to find, once you realise that the main road through
Cockenzie & Port Seton is NOT the High Street but
Edinburgh Road/Gosford Road/Links Road. The
High Street links Cockenzie Harbour in the west to
Port Seton Harbour in the east. See the map

What slow down?
So much for
slowing down towards an early retirement!
We have just had
our busiest month since Splash started way back in
February 2009, with 155 bookings in August. Not
surprisingly, this also equated to our highest ever
takings in a month. This surpasses our last record
month in May 2015 of 140 bookings.
Seems like the changes made to our booking system
are paying off. Imagine what new younger owners
could do with drive and determination to take the
business further! To all the wannabe/start up
groomers out there: Try matching that working from a
shed, garage or van - that's the difference having a
purpose designed setup and equipment makes...
Monday 24th July
Advance notice of Friday closing with effect from
As part of our
previously announced retirement plans, we will no
longer be open on a Friday with effect from January
2018. Our original plan was to do this in
October 2016 but as we were about to change how our
appointments were booked kept the Friday and made a
couple of extra slots available by staying open 2
The change had a
big impact on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday booking
availability, but oddly - not on Friday. So we
are reverting to our original plan of being closing
on a Friday but will be extending opening on Tuesday
and Wednesday to 7pm closing, which will allow most
regular Friday morning bookings to be accommodated
by moving to early evenings instead.
1st December 2016.
New price list with effect immediately.
Please note that there is no
change in price at the moment. The only
changes on this
price guide concern late cancellations and no
shows, plus we are no longer able to accommodate
extra large (and some large) dogs. Also, our
later opening time on a Friday is now changed to 3pm
18th November 2016. Increased appointment
availability from December 2016
Following on from the
previous news post below: Far from slowing down or
cutting back in preparation for retirement, we have been looking at how
we can INCREASE appointment availability.
We will be restructuring how
we we schedule appointments from the 1st
December. In addition, we have always had a high demand for
Friday appointments, so will be extending our
opening hours to 3pm from 1pm on a Friday.
These changes will allow us to accommodate an extra
6 to 8 appointments per week, putting our
availability up by around 25%.
two weeks before Christmas are almost fully booked
now, as an extra bonus this year, we will be opening in between Christmas and New
Year as follows:
28th and Thursday
29th: 9am to 6pm
Friday 30th: 9am to 3pm
We are expecting these appointments to
fill up quickly, so if you want one, get in touch
soon - don't wait 'till the last minute to avoid
Do NOT try to book or
check availability by email, message or text, You
MUST phone for these
days as they will fill up too fast
to play media ping-pong.
It's always quicker and
easier to book with us by phone
in any case.
November 2016. UPDATED INFORMATION: OUR BUSINESS FOR SALE
AS A GOING CONCERN
A year ago we made it known here, without
advertising anywhere else, that we were ready to
sell our business. We have had a few tentative
enquiries, but nothing concrete in the way of a
serious interested party.
A problem mentioned by one quite recently was, there
wasn't enough time left on the lease. Well,
that has now changed as we have just renewed for
another five years. So we have now updated our
sales brochure (link on the
For many of our existing customers that ask if we
are retiring soon, "not yet", and the new lease
gives us until September 2021 to hopefully find a
