About Us




**  CORONA VIRUS – BUSINESS UPDATE – We have returned to work from Saturday 16th May, but are doing so one groomer at a time until we get all our PPE and new procedures embedded.  It will be a few weeks or possibly longer before we are back up to full capacity.  All appointments that were booked before the lockdown are cancelled in our diary, and we are trying to call customers that had appointments from 23rd March 2020 to rebook them, but this is very time-consuming.   If you have an urgent “welfare” issue, then please email, and we will do what we can to assist.  We hope that you and your families remain safe and well, and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.  In the meantime, please be patient with us as we try to accommodate a massive backlog of grooming.   **
