Dog Grooming Derby, Services from Smarter Wags

Dog grooming in Derby that all puppies and pets deserve. Smarter Wags Dog Grooming in Derby provides high quality, expert, professional dog grooming services for all breeds, on a one-to-one basis, with most full dog grooms lasting between 2 and 3 hours.

We are fully qualified and insured, and do require your dog to be up to date with annual vaccinations, so as to prevent the spread of diseases and viruses. Our dog grooming prices are based on size, breed, service required and condition of the dog – please see below for our current dog grooming prices.

Small breeds: dachshund, miniature poodle, chihuahua, Yorkshire terrier, etc.

Medium breeds: border terrier, bichon frise, cocker spaniel, Cavalier King Charles spaniel, cockapoo, cavapoo, springer spaniel, etc.

Large breeds: husky, retriever, German shepherd, large labradoodle, etc.

For some breeds, in particular certain terrier breeds, then hand stripping – the removal of the dead hair from the coat – is the best dog grooming method. This does, however, take quite a lot longer, so incurs a higher cost.

If you have any queries or questions regarding our dog grooming services, please call our dog grooming Derby based experts today and we will be happy to discuss your pet grooming needs.
