The grooming of every dog, cat and rabbit requires an individual approach which is why we have developed our own grooming process here at The Pet Retreat. We offer a consultation to understand the kind of style that works best for you and your pet’s lifestyle, and to get to grips with any recurring skin or fur problems. Our styles range from personality trims to breed standard show cuts, whilst we also offer a range of treatments to improve your dog’s scent and comfort.

If you have any questions about the salon, our head groomer Maria will be on hand, with apprentice Sarah, to show you around and book you in for your pet’s grooming appointment. You can find out more about our expert dog groomers in Cheshire on our team page.

Peover Puppy Pamper


Your puppy’s introduction to grooming is very important to us at The Pet Retreat. We believe they should be handled with care, given plenty of love and 100% of our attention. The Peover Pamper begins with a bath in a mild puppy shampoo which is kind to their skin. It is then followed by a gentle brush and fluff dry. Included is a hygiene clip and a trim of the feet, face, and nails. The session is finished with a spritz of delicate cologne and a cuddle.

Tatton Towel Down


The perfect cure for those mucky days spent at the park. Your dog will receive a bath in shampoo tailored to their coat type, followed by a fluff dry and gentle brush out. The towel down includes a hygiene clip, feet and nail trim and ear cleaning. Your dog will leave smelling beautiful and looking fantastic.

The Knutsford Cut


Keep your dog looking their best with a visit to the Pet Retreat Grooming Salon.

Our Knutsford Cut is a full grooming session; bathing in a Wildwash natural shampoo tailored to their coat type, fluff dry and brush out. Your pup will then be styled to a Breed Standard or Personality Cut to meet the requirements of your lifestyle. We also include nail trimming, ear cleaning and finish with a beautiful hand-selected fragrance.

High Legh Hand Strip


Hand Stripping is a technique used on wire-haired breeds for removing the dead outer coat, allowing a new harsh wire coat to grow back. This maintains the colour and texture of the coat as opposed to clipping which dulls the colour and softens the hair. The hair is removed by hand or using a stripping knife.

This groom includes a bath in shampoo tailored to the coat type, fluff dry, a nail trim, ear cleaning and full body styling.

The Mere Makeover


At the Pet Retreat, we believe your pooch should be pampered from nose to tail. The Mere Makeover is a Knutsford Cut above the rest and includes two spa treatments chosen by you, with advice from the stylist. The dog will then be styled to a Breed Standard or Personality Cut, including nail trim, ear clean and is finished with a beautiful selected fragrance.

Our Dead Sea Mud Bath restores the coat's natural beauty whilst a 10-minute full body massage leaves your pup completely de-stressed. The essential oils & minerals help prevent broken hairs & eliminate impurities & toxins, giving an overall deep cleansing experience.

Using 100% natural ingredients (safe enough to lick!) sweet almond oil, frankincense and kanuka help to reduce inflammation, heal and moisturise your pup's pads.
