For full Grooming Terms and Conditions please read our Grooming Contract.  Here are a few important highlights.

  • New customers are asked to pay a deposit upon first booking before the appointment will be confirmed.

  • Starting prices for a groom are based on the understanding that your dog’s coat is well maintained between grooms. End prices may vary depending on the condition of the coat, the manageability of the dog, over-size or over-weight dogs will take longer to groom.

  • If we discover fleas or ticks during the grooming process, we will re-bath the dog in flea treatment and an extra cost will be applied due to the extra time taken and treating the dog and the salon for parasites. You will be notified.

  • You will maintain your dogs coat in between regular grooming appointments. A dog with extremely matted coats will incur a de-matting fee of £15.

  • De-matting/shaving of matted hair may cause patchiness, irritation, redness, and hair loss and Tail Tapping Antics will not be held liable. Consent to remove the matted hair is on this understanding. No dog will ever be subjected to stress or discomfort. De-matting during a routine groom is limited to 15 minutes maximum, only possible for minimal matting. For severely matted coats a shave off is the only humane solution. In accordance with the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

  • Payment in full will be made upon collection of your dog. Tail Tapping Antics has facilities for accepting Debit/Credit card payments. Unfortunately we are unable to accept cheques.

  • Once your appointment is booked, we will turn other customers away under the assumption that you will be using that time slot. As a result, Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be charged a cancellation fee of £20 and you will be asked to pay up-front when booking your next groom.

  • Grooming slots are booked by appointment. If you are over 15 minutes late, it will be considered a no-show and you will have to re-schedule the appointment. This will incur a re-booking fee of 50% of the groom. This is because starting a groom late means every dog there-after will be started late too and this is unfair to other customers.

  • If an appointment is not kept, the full groom fee will be charged for the slot and you will be asked to pay up-front for future appointments. Failure to do so will result in refusal of any future grooms.

  • Puppy Introductions and First Grooms for any age dog require patience and understanding. It will take more time than a regular groom so we use gradual steps to introduce the dog to the process over a number of appointments to minimise any stress. Please let us know if this is required for your dog.
