Grooming appointments are available between 8.30am and 2.00pm from Tuesday to Friday, and up to 1pm on Saturday.

The latest time you can collect your pet is 5.00pm.

Appointments are available at the following times:

Saturday: 9.00am, 9.30am, 10.00am, 12.00pm, 1.00pm

Our comprehensive pampering service usually takes about 3 hours, so your pet should be ready to be picked up about 3 hours after the appointment time. Hand-stripping, or full grooming of thick coated breeds such as Newfoundlands or Samoyeds may take a little longer! Don’t worry if the timing of these appointments doesn’t suit your daily schedule. You are welcome to drop off your pet any time before your appointment slot (from 8.30am) and collect any time up to 5.00pm. Pets left with us all day will be taken for short walks, offered water, and given food if you wish to provide some.
