Mini Grooming Process:
Careful brush and comb out. Check for skin abrasions, bumps or any unusual skin conditions prior to the washing process. De-matting is done at this time if necessary.
Lucy’s grooming regime includes your dog being washed in a temperature controlled, refreshing, hygenic hand-held shower system with a therapeutic cleansing massage. There is a minimum of two shampoo sessions. (We don’t do a bath or hydro-bath as we believe only clean water touching your dog is the most hygenic).
Your dog is then towel dried, combed through, then dried using a hand held drying process (we don’t cage dry here).
In our cutting/clipping room, we tidy your dogs, face, feet and sanitary areas with the assistance of another handler (we don’t use nooses here).
We use a medicated shampoo (or you are welcome to bring your dogs own prescribed shampoo) and conditioner. A flea shampoo and veterinary purchased ear cleaning formula are available on request at no extra charge.
Brush out, wash & blow dry
Face, feet and sanitary areas are cut.
Nails are clipped
De-matting prices are additional and charged at $90/hour or part thereof (eg: 15 mins = $22.50). Due to the additional time it takes and for the comfort of your dog, there is a staff to dog ratio of 2:1 during the de-matting process. De-matting a dog before proceeding with further grooming is essential. The de-matting process can be avoided with a good home grooming regime, please ask us how.
