welcome to the dog house
Yippeeeee – You’ve found us!
Welcome to The Dog House Canine Spa. Founded by Selina West and Anna Pollard we have a lifelong passion of all things dog. Your fairy dog mothers are here to help!
Are you looking for the perfect puppy introduction for a life of stress free grooming?
Worried about leaving your dog at the grooming salon?
Or need a groomer who understands your dog’s quirks?
These are just a few concerns that our loyal customers shared with us at the start of their journey and we get it, it can be daunting for owner and dog. We can count the number of people we trust our own dogs with …..on less than one hand.
Choosing a dog groomer is so much more than ringing around to see who has the cheapest price and next available appointment, it’s an emotional investment too.
You and your dog are invited to join us for a 1-1 consultation. We will take you through our CANINE Health Check before deciding which of our spa packages best suits your dog and your lifestyle.
Why The Dog House?
Over our years of experience it’s evident that some dogs require a little more handling and can be a bit nervous of the grooming process. At The Dog House we have the ability to work two groomers to one dog helping your dog to become more relaxed, therefore enjoying the experience more. Talk to us if you’re dog is reactive and we can arrange a quieter time for salon exclusivity
We specialise in introducing your puppy to the grooming process at the earliest opportunity. Ensuring they are happy and content being in the salon with us, giving them chance to absorb all of their surroundings. We use puzzles, games and treats to help them settle whilst they become used to the environment. We love to see happy puppies bounding up to the salon, excited for their sessions to start. You potentially have 15 years of dog grooming on a 6 week schedule. Why not make it an experience for them to adore?
