This is my first visit, is there anything else I should know?

We would ask that if possible you allow an extra 5-10 minutes for when you arrive, this is to ensure that we have all the necessary details about you and your dog to achieve the look you are after and your pets safter.

How long do will I need to leave my dog?

We appreciate that your time is precious and we always aim to be prompt. We usually require around 3-4 hours to complete a full groom on most breeds, but we will call you when your pet is ready for pick up.

What if my dog is really nervous?

Allow us a little more time during your dogs appointment if they are nervous or new to grooming. This way they will have time to get used to the new sounds and smells at the salon.

Can I earn Friends for Life points from Animates Grooming services?

Yes, all grooming services provided at an Animates store will accumulate Friends for Life points.

What if my dog is really matted?

Our professional groomers will advise you of what is possible and whether there are extra charges involved depending on the condition of your pets coat.

What if my dog bites?

Please let us know if you think or know that your dog may bite. We may need to take necessary precautions to ensure the safety of both the groomer and your pet.

What if my dog barks a lot?

That's ok, it's all part of the job! Our dog groomers are issued with ear protection.
