Dog Grooming FAQ

Is professional dog grooming affordable?

The amount of dog grooming needed will differ between breeds and individuals, the price of grooming will vary dependant on this. It is important to research what grooming needs your dog has and make sure it fits in with your budget and lifestyle.

A large breed full groom is equivalent to getting a takeaway coffee every working day for only six weeks. Not much for a squeaky clean, comfortable and fabulous looking pooch!

What are the benefits of getting my dog groomed?

Dog grooming is about more than having a clean lovely smelling pooch, although this is certainly a huge benefit! By getting your dog groomed regularly you can maintain your pet’s specific coat type, and this presents an opportunity to check their fur and skin for any issues. Plus of course a regular pamper will give your dog neatly trimmed nails, clean ears, no hair hanging in eyes and get rid of all that pesky shed.

When dropping your dog off at Dogwood, you have an opportunity to speak to a trained professional and ask any questions you may have. The Dogwood team can also teach you how best to maintain your pet’s coat between grooms. Pets Corner also stock the same natural organic shampoo used in the salons, so you can keep them smelling lovely until their next visit!

Do Dogwood use eco-friendly grooming products?

Dogwood are an eco-friendly dog and cat salon that specialises in using natural, gentle and sustainably sourced products. Not only do they use the best quality, the organic shampoos and sprays are made right here in the UK.

Dogwood eco salons pride themselves in using naturally derived and sustainably sourced shampoos and sprays made in the UK but also eco-friendly cleaning products throughout its stores behind the scenes.

What treatments do Dogwood offer and which is the best for my dog?

The trained Dogwood professional groomer in each salon will be able to assess your dog’s coat and condition, and can discuss with you as to what will work with your preferences and lifestyle.

Every dog is different, but we will be sure to find a groom and cut that suits. We offer a vast range of treatments and packages personalised to your dogs needs, indluding the following services.

How easy is it to maintain a dog Dogwood salon groom?

A professional Dogwood groomer will often groom a dog based around their lifestyle. Every dog is very different, and we will always tailor to both the dog and owner. Following a discussion about maintenance, previous grooming experience (if applicable) and how the coat is upkept at home, the groomer can make sure that the dogs grooming style is manageable around your lifestyle.

Those dogs that LOVE jumping into water and running through muddy woods will often be given a shorter cut to stop dirt sticking to the coat and to keep them dry. Those dogs that prefer to stick to path not the muddy track and those owners that have time to brush daily will generally be given a longer coat.

With every visit, the customer can relay how their experience has been with the current style and their preferences and adjustments can be made accordingly.
