The Dog Always Comes First
At the Blanchardstown Dog Grooming Salon we provide a professional grooming service underpinned by positive reinforcement techniques. For example we plan regular breaks during every groom to ensure the dog has the best possible experience, by keeping stress levels as low as possible.
If a dog fears the noise of a mechanical clipper for instance, we will use tried and trusted positive methods to help them to adjust gradually. If we recognise that a dog is too stressed at any stage we suspend the treatment immediately and reassess.
Our puppy groom helps familiarise dogs with the Salon environment from the very beginning. The positive reinforcement techniques we apply build good associations so they will have great memories of their visits to the Salon, every time.
We accept all dogs for a grooming assessment, including those with special behavioural needs such as fear or anxiety.
We will always take time to fully discuss your requirements before proceeding with a first booking. We can recommend either a breed standard style or one more suitable for your dog’s, and your own lifestyle.
