The Paddington Pups Grooming Salon


The grooming section is a busy part of Paddington Pups Doggy Daycare all year round. This month I thought I’d take you through what the groomers do in a typical day and what our grooming guests get up to during their visit.

All of our grooming dogs are required to arrive between 7:00am and 8:30am. This hour and a half gives our groomers a chance to have a chat with owners and find out what kind of clip they would like for their dog. If an owner is unsure of what they want, the groomers can make suggestions as to what styles would suit their puppy.

Some owners wonder why we can’t make individual appointments (like a hairdressing salon would). We get all our grooming clients in at the same time so that we can pre-clip them all first. Pre-clipping involves a quick clip of the coat to ... Click here to read more....

A bone a day keeps the vet away!!

Guest Article By Jenny Golsby from the Complete Pet Company

Over the many years of producing the Complete Meal and recommending bones I am still amazed at the number of dog and cat owners that are concerned about feeding bones.
Bones to cats and dogs are about as real as it gets. Bones are necessary, not only do they clean teeth, they provide nutritional value from calcium and cartilage, they create muscle work for the jaw, they help bulk the stool to assist with anal gland problems as well as assist with stimulation to calm the carnivorous animal while chewing. Dogs and cats have a jaw and set of teeth that are designed to rip, tear and crunch. I find nothing better than watching my dogs lie in the sun and enjoy their bone, the whole bone.

Research tells us that periodontal disease effects around 8 out of every 10 ... Click here to read more....

Paddington Pups Price Increase

Please be aware that Paddington Pups will be having a price increase for our daycare and grooming services as of January 1st 2016

We try to keep prices as low as possible and we haven’t implemented an increase for almost 3 years but as rent/wage costs increase we are forced to review and increase the prices of our services.
We have researched competitor’s prices and we will aim to remain under their prices, just as we are now.
We will be offering Day Care Package Deals 1 last time this year prior to this scheduled price increase. These deals will be offered at some point in November.

Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous Earth is a dirt-cheap way of controlling external and internal parasites in your dog. Its very important to only ever use food grade Diatomaceous Earth, as the one for gardens and pool filters is not safe for pets.

Diatomaceous Earth is not poisonous; it causes insects to die by absorbing the crucial oils and fats from the cuticle of their exoskeleton. Under a microscope its sharp edges are abrasive, speeding up the process. This works the same for the internal parasites as it attaches itself to their outer layer causing rapid dehydration and death. All though it is safe to eat, drink and dust through hair, it can cause irritation to eyes if large amounts are in the air.

Within 7 days of being fed both morning and night, Diatomaceous Earth can eliminate roundworms, whipworms, pinworms and hookworms. To get the full effects of the DE it should be ... Click here to read more....
