At DogzBody Spa, we endeavour to make every grooming appointment a positive experience for every dog. Fran is an experienced professional, achieving an Open College Network level 3 Diploma in dog grooming. She has attended many canine-related seminars (in fields such as Canine First Aid, Understanding Canine Body Language and Beginners TTouch) and is an official therapy dog assessor for Canine Concern. She is also a certified Fear Free Practitioner - striving to reduce any stress and anxiety sometimes associated with the dog grooming process. The salon is crate-free. Instead we have a 'chill-out' room where your dog can relax pre and post appointment with brain games and a comfy bed. They may even choose to have a break during the grooming process. Fran will be observing closely at all times to make sure that breaks are taken when necessary.
DogzBody Spa is a dog grooming salon...with a difference. We offer a bespoke service based on each individual dog's needs. Using human-grade treatments, our shampoos, conditioners and colognes are all selected for being cruelty-free, natural products. Our experienced and qualified (level 3 diploma) groomer incorporates knowledge of canine body language and behaviour to create an unique grooming plan for each individual dog. Every new customer is invited for a 'meet and treat' session at the salon. The goal of this visit is for the dog to associate good things (treats and attention) with our grooming salon, which will ultimately make for less stressful appointments in the future. We will also take the time to discuss your dog's individual needs, along with a coat assessment and styling options. This allows us to tailor-make your dog's appointments depending on their physical and emotional needs. *All pricing given below are FROM prices. Full pricing given during our free 'meet and treat' visit. *Price based on your dogs coat being in reasonable condition, matted dogs require more work so will incur extra charges.

During this, we allow the dog to investigate the salon and enjoy treats - this is so that they associate only good things with coming to visit us. We will also create a client record including important information (such as vaccination records, medical issues etc) and discuss any previous experiences of grooming. Finally, we will assess the coat and talk through styling options. Pricing/services will be confirmed, along with payment of a 50% deposit. This visit is optional for bath-only breeds.
