Doggroomology | Colchester Dog Grooming Parlour | Our Services

Dog Groom

We offer you a professional and friendly service and will arrange a consultation with you to discuss the exact type of grooming and care your pet needs. For those who are unsure what will suit your dog, we will always offer friendly advice, ideas and guidance. We will also discuss any health concerns or needs your dog has and all new customers will have a record form where we will discuss from all you and dogs needs, any of their health concerns and history, to their likes/dislikes and more so ensure the best care and treatment are provided for their health, comfort and wellbeing. We will then discuss a pick up time.

Our grooming parlour has a calm atmosphere to ensure your dog remains relaxed and happy throughout its session with us. We aim to get your dog back to you as soon as we can because we know how much you miss them – and how excited they are to see you! However, if you do need to leave them with us for a little longer, no problem! All our kennels are soft, warm and clean with sheepskin rugs and fresh water (please note: our kennels are cleaned and disinfected after every dog visit). They can even bring their favourite toy with them for comfort if they wish!

We understand how difficult it can be to get your dog to a groomers or to get a suitable appointment which is why we offer flexible hours and a collection and delivery service.

Our high standards of hygiene are maintained throughout our well equipped salon which includes a hydraulic bath and grooming table – ideal for very large or elderly or infirm pets – all ensuring your dog is in the very best care at all times. Please see our services for more information.

We welcome feedback too and always appreciate your views.

We look forward to seeing you at your next appointment with doggroomology!
