Today we had the pleasure of meeting Cooper, the 16 week old Bernese Mountain Dog! He came in for his first puppy groom – as you can see he is still very cute and fluffy, but now knot free and free of malting hair. It is great to have puppies groomed not only for this reason, but also to get them used to the grooming process from a young age. Give us a call at 1300735597 to book in your fur-baby!


We love your dog!

Thinking of getting your dog groomed but worried that they are too old? Worry no more – here at About Town Dog Studio we love to work with any kind of dog! Puppy, elderly, injured, you name it. All you have to do is let us know of any specific needs your dog may have and we will be happy to accommodate them :) Give us a call to have a chat or book in now! PS – check out Penny, one of our favourite elderly friends, doesn’t she look great!


New Year

    Happy New Year to all! Wow – time is flying by, almost February already. The heat isn’t faltering though and your fluffy pooch would love a hair cut to keep them cool, clean and knot free! Give us a call now to book in… it will be Mad March before we know it!



The team at About Town Dog Studio would like to wish all our customers a very merry Christmas, and a wonderful New Year! Give us a call to book in for Janurary as we are filling up quick in the hot weather. Looking forward to seeing you!
P.S. one of our very happy furry customers, Harry, would also like to say Happy Christmas :) Look at those pearly whites!



WOW! Check out this beautiful and rare white schnauzer that we had the pleasure of clipping last week at our Rostrevor studio. The customer was thrilled with his lovely clip and we were very excited to work with such a special dog!


Car laws for your furry friend

It might not be common knowledge, but there are actually some rules and recommendations in regards to travelling with your pet.
Despite not being illegal, it isn’t advised to let your dog travel in your car without a restraint. RAA recommends using a specifically designed harness that clicks into the seatbelt, or putting your dog in a secured crate. This is very important for keeping your dog safe, just as seatbelts are for us humans.
We know that many of your dogs love to stay close to you, but it is actually illegal to drive with an animal on your lap. As well as the obvious distraction that it may cause you as the driver, it is also a dangerous seat for the dog to be in in case of an accident – steering wheels and airbags in the face don’t sound fun! Breaking this law can cost you $176 and a very embarrassed dog.
Another important one is the use of utes – if you are transporting your dog in the back of your ute the dog must be secured either by a crate or a lead attached to the vehicle to ensure that they can’t jump or fall out of the tray. If you get caught you are looking at a $105 fine!
As you can see there are a few important things to remember when it comes to car transportation with your dog. No one wants them to miss out on the fun so treat them to a harness or crate and save them a seat on your next road trip!


We love dogs of all sizes!

Pictured are four Old English Sheepdogs – yes, they are quite big!
Georgie Girl, April Rose, Delta Blu and Sophie Louise love coming to visit for their regular appointments, and the team here loves when they come in. These beautiful coats are maintained by grooming every 5 weeks to prevent matting and keep the hair clean – plus this prevents too much hair floating around the house as we brush out all of the malting hair. Have you got a big dog, a small dog or something in between? Give us a call and we will book you in!


Warmer weather is on its way!

Can you feel it slowly starting to get warmer? Your dog can too – winter is almost over which brings us to a new season full of doggy
haircuts! Bring your furry friend in for a spa day or get prepared to come in the next few weeks by making sure they are brushed
regularly to prevent matting. We can’t wait to see you!
