Prices

A personal consultation is done before the grooming starts – this gives us chance to discuss your requirements, size of your dog, grooming history, coat condition and any medical requirements.  As a guide below is a list of the starting prices, the final price will be confirmed after your dog has been assessed.

If after booking you find you need to postpone or cancel, please give at least 48hrs notice to allow for re-scheduling, thank you.

All prices are listed as a guide only, based on dogs with an even temperament, size, coat type, length of groom and are regularly groomed at home in-between professional grooms – exact price to be confirmed after assessment and before you collect your dog.

 

BOOKING: Please do NOT book or keep an appointment if you have or are showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19.

FLEAS: Please do NOT book or bring your dog if they have FLEAS. I will not be able to groom your dog if there is evidence of fleas. You will be contacted to collect your dog straight away to allow time to deep clean and fumigate the premises and all equipment before another dog can be allowed to the groom room. In this instance you will be charged the full price of the groom at collection and before re-booking.

BEHAVIOUR:  PawBliss Dog Grooming reserves the right to refuse to groom aggressive or difficult dogs with behavioural problems.  Customers must agree to advise if their dog is known to be aggressive or bitten anyone and understand they will be legally liable for the consequences of all bites caused by their dog.  Should your dog display aggression or behavioural problems during the groom you will be contacted to collect your dog straight away and charged the full price of the groom at collection.

APPOINTMENT: Please arrive for your appointment and return to collect your dog at the specified time. PawBliss Dog Grooming – Ainsworth works to a strict time frame to ensure that your dog receives ample grooming time and one-to-one care.  We expect to admit you at your given appointment time, if you are early we may not be able to grant immediate access and would ask that you wait until your allocated time. If you are 15 minutes late arriving for your appointment we will refuse your groom on welfare grounds as rushing the groom may lead to unnecessary stress and possible injury.  It can also cause inconvenience to other customers who have to wait or rearrange their appointment.  Therefore if you arrive late you will need to make an alternative appointment and a fee equal to the cost of the missed groom will be incurred **see heading ‘DROP OFF’ below.  If you are 15 minutes late collecting your dog a ‘late pickup’ fee will be incurred **see heading ‘PICK UP’ below

CANCELLATIONS and NO SHOWS: If you need to make changes to or cancel your appointment please give at least 48hrs notice. If less than 48hrs or you fail to turn up (NO SHOW) you will be charged the full price of the groom before re-booking. 

DROP OFF: Please arrive for your appointment at the correct time. Late DROP OFF of 15 minutes or more, the groom will be CANCELLED as I will not have the time to complete the groom before the next customer’s appointment.  You will be charged the full price of the groom before re-booking.

PICK UP: Contact will be made with you 20 mins before your dog is ready and the amount due advised. You will be required to return within that time to allow time to deep clean and sanitise the groom room and all equipment before the next dog is due to arrive.  ‘late pickup’ fee of £5 extra for each 15 minutes or part thereof is charged after the pickup time is reached.

MATTED COATS: Customers of dogs requiring extra work to de-mat and/or clip-off due to matting, knots and poor coat condition will be contacted and advised accordingly. Text messages sent when the de-mat process starts and finishes and a de-mat fee charged on top of the groom price of £15 per 30mins or part thereof.
Matting causes discomfort, pain and skin irritation to your dog as it tightens and pulls at the skin, in severe cases can also cut off circulation to your dog’s skin and cause hematomas.  The de-mat process adds additional time before the full groom can start as great care is required to remove all mats/knots gently and safely. Your dog may also need several rest periods as removing mats can be a difficult and potentially painful groom. It is important customers give accurate details of their dog’s coat condition when booking so an extended appointment can be anticipated.  Failure to do so may result in your appointment time running out and you having to book another session to finish the groom.  This process also causes excessive wear and tear to the grooming equipment which is costly to repair and/or replace.

FAECES: Customers bringing dogs that have faeces stuck on or around their bottom will be charged an extra fee on top of the quoted groom price from £5.

Not cleaning faeces away causes discomfort and possible sores to your dog. It is also unhygienic for you and your groomer, requires additional cleaning and disinfecting before the groom can continue and is not part of the grooming process.
