Changes to Absolutely Animals (07/06/2023)
We’ve got some future changes we are very excited about. More information will come in the upcoming weeks.
We’ve also revamped our website to make it more mobile-friendly. Please do give us your feedback on Facebook or inside our salon. We’d love to know what you think.
Dog grooming is the heart of our business, and we are committed to making sure every pet comes out looking their best with a spring in their step.
We work with the customer to get the best possible results. Our groomers are open to talking before the practise takes place and are highly trained and qualified in the art.
We require bookings for all appointments. More information can be found before making an appointment. We have CCTV in operation in reception, so you can always see the grooming taking place.

Cat Grooming is our other heart of business service. We dedicate two members of staff to this to make sure every cat comes out as desired as possible. Handling cats is a little more difficult, but they, in general, are much more self-sufficient and independent than the average dog.
We will discuss with the customer what their ideal result is before any grooming takes place. We tackle all matts and knots and provide a clean, fresh haircut. Dogs might be man’s best friend, but we still love our feline friends.
We require bookings for all appointments. You can also view the CCTV in reception to see cat grooming taking place, keeping in mind it takes place in a different room from the dog grooming.
