Puppies (first time groom) & nervous dogs – Clipsters specialise in first-time grooms and working with nervous dogs. These sessions can take longer and may sometimes need to be broken into two visits to avoid distressing a dog. Contact Clipsters to discuss how we work and guidelines costs (and also see our blog).

Price for puppies (upto 6 months old) first time groom – £25. Subsequent visits will increase by £5 each time until they reach the full price for their size/breed (as above).

Hand stripping (eg. for border terriers) – from £45-£60 (depending on size)

Special ones – those dogs that need even more care and attention because of their breed, hair type and so on – please contact Clipsters to discuss your dog’s needs.

Blueberry Facial (regular use helps to remove tear stains) – additional £2.50 to the above costs.

All dogs leave Clipsters with a doggy report card to let owners know how things went, and the best behaved leave with a homemade treat.

The above are guideline costs only and can be affected by the condition of the dog’s coat.  If the coat is severely matted, every effort will be made to brush it out, but clipping may be required.  If your dog is found to have fleas there will be an additional £10 charge for application of medicated flea shampoo and decontaminating the grooming environment and equipment.  Any changes in the price originally quoted will be advised by phone or text before treatment takes place. 

By booking, you agree to inform Clipsters of any health issues your dog may have; it may not prevent grooming from being undertaken but helps us to make sure your dog is as comfortable as possible during their treatment.

Your dog’s safety, wellbeing and comfort is paramount to us.  However, in the highly unlikely event that your dog becomes agitated or aggressive, we reserve the right to not complete treatment but may still charge for time taken, products used etc.  We will inform you by phone or text should this be the case.

An important note on cancellations: We try to be as flexible as possible, but we are busy and if you need to cancel or change your Clipsters appointment, please let us know at least 48 hours beforehand. Letting us know less than 48 hours before your appointment may incur a charge of £10. If you cancel on the day (including failure to arrive as arranged) the charge may be 50% of the expected grooming cost.

By booking with Clipsters you are acknowledging and accepting these terms. For full terms and conditions, see here.
