How long will my pets appointment be?
This is dependent on the size, coat condition, temperament and styling requirements of your pet. At Look North we take great care to put your pets welfare first allowing comfort breaks in-between the different processes. This therefore requires a minimum appointment time of two and a half hours although we have the facilities for a longer stay if this suits your requirements better.
What is included in the cost of the appointment?
A full groom includes consultation and coat advice, visual health check, grooming out, bathing with finest Italian coat treatments, complete drying, scissoring and styling or hand stripping, nail trimming, ear cleaning.
What will the cost be?
This is dependent on the size, coat condition, temperament and styling requirements of your pet. Please contact Look North for price details.
Can I stay with my dog?
Our advice is for you to leave your dog with us as we find they respond better and are less stressed during the grooming process. However, if you do need to stay with your dog this can be accommodated by prior arrangement.
Are the dogs in crates?
Our dogs are kept in a secure environment for their own safety and to give them their own personal space and the opportunity to relax comfortably.
What if my dog is ill, pregnant or in season?
If your dog has sickness and/or diarrhoea the appointment must be re-arranged. If your dog has a minor injury or other illness, it may still be possible to groom but please contact us prior to the appointment to discuss. We will not groom a bitch beyond 4 weeks pregnant and up to 6 weeks after the puppies are born but this is subject to prior discussion. If your bitch is in season it can still attend but please notify us on or before your arrival.
What age should my puppy be for it's first appointment?
A puppy can come for grooming at any age providing that all required vaccinations have been carried out and the vet has given the all clear for the dog to socialise. Introducing your puppy to the grooming salon at an early age will build confidence and help to make the grooming process a pleasure.
