Help your dog maintain a healthy coat and skin with regular grooming. I offer hand stripping, scissoring, clipping, seasonal de-shedding breed specific pet trims, coat rescue and wash and dry services for short haired dogs.
Your pet lives in your environment and can also suffer from exposure to the elements, stress with the daily toil of life and strains and sprains at the park or beach. Celebrate their birthday or a special occasion by treating them to a relaxing aromatherapy sponge wash, skin detoxing and de-shedding mud treatment, paw treatment for dry and cracked paws or a Reiki session.
I spoke to Louise about grooming my rescue dog Teddy who is still extremely nervous when being handled, but has a very thick coat that needed a professional groom. Louise spent the first 30 mins just talking & petting Teddy to get him as calm as possible and used a body bandage technique to make him feel more secure. This method worked! and Teddy even had a bath!! He looked fantastic after and is now much more comfortable for the summer. I can now feel relieved that Teddy will be able to be groomed with the minimum stress to him. I will however only be visiting Louise at Sooty Paws for his future treatments....
Grooming plays a vital part in looking after your pets health and wellbeing and is also very important in detecting early signs of parasite infections and disease. Groomers are not allowed to diagnose but can suggest you see a vet if any irregularities are noticed in your pets presentation.
Hello, my name is Louise and I am the owner of Sooty Paws dog grooming and spa salon based in Slapton, South Hams, Devon.
You can be assured that your pet is in safe hands as I hold a City and Guild Level 2 & 3 qualification in dog grooming, qualifying in November 2015, regularly attend industry training events to keep up-to-date, Pet First Aid trained and am currently studying for the level 3 diploma. I have operated my salon since April 2016 and please take a look at some of my work in the grooming gallery. I am also a member of PIFA (Pet Industry Federation Association, a Reiki second degree USUI system Therapist and am fully insured.
I also live with my own lovely cockapoo who I adore but who also keeps me very busy on the grooming front so all Doodle owners I do understand your grooming challenges and over the years have had the pleasure of living with 2 Persian cats, 4 hamsters, 3 guinea pigs and several goldfish although the later was difficult to groom!
