ABOUT BONES AND COMBS
Welcome to Bones and Combs Dog Spa!
I am Lucy and I proudly own Bones and Combs.
I am a fully qualified Dog Groomer at Distinction level, having studied a City and Guilds qualification at college for 2 years.
I have been lucky enough to set up this fully equipped and insured grooming salon from my family home.
All my life I have been an animal lover, specifically taking a favouring to dogs. Having owned several Spaniels, I currently have two beautiful Working Cockers, Daisy and Rolo, who you will see featured throughout my website.
I started grooming in 2018 and immediately knew that I had found my dream job.
Whilst your dog is in my company I can assure you that they will receive the same amount of love and care that I would give to my own. I work strictly on a one-to-one, cage free basis and take pride in the time and attention to detail that I put into my grooms.
Book your pooch in for a pamper at Bones and Combs, and I guarantee they will leave looking, feeling and smelling their absolute best.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Everything You Need to Know About Bones and Combs
HOW MANY DOGS CAN YOU GROOM AT ONCE?
At Bones and Combs I strictly work on a one-to-one basis with the dogs that I groom. Your dog will not be confined to a cage at any point. I believe this is the most relaxing environment for the dogs. I am always ensuring that their comfort comes first.
I only allow two dogs in together if they are from the same household.
HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE?
In 2018 I volunteered as Kennel Assistant with the RSPCA and began my Dog Grooming course. I trained with City and Guilds and qualified at distinction level.
I have previously worked for two local grooming companies, however since then I have been lucky enough to set up my own grooming business from home, equipped with top of the range tools and products.
ARE THERE ANY BREEDS YOU DO NOT GROOM?
At Bones and Combs I welcome dogs of all size and breed.
For larger breeds, they must come to me to be groomed from a puppy, or have been groomed previously and are already used to the grooming process for training and safety reasons.
If your dog is anxious please do not hesitate to ask for an introductory groom, where I will take a much slower approach to get them used to myself and the grooming environment. It is important that every dog enjoys their pamper session.
- I reserve the right to refuse difficult or unpredictable dogs -
HOW LONG WILL GROOMING MY DOG TAKE?
This depends on the breed, the service requested and coat condition of your dog.
A full groom including a bath, blow dry, full body trimming and nail clipping would take me approximately 2 hours.
Larger breeds can take 1.5-3 hours
