Frequency of grooming visits will depend on the breed of dog and your choice of styling for your pet but the following will give you a rough guide:

  • Curly coated breeds such as Poodles and Bichons will benefit from regular visits every 6 to 8 weeks.

  • Harsh or wiry coated breeds such as West Highland, Scottish, Wire Fox, Airedale and Welsh Terriers, Schnauzers and Deerhounds, every 10 to 12 weeks.

  • Long silky breeds such as Yorkshire and Maltese Terriers, Lhasa Apsos, Shih Tzus, Afghan Hounds, Spaniels and Setters can vary between 8 and 12 weeks dependent largely on what degree of care is given by their owners between grooming visits.

  • Short coated breeds such as Dachshunds, Corgis, Pointers and Labradors will normally benefit from a twice yearly visit for removal of dead coat and a tidying up and treatment of face, ears, nails, hygiene areas and paws.

  • Double coated breeds such as the New Foundland, Great Pyrenees, Husky, St.Bernard, Collies and Sheepdogs, between 2 and 3 visits per year dependent on individual coats and between-visit coat care. Any dogs regularly working outdoors or those who enjoy a particularly active and muddy lifestyle may of course require more regular washing and attention to ears, feet and paws.
