Posh Pets offers a cat grooming service.
Riverview puppy grooming service
We also offer a puppy grooming service. Just make sure your puppy has all his/her vaccinations first, and then they are very welcome to the salon, where they can be introduced to Susan and the salon environment for the first time.
Puppies aged between 4months up to 7months are classed as puppies at Posh Pets.
It’s recommended that your puppy is introduced to salon grooming as soon as possible, especially the breeds that have a high maintained coat.
Such as poodles, Shih Tzu’s, westies and double coated breeds such as Samoyeds, Japanese spitz and not forgetting the breeds that do not naturally moult and require regular grooming at home and professionally in a salon. Breeds like the Tibetan terrier and the soft coated wheaten terrier, Bichon Frise’and of course all the poodles.
Susan’s kind and gentle nature will help introduce your puppy into the grooming salon and show him or her and you what will be required once they get into the grooming routine. With Susan’s expertise and vast canine knowledge she will gladly help and advise you on what the best grooming options for your puppy and recommended a suitable and affordable grooming schedule that suits you.
Puppies need gentle handling and reassurance when they first come to the salon. The first visit is always free. They will be carefully placed on the grooming table, and gently brushed with a soft brush, the whole time Susan will be talking to them and praising them to build up their confidence for the next time.
Puppies can be bathed and their ears can be plucked and cleaned if necessary, the nails usually need a trim. And some breeds may require the hair trimmed away from their eyes and hygiene areas to keep them clean.
