Poodle mix breeds

Cockapoo’s, Cavachon’s and including all the Poodle mix cross breeds. 

Working within guidelines of the groomers national average price range, prices start from £50 for Cockapoo’s. Depending on the style required and every dog is different!

Poodle mix breeds should start to be groomed from 4 months of age and will require grooming every 4 to 6, maybe 8 weeks depending on the style required. 
If twice a year grooming is what you have been told by your dog breeder. This will be a full shave off twice a year.
No dog with a thick wool coat can be expected to have a teddy bear style cut by just going to the groomers twice a year.

Shave off

The shave off or a really short cut is available.
It can be a manageable cut for some dog owners who ask for this every time, as it last for a while and makes dog grooming more affordable.       
For others there may be no choice but to shave off your dog and start again. Because for some breeds the coat when matted up can be like trying to groom a brillo pad. Those kind of knots will never come out by trying to de matt them. Shaving off the coat is much kinder to the dog.
Don’t worry I have seen it all before, these things happen. In some breeds you will be surprised how quickly the coat grows back. 
There are a few shave off videos I have made on my YouTube channel the most popular is the Working Cocker Spaniel video Monster matts >

De Matting

Heavily matted dogs will need to be clipped or shaved off. 
A few matts can be de matted and removed with the right de matting tools. But there will be an extra charge from £10 per dog if the de matting required takes longer than usual.
This will be discussed before your dog is groomed.

Hand Stripping

Unfortunately hand stripping is no longer available due to how time consuming it can be.  

grooming your dog for shows

Show dog grooming

I don’t take on anyone’s show dog for dog grooming on a continual basis. I’m happy to help any newcomer to the world of dog showing. But I am nobody’s personal dog groomer to their show dogs. 

Showing your dog

Part of the fun of showing dogs is learning over the years. All about your breed and how to present and handle your dog for the show ring.
I have a blog post with a video how to groom an English Setter > 
More dog grooming video’s coming soon to my YouTube channel 

Nail clipping

Nail cutting or cutting the dogs claws is included as standard in a full grooming appointment. You do not need to ask for your dogs nails to be cut it will be done if required. Also you will not be charged extra on the grooming bill for your dogs nails to be clipped as you will find this happens in the large franchise grooming salons more and more.

It should be common dog grooming practice or common sense for your dogs nails to be cut when he is groomed at a dog grooming salon appointment. You should not have to ask for it to be done and charged as ‘add on’ to your dog grooming bill. 

If you are looking ‘just’ for nail clipping for your dog this can be arranged 

Prices start from £10
