As an email spam reduction measure, please type the following contact address to email us:

But wait, before you email, remember it is ALWAYS quicker to phone for appointment enquiries, as we can tell you right away what slots we have available and offer one to suit you.  It's so MUCH easier than playing email, text or FaceBook message ping-pong!

Please note that it is advisable to make your appointment well ahead of the date you wish, as we are often fully booked several weeks in advance.  Avoid future disappointment and get peace of mind your dog is regularly maintained by block booking regular appointments. To assist with this, you can download an MS Excel® spreadsheet here which you can save and modify before emailing it back to us.

If you are a new or existing customer, please provide comments and rate our service on our Facebook page.  You can also upload a photo of your dog if you wish.

We are very easy 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 below:

Latest Website News:

Friday 1st September 2017.  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 2017.  Advance notice of Friday closing with effect from January 2018.

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 hours longer.

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.

Thursday 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 from 1pm.

Friday 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%.

Since the 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:

Wednesday 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 disappointment.

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.


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 News page).

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 suitable buyer.
