Our Deluxe Mobile Grooming Service

Mobile grooming takes the pressure off pet owners by providing a service that saves valuable time. The deluxe mobile salon comes to your home or work place which means you don't have to spend time travelling to and from the grooming salon.

The deluxe mobile salon is fitted with the latest state of the art grooming equipment which will leave your dog looking and smelling great. The warm water hydro bath system penetrates through all the dirt and gently massages, promoting healthy coat and skin. The turbo dryer removes further dirt and dead shedding hair and helps untangle any big knots. The deluxe mobile salon also carries all the usual tools such as clippers, scissors, brushes and combs.

Some dogs find the hustle and bustle of the salon environment a tense experience and therefore the quiet and calm environment of the mobile salon on your door step is the perfect solution.

Advantages for your dog:

  • They don't become as stressed
  • They are outside their own home
  • They know you are near by
  • They do not spend any time in cages
  • There are no other dogs to deal with
  • They receive a personal one to one service
  • They develop a trusting relationship with their groomer

The Deluxe Mobile Salon is a stand alone conversion and is a completely self contained, self powered salon. All we need from you is somewhere to park!

Our Grooming Salon

The grooming Salon will allow pet owners to leave their dogs at the salon where if possible their dog can take advantage of the day care centre whilst waiting to be groomed. If this isn't appropriate your dog will have a quiet area to wait before and after the groom. The salon will be spacious and squeaky clean and come fully equipped with the latest grooming tools and equipment. We will have electric warm water baths and tables to ensure your dog is handled safely and carefully. Turbo dryers will be used to remove lots of dead shedding hair, reducing the amount of hair in your home. Finally finishing dryers will be used to create a wonderful finish and style. We will have all the tools and equipment needed to carry out any styling requirement you desire. The salon will be a friendly environment where your pooch is pampered from nose to paw by qualified stylists.

Styling Preference

Before any grooming takes place a detailed consultation will be carried out to establish the exact needs of both you and your pet ensuring complete customer satisfaction. We will discuss the kind of groom you want, any styling preference, what the breed standard is and what we can achieve given the condition of the coat, temperament and health of the dog.

The welfare of your pet is of utmost importance to us and so all pets will receive a health check and any concerns will be highlighted to you. We are not medical professionals but we will do our best to highlight any funny lumps and bumps so you can take the necessary advice from your vet.

Please take the time to read our terms and conditions as you will be asked to sign and agree to these during your first consultation.

Puppy Grooms

It is essential that your puppy is introduced to the grooming experience at around 12 weeks old. This is a crucial part in the development, growth and socialisation of your puppy. The socialisation and acceptance window in puppy development closes at the 16-20 weeks stage therefore introducing your puppy to grooming before this window closes will ensure a happy puppy, happy groomer and a happy owner.

Pawsome Dogs offers a three step approach that gradually builds the puppy’s self-confidence which ensures grooming will be accepted as part of life and will be an enjoyable experience for the pup for the rest of their lives.

In order to qualify for the puppy package the three step approach must be booked before the puppy reach 16 weeks old.

Step 1 :

No actual grooming will take place on the first visit and this is a free of charge. The session will last 15 mins and the aim is to complete necessary paper work and introduce the puppy to the mobile salon. They have time to look, smell and move around alongside some play, treats and cuddles.

Step 2 :

The second visit will be within one week after step one and will cost from £25 depending on breed. The session will be no longer than 45 minutes. This will be when the puppy will receive a wash and dry. We will not force the puppy to do anything the pup does not want to. At this point there will be an introduction to equipment we plan to use in future grooms. Sometimes it may be necessary to repeat step two before moving on to step three to ensure the puppy is completely relaxed and willing to be groomed.

Ideally the puppy should have experienced steps one and two prior to the age of 16 weeks.

Step 3 :

The third visit will ideally be two weeks after step two between 16-20 weeks and the price will be 75% of the full charge for the specific breed. The session will last between 1 - 1½ hours and the puppy gets a full groom. Again we won’t force the puppy to do anything the pup doesn’t want to.

This three step approach ensures we put the puppy welfare first and they learn and understand that grooming is not dangerous or scary in any way. It may mean that the puppy isn’t completely dry, or we haven’t managed to trim all the nails, or perhaps the finishing touches or cut are not as neat and tidy as we would like but we will explain this to you and the reasons why at the end of each session. We are also happy offer advice on what you can be doing at home to continue the training and de-sensitisation to allow for an enjoyable grooming experience.

Micro Chipping

Did you know in order to reduce the number of lost, stray and stolen dogs the government have now made it a legal requirement to microchip every dog in the UK. The microchips will be coded with owners' details, and owners who do not comply could face fines of up to £500.

We can chip your dog in a matter of seconds giving you the owner instant protection, security and peace of mind. If you ever lose your pet, having them registered gives you the best chance of finding them. Once chipped you have the ability to instantly flag your pet as lost/stolen through an online-account panel maximising your chances of finding your beloved pet.
