Absolute Dog Care is a family business. Our groomer, Ken Smith, has owned dogs all his life. He began working with and training dogs forty years ago. After working as a groomer at Dog Lovers in Blackburn, Ken furthered his knowledge of grooming and canine care by completing a Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services (Specialising in Pet Grooming). Ken understands the requirements of all breeds. He can help you with advice about a variety of topics, including grooming, flea and pest control and treatment for skin and hair conditions. The whole family is involved with training dogs. Ken is the Branch Manager and an Obedience Instructor of a local dog club. With his dog Kaiser, Ken has successfully competed in dog obedience trials and performed in demonstrations at community events and schools. With such a wealth of experience, Ken can offer suggestions about training your family dog.

Advice and Options

We aim to give our customers the grooming service they request. However, this is dependent on the type of dog, type of coat and, most importantly, the condition of your dog’s coat. Please feel free to ask about the range of available options. We can advise you on the best one for your dog.
(See Grooming Services).

We keep a range of top-quality shampoos so that we can match the most suitable one to your dog’s coat and skin condition.

We do a flea rinse while bathing if required; however, this only kills the fleas on the dog. For further protection additional treatment will be required at home.
