Holistic Dog Grooming

I got the opportunity to change my career in 2019.  I decided that I wanted my new career to be with dogs.  I have always loved dogs; I am that crazy dog lady who speaks to all the dogs!  

My back garden and home belongs to your dog to have fun and be stress-free.  The garden hosts a specially designed lodge in a fully enclosed garden, where your dog will be groomed.  But dogs don’t like being groomed …

Dogs get stressed when being groomed and some react to that more than others.  During my training and beyond, I didn’t like to force dogs to do something that made them stressed.  I don’t like being forced to do things.  I found myself starting my new career and very quickly became stressed and anxious myself.  After much research, I now take a holistic approach to dog grooming.  That means, I use cruelty-free, natural dog grooming products, I have a stress free environment by using essential oils and calming music when grooming which benefits both me and the dogs that come in.  I also use force free grooming methods to keep dogs calm and stress free.

I have recently started studying a course on Low Stress Handling that was devised by Dr Sophia Yin, who believes we can interact with animals without using force.

Following holistic grooming means I do not use crates in the lodge.  The garden and my home is my “crate”.

When grooming, we have regular breaks for play and treats!

I may even give dog-parents some homework!

I believe I offer a huge amount of flexibility in terms of drop off and collection.  You may need to drop your dog off early or not be able to collect in the 15 minute timeframe – no problem – just let me know and if I can accommodate, I will.

I groom on a 1-2-1 basis and put aside enough time so as not to rush appointments and cause stress to either the dog or myself.  Dogs have a great sense of feelings so if I’m stressed, the dog will pick up on it and get stressed themselves.  And they don’t know why they are stressing!

Due to my grooming style, dogs who are anxious about going to a salon, are welcome and may even enjoy the experience!

Tear Staining

I get asked a lot what I can do to remove the staining around dogs eyes, caused from the dogs tears. There is no simple way. There are shampoos that will help but this is obviously only a temporary measure because the dog will naturally start to stain in that area...
