Welcome to Woodies Woofers. My name is Mel and I am a self-employed dog groomer with a passion for animals. I started out as a dog walker and have now qualified to a level 3 City & Guilds in dog grooming. I also have a certificate in animal first aid.

I am now available for mobile grooming in your own home within Clevedon and the surrounding areas.
Payment methods accepted are cash, cheque, bank transfer and pay pal.
I have full insurance cover.
I use WAHL and Animology shampoos and conditioners and have options for the following types:

If your vet has prescribed a shampoo then I am happy to use their personal shampoo for the groom.
At Woodies Woofers we promote responsible and loving dog ownership. In the interest of your dog’s health and well being any matting will be removed regardless of the cut agreed. Please see de-matting policy below.
We groom humanely at Woodies Woofers and we abide by the Animal Welfare Act 2006.
When a dog is presented to us in a severely matted condition, it is our policy to shave the whole coat using electric clippers with a close blade. To de-matt would cause the animal tremendous stress and discomfort, often leaving a very thinned and damaged coat. Shaving the coat is quicker and more gentle on the dog. Many dogs are traumatised by unnecessary hours of de-matting, putting them off grooming for life. We consider shaving an act of kindness – should you pet be matted, this will be discussed during your consultation.
A severely matted coat can suffer many conditions:
- Hotspots & sores
- Fungal & bacterial infections
- Yeast infection
- Moist eczema
- Mites & lice
- Urine & faecea scalding
- Eye and ear infections
- Severe itching
Once the coat is removed, the skin can be red due to the lack of air circulation and dirt that has accumulated underneath. Occasionally there are sores or infection, this may need veterinary treatment. Dogs tend to scratch and this may lead to broken skin. If in doubt, please speak to your vet.
I will be more than happy to show you how to look after your dog’s coat.
Please note: our normal grooming charge does not include de-matting dog’s, this may be charged for at an extra cost.
We also ask that all dogs are up to date with flea/worm treatments and their vaccinations. If you wish to change or cancel your appointments please contact us at least 24 hours in advance. Please see our Cancellation policy below.
