Professional Grooming

Chelsea, with her fur-child Jasper

Meet our Groomer Chelsea (with her pooch Jasper).

Chelsea studied for her grooming qualification at Dog Diversity in Melbourne (Feb 2020) – this involved a full month of intensive, extensive & professional training.

ALL dogs, entering our premises MUST be vaccinated. This is a legal requirement of ours.

Grooms are booked online where you can provide specific information/instructions about your grooming requirements. (A picture is also handy for Chelsea if you have a specific groom in mind). Chelsea will always call to discuss or clarify instructions (if necessary).

Grooming requests can be ‘standalone’ (ie. dogs dropped in for the groom) or booked as part of Boarding or Daycare.

NBKC choose premium quality shampoo & conditioners for our grooming sessions. The products smell lovely, and linger for a long time. Of course, if your dog has allergies, we will be guided by you as to the best product for their care (some customers bring their own).

Availability

GROOMING services are available Monday & Tuesday (subject to Chelsea’s availability).

PAMPER options are available on any day of the week (during opening hours).


Prices

The prices below are a guideline only, time taken for each session can be affected by the behaviour of the ‘canine-client’.
