Specialist Golden Retriever Grooming

In response to Client requests we provide a specialist grooming service for Golden Retrievers.   As experienced Exhibitors & Breeders we are specialists in trimming & grooming the breed to breed standard. Whether for the showring or to keep your pet Golden in tip top condition, we are able to assist you.  We can bath & dry, trim nails, clean ears or give your dog’s coat a tidy up or full trim.  We can of course do the “full works”.

Keeping your Golden Retriever well groomed can help to reduce day to day maintenance & prevent tangles, knots & excess dirt being brought into the house on the dogs coat & feet.  Regular grooming can also help prevent foot infections & hotspots on the body.

We will never use clippers on your dogs coat.  A Golden Retriever has a double coat which is designed to insulate your dog against both the cold & heat & the use of clippers will damage the insulating properties of the coat.

We are also experts in handling the breed & know & understand the breeds character & how to work with them to make the groom as pleasurable & stress free for them as possible.

We are happy to provide a trimming service without the full groom however dogs must have a clean coat in order that we can trim the dog correctly & to maintain the sharpness of our scissors.  We reserve the right to refuse to trim the dog if the coat is not clean or to bath & dry prior to trimming (full groom will be charged).  Please also not that trimming alone will not remove dead coat & a bath/blast is required to do this.
