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 tidied. Troublesome ears are cleaned using the aptly named K-9 Miracle Ear Elixir.
For smooth-coated dogs (e.g. Staffies) this is all you’ll need, so check out the “Bath and Dry Only” line of our price list. For longer-haired dogs, you have three options to choose from…
The healthiest choice for double-coated breeds like Collies, Huskies, Pomeranians and Shepherds; your dog’s pale, fuzzy undercoat will be raked out and the coarser, more colourful top-coat carded to remove dead hairs, leaving the live hairs strong, vibrant and silky smooth.
Checkout the “Bath, Dry and Deshed” line 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.

Hand-stripping is the traditional method of grooming wiry coated terriers, some hounds and the back-coat or “jacket” of spaniels and setters. Usually, it is only appropriate for dogs who have always been groomed this way – or never been groomed before – as using clippers on these breeds changes the texture and composition (and colour!) of their coat making subsequent stripping difficult (although some can have their coat restored if you wish).
Georgina loves hand-stripping – so often the price is the same as a Full Trim. However, it may alter depending upon your dog’s temperament and the condition of his coat, so give us a call to discuss it further.
(a) All dogs leave our salon with a little bow or hair clip to make them feel special. Let us know if you have any colour preferences, or if not, Daniel will make a gorgeous choice just for your pup!
(b) Daniel also offers free nail painting to short-haired dogs or long-haired dogs having their feet clipped short. He uses safe, specialised doggy polish made by PAWZ, and has a wide range of colours available. If you’d like him to do this for your pooch, just ask!
