Covid 19 Grooming Update

We are delighted to confirm that our grooming department will partially reopen from this Thursday 21st May. Due to the current social distancing restrictions, things will be a little different as we will have fewer groomers and grooming assistants working and we have a backlog of appointments to catch up on.


If you had an appointment during the time we were closed or an appointment already booked due in the next few weeks, please wait to hear from us before coming along, we will be working hard to catch up with our diary and will go through the new procedures when we call.


We know lots of dogs will still be struggling before we can get you an appointment so the essential drop in for issues such as nail trims will continue but will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 5pm and 6pm. Unfortunately, these will still be the only times we can do drop in nail trims but hopefully we will be able to revert back to our usual system soon.


Grooming Services

Here at The Dog Barn, we aim to make being groomed a calming and enjoyable experience for you and your dog and have one of the finest parlours for dog grooming in Merseyside. We work our hardest to make the grooming department an open, inviting environment that your dog will enjoy visiting and spending time in, being pampered and made to look even more beautiful than they did when they arrived! To book any grooming appointments or for more information regarding the services we provide, just call the shop and we’ll be happy to help with any questions you may have and to book your dog in for a pampering session! We are open 7 days a week and offer late night appointments on Wednesdays. During busy periods the diary does fill up fast so call ahead to avoid disappointment!


Full Grooms

Price varies by breed

A full groom is just that, verything ine session. A bath, dry, nail trim and styled to your preference whether that's to breed standard or to your own requirements.

Hand Stripping

Price varies by breed

After years showing terriers we have lots of experience in hand stripping.
This method is common in the Terrier and Gundog breeds and maintains the colour and texture of the coat ny removing coat from the root leaving room for new hair to grow through rather than clipping or cutting which just shortens the length of the coat. We do not usually bath hand strip areas straight after hand stripping as this technique leaves open pores once the hair has been removed. Bathing afterwards can sometimes cause an infection in the hair follicle.

Just a bath

Small to medium dogs £15
Larger dogs £25

We'll give your dog a good scrub is professional soothing shampoo and do our best to make sure even the most nervous dogs have a calm, relaxing experience and come out looking, feeling and smelling fresher than ever.

Nail Trim


There's no appointment needed for a nail trim, just call in during our grooming times although there may be a short wait if the groomers are a little busy. *Please note, our grooming department is closed on Tuesdays*
