Hairy Tail Adventures is Guernsey's premier provider of professional dog grooming, day care and pet services. Give your best friend the preening, pampering and care they deserve.

"Dogs are not our whole life,
but they make our lives whole.

- Roger Caras, wildlife photographer, author and preservationist

Guernsey's Hairy Tail Adventures was founded in 2012, because of the lifelong love of animals of its Guernsey owner and staff. We can take care of all of your dog's needs at our open plan cageless dog grooming and daycare salon where pets are free to play and socialise.

We will treat your pets like family members; all staff are fully insured and trained in canine first aid, while the dog grooming is carried out by a level 3 City & Guilds qualified pet grooming stylist.

Hairy Tail Adventures is regulated by the Pet Industry Federation and is a member of the British Dog Groomers' Association.

Opening Hours

Monday to Friday: 7.30am until 6.00pm
Saturday: 9.00am until 6.00pm 

"No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich."

- Louis Sabin, philosopher and children's author


Many breeds require regular grooming - not just poodles! - and puppies should be introduced to a grooming routine as early as possible (although they must have had all their vaccinations before coming into contact with other dogs).

Whether your pet requires hand stripping, a full show trim or just a bit of a tidy up our City and Guilds qualified groomer can help. Dog grooming is not just about making your pet appear and smell better either, there are other benefits too:

  • Decreased chance of health problems
  • General cleanliness and comfort for the dog
  • A closer bond between dog and owner
  • Reduced chance of parasite infestation
  • Can help improve a dog’s behaviour
  • Keeps coat healthy

Not only does our dog grooming keep your pooch looking and smelling fabulous on their visit, but we also stock everything needed to keep that million dollar feeling beyond the salon.

We have carefully selected a range of quality clothing and accessories for your best friend - colognes for freshness and jackets for warmth - and can offer a comprehensively researched range of dog food. All of our products are made from natural ingredients and will be chosen to match your dog's needs.

All breeds are catered for - please feel free to ask. 

"Every dog must have his day."

- Jonathan Swift, author and priest

forgot little puppies.
