Dog Grooming & Dog Grooming Training in Fakenham
Welcome to The Dog House Fakenham
Have Your Dog Groomed
Located in Hempton near Fakenham, The Dog House offers a full range of dog grooming services for all breeds and sizes of dogs. We groom to full breed standard or can create a practical pet groom of your choice. We will complete a health, temperament and grooming consultation on every customer’s first visit to us. Our dog grooming team is dedicated and passionate to offering you and your pup the best care and we are all trained to the high professional City & Guilds Level 2 and 3 Diploma standards.
The Dog House grooming studio is fully equipped with the best professional equipment and products and we use high quality natural Wildwash canine shampoos to attend to the specific coat and skin needs of each individual dog.
The welfare of your dog is our main priority. We pride ourselves on caring, calming handling throughout your dog’s grooming experience and will never rush dog grooming. We aim to encourage, train and reassure all the dogs we groom to relax and enjoy the experience, from a puppy’s first gentle introductory groom to elderly dogs which may need extra support or comfort breaks. We also work with many dogs which may have experienced stressful grooming elsewhere, helping them to overcome fears, often with very rewarding results.
The Dog House has a very loyal customer base in the Fakenham area and well beyond with customers choosing to use our services from across Norfolk and indeed other neighbouring counties. Check out some of our many lovely Facebook reviews.
From a ‘while you wait’ nail clip to a full bath and style our fabulous team of mad dog lovers will aim to make you and your dog feel at ease. Should you prefer to pop in and use our self service dog bath we will guide and help you if we can.

We are a forward thinking business, passionate about dogs and constantly strive to deliver the very highest standards of professionalism. Our ‘On the Job’ placements offer the ultimate in a flexible and affordable alternative to other recognised training offers.
How do our ‘On the Job’ Dog Grooming Training Placements work?
Successful applicants will be invited to join us for a period of 80 days to work alongside our team learning professional dog grooming skills. This is not a traditionally structured training course; it is a holistic approach to training and an opportunity to learn ‘on the job’ in a real working professional dog grooming business. Our primary business ethos is the care and welfare of every dog we are entrusted to groom. In conjunction with this we offer exemplary customer service, a high standard of all aspects of dog grooming and attention to detail.
Dog grooming is not an easy job; it can be both physically and mentally demanding. Throughout the placement you will have the opportunity to shadow our team in all aspects of our daily work. You choose how much you wish to learn from your experience by choosing your own attendance, effort levels and contribution. Once a placement has been agreed you may attend every single working day between 9am and 5pm if you wish or alternatively you may decide to attend just 1 day a week, it’s up to you.
Dog Grooming Services
Whether you’ve had a bad dog grooming experience, got a new puppy, are new to the area or just fancy a change, we are here to listen to you. We ask that you allow time for a short consultation, especially on your first visit to us, so we can discuss your dog’s grooming needs. We can groom to breed standard or to a style of your choice, offer advice and explain fully the grooming style and procedure we decide upon so there are no unexpected shocks when you come to take your dog home. We work efficiently at all times but with patience, care and comfort breaks for your dog when needed.
