So, why does it cost so much for a groom?
This is a question we are frequently asked so I thought I would break it all down on here.
What is included in a groom?
Full grooms consist of:
Bath using natural shampoo
Facial using a natural facial scrub
Hair removed from pads of paws
Natural wax applied to the paws
Ears cleaned + hair removed from the meatus if necessary
Hair cut to style using appropriate techniques
De-matting where necessary
A Bath and Tidy consists of all of the above minus the the hair cut but with the face, feet and tail tidied where necessary.
A Bath and Tidy starts from £10 and a Full Groom starts from £28. We also offer smaller services such as nail clipping, ear cleaning and sanitary trims which are all priced at £5. I compared these prices to those of the local beauty salon and hair dressers to where I live (out of town) and here are the results for comparison.
SERVICE CANNY CUTS HAIRDRESSERS BEAUTICIANS
FACIAL £5 N/A FROM £30
MANICURE £5 N/A FROM £18.50
PEDICURE MANI/PEDI IN ONE N/A FROM £20.50
BIKINI WAX £5 N/A FROM £8
BATH & TIDY/
SHAMPOO & SET FROM £10 FROM £13 N/A
BLOW DRY FROM £28 FROM £29 N/A
That means that if you were to have the human equivalent of a full groom, it would cost a staggering FROM £106!
