hygiene areas and under arms. No length is taken off the body. Huzzah! Fabulous, check.
WHAT IS A PET TRIM?
Quite simply, a pet trim is any wash, dry and groom that is not a Breed Specific / Traditional clip. Doggy is brushed out, washed in premium ProGroom shampoo, dried and then trimmed all over to your desired length and face styled to maximise cuteness (or cuteness and practicality!)
WHAT IS A TRADITIONAL / BREED SPECIFIC CLIP?
If you’ve seen Best in Show then you’ve seen those dogs getting around the show ring looking absolutely smashing – and matching to boot! All the Schnauzers have the same haircut, all the Westies, Yorkies, etc. All purebred dogs have their own specific set of rules to ensure the haircut is of breed specific standard. Doggy Dooz groomers are all fully trained and can provide a Traditional or Breed Specific clip to any breed you desire.
WHAT IS A TRADITIONAL / BREED SEPCIFIC CLIP FOR AN OODLE?
Well spotted! Of course, there is no traditional clip for an oodle as they are not recognized or pure-bred dogs. We can however make your oodle super cute with scissoring and / or the use of extension combs to keep the fluffiness and teddy-bear factor. This is a skill we charge for like a traditional clip on a pure-bred dog.
WHAT DOES A BATH MEAN FOR A DOUBLE OR COMBINATION COATED DOG?
For shorter double coats (ie your Cattle Dogs, Corgies etc): Dog is bathed in warm water and washed (and conditioned if necessary) with premium brand de-shedding shampoo. Once the dog is dried (using our high velocity dryers to reduce drying time and blow out any of that extra coat) the smooth coated dog is brushed and furminated, its nails clipped and the owner called to collect. For longer double coats (ie Samoyeds and Shelties): As for the shorter coats, but add in lots more time for brushing out, and extra time to trim those pads as well as clip the nails. We can tidy any feathering for you, trim around the feet and shave hygiene areas too.
WHAT DOES A BATH MEAN FOR A SHORT, SMOOTH COATED DOG?
Dog is bathed in warm water and washed (and conditioned if necessary) with premium brand ProGroom Shampoo. Once the dog is dried (using our high velocity dryers to reduce drying time) the smooth coated dog is furminated and brushed, its nails clipped and the owner called to collect.
WHY IS THERE SUCH A PRICE RANGE FOR INDIVIDUAL BREEDS AND CLIPS?
Grooming is complicated! To try to simplify, we quote a range of prices for an individual breed to cover:
SIZES: There’s always a variation, especially in oodles. Some cavoodles are the size of a toy poodle, others are getting into Spoodle size territory! A larger dog requires more product, drying time, and grooming time, therefore a higher price is charged.
TEMPERAMENTS: Not all dogs like being groomed. And that is fair enough! Difficult dogs do require more time, skill and quite often more staff to manage the groom. All of these things need to be charged for.
COAT CONDITION: A matted dog will be in pain. Doggy Dooz will never put the dollar before the dog and a heavily matted coat will never be brushed out, only shaved. Clipping and scissoring through mats requires skill and takes a toll on groomers’ tools, therefore a charge is incurred.
WHY WAS I CHARGED A DIFFERENT PRICE LAST TIME?
Dogs are individuals and the groomers will price according to how they present on the day – taking into consideration all those things above. SIZE – was the dog a puppy last visit and has grown? TEMPERAMENT – Was the dog having a bad day last visit but today was positively angelic? Is the dog getting on into senior years and requires extra nurturing, care and time? COAT CONDITION – Last visit the coat was matted, this visit it was in great condition, etc. Also, generally every financial year as wages and consumables and rent and utilities bills increase, we will increase our prices.
