"I want to thank you for everything you have done for us and Lottie this year. Lottie has come on so much from the timid pup she was when we first met earlier in the year to the confident, full-of-life dog she is now. You have been so good for her and brought her on so much. Hopefully Lottie can see you in January for a day care session."

Professional dog grooming offers a range of benefits for both your dog's physical well-being and their overall quality of life.


Regular grooming helps maintain a healthy coat by removing dirt, debris and dead hair that can lead to matting and skin issues. Groomers often use specialised shampoos and conditioners that promote skin health and keep the coat clean and shiny.

Professional groomers are trained to identify potential health issues such as skin infections, parasites, lumps or growths. Regular grooming appointments can help catch these issues early, allowing for prompt veterinary care.

Using home boarding for your dog can have several advantages compared to other pet care options like traditional boarding kennels or relying on friends or family to watch your dog.

Home boarding typically involves fewer dogs than a traditional kennel environment, which means your dog can receive more personalised attention and care. This is especially beneficial if your dog has special considerations, any medical requirements or simply thrives on more one-on-one interaction. We offer a small home boarding environment where boarding dogs integrate with our own animals and settle into a routine based around our family living space.


Interacting with other dogs can help improve your dog's social skills and behaviour around other animals. Well-socialised dogs are generally more comfortable and confident in various environments.

Playtime with other dogs provides physical exercise and mental stimulation. Engaging in playful interactions can help burn off excess energy and prevent boredom.

Dogs are social animals by nature. Positive interactions with other dogs can provide companionship and reduce feelings of loneliness or anxiety, especially when you're not around.
