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 the full City and Guilds qualification at Plumpton College.
I have been lucky enough to set up this fully equipped and insured grooming salon from my family home.
I have always 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!
I work strictly on a one-to-one, cage free basis as I feel that this puts the dogs at ease and gives them more freedom in the salon. I take pride in the attention to detail and time taken to perfect my grooms.
Whilst your dog is in my company I can assure you that they will receive love and care to the highest standard and be spoilt during their pamper, as if they are my own.
Book your pooch in for a groom 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 work one-to-one with the dogs that I groom. Your dog will not be confined to a cage at any point, as I believe this makes the experience more relaxing for your 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 for 2 years and qualified at distinction level.
I gained experience and knowledge from working at two other grooming salons prior to setting up Bones and Combs.
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 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.

HOW LONG WILL GROOMING MY DOG TAKE?
This depends on the breed, the service requested and coat condition of your dog.
A full groom for a medium sized dog takes me approximately 2 hours,
Larger breeds can take 1.5-3 hours.
