How long should you wait between grooming appointments?

Our salon advises that how often your dog should be groomed is based on the individual coat types, the length of cut (Teddy Bear or Kennel cut), and how often you brush your dog’s coat at home.

All dogs need regular brushing at home, but some require more or less grooming depending on the haircut you want. Short haired dogs, or dogs that get a kennel cut require much less maintenance and frequent grooming, because the hair is less likely to tangle or mat at short length. This cut is best for busy people who are not able to brush as often at home and prefer to bring their dog for professional grooming every 6- 8 weeks.

Owners preferring a longer Teddy Bear cut should expect to brush their dog as often as that breed requires in order to keep the coat from tangling along with regular professional grooming every 4-6 weeks.

Dogs that have undercoat require regular grooming every 6-12 weeks to remove excess undercoat. This keeps the dog’s coat healthy and helps prevent skin issues.

Guidelines for frequency of appointments:

Kennel Cut every 6 – 8 weeks
Breed Cut every 4 – 6 weeks
Teddy Bear Cut every 4 – 6 weeks
Bath and Tidy every 6 – 12 weeks
Baths every 6 – 12 weeks


Matted/Tangled Hair

Should your dog come to our salon with matted or tangled hair, this will result in the cut being a shorter length and also will allow regrowth of the coat. We do not dematt dogs as it is extremely painful for the pet. Our priority is your pet’s health and comfort.  For your pet’s well being, our philosophy is that that matts and tangles need to be removed safely.
