PAMpered Pets Information

Ruckie after Pampering!
Grooming:

Your dog's coat will be examined to determine the correct shampoo, treatment etc then prepared for bathing.  After drying (Please note we do not use cage driers) and a massage his coat will be cut and styled accordingly. Nails will be trimmed, ears cleaned and whatever other treatments you require will complete his pampering session!

 

Dog Psychology:

If you’re concerned about any aspect of your dog’s behaviour or just feel you’d like to learn more about these amazing animals, please contact Pamela about a behavioural consultation. After assessment you will be provided with a plan to work to and together, we can help you and your dog understand each other. Dogs rarely come alone and it is quite amazing how we can effect change in their behaviour by changing our own! All you need is an open mind and a willingness to challenge any pre-conceived ideas. Your relationship with your dog can be transformed and troubles can be eased away. I don’t claim to be a ‘dog whisperer’ but do use gentle, holistic methods of training for both you and your dog.

For over 20 years Pamela has rescued collies and worked with Social Services as a Rehabilitation Officer with Blind People, children and of course Guide dog owners. The transference of these skills, experience with collies in particular and a suitable environment mean we can offer help to some of the many Collies who find themselves in difficulties. These dogs have special needs, are often misunderstood and are probably the only breed regularly seen advertised as ‘free to a good home’ in the local papers. Of course, they can end up in happy homes, but sometimes bad experiences and their highly sensitive, intelligent nature gets them into trouble. Collies are loyal and uncomplaining by nature and therefore often neglected. They can also come to grief within families with children because of misunderstood instincts.

We aim to offer a quiet, loving environment from which they can rest and re-cover and, if possible, be rehabilitated and re-homed with owners who have also been re-trained!

Pamela uses natural and organic products wherever possible, along with massage, TTouches, aromatherapy and flower essences. Older dogs in particular benefit from gentle relaxing massage whilst being dried after a warm shower - they often fall asleep! Young and exited dogs are calmed with the aim of making the grooming experience an enjoyable one, some dogs are going to need the services of a groomer for many years, so getting the Psychology right is important.

Reiki treatments will be available soon (late 2013)


All dogs are treated individually and this obviously takes time so no rushing please!
