KNUTSFORD grooming packages
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 Knutsford grooming team will be on hand, to show you around and book you in for your pet’s grooming appointment.
Find out what’s included in each of our carefully constructed grooming packages. These can be tailored depending on your dog’s requirements and current coat condition. We use natural grooming products on all pets and our groomers are qualified to City & Guilds Level 3. Find out more about our packages below.
The Knutsford Cut
Our Knutsford Cut is a full grooming session. Your pet will be bathed in a Wildwash natural shampoo tailored to their coat type, they’ll then be fluff dried and brushed out. They will then be styled to breed standard or whatever you feel like. We also include nail trimming and ear cleaning, before being finished with a beautiful hand-selected fragrance.
With all those lovely walks round Bowdon, the lazy afternoons in the park or rolling in the mud by the Bollin, the Bowdon Bath is the perfect cure for those mucky pups. Your dog will receive a bath in Wildwash natural shampoo tailored to their coat type, followed by a fluff dry and gentle brush out. The Bowdon Bath includes a hygiene clip, feet and nail trim and ear cleaning. You will be delighted with fantastic they look and beautiful they smell.
THE HALE HANDSTRIP
Wire-haired breeds will often require a technique know as hand stripping to remove the dead, outer coat. This will allow a new harsh wire coat to grow back. Hand stripping maintains the colour and texture of the coat compared to clipping which dulls the colour and softens the hair. The hair is removed by hand or using a stripping knife. Before each hand strip, we bathe your pup in shampoo tailored to the coat type and then fluff dry. We finish with a nail trim, ear cleaning and full body styling.
DUNHAM MASSEY 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 of your choice. The dog will then be styled to a breed standard or personality cut by our professional stylist. All Mere Makeovers include a nail trim and ear clean, before being finished with a beautifully selected fragrance.
Any dog trainer will tell you that the earlier a puppy is exposed to a new experience in a positive manner, the better they respond. Our Timperley Tiddler package is designed to do just that for pups under 4 months old. We start with a mild puppy shampoo, followed by a gentle brush off and then a fluff dry. We also include a hygiene clip and a trim of the feet, face and nails. The experience is fun and relaxed, giving your pup plenty of love and 100% attention. The session is finished with a spritz of delicate cologne and a cuddle.
