Duppies Dog Grooming

I am a qualified to Level 3, City and Guilds in Dog Grooming and have been grooming for nearly ten years. Grooming is my favourite pass time (apart from spending time with my husband of course). I run my business from a specialised Grooming Salon attached to my home which is light and airy with plenty of secure outdoor space. It is my passion to ensure that your four legged

family member is relaxed and enjoys the experience. I treat each dog like it is my own and will always discuss your requirements with you first. I base my business around the needs of your dog. Focussing on only one dog at at time. I do not use waiting cages and if you have more than one dog, then they are free to relax in one of several comfy beds or potter and play with toys as they see fit. Prices vary and are dependant on breed, size, coat type and length along with dog behaviour. I trim nails and clean ears as part of every groom and if you would like a**l glands emptying, please ask and I can do this at no extra charge. I take pride in my work and pay particular attention to your pets welfare at all times. I also hold a current 'First Aid for Pets' Certificate. I hope to see you soon!

Just a quick update. This is cast number two which will hopefully come off on the 25th September. I won’t be up to full speed with my grooming at that point and I may need to contact some of you to re-arrange appointments. I will keep you all posted on my progress. The good news is that I have managed to do some brushing today and a teeny bit of sc******ng 😊.

As some of you may already know, I broke both bones in my right wrist four weeks ago today. You can imagine, it has stopped me in my tracks and prevented me from working (amongst plenty of other simple tasks). I am lucky enough to have been sent a guardian angel in the form of Sophie Garner who has been covering almost three days a week of clients for me in my salon with me, let’s say, chatting away 😊. I even managed to one handed bath a few dogs this week. Sophie has been fantastic.

For those of you whose appointments fell on the days when Sophie was busy, I will fit you in as soon as I can. I have a weeks holiday from the 18th September to the 25th September and then, if my wrist allows, I am flat out for most of October in to November. I am hoping that my cast will be removed on Friday so that I can build up some movement and strength in it whilst I am away but I will have wait to see what my X-ray shows. Wish me luck…..

I want to thank all of you for your patience, understanding and kindness. I am one lucky lady to have you all as friends and clients.

It’s a long post I know and I am sorry about that but you know me and my talking 😀.

Take care and I will see you all soon. Big kisses to my doggy clients too xx

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and thank you for all my wonderful gifts. I have truly been spoilt.

After just a few days break I am back in the groom room and normal service has commenced 😊

As most of you already know, I have reluctantly had to increase my prices for 2023. Sadly I have no option as the cost of utilities and consumables has increased. It is the oil price that crucifies me mostly. I have tried to keep the increase as small as possible and in most cases prices will rise from between £2 and £4 depending on the size of your dog, it’s coat quality and how long it takes to groom (including bath and drying time).

I also want to remind everyone that on the rare occasions that appointments are missed, these will be charged at full price.

To end my message on a positive and to make you smile, here looking chilled is Rosie ❤️

Well, here we are at the end of another busy and eventful year. There has been ups and downs, happiness and sadness but there has always been dogs 😊

I want to thank all of my loyal customers, family and friends for supporting my little Business and putting your faith and trust in me.

The nights are getting lighter and I am looking forward to seeing what 2023 has to offer. Sending you all love and best wishes.

I rarely take photos of my handiwork these days but I couldn’t resist taking one of Sid Vicious. Actually her name is Missy. When she first came in I couldn’t put a brush near her without her biting me. Now I get kisses 😊

I thought I would share some really useful tips for home grooming between trips to your Groomer

🐶 Try not to brush a dry coat, Dogs coats actually damage more easily if they are brushed. Instead use some detangling or conditioning spray. Once you have brushed, go through the coat with a comb to check for knots or matts.

🐶 For breeds like Cockerpoos, Labradoodle and Bichons use the the line brushing technique to ensure you are brushing not just the top layer of coat but all the way down to the skin.
Start at the bottom of each leg, hold all the coat up and brush in small layers only bringing the next layer down once the previous is knot free and you can pass a comb down to the skin.

🐶 If your dog wears jumpers while out walking these can cause friction on the coat which creates matting so always completely brush out the coat after each walk.

🐶 Try not to bath your dog too often. If you bath or warm water rinse your dog after a muddy walk make sure that you pat dry rather than rubbing, then gently line brush the coat while it is still damp and again make sure you can comb down to the skin all over, especially areas like armpits and insides of legs.

🐶 Always use products designed for dogs and never human products as these have a different PH level to your dogs skin and can cause irritation.

Another year passes and another Christmas of being totallly spoilt by my clients. I might add that this arrangement of gifts is not everything. Some have already been drunk and eaten 😊

It has been a challenging couple of years for us all and I am blessed to have such loyal and wonderful clients.

Thank you to you all from the bottom of my heart and a very Happy New Year.

Hi all, I hope you are keeping well and safe.

I wanted to let you know my plans for reopening the salon following Boris’s announcement last week.

I plan to fully open from the 12th April and now taking bookings. For those of you who had appointments cancelled, I will be in touch over the next few days to re-book. Please be aware that I will be working on reduced hours and continuing in this way for the foreseeable future. I have thought long and hard about this and realise that it may mean you have to wait longer for an appointment or you may need to have a longer gap between regular grooms. As always will do my utmost to minimise disruption.

Thank you for your understanding and patience and I look forward to seeing you all in April - it’s been a long time coming.

Yours, Jayne x

As most of you are aware, Dog Groomers are only able to open for welfare cases or vets referrals. Regular grooming is not allowed. In addition to this there is the ‘stay at home’ requirement meaning only travel for necessity is allowed.

There has been a variety of interpretations of the meaning of the word ‘welfare’ and what is deemed a necessary journey with some groomers remaining open whilst others have closed.

Below is the most recent statement from the Pet Industry Federation following Boris’s announcement on Monday. Unfortunately is does not yet confirm when Dog Groomers are able to reopen.

For now, I will remain closed but if you do feel that your dog needs me, then please get in touch via the usual methods.

Watch this space for further updates.

Yours, Jayne x

Happy New Year to you all and what a year it has been!

I do not want to dwell on the past but instead look to the future which, I have no doubt will be brighter by the Spring.

I am sure that you have all seen the latest news about our Lockdown which commences today and I believe will last until mid-February. As a Dog Groomer my Business is deemed one that can remain open BUT for welfare only. It does mean that some of you will need to have your appointments rescheduled until later in February and I will contact you all individually to advise.

In situations where you do not feel comfortable coming along to your appointment (for welfare) then I want to reassure you that I completely understand and any late cancellation charges are waived. Please just let me know in advance.

It is not a great situation to be in but I believe it to be the right decision and for now and we need to ride the storm.

I wish you all well and ask that you stay as safe as you can.

Love Jayne x

This was my tree on Christmas Day. All but three gifts were from clients. I was totally blown away by your generosity and consider myself to be very lucky to have such loyal, thoughtful and fabulous clients.

It has been a rough year for lots of reasons but it was brightened by you all. I have no words other than ‘thank you, thank you, thank you’ from the bottom of my heart.

I have just pinched the following from a friend’s post but I think it explains the issue of ‘matting’ in a dog really well. I know that the majority of my friends and clients understand this and I am really lucky to have such a sensible, kind and caring base of clients and friends but.... if you could share this for me - as I will do on my Duppies page, I would really appreciate it. Thanks

************
Are you thinking of buying a doodle, or Cockapoo, or any Poodle cross? Have you got one of these puppies and been told they don't need grooming until they are a year old, or that their coat maintenance is easy? If so please read this. (The original post was written by an unknown groomer but I have edited it quite a lot!)

Poodle crosses (cockapoos, doodles, maltipoos etc.) are not "easy breeds" to maintain. The photo attached (shared from another groomer) shows how matting forms at the skin. By looking at this dog's top coat, you may not see the knots and you may not feel them as you would a knot on the ends of the fur but under that fluffy top layer this is going on. Once it starts its very difficult/ impossible to brush out... and even if you could it would be cruel to put the dog through it. Maintenance at home has to be more than a quick once over for these dogs if you want to keep them in that fluffy coat. You really need to sit down with a brush and then a metal comb and make sure you can get it through the entire body at least 2 to 3 times a week.

I often feel like owners don't believe groomers when they say their dog has to be clipped very short. You cannot physically clip through matting, you can only clip under it. As this photo shows, clipping under the matting means taking the coat back to the skin.
I promise you, your groomer really doesn't want to do this but they won't hurt your dog by putting it through dematting, they also don't want to hurt their reputation when the clients go around complaining about how the last groomer "scalped" their dog but there really is not any alternative. Instead of being angry with your groomer if they clip your dog very short please respect their commitment to do what is in your dog's best interest, accept responsibility for not having brushed your dog properly at home, and work with your groomer because, together, you can prevent this happening again. All groomers will be very happy to demonstrate how to maintain your dogs coat. It is your job as the owner to do this, not the Groomer’s.

Poodle crosses are easily one of the highest maintenance dogs in terms of their coats. The combination of the soft coat they are mixing poodles with these days is a coat that is extremely prone to matting.

If you like a fluffy pup, you probably need to consider no more than 3-5 week intervals between grooming and set aside time for regular brushing AND combing at home.

Please know, if you bath your poodle cross you really need to blow dry and brush out right after. Moisture, be it a bath, rain, swimming, snow etc are all going to make matting worse. Please also do not rub the coat with a towel as this will exacerbate the matting. Perhaps invest in a drying robe/dog dressing gown.

Lastly "breeders" who say these dogs can't or shouldnt be clipped and not to give them a hair cut until they are one year old are misleading potential owners. Puppies need to be introduced to the Grooming Salon and process from at least 12 weeks old.

If this hasn't put you off buying one please schedule your puppy's first groom immediately after they've had their vaccinations and then be prepared to do the maintenance at home between regular professional grooms.

Morning everyone

You will have seen the news from Boris last night about our month long Lockdown and are perhaps wondering how that will affect your dog’s groom.

Currently is it not clear if Dog Groomers are able to continue to work for the next month but further guidance is expected in the next few days.

For now, I intend to stay open and continue as normal but with two small changes to protocol;

1. Please wear a mask at all times
2. Do not enter the groom room - I will open my top door and take your dog from you.

In the meantime if anything changes I will update you via Facebook and direct message.

If you want to chat, you know where I am.

As always stay safe and look after yourselves
