Hi, my name is Robyn and I am the owner of Hugs and Kisses Dog Grooming. You might guess by the name of my business that I am absolutely mad about grooming and dogs. I am a professionally trained dog groomer with loads of patience and enthusiasm and a love for all our four legged friends.
My professional home based salon is fully equipped and is a peaceful, calm environment for those who can become anxious during their groom. Mobile groomers who work road side and busy grooming salons can both be noisy environments which can be stressful for your pet. The only noises your dog will hear at Hugs and Kisses Dog Grooming will be our relaxing music, the noises associated with their own groom and the birds chirping. I take the time to discuss your expectations and then work with your dog, tailoring the experience to meet both your and your dog’s needs. You will know they have enjoyed their visit by the way they leave with their tail in the air wagging.
Hugs and Kisses Dog Grooming Salon has been certified by the IPG, International Professional Groomers Inc, to be CSP, Certified Salon Professional and CPG, Certified Professional Groomer. These certifications were attained after undertaking practical and theoretical assessments. To clients this certification provides assurance that your pet will not only be professionally groomed but also will be safely handled and restrained by a professional with First Aid knowledge and canine behaviour and handling expertise. At Hugs and Kisses Dog Grooming, I also believe in ongoing, never ending training. One-on-one refresher courses with Master Groomers, attendance at Grooming Competitions and Seminars, it doesn’t stop. My ongoing professional training means that I can assure you of the very best.
I would love to discuss your grooming needs with you, so
At Hugs and Kisses Dog Grooming, we believe that taking care of your dog’s skin and coat is an essential element of their groom. Did you know that dogs have very fragile skin which is why they need their coats to protect their skin. At least 12% of your dog’s body is comprised of their skin. Well maintained skin and coat go a long way towards keeping your dog healthy and happy. Before your dog is bathed or groomed a complete analysis of their skin and coat is performed. We have a selection of speciality shampoos available for matted coats, shedding coats, dry coats, dirty coats, sensitive skin, itchy skin, the list goes on. After determining your dog’s skin and coat type, the appropriate shampoos will be used. There is nothing more important than maintaining the condition of your dog’s coat. Always after shampooing, your dog’s coat will be conditioned to ensure that moisture is sealed in and the skin is protected. This minimises coat becoming dry and hair becoming brittle and breaking which puts fragile skin at risk.
