Dog Grooming

In our grooming salon, 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 a Certified Master Groomer, one of less than 30 in Australia.  So whether you envisage your pooch with a Traditional Breed Trim fit for the Royal, an Asian Fusion makeover to wow the gang at the park, or a simple groom to tame the fuzz and give your vacuum a break… In The Pink is the place for you!

Checkout our Grooming Gallery to see her work!

All dogs arriving at In The Pink receive a warm bath, using premium quality Australian products made by show dog specialists, Plush Puppy. Next, they are blow-dried, dematted and have their nails trimmed and sanitary areas discreetly clipped.

Dogs suffering from aural conditions have their ears cleaned using Lisa Leady’s K-9 Miracle Ear Elixir, which has produced extraordinary results for our most sensitive clients.

For a smooth-haired dog, this may be all you require. If so, checkout the Bath Only column in our price-list below.  For a medium or long-haired dog, you can choose one of two options:

(a) Deshedding Treatment
Have your dog’s pale, fuzzy undercoat raked out and the coarser, more colourful top-coat carefully carded to remove only dead hairs, leaving the healthy hairs intact and silky smooth.

This process is the recommended option for double coated breeds like Pomeranians, Collies and Shepherds, reinvigorating the coat and promoting healthy skin.


(b) Style Session
Have your dog clipped, scissored and/or hand-stripped 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 totally customised to suit your taste and your dog’s individual coat and lifestyle.

Scroll down for prices.

In The Pink also offers free nail painting to all short-haired dogs and any long-haired dogs have their feet clipped short.

We use safe, specialised doggy polish made by PAWZ, and have a wide range of colours available for you to choose from. Your pet will also receive matching ear-bows, ribbons or bow-tie.

If this is something you’d like added to your pet’s groom – just ask!

What is a Master Groomer?

Certified Master Groomer is the highest level of industry accreditation a groomer can achieve.  Achieving it required Georgina to successfully complete four levels of assessment, each of which comprised a combination of written and practical exams, covering all aspects of grooming dogs from each of the 7 breed groups, in addition to mixed-breeds.

Scores of over 86% were necessary to pass each level, and the practical exams were undertaken with a highly trained assessor standing at Georgina’s shoulder for the entire groom!

To maintain her accreditation, Georgina must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and successfully complete annual refresher modules overseen by International Professional Groomers Inc.

So, when you bring your pooch to In The Pink, you may rest assured he is receiving very special care indeed.
