Dog Grooming in Bern Area

Hello

Well, all the resources we need to help care for our dog here in Bern seem to be falling into place, with the exception of one: A dog groomer.

Does anyone have any recommendations? Our dog is a shepherd mix with long hair. I would like for her to be cut quite short without being shaved. A lot of groomers just want to shave her down and call it a day, but I've had a hard time finding a really good 'cutter'. We had one in Lorrach when we lived in Basel but Bern has been slim pickin's

would appreciate any recommendations - thanks.

are you in Bern or in Basel?

I've tried 3 different groomers in Basel for my Schnauzer and they all have one thing in common. None of them like to clean ears or cut nails. I don't know if it's a Swiss thing or if they think that's something vets should be doing or if they're just lazy but it's driving me nuts and it's why I keep looking. If you're in Basel as your location indicates I can give you the name of two places I would go back to for basic grooming and a good doggie haircut, but I'm still not 100% satisfied for reasons indicated.

Good luck on your search!

Re: Dog Grooming in Bern Area

We take our pup here...

http://www.tierferienheim-belp.ch/

They have a hundesalon as part of the business. It is about 80CHF for a bath/grooming, maybe more for a haircut. My dog is a little nervous, but they're very nice to her and she gets a bath, nails, ears done.

They're located right off the A6, Rubigen exit (south of Bern).
