Badly Matted Coats
The Animal Welfare Act (Scotland) 2006 provides safeguards against harm or injury caused to dogs. As such, a badly matted dog can be placed in a stressful state or be caused pain if not dealt with properly. Poochini’s policy is that any dogs that are so badly matted will require to be shaved for their own comfort, to allow the skin to breath and for the dog to be pain free. Although this may seem a bit drastic, it is necessary to allow the coat to re-grow and to return to prime condition and is the least stressful and pain-free option for the dog.
All owners will be asked to sign a permission to shave declaration for any badly matted dogs prior to any grooming taking place.
With effect from 1 November 2017, in addition to our current services, we will also be offering the following:-
EXPRESS BATH AND DRY SERVICE

We do not use drying cabinets or cages for the dogs in our care.
