Sacha is our full-time Groomer at Rags and Bert's. She is fully qualified with oodles of experience as a stylist and has worked with all breeds of dog, large and small. Sacha's passion for grooming extends to entering and winning grooming competitions and styling celebrity clientele! She knows how to perfectly tailor her services to you and your dog's needs. 

Before we groom your dog, we will chat with you to understand your lifestyle and the lifestyle of your dog. We will work to create the right style that is manageable for you, whether that's a simple pet trim or a more intensive breed standard cut. The length of time it takes to cut or trim your dog will all depend on the breed, size and style required. 

Our preference is to use traditional methods of grooming which we feel give a much better finish, that's why you'll see a lot of scissor work and a lot less clipper work. We can offer both modern and more traditional coat styles for your dog.

FAQs

My dog is nervous.
We understand that some dogs can be apprehensive when it comes to grooming. We will always work to ensure a calm environment with minimum noise. And because we only work on a 1-to-1 basis, you won't find a lot of other dogs in the same room. 

My dog doesn't like machine driers.
You will often find us towel drying the dogs as we never use drying cabinets as these can be stressful for the animal. We do have hand blasters available and we always work from a low, slow setting so as not to alarm your dog. If we find your dog is uncomfortable with that, we will stop using the blaster and towel dry him instead.

My dog has sensitive skin.
We offer an extensive range of shampoos and will use the one that best suits your dog's skin type.
