We  also provide grooming services for Dogs, including nail clipping and gland expression. Positive Canine Coaching is included  to assist dogs who are nervous, anxious and/or aggressive when being groomed. As a complimentary and additional calming support, we use therapeutic grade essential oils and treatments. If your dog or cat is experiencing a change in its behaviour or showing any signs of discomfort please give us a call.
