The Houghall Dog Grooming Studio

Found inside our Small Animal Care unit at the Houghall Campus in Durham, we have everything your pooch needs for their pampering session.

Your dog will be treated to a bath with high quality shampoo, be blow dried, bushed and have their nail clipped. We'll also give them a cut perfect for their coat - as different breeds all have different coats, every treatment is tailored specifically for your dog.

Here's exactly what's included in the full pampering session:

  • Full Initial Consultations
  • Health Check
  • Bath
  • Brush
  • Blow dry
  • Appropriate Hair Style
  • Hand Strip
  • Ears Cleaned and Plucked
  • Perfume Spray

Dog Salon Services Documents

Our dog grooming services are offered in accordance with the terms and conditions outlined in the document below. Owners will be expected to fill in their details and agree to all terms and conditions before any dog grooming treatment goes ahead.

If a dog has a matted coat, we will expect the owner to fill in and sign a declaration that they are happy for the treatment to go ahead. Matted coats can cause skin and health problems for dogs, meaning grooming can be a painful process. The dog groomer will explain more to you if your dog is found to have a matted coat.
