For most dogs, grooming every 4-6 weeks is imperative to avoid painful matting, spot checks for fleas, prevention of ear infections, and identification of any abnormal growths. At Bark & Co. we provide a range of services from a simple Wash and Blow Dry to a Full Body Stylised Groom.
Wash & Dry
Thorough wash with gentle massage of your pet’s whole body using our professional care shampoo, followed by a blow dry and brush out of any knots. Also included is a nail trim and sanitary clean of the bottom if we feel necessary.
Wash & Tidy
Same as the Wash & Dry service but with the added service of a tidy around the face focusing on scissoring away unnecessary hairs around the eyes, mouth, ears, a sanitary clean of the bottom and groin area, paw pad trim, nail trim, and a tidy of the feet.
Full Body Groom
A tailor made groom for you and your pet. Upon arrival we will assess your pet’s coat and condition and discuss what you would like to achieve and what is possible. Not sure what you want? You can always bring in a picture and we can work from there. What’s included in this package is the full wash and blow dry, brush out, full body clip to a length that is achievable, sanitary clean, paw pad trim, and a nail trim
Please note the above table is only a guide. Please visit our store with your dog and we’ll aim to give you an approximate quote after assessing your dog’s size & coat condition. We will inform you if there will be any additional charges on top of the quoted grooming price.
Teeth Clean $10
We thoroughly examine your dog’s teeth and brush away any fresh build up, followed by a minty breath refresher.
Nail File $10
For dogs that suffer from dermatitis our Malaseb Medicated shampoo may help.
Oatmeal Shampoo $10
For dogs that have extra sensitive skin, oatmeal shampoo may help ease dry and itchy skin.
Flea Wash $10
An additional flea wash to rid your dog of any fleas. We also recommend using monthly flea treatments to prevent reoccurring flea infestations. Please note if we find fleas on your dog during their time here a flea wash will be charged and you will be notified straight away.
Nail Trim $15
No appointment necessary if your furry friend just requires a nail trim, pop in anytime during business hours and it’ll get done on the spot. It only takes a few minutes!
Nail File $10
Just like human nails, a dog’s nail can still be very sharp right after cutting, so a quick buff of the nails will smooth it our just right.
Matting/De-Matting Fee from $10
When your dog’s hair is very matted a matting fee will be charged for the extra time and care taken to remove the matting. If we believe the hair can be salvageable a de-matting fee may be charged for the extra time needed to brush and comb it out
De-Shedding Fee from $10
For the dogs that have a heavy shedding coat or are just transitioning between seasons. Extra de-shedding may to charged to brush out all that extra hair and minimize the shedding at home.
Double Coated Clip Offs
Although, we don’t recommend clipping off double coated dogs, we do see it as a necessity for some senior dogs where their coat can no longer be maintained properly (especially during summer)
As we’ve never actually seen your proposed dog, we need to make some presumptions about pricing. They are:
- that the coat is in a reasonable condition
- if necessary, any heavy de-matting or knot removal required will incur extra charges
- your dog has a nice temperament and overall is fine being touched and handled
- Mixed breed dog pricing will be based on the most dominant breed and/or coat that presents
You are welcome to pop-in for a more accurate quote as we can then see what exactly you would like done, and to assess your dog’s coat condition etc.
EFTPOS & Credit Card Surcharge
Please note if paying by card there is a 1.9% surcharge applied on all transactions, cash payment is always welcome.
At Bark & Co. we understand our customers have a busy lifestyle. We encourage our customers to let us know if you are running late and at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
We reserve the right to refuse service to any pet for any reason including, without limitation, if it appears that the pet is sick, in pain or its condition could jeopardise the health and safety of other dogs and groomer.
