Especially for wire-haired dogs or silky-haired gundogs, this technique allows the animal to display its best possible coat. Dogs destined for competitive shows require this service, but domestic pets do too, since hand-textured dogs clearly show their correct coat texture which makes for effortless coat maintenance, producing a vibrant, brighter coat. indeed many animals are so relaxed during hand stripping they nod off! Unfortunately, neutered animals are often impossible to hand strip due to changes in coat structure and pliability.

Pride & Groom ‘CSI’
Our ‘Coat & Skin Investigation’ team is adept at hunting down pesky parasites and irritating skin conditions in pets. A disease and infection-free skin and coat is critical not just to your animal but to you too, since a growing number of ailments and infections can pass from pet to person. Our CSI experts swiftly identify warning signs and the tell-tale symptoms of infection and disease. They then advise you to consult your own vet for the best treatment.
If fleas are detected at any stage of the grooming process, your animal will be given an insecticidal bath, as will all other animals at Pride & Groom that day. We also place a strict protocol on sanitising out entire salon in the event that fleas are detected. For your peace of mind, we regularly disinfect and sterilise all our equipment and surfaces with a state-of-the-art tool sanitiser and highly-effective ultra-violet light. We also offer free advice on flea control and elimination.
Our philosophy at Pride & Groom is ‘start as you mean to go on’. That’s why we place great emphasis on exposing your pup to regular grooming and pet hygiene from an early age. Learning from experience, we find that simply watching other pets being groomed is a great way of introducing your puppy to our caring environment. Once your puppy has been acclimatised to the salon, we gently groom them. They learn to raise their paws, lift their head and to feel totally at ease during teeth examinations.
Health & Safety
Our priority is your pet’s welfare. That’s why we work at Pride & Groom. All our experts are well-versed in animal welfare and safety procedures. In order to prevent contamination from infectious animals or the possibility of fights, we prohibit animals from running in the salon or from being in physical contact with other pets, unless they are from the same home. Our top-of-the-range grooming tables also incorporate the very latest protection designs that prevent slips, trips and falls.
