Opening Hours: Find Your Clinic


By Jess Nielson, Nurse

Each week across our Napier, Waipukurau, Dannevirke and Masterton clinics our professional groomers are busy making dogs look pretty.

Amy works from our Dannevirke branch and has over 3 years grooming experience, Heather works from our Waipukurau and Napier branches with over 15 year’s experience and Nicola Sheldon in our Masterton branch with 2 year’s experience. These ladies will groom anything from a Chihuahua to a German Shepherd. Puppy grooms are also welcomed.

It is important to start grooming puppies early on, so your puppy has the best experience from a young age, and helps with training for clipping when it is older. Our groomers offer a 10% discount on any puppys first groom. We pride ourselves in being able to get your dog looking great, without them feeling stressed or anxious, in a safe and caring environment.

When your dog is booked in for a groom we ask that you drop him or her off between 8-8.30am. You will have a consultation with the groomer to discuss how you would like your dog groomed, as well as to discuss any questions you may have. We need you to leave your dog with us for the day, and collection is after 4 pm.

Your dog will enjoy a day of pampering, with under floor heating in cages to keep warm throughout the day.

Our groomers will:

  • Wash, brush and cut the coat.
  • Trim nails.
  • De-matt any tangles.
  • Clean face and ears.
  • Style to your request.

While we are grooming your dog, our groomers are also on the look-out for lumps or bumps, or any other abnormalities that they will bring to the vets attention. Having a vet on hand is fantastic, as we can offer other services while your pet is here. Worming, fleaing, vaccinations, health checks, anal gland express. Any extra services will be discussed with you prior to being undertaken.

Come in and talk to one of our groomers today, all enquiries are welcome. Or phone your clinic to make an appointment. Care and cuddles guaranteed!
