Puppy intro grooms

We love a puppy! Who doesn’t?

Here at Gillsmans we love a puppy! Who doesn’t? But they must have a good first experience to the world of grooming. Getting used to the sounds, smells and sensations takes time but an early start is essential. They can visit the groomers as early as 4 months old or once they have had all their vaccinations.

Insuring your puppy is groomed regularly at an early age will help them become better behaved in adult life.

FREE puppy grooming for every new puppy on their first visit, plus a free puppy pack.

Different shampoos designed for different skin and coat types.

We use a top of the range bathing system that correctly mixes the shampoos and the hose penetrates down to the dog’s skin. We use a range of different shampoos designed for different skin and coat types. We have shampoos for sensitive skin, brightening shampoos for lighter/whiter dogs, shampoos for the

really dirty dogs that like long walks on the beach, as well as medicated and pesticide treatments.

All dogs receive a blueberry facial which is kind to eyes and leaves the face refreshed.

Our dryers are top of the range. We use a variety of dryers from mega blasters to fluff drying finishing dryers – all suited for your dog’s needs.

De-shedding treatments

With up to 80% less shedding, it really shows results.

If you have a smooth coated or double coated breed and are forever hoovering, this is the treatment for your dog! With up to 80% less shedding, it really shows results. Smooth/short coated breeds such as Labradors, Jack Russells, Pugs, Bull dogs and Staffordshire ball terriers, as well as double coated breeds such as GSD, Huskies, Collies and many more can benefit from this treatment.

Specialised technique that removes coat from wire haired terriers and silky coated breeds.

This is a specialised technique that removes coat from wire haired terriers and silky coated breeds. It is very time consuming and involves great skill to achieve the right finish. Hand stripping will keep a good harsh texture and rich natural colour to your dog’s coat. If clipped, it will dull and soften the coat. We charge an hourly rate of £20 for this service so price is per breed.

Clipping/scissoring/styling

We always listen to your requests & advise you on the best style for your pooch.

We will always listen to your requests & advise you on the best style for your pooch. We will advise on home maintenance and how often your dog needs grooming at a professional salon. You can have a practical pet trim for dogs that enjoy muddy walks or strolls along the beach or a breed standard trim. We always listen to your requests. Knotted & matted dogs will be assessed and if we feel your dog warrants a shave down, our shave down policy will be issued, signed and dated and a fee added to your grooming bill.

Eye treatments and cleaning can be requested as an extra on top of your grooming session.

Ears will be assessed during our health check and if they have any sign of infection we will not touch the ears and advise that you seek veterinary advice. Only dogs that warrant ear plucking will be done as requested by owners.

This is not included within a grooming session and therefore incurs an additional fee. Eye treatments and cleaning can be requested as an extra on top of your grooming session. Blueberry facials are part of a grooming session. They brighten the eye area, especially on lighter coloured and tear staining coats.
