Lisa's 1 to 1 individual, unique Grooming service allows you to make sure your pet is well taken care of, even when you’re not around. Lisa is City and Guilds qualified and has attended many workshops, seminars and webinars, not only on grooming but on behaviour, to keep her knowledge up to date. First Aid Trained and fully insured by Cliverton.
Lisa`s salon is a small dog specialist (and only grooms dogs under 25kg), particularly in Chinese Crested as Lisa has some of her own. Purely1 to 1 based, no cages or cabinet dryers and no other pets in the room at the same time. Lisa uses holistic techniques such as aromatherapy, calming music, or reggae music which has been proven to help keep pets more relaxed. Dogs are free to roam, snuggle up and relax after their grooms.
Due to being 1 to 1 this means Lisa is able to groom dogs who do not like other dogs and those who are nervous.
Each Dog is unique, whether you like your dog trimmed to breed standard or a design entirely of your own, I will always take the time to discuss and understand your dogs needs as an individual.
Lisa is constantly researching into new products and looking into ingredients lists. Lisa will not compromise quality for cost and only use products which are Vegan, Palm oil free from alcohol, parabens, soaps & dyes which can cause irritation and itchiness. Lisa currently uses For All Dog Kind Shampoos
Critterz Grooming uses a state of the art hydrobath, the hydrobath spray head produces a unique hydro-combing action that massages and stimulates the skin, improving blood circulation and tired muscles. This could be beneficial for arthritis sufferers and older dogs.
Grooming is an important aspect of your dog’s health and well-being, every breed has different requirements when it comes to maintaining their coats but its important to stick to a schedule suitable for your dog’s coat type, grooming style and lifestyle.
As every dog is different in size, has a different coat and different grooming requirements it is hard to give a definite price for every breed. Please contact Lisa for an estimated price for your Dog.

Once your puppy has had their injections its a good idea to get them used to being groomed. Short regular appointments for puppies helps create happy, relaxed dogs being groomed as they get older. The sooner they are associated with the noise of dryers and feel of brushes and clippers the quicker they learn that grooming is a way of life and a pleasant experience, not one to be feared.
Lisa spends time earning the trust of your pup, positive reinforcement is so important in these early stages.
