At In The Pink, every dog is treated like a Show Dog… because no matter whether yours is a prizewinning purebred or a happy-go-lucky farm hound… he means as much to you sitting on the couch as he would trotting around a show ring.
Georgina is an Internationally Certified Master Groomer, one of less than 30 in Australia. She can turn out a Traditional Breed Trim fit for the Royal, an Asian Fusion makeover to wow the gang at the park… or a simple, stylish groom to tame the fuzz and give your vacuum a break.
Upon arrival, all dogs receive a warm bath using premium products made by Australian show dog specialists, Plush Puppy. Next, their coat is blow-dried, their nails trimmed and their sanitary areas clipped.
For dogs with smooth coats, this is all you’ll need, so check out the “Bath and Dry Only” line of our price list. For dogs with longer hair, you have three options to choose from…
The healthiest choice for double-coated breeds like Collies, Golden Retrievers, Pomeranians and Shepherds; your dog’s pale, fuzzy undercoat will be raked out and the coarser, colourful top-coat carded to remove dead hairs, leaving the live hairs strong, vibrant and silky smooth.
Checkout the two “Bath, Dry and Deshed” lines of our price list.
Have your dog clipped and scissored to the length and style of your dreams!
You may choose the Traditional Trim for your dog’s breed; an Asian Fusion style; a Teddy Bear trim; short-back-and-sides … or something customised to suit your taste and your dog’s lifestyle.
Check the ”Bath, Dry and Full Trim“ line of our price list.
Hand-stripping is the traditional method of grooming wiry coated terriers, some hounds and the jacket of spaniels and setters to maintain the correct coat texture and bright colours. Usually, it’s only appropriate for dogs who have always been groomed this way, as using clippers on these breeds changes the texture of their coat, making subsequent stripping difficult (although some can have their coat restored if you wish).
The cost for handstripping your dog is generally $20-30 higher than the equivalent-size Full Trim, depending upon temperament, coat and frequency of grooming.
