Grooming Advice of the Week
Fleas are a common problem faced by many pet owners, particularly in the warmer months. Although these pests may be tiny in size
compared to our cats and dogs, they can be the cause of common skin irritations and even allergies.
Pets react to fleas like we do to headlice or mosquitos - they drive us insane and their bites itch like crazy! Some pets will even
scratch the bites until they open and bleed, which can often lead to bigger lesions and infections - resulting in expensive
vet bills for you and pain for your pet.
The best approach to fleas is prevention. Regular spraying by pest control is beneficial for your home as well as your pet but a
more hands on approach is required to really get rid of these pesky insects. Some owners find flea collars and powders
These medications can be purchased at your pet supplies store or from your local vet, such as Narellan Animal Hospital.
The medication is applied onto the skin on the back of the neck and is effective for one month per dose.
Our KCs groomers can organise the purchase and application of monthly flea prevention. The cost of this is simply the cost of the
medication which we purchase ourselves for you - so you get the expertise, advice and actual application from an experienced
groomer at no extra charge. It is much simpler than finding the time to purchase the product yourself!
If you have any questions regarding fleas or flea prevention please contact us for more information!
The lovely Brodie - proof Rottis are friendly!
Brodie is one of our favourite regulars from Smithfield; she loves the dryer and refuses to get out of the truck if she doesn't get her dog chocolates!
The gorgeous Buster - a total sweetheart
Buster is one of our regulars from Sadlier and is an absolute cuddlebear. He adores Wendy and hates being separated from his girlfriend (and fellow client of KC's), Bella.
The cute Sassy- she's so tiny!!
Another puppy from Smithfield, this was Sassy's first bath with our groomers and although she was a little nervous at the start; her tail was wagging by the end!
Ollie loves to wriggle! This adorable dog from Eaglevale was booked in with us when they discovered he was too energetic to clip themselves. Ollie was a bit nervous but turned out to be an angel, thoroughly loving his new hair cut.
See you again soon Ollie!
We met this cutie last week and as you can see, Maddie's coat is quite matted. With a healthy dose of patience from Maddie and hard work from our groomers, we soon had Maddie's knots clipped off and her tail wagging. She even gave us some puppy kisses while we were clipping her!
We definitely look forward to seeing Maddie again soon!
Grooming Advice of the Week
On the truck we see quite a few dogs who come to us with matted or badly knotted coats and unfortunately in most cases, a very short clip is required to remedy this.
Your dog's coat is a bit like your lawn, it can quickly become out-of-control if you don't continue with general maintenance.A quick brush or comb every 3-4 days is all it requires to keep your pets coat glossy and tangle free.
A metal toothed comb is the best grooming tool for you to use at home and most dogs adore the attention! Visit any good pet shop and the lovely staff can help you choose the best comb.
If you ever run into a tangle that seems impossible, you can use a little squirt of Pears Detangler for children and work it through slowly, combing little bits out at a time, starting from the bottom of the knot.Make sure you rinse the hair after you have removed the knot and recomb it once dry.
Combing also removes dead hair in those breeds that shed and you will really appreciate it when it comes to sweeping up the hair tumbleweeds in the backyard or vacuuming the house!
Remember, if you have any concerns about tangles in your dog's hair or grooming in general, please call us for dog grooming advice.
Queensland & Northern NSW Floods
Our hearts go out to those affected by the horrendous flooding in QLD and Northern NSW. Our daughter Jessica (a former groomer with KC's) is a Brisbane resident close to the river however she is safe and sound at her house. Jess works in the city in a section which has been flooded and is on her way to volunteer at sandbagging depots in her area. We hope that our Queensland neighbours stay safe and those who have lost loved ones and their homes are in our thoughts.
Hi All! We would love to take this chance to introduce our own pets to you. We currently have 8 dogs (our furry, fourlegged family members), a ferret and even a goat!
Our canine children have come to us all at separate times in the last 15 years and, as we are Rottweiler breeders, it may surprise you to learn that these make up only 2 of our 8 dogs. The other 6 are a variety of breeds and personality and just as special to us.
Border Terrier Roxy Roxy was rescued from a terrible RSPCA-raided house. She is very affectionate but also shy around new people
Our wuppiepuppie, Border Terrier Xander. Xander was our first show dog and adores our grandson Cohen
Our oldest child, our miniature poodle Gizmo. Gizmo is blind and deaf however he still loves playing with the other pups!
Piker the Goat is more like a dog than some of our others! He loves being with Allan and adores mangoes and bananas.
This adorable bundle of fluff serenades us once a month while being blowdried - Muffin literally sings to the dryer, showing an impressive vocal range of howling! She is a gorgeous girl who quite likes her coat being scissored, trimmed and pampered every four weeks; Muffin is always happy to see us!
Gizmo is a very sweet and affectionate client of KC's; he is an only child and, as you can see below, is capable of giving us one of the best 'puppydog eyes' looks that we have ever seen! Can we take him home and keep him, pretty please? :)
