to Starbarks Dog Grooming, based near Braintree, Essex.
SPINONE & ALL TRADITIONALLY HAND STRIPPED BREEDS GROOMING
stripping is totally dependant on coat type. We will not strip
a dog whose coat is soft, this would be very uncomfortable for
them and not fair. If the coat is the correct texture we aim
to use finger and thumb only - no cheating with Furminators
or Coat Kings here!
To note: If we are hand stripping your dog we will not be bathing
him/her. This is because of the risk of causing post-grooming
furunculosis as stripping will open the pores. The dogs wellbeing
is our main priority here so there will be no exceptions.
Groomer of Crufts winning & Show Champion Italian Spinoni,
I am City & Guilds Level 3 Qualified (all breeds) with a distinction
and have passed my City & Guilds Hand Stripping Diploma.
note, for safety reasons, we cannot permit owners to stay with
their pets for the duration of their groom.
only offer one to one grooming, where your dog is with someone
at all times. No dogs are left unattended and your dog is only
with us for the duration of their groom ensuring no dog becomes
distressed stuck in a crate.
grooming is an important part of your dogs routine to maintain
its health and well being. While your dog is being groomed this
is a great opportunity to inspect your dog for any issues that
may be hiding in their coat i.e. lumps, bumps, ticks, mites,
grass seeds or skin problems that could be easily missed at
at Starbarks every dog is treated as if it's one of our own,
we like to get to know every dog to build up a trusting relationship
so each & every visit is a pleasurable one.
keep detailed records of all grooming sessions so we know your
dogs likes and dislikes and of course what style you like your
dog in. If you prefer longer or shorter on your next visit we
will then know exactly what you want.
