Two Dogs of the Month at The Groom Room

What these two lovely dogs have in common is that they had both previously had a less than wonderful experience at a groomers. So... it was our pledge that their second ever groom would be a pleasurable pamper - and so it was!

On the left we have a fabulous Irish Setter who had become a little over grown and ragged around the edges. A good brush, de-mat and bath, followed by tasteful trimming transformed him in to "red royalty"! On the right is a big ball of cuddles, otherwise recognised as a Chow Chow. He always has a thick, fluffy coat, but he had a bit too much of it when he arrived, so all the dead undercoat was brushed out. He then had a "dream shower" which massages as it cleans... mmmn! And finished with a little trimming and nail file. How cute is he?!

BeforeAfter After

The Ultimate Bathing Pamper!

When we tell our customers about the heavenly treatments their dogs receive, many wish it were they who were booked in for the spa treatment instead of Fido!

We have a "Dream Shower" which gives your dog a full body massage as first the shampoo and then the conditioner is worked in to their coat... Ooooh!

This little dog in the picture happens to have ultra sensitive ears which react badly to water - not a problem at The Groom Room where every individual requirement is catered for. We always look after your dogs particular needs; after all isn't that what you would hope for when you entrust your special family member to a professional? Grooming shouldn't just be about fabulous styling, it surely has to be a happy and relaxing experience? We think so anyway.

Does Your Dog Suffer Travel Sickness?

Unless your dogs travel regularly in the car they will probably suffer motion sickness. Over time this builds up a dread of the car and a feeling of sickness in anticipation of a journey. So what can you do to reverse this?

  1. You need to build up positive associations with the part of the car your dog travels in. With the car stationary and the engine off, give your dogs treats and cuddles in the car, feed them in the car, anything your dog enjoys is great. You can then progress to the same but with the engine running. Gradually start very short journeys and remember to drive thoughtfully! Take corners slowly, avoid the need for last minute sharp breaking, and avoid routes with speed bumps.
  2. Think about where in the car your dog travels? Safety is paramount, but the further forward in the car, the less motion the dog will experience.
  3. Spray the area of the car where your dog sits with DAP spray, available from your vet - it really works!
  4. Ask your vet about anti-sickness tablets too, like the ones we take before taking a journey at sea.
  5. New Puppy? Introduce him to the car as soon as he arrives and take him on short journeys every day if possible. For example if you have a little crate he can do the school run 5 days a week for starters!

You'll be amazed at what you can achieve, and how nice is it to have a happy canine passenger... and no sickness - Result!
