Hello and welcome.
I’m Sonia the owner of Happy Tails.
Happy Tails is based in Cheslyn Hay in a newly refurbished dedicated salon which is adjacent to my home.
I have kept and loved dogs for many years, so from the the moment your dog comes into my dog parlour and till they leave they will be pampered and groomed on a one to one basis.
Visit us and find out about all our range of pet grooming services.
We will take the utmost care of your furry friend to give him or her a relaxing grooming and pampering session.
After working in various salons I was unhappy with the production line method that was imposed, resulting in time restrictions on each pet.
So I decided to open Happy Tails and adopt a different approach; based on the dogs well-being as opposed to profit.
I will spent as much time as needed with your dog, if he or she is nervous or anxious I will not rush them along as this will only lead to an increase in their nervousness or anxiety.
I am fully qualified to City and Guilds level 2 in dog grooming with 4 distinctions and 4 passes.

Dogs cool off by panting and by air circulating around and through their pads. Long hair impairs that ability, so a quick trim or cut can improve this circulation and allow your dog to be cooler.
Crusts in the corner of your dogs eyes can cause sores leading to discomfort. These sores can only be seen after removing the thick crust when grooming or after a wash.
Long and overgrown nails force your dog to walk on the sides of their pads. In the long term, this can lead to arthritis in the legs and hips and also contributes to splayed toes potentially causing infection and pain.
Matted hair causes PAIN for your dog by pulling on the skin causing sores creating room for moisture which causes infection and fungus.
Regular cleaning and grooming of your dog can help identify skin and health issues. When identified in the early stages these issues can prevent expensive trips to the vets.
Your dogs ears have hair deep within the innner ear canals that need to be trimmed and cleaned every 4-6 weeks otherwise there is a risk of inflammation and infection.
Clearing your dogs sanitary area is good hygiene. This guarantees that your dogs excretions and stools will not be stuck and carried in doors.
Hair between your dogs pads and toes causes pain, this results in your dog licking their feet creating knots between their toes and potential infection occurring.
Some breeds have under-coats that build from shedding within. The outer coat and inner coat become thickly padded and thick mats are extremely difficult to remove.
Bathing your dog without first brushing creates small tight knots referred to as pain knots. These type of knots make your dog grooming experience a painful and unpleasant one.
When your furry friend arrives at Happy Tails, they are pampered and groomed to a high standard on a one to one basis.
I only pamper and groom two dogs a day, this helps if your furry friend is anxious, nervous of prefers to be alone.
Once finished they can, weather permitting, play in a safe enclosed garden until they are collected.

Hi Sonia, just want to say thank you for the great job you do on Teddy. Before you, no-one could really get it right, or how I wanted him to look, and now I’ve found you I would never go anywhere else. Thank you for your patience with him. He’s now looking super cute and cuddly. See you soon
