Coat maintenance lesson: £10
Are you struggling to keep on top of your dog's coat at home inbetween grooming appointments? Not sure what tools are best suited to your dog's coat type? Then this coat maintenance lesson will be for you! Lasting anywhere between 30 mins-1 hour, I will teach you in this 1-1 lesson what tools are best suited to your dog's coat type, how often and when you should be brushing and combing your dog, distraction techniques and training tips on helping your dog to learn to enjoy being groomed at home, problem areas that are often missed at home, how to spot matting and to see if it can be removed safely at home and the line brushing technique to help remove loose undercoat, dirt, debris and knotts. At the end of the lesson I will present you with a list on the info we have covered in the lesson including a silhouette of your dog's breed and areas labelled with a checklist that require brushing and combing to help you. There are also videos on the Riverview Dog Grooming youtube page that may help you with coat maintenance at home which you can find at the bottom of the HOME page on this website.

Ultrasonic teeth cleaning with electronic emmi-pet toothbrush
*Please note I will need to assess the condition of your dog's mouth, teeth and gums before I can proceed with this service
Deep teeth cleaning (12mm) helping to prevent dental issues such as tar build up, gingivitis, bad breath and tooth loss! Also helps to remove stubborn plaque already existing on your pets teeth. The tooth brush is held on each tooth for a maximum of 30 seconds then the tar is gently picked off. No vibration, soundless and motionless; perfect for the most nervous of pups! £10 per session. If tar is particularly thick on the teeth then it may require a couple of sessions to completely remove the plaque
Puppy introduction- This is 2 sessions introducing puppy to having their haircut although most puppies respond so well they often only need 2 sessions before their first haircut. The first session consists of a bath and blowdry with nail clipping and ear cleaning, introducing the sounds of the clippers and scissors. Regular playtime and toilet breaks will be included so puppy isn't too bored and finding it too stressful. The 2nd session requires the same services as the 1st session but will also introduce trimming with scissors around the face, head, ears and, depending on how puppy copes with the groom so far, feet (may start with feet instead of face depending on how puppy has coped so far) and clipping the armpits, sanitary areas and around the toepads. If puppy has coped ok with these 2 sessions then we can move on to having their very first haircut as their next appointment. If puppy still isn't happy with clippers then we will book some more sessions to desensitize them before having their first haircut. Lots of positive reinforcement and natural meaty treats will be used to create a positive experience for them as well as a 10 minute play session after each groom. Prices will vary depending on breed. If cross breed then prices will vary depending on mix, coat condition, size and possibly behaviour.
