What makes our dog grooming services different and better than the rest

Why choose A1 Grooming

We differ to your typical groomer in that our services are quite unique and reflect my experience in both dog behaviour and grooming. We are highly qualified and KC-UK recognised as a show groomer and competition groomer. We are also recognised members of the British Dog Groomers’ Association UK.

During your dogs' groom, no restraints, muzzles or straps are used.

There will be no crate for them to sit in, nor are there lots of people involved with the grooming process. From the moment they arrive, they will be in my constant care and watchful eye.

Great care has been taken to source organic and chemical – free cleaning shampoos and conditioners to ensure that there is a reduced risk of aggravating the skin and damaging the coat.

High quality ingredients such as shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil and bees wax are used to bring out the best finish. Even the colognes and perfumes are ensured to be alcohol free and kind for the dog.

Treats such as boiled chicken and homemade dog biscuits are given as much as required during the duration of the groom. Naturally, fresh water and breaks are given during the groom.

The premises and grooming areas are sterilised to medical standards after each dog.

This also includes the grooming equipment such as the scissors, combs etc. of which 3 sets will be used during each process of your dogs’ groom.

A summary of our services

Basic wash and dry
Anal Glands are emptied, Nails trimmed, inner ear canal plucked.

Intermediate groom
AS previously but this includes scissoring of the legs and feet.

There is also a tidy up of the coat with scissors and basic head and face definition.
Clipper Finish
This is for the basic clipped all over look. There can be some variation in the length of coat - ie. teddy bear look with body and neck shorter than legs. If your dog is heavily matted then this is the service needed to remove the knots and matted fur.
Show / Styled finish
This covers all aspects of your dog - from finding your dog's style and the individual cut as required for show. Typically very little clipping is done but relies on scissor work only. The coat must be tangle free and of good health and anatomy.

We can offer a collection and delivery service at an extra cost depending on mileage and time. To make a booking and to find out more about the current availability, please call 0121 477 6019.

  • So pleased with the whole experience. Wonderful groomer who gave us lots of advice, as well as giving our springer Jess a superb clip and head to toe treatment.
