We are Erden and Robbi Atilgan and we have been running Eds & Tails Dog Wash in Pendle since June 2013. If you're curious about the name, Erden s Turkish but his English name is 'Ed'. Ed grooms, while Robbi (aka 'the tail') manages the business.
Ed trained with All Breeds Grooming Academy in the West Midlands and holds a City & Guilds qualification and is fully insured to groom your dog. Robbi has extensive customer service experience. She assists Ed with larger dogs and offers an ultrasound teeth-cleaning service as well.
the Eds van operates in a 10-mile radius of Nelson (BB9) - roughly Barnoldswick to Accrington. Prices are based on distance and time, and the average groom costs £35-40. We groom no more than 5 dogs a day so your pets get our undivided attention.
As groomers Eds & Tails follows guidelines laid down by the Animal Welfare Act 2006. Our motto is "humanity over vanity" - we want your dogs to look good, but it's how they feel that matters most to us, so we try to make grooming as stress-free as possible.
There are some dogs we cannot groom - giant breeds are just that bit too big for the bath, and larger guarding breeds such as German shepherds and Akitas are not always comfortable in a confined space with a stranger. Also, for similar reasons, we don't groom dogs that live outside.
But we do specialise in dogs that get anxious in salons and dogs that need some extra TLC - we have an open-door policy so you can watch us grooming your dog. And our set up is perfect for owners who, for whatever reason, cannot get to a salon.
