Thank you actor Aisling Jarrett-Gavin for bringing Mildred to our Grooming Day

Professional Dog Grooming


You have invested bringing your furbaby to your family, so consideration about grooming is not just about maintaining your dog’s level of cleanliness, and it is not just about keeping your dog good-looking. Grooming is about maintaining both your dog’s physical health as well as their appearance. They will then look good, they will be happy and feel... AMAZING

Lorraine was amazing, she fitted me in at the last minute (after a Tick incident) and did a wonderful job of Dizzy.

 We have come down for the weekend to visit family and our little yorkie cross needed a groom but suffers from high anxiety and is terrified, we came to gore street and I cannot recommend enough.
It isn’t just how good the cut is - it’s the extra care
She took with cooper today to reassure him and calm him down - I have not found a groomers willing to put the time in for him, yes we are working hard to help him and train him but they always made us feel like he was a massive burden. He has come back a much happier chap and is loving his pampering.
Thank you again and we are defiantly booking more trips to book him in more regular

 Recently moved to the area and could not be happier with finding Lorraine as our new groomer.

Our little Bichon suffers from separation anxiety and she spent the time to get him comfortable and happy to be there. So much so he got excited on the car journey.

Groom is perfect and the parlour is such a comfortable cute area that Tiny walked around like he owned the place!

Thank you so much for being so patient with him and also making us as owners feel so calm!

Highly recommend!!

Fur Babies "furst" visit

Puppy Pamper From £20

It is important to introduce your puppy to grooming the right way, and a puppy intro does just this, with lots of comfort and cuddles ofcourse.

If you wait too long to begin the grooming sessions, your puppy may not be agreeable to it later on, especially when it comes to  nail clipping.

Our puppy intros includes, pre health assessment, a warm double shampoo wash with special puppy shampoo, a super soft gentle dry to introduce them to the new sounds and sensations, nails trimmed, face trimmed and feet tidied.

Ideally a puppy introduction should be done as soon as the puppy has had their jabs and are able to go on walks, rather than when they need their first full hair cut as this can be very overwhelming for a puppy that isn’t used to receiving a groom.

This is especially important for long-haired  and thick coated dogs, which require more intense grooming sessions as compared to short-haired dogs. It takes more time to brush their fur and they need to get used to staying still for this starting at an early age. That is not to say dogs with short, clipped fur do not require grooming,  they do.

You can begin grooming a puppy when they are as young as three weeks old. Experienced breeders will even begin acquainting their puppies with grooming before they go to their new homes so that by the time they are picked up by their owners, they are already used to it.

Another benefit of grooming is that it allows you to check your dog for any abnormalities. This includes skin problems such as ticks, fleas and dry patches, or issues with their nails, teeth, ears, and eyes such as infection or inflammation. When found at an early stage, these problems can be treated right away, before they have a chance to become more serious.

Simply put, Grooming helps keep your dog happy and healthy, gives you and your dog a time that is set aside just for the two of you, 

 So don’t delay, start grooming your puppy early!




Considerations when pricing your groom

Stage of the coat and it’s condition 

Thickness of the coat 

Size of animal


Dogs have always been my passion , therefore,  I need to consider the above factors as they determine the levels of grooming required. 

I do not want to overcharge you neither do I wish to underestimate my work. 

Please be as precise as possible when describing your dog to us over the phone and arrange a meet and greet. However, a health check will be done prior to every groom.

If your dog becomes extremely matted I shall do everything I can to save the coat (no groomer wants to clip everything off) however, being matted is extremely uncomfortable and even painful for the dog but this will be discussed at the consultation stage.

 As you can see we take every eventuality into account.  

Our work is our Integrity and we can't wait to welcome you to the Studio.

Frequently Asked Questions...and the not so nice bits

ALL dogs must be on a leash. Please be respectful of other animals and pet parents that maybe on site. We recommend your companion have a securely fastened collar or harness, and we do request flea collars are removed prior to grooming appointments.  

How much is a groom -  We consider every case separately. When pricing your groom we take many factors into consideration: 

Dog’s age & Dog’s behaviour 

Grooming programme (if required)

Grooming History 


Size of the dog 

My dog has a prescribed wash - no problem, if your dog has a vet prescription wash bring it in and we will label it and safely store it for you for next time. Grooming programme required.

Timing - I need my dog back quickly !!

(I've asked my own hairdresser for this ((on me LOL)) and now I know to get the results I want it takes Time...).  A typical wash, blowdry and clip is 2 - 3hrs, pending on size and condition & type of coat, especially as some dogs take alot longer to dry than others.  

My dog is unpredictable when it comes to grooming -  Help us help your dog.  Whilst we are not the "dreaded" vets, some dogs behaviours are rather tricky...... so by letting Gore Street Groomers know in advance that your pet is nervous and could strike out we can make additional arrangements to help the dog or decide whether it is best for both parties not to go ahead.  Safety of both groomer and dog are paramount.

Appointments - Cancellations

We can provide a courtesy reminder service on your request. However, should you not receive this reminder – it is still your responsibility to let us know that you would like to rearrange or cancel your appointment.  

Out of courtesy we would appreciate a minimum 48hr notice,  Because we give such individualised attention to each dog, filling last minute cancellations and "no-shows" are very difficult.  

Arriving late for your appointment

OK, we get it, so if you arrive at the salon 15 minutes late of your pet’s scheduled time, your appointment will be considered as late. The time may need to be taken off your groom however, we will work with you to fulfil the original appointment or discuss other arrangements for the session. 

Collection / Late collection

We will call you 30mins prior to collection giving you ample time to head on over,  please be prompt as this will affect the next appointment and really do not want the animals getting stressed / bored..

Vet information is required at the time of scheduling your appointment.
