Frequently Asked Questions

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 before your appointment time, this is to ensure that we have all the necessary details about you and your dog to achieve the look you are after and ensure your pets safety

How long 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. As a general rule, a half day and full day charge applies for having your dog at the salon any longer than the groom permits. Additional to this, late pick up fees may apply at Store Manager and Groomer discretion if you do not collect your pet at the arranged time.

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.

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.

My dog likes to bark a lot!

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

What if I'm not happy with my groom?

We have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on all our grooming services, so if you are not satisfied for any reason please get in touch with us within 48 hours of your appointment, so we can help make things right again for you, just call the salon directly.

What if my pet has fleas?

It is important that our salons remain flea free. So if your pet presents fleas, we reserve the right to treat your pet for those fleas. Your pet will either be given a flea shampoo rinse or a Capstar pill which quickly kill all live fleas. Your pet will then be separated from other pets to lower the chance of further spread. Please note there are additional charges for any flea treatments administered.

My dog is unvaccinated can I still get them groomed?

Unfortunately no, we have a strict 'No vaccinations, No groom' policy in our salons. This is because our salons are a communal area and we couldn't have unvaccinated and vaccinated dogs together. The wellbeing of our customers pets is of upmost importance to us.
