Dog Grooming Questions & Answers
Health & Welfare
No, they won’t as we do not use crates in our Mobile Grooming Van as we provide a one to one service.
At Pawgeous we do not crate or cage dogs. Being a mobile dog grooming service, we provide a personal groom one dog at a time.
Yes, we encourage anything that will help your dog relax and enjoy the experience.
Grooming or bathing your pet once about every four-to-six weeks, either at home or with a professional groomer, will keep your pet happy and healthy and allow them to be regularly checked for any abnormalities, such as ticks, fleas and dry patches or problems with nails, teeth, ears and eyes. Pets who have recently been vaccinated, have active infections or have underlying health issues are at higher risk of injury from stress. Older pets, those with special challenges, pets who have recently experienced stressful life changes or injuries are at higher risk of experiencing stress or aggravating a condition during grooming. Keep in mind, stress in pets can be cumulative, meaning a series of stressful situations can affect a pet’s health and well-being. Be sure to flag any special conditions with us and note all pertinent information on the grooming record card.
Please ensure you give them a walk first; it will give them a chance to relieve themselves and will de-energise and relax them.
Generally, we can accommodate a bitch that is in season. It is advisable that you contact us to discuss the stage of your bitch’s season prior to her appointment.
You may feed your dog a small amount at least two hours before their appointment, as this can keep them comfortable during the grooming. Please do not overfeed and allow your dog the opportunity to toilet well before our arrival.
A lot of customers ask how we keep the dogs still for grooming and the answer is that we are experienced at what we do, and our doggy customers get to know us very well and are very happy while they are with us. We try to make the experience as enjoyable as we can even though being groomed isn’t a natural experience for them. We use supports around the neck and belly for safety purposes for your dog as if for any reason your dog did try to jump off, we are able to stop them from causing themselves any harm. All certified training establishments for dog grooming would recommend using supports for the safety of the dog.
Yes of course. We have a hydraulic grooming table and bath so pets will not need to be lifted at all. They will be groomed in a calm and familiar environment which reduces stress and separation anxiety. Our equipment is designed with your pet’s comfort and safety in mind and is especially ideal for senior and anxious pets. For extremely nervous dogs, it would be best not to feed him/her for 3 hours before the groom.
I am very experienced in grooming elderly dogs and give them extra special care and attention and will give them extra rest during the treatment. If they have trouble standing, we have belly supports and will also break the treatment up so that they can have a lie down in between. We have several blind, deaf and arthritic customers and we adapt each treatment to each individual dog’s needs.

Travelling to the dog groomers can take a lot of valuable time and produce unnecessary stress. So, why have the battle of getting your dog into the car and hoping there is parking in town, when I can come to you? My “mobile grooming dog spa” has the latest ‘Hydrobath’ washing and blaster drying, with a height adjustable grooming table, providing easy access for dogs of all sizes. Also, for all my dog grooming services, I use hypoallergenic shampoos, conditioners and massage washing, ensuring a deeper clean. I hand towel and fluff dry all dogs, before a style groom.
At Pawgeous, it’s not just about the grooming services I offer – It is more than work for me, I love the interaction and cuddles with your dog. To formalise my love and passion, I have undertaken industry leading City & Guildstraining and Canine First Aid courses.
As a dog mad family, our two German Shepherds and Border Collie are spoilt rotten, and that’s how we feel every dog should be – especially yours!
