Specialist Sled Dog Grooming
I was a qualified groomer before I became the owner of 2 malamutes, (should have known better about all that fur right?!) and I was shocked when I found out that owners had taken their dogs to the groomers only to have them shaved, or "furminated"!
As a groomer I was always passionate about refusing to unnecessarily shave double coated breeds and couldn't quite believe that there were groomers out there practising this as normal grooming techniques so with this in mind I decided to offer a specialist grooming service where owners could be certain that their sled dog would be groomed only as they should be.
I only groom one dog at a time so there is no need for dogs to be waiting around in kennels, crates or a noisy salon and I will work at a pace your dog is comfortable with.
Brush out using a combination of wide tooth comb, slicker brush & rake
Detangle where necessary using a conditioning spray, comb and matt breaker
