Careful consideration is given to your dogs grooming style. We work closely with you and your dog. We will consider how much grooming you are prepared to do each day, as a rule the more fancy and longer the style, the more effort is required on a daily basis.

A1 Grooming are now giving you a selection of dog grooming packages to select from. Which range from a simple wash and go dog grooming Redditch service (from as little as £5!) to the quintessential “show groom” for your beloved dog!

Cautious consideration is given to your dogs grooming style. We work closely with you and your canine. We will take into account how much grooming that you’re ready to complete every day, generally, the more complicated and longer the style, the more effort is demanded on a daily basis.

Another thing to consider is what type of life style do you and your dog have? If it is mainly urban walks, pavement walks if you like, this will likely suit a longer show style as less debris and muck will be found on your dog.

If your dog enjoys an active style running in the mud and grass, a shorter more manageable style will be suitable.

The younger the dog, the shorter the style – as being active will be the principal priority. It will also help you to control those dirty post walk chores.

An experienced groomer will take into account the proportions of your doggy in main blocks. The skill is to be capable to visually balance your dog and also giving a focal point in each block. Balance and flow should be seen to exhibit both the breed standard and the uniqueness or individuality of the dog.

Dog grooming Redditch

Prior to an appointment

Prior to every dog grooming Redditch session, all equipment is sterilised and made clean and hygienically safe. This includes all equipment, grooming tools, the bathing area, drying area, outside area and walkways.

It is A1 Grooming’s policy that only one owners’ dogs are on site at any time, no crates, restraints and lots of dogs at one time. This is our ethos here and is non-negotiable.

The introduction

No matter how frequently your dog has visited, the same process is used to introduce your dog to the A1 grooming experience. The dog is allowed to wander free and investigate the grooming area without interruption or human intervention.

Usually there is no talking throughout this phase as your dog is going to be focusing on their study of the vicinity. The moment the dog is ready, they will introduce themselves to me, signalling that they are happy to carry on.

Health check

Every single groom begins with a health check. This is required to identify any irregularities such as skin warts, tags, cuts, foreign matter – be it fleas, or vegetation.

Furthermore, it allows the canine to get familiar with my contact and for me to promote a sense of well being as opposed to stress! Removal of matted fur and tangles. Knots removed and where possible hair saved for styling later.

Pre groom

Removal of matted fur and tangles. Knots removed and where possible hair saved for styling later.

Sterilised professional bladed combs and equipment help to save as much coat as possible if a finishing style is to be done.

Pre wash

Filtered warm water is utilized to bathe your dog prior to chemical free soaps and conditioners are applied to take away the dirt and grease from the coat. Ingredients such as tea, bicarbonate of soda, fresh lemon and apple cider vinegar help to remove dirt.


Palm & chemical free soaps with natural and organic pesticide free ingredients. Shea butter, coconut oil, castor oil, olive oil, Aloe Vera & vitamin E are combined with herbs, fruits, berries and essential oils to produce a thick creamy paste like lather, abundant with vitamins and oils to condition and nourish the skin and hair.

Rinse and conditioner

Purified, filtered water (free from chlorine and lime) is utilized to rinse off the rich and creamy lather. An additional layer of aloe vera and shea & coconut butter is applied without expense, to be sure the coat and skin are well protected during the drying stage.


Immediately after eliminating any excess water, clean towels are warmed and wrapped around your dog. Hand massaging with the warm towels helps to calm and soothe, ahead of the introduction of warm air from the dryers.

Finishing dry

The warm air is lightly passed through the coat, through the comb as each hair is combed through very fine teeth and an anti static & aloe vera spray is dried into the coat. When both the skin and hair are totally dry, a cooling air will be utilized to make certain the dog has not over heated and to avoid heat spots or rash.


The best blades and equipment are sterilised before use. Razor sharp, titanium and carbonised stainless steel blades are utilized to create the sought after look. Nails are cut as needed and ear hair is extracted just before cleaning. Teeth are treated with a natural gel containing tea tree oil, aloe vera and mint. Any kind of hard plaque is scraped off.

Finishing touches

Warm air is applied to blow out any left over cut hair from the coat and ribbons, bows and decorative items are now situated and placed. Fragrance or perfume is dried into the coat in advance of a completing layer of bees wax is applied for the shine.
