About us – the scotgroom way

At Scotgroom our lives revolve around dogs: their wellbeing; their training; their grooming; and their showing. Everything we do is geared towards achieving excellence in what we do. But we believe that true knowledge and experience is only of value when it can be passed on to others, and for many years now that's exactly what we've been doing.

Scotgroom is situated in the town of Carluke, mid-way between Edinburgh and Glasgow, not far from the market town of Lanark. We are easily accessible from both major motorways in Scotland, the M74 and M8.

We offer a wide range of services to our clients, some of whom travel long distances to have their dogs groomed to breed standard. A high percentage of our clients are regulars and have been with us for many years.

The services we offer include:

  • Show dog preparation

  • Deshedding
  • Bathing, drying and dematting
  • Styling

All our grooms include ear and nail services. We do not charge extra for these services, as we feel that they are essential to the dog's wellbeing and health.
