UK styled Dog & Cat Grooming: Are you frustrated with your family pet being forcefully and roughly handled and all their fur being unsympathetically and coarsely shaved off, yet their feet and head fur being left long?
If so, the answer is to contact Wendy at:
The Grooming Table salon: 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 desire, stay with and observe their dog or cat being groomed, or alternatively, drop your pet off and do some shopping or enjoy lunch and collect him 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 experience.
Wendy is UK professionally qualified and holds over twenty six Canine Breed and Feline Grooming Diplomas and Certifications.
Prices start from as little as 20€
