Why Choose Us?
At Wags, Woofs & Whiskers, your dog is our absolute number one priority. We are passionate about animal welfare, and strive to create a grooming experience that is as natural and stress-free as possible. We operate at all times on a one to one basis, and never overbook or rush our appointments, so there is no need for your beloved pooch to be kept waiting, or put in a kennel. We have worked hard to create a calm, relaxed environment for your dog so that the grooming experience is as enjoyable and positive as we can make it, and they leave happy and excited to return!
With animal welfare being our absolute main priority, we will never push a dog to endure anything that they are uncomfortable with, and while they are in our care they will be treated with as much love and respect as we show our own dogs. We have sourced the most high quality, natural products that we can find (coconut oil paw rub anyone?!), and strive to look after your pets emotional and physical wellbeing at all times.
We think that in order to appropriately control the stress levels of the dogs in our care, it is important that we can adequately control the noise level and power of our dryer. After a lot of research, we chose a dryer which allows us to control the heat, power, and noise, ensuring that your pup stays comfortable at all times, which is especially important for dogs who are anxious about the drying process.
We do not, and will not ever use cage or cabinet dryers. Our service is truly one to one, with no bathers or assistants, and no need for your dog to be left in a cage or unattended at any point.
We are big fans of the “Happy Hoodie” at Wags, Woofs & Whiskers. Although our dryer is fantastic for nervous pooches, we like to take extra measures to ensure your dogs are as relaxed as possible during their stay. Therefore, some pups can be seen wearing one of these microfibre snoods whilst they are being dried.
Some dogs become anxious or fearful of the noise and force which come from high-velocity dryers, so the ‘Happy Hoodie’ muffles the noise and helps to keep dogs calm. The thick material also helps to soak up moisture from the covered area assisting drying of ears and face, which are often areas where dogs are particularly sensitive.
Toys and treats
We want your dog to love visiting us, so we like to make sure that we schedule our appointments so that no aspect is rushed, and we can go at your dogs pace, as well as allowing a little time to play with a toy and have a nutritious treat before or after the groom (with your permission!). We prefer to groom fewer dogs per day and be able to get to know each dog individually.
