Step 1 - Visual Health Check

At Muddy Mutts, we understand that grooming is not just about keeping your short-haired dog looking their best; it’s also about ensuring their overall health and well-being. That’s why we begin each grooming session with a thorough visual health check conducted by our experienced groomers. Here’s why this step is essential:


  • Skin Condition: We examine your dog’s skin for any signs of irritation, allergies, or infections. This allows us to address skin issues promptly and ensure your dog’s comfort.
  • Coat Health: We assess the condition of your dog’s coat, checking for matting, or any abnormalities that may indicate an underlying health problem.
  • Ears and Eyes: Our groomers inspect your dog’s ears and eyes for signs of infection, discharge, or redness, which can be early indicators of health concerns.

Step 2 - Hydro Bath

We offer short-haired dogs a grooming experience like no other, thanks to our specialised hydro-bath equipment. Here’s a closer look at what your furry friend can expect during their hydro-bath session:
  • Deep Cleaning: Our specialised hydro-bath equipment ensures a thorough cleanse, reaching the skin for complete dirt and debris removal.
  • Tailored Shampoo: We use dog-friendly shampoos suited to your pet’s specific needs, promoting skin health and shine.
  • Massaging Jets: Enjoyable massaging jets relax your dog, improve circulation, and enhance their overall well-being.
  • De-shedding: For short-haired breeds prone to shedding, the hydro-bath helps reduce loose hair, making home maintenance easier.
  • Gentle and Relaxing: Our groomers ensure a stress-free experience, ensuring your dog is comfortable throughout.
  • Healthy Coat: Hydro-bath promotes skin health and a glossy coat by removing impurities and stimulating natural oils.

Step 3 - Shampoo Massage

We take grooming to the next level with our specialised Shampoo Massage service. Here’s what your short-haired dog can look forward to:
  • High-Quality Products: We use trusted dog-friendly shampoos and conditioners, ensuring the health and vibrancy of your dog’s coat while addressing specific skin concerns.
  • Relaxing Massage: Our experienced groomers provide a soothing and beneficial massage as part of the grooming process. This not only pampers your pet but also promotes relaxation, improved circulation, and overall well-being.
  • Complete Cleansing: The shampoo deeply cleanses your dog’s coat, removing dirt, odours, and impurities. The conditioning step leaves the coat soft, shiny, and tangle-free.
  • Skin Health: Our products are chosen for their skin-nourishing properties, helping to maintain a healthy and irritation-free skin.
  • Stress Reduction: The gentle massage helps reduce stress and anxiety in your dog, making the grooming experience enjoyable and comfortable.
  • Personalised Care: We tailor our shampoo and conditioning to your dog’s unique needs, ensuring that they receive the most suitable products for their coat type and skin condition.

Step 4 - Brush & Blow Dry

At Muddy Mutts, we understand the importance of maintaining your short-haired dog’s coat for both their appearance and comfort. Here’s how our Brush & Blow Dry service achieves that:

1. Careful Brushing Process:

  • Loose Hair Removal: Our experienced groomers use specialised brushes to gently remove loose hair from your dog’s coat. This not only reduces shedding at home but also prevents matting, keeping your pet’s coat tangle-free and comfortable.
  • Skin Stimulation: Brushing stimulates your dog’s skin, improving blood circulation and promoting a healthy, irritation-free coat.

2. Gentle Blow-Drying:

  • Smooth & Shiny Coat: After brushing, we employ a gentle and safe blow-drying procedure. This not only ensures a smooth and shiny coat but also eliminates any remaining loose hair.
  • Comfortable Drying: We take care to use the right temperature and airflow, making the drying process comfortable and stress-free for your dog.

3. Personalised Care:

  • Tailored to Your Dog: Our grooming approach is always tailored to your dog’s unique needs. Whether your pet has sensitive skin or specific coat requirements, we adapt our methods to ensure their well-being.
  • Stress Reduction: Throughout the Brush & Blow Dry, our experienced groomers focus on ensuring your dog is at ease, making the grooming experience enjoyable.

Step 5 - Nail Clip & Perfume

We believe that grooming is all about those special finishing touches that leave your short-haired dog looking and feeling fantastic. Here’s what you can expect from our Nail Clip & Perfume service:

1. Nail Trimming Service:

  • Expert Care: Our experienced groomers ensure a gentle and precise nail trimming experience, prioritising your dog’s comfort and mobility.
  • Reduced Discomfort: Keeping your dog’s nails at the right length is crucial for their well-being. Overgrown nails can cause discomfort and affect their posture and gait.
  • Enhanced Mobility: By maintaining optimal nail length, we ensure that your dog can move comfortably and without any hindrance.

2. Optional Perfume Application:

  • Fresh Scent: For that extra touch of pampering, we offer an optional perfume application. This leaves your dog with a delightful and fresh scent, making cuddles even more enjoyable.
  • Dog-Friendly Fragrances: Our perfumes are carefully selected to be gentle and safe for your pet’s skin, ensuring they feel and smell their best.
