At Diva Pets, our grooming sessions are designed to keep your pet
looking and feeling their best. We also aim to make the session an
enjoyable experience for your pets by allowing them the time they need
to become comfortable with the groomer and the experiences they will
encounter with us.
A Typical Grooming
Session for a Dog at Diva
Grooming at Diva Pets
always begins with a thorough brushing. This
removes mats and tangles, dislodges dirt and excess loose hair, helps
deter external parasites and promotes healthy blood flow to the skin.
Brushing also feels really good to most pets and allows them to get
comfortable with their surroundings and trust their groomer.
Next the groomer will
move on to trimming paw hair and clipping nails.
Trimming paw hair allows your pet to move around more comfortably by
keeping their paw pads fully exposed so they have better grip on
slippery surfaces (like tiles). It also allows groomers and owners to
easily monitor the health of the dogs paws and quickly detect any signs
of abrasion, infection or parasites.
As dogs nails grow
continually, much like our own, they need to be cut
every week or two to ensure they don’t press on the floor, split on
rough surfaces or even grow round back into the toes, all of which can
cause discomfort and become painful if not dealt with.
The ears are then
cleaned and excess hair in the ear canal is gently
removed. Maintaining your pets ears is very important as a build up of
wax or hair in the ear can lead to infections and ear mites.
Now it’s time for a
bath. At Diva Pets we have a wide range of only the
best shampoos and conditioners available today to get the most from
your dogs coat as well as deal with many skin problems and external
parasites. Our most popular shampoo is Chris Christensen’s ‘Day to
Day’, a mild shampoo designed to maintain any coat type or colour. For
dry coats we would also recommend a series o conditioning spa
treatments to bring your dog's coat to the best condition possible.
Diva Pets groomers use
specially designed ‘turbo dryers’ to quickly dry
your pets coat, right to the skin, without removing the natural
moisture that protects the coat. The high air speed of our dryers also
prevents tangles from forming in the coat during drying.
Once the coat is dry,
your dog is treated to a second brushing to
“fluff” the coat and prepare it for any required cutting or styling.
Finally the groomer will trim your dogs coat or set a new style. There
are many different styles available for all breeds, some of which focus
more on easy maintenance for rough and tumble dogs, whereas others
focus more on beauty for the really pampered pooches. Before your
grooming session, your groomer will discuss your and your pet’s needs
to identify the perfect style to suit your little Diva.

career, she decided to enter into a field where her life-long passion
for animals could be fulfilled. Pet Grooming was the ideal choice as it
not only enabled her to work with animals but also accommodated her
love for creativity.

knowledge in Show Grooming, Creative Grooming, Canine Health,

grooming, it only serves to strengthen her love and admiration for
Dogs. Today she is the proud mother of 7 beautiful dogs.
The wellbeing of animals
is one of Jo's major concerns. She is actively working towards the
creation of a local animal foster system and future shelter
development. She is also an active advocate against animal abuse,
neglect, and unsanctioned breeding. "Education is the key to
eliminating the cruelty towards animals today." she repeats as a
testament to her commitment for a better care standard for all animals.
