Dog & Cat Grooming: The Grooming Table salon is a modern, spacious, open plan salon, providing maximum comfort for both you and your pet.
No cat or dog is ever left alone in our salon, all pets are continually accompanied from the time they enter the salon until the moment they leave.
We provide first class, professional dog and cat grooming, as well as pet grooming advice.
The Grooming Table is the first, Axarquia based, dog grooming parlour of its kind – based around the idea that pet owners can, if they so wish, stay with and observe their dog or cat being Professionally Groomed, or alternatively, drop your pet off and do some shopping or enjoy lunch and collect him in an hour or so later.
We treat every pet as if they were our own and we are pleased to say customers regularly comment on how calm their pets are during and after their grooming session.
Wendy is UK professionally qualified and holds over twenty six Canine Breed and Feline Grooming Diplomas and Certifications.

Home needed for Sheba: Can anyone provide a loving home for my beautiful ‘house cat’ Sheba? She is a Siamese mix. She is vaccinated, micro-chipped and has her own passport. She has many Siamese traits like sleeping, looking out of windows, ‘talking’ and being played with. I am returning to the UK to care for my elderly parents. However there is a ‘no pets’ policy in the flat where I will be staying, hence this appeal. If you can help I would be very grateful.
