Grooming

As highly trained and experienced groomers, The Dapper Yapper caters for all breeds and all fur types. We offer a comprehensive grooming service that will leave your cuddly canine clean, trimmed and completely pampered.

Regular grooming is essential to your dog’s health. It removes dead hairs, dirt and dander from your dog and helps prevent tangles and painful matting. It also stimulates the natural oils in your dog’s fur, which will spread across the coat leaving it with a glossy and healthy sheen.

Regular grooming sessions provide a hands-on process that can help identify potential problems that may otherwise go unnoticed by owners such as unusual lumps or bumps, skin conditions, ear infections, etc. The highly trained and expert groomers here at The Dapper Yapper know what signs to look out for and should they suspect anything will share these issues with you.

Boarding

At The Dapper Yapper we have converted an old pig house and hay barn into spacious and comfortable boarding kennels. We have 6 individually heated kennels with two large kennels, ideal for a family of dogs. We have generously seized day runs so your precious pup will not spend all day in the kennel.

During your dog’s stay at The Dapper Yapper we guarantee that they will be looked after as one of our own, and every dog returns home having been kept safe and comfortable for the duration of their stay. Every dog in our care will also be brought on a daily walk to ensure that they continue to get enough exercise. We have created a new gravel path from the boarding kennels to the old Tralee to Limerick railway and offer a varying length of routes from 4k to 10k.

In order to accept your dog at The Dapper Yapper Boarding Kennels, he or she must be up to date on all their vaccinations and kennel cough. We respectfully require proof of vaccination upon arrival at the kennels.

Hear From Our Clients

Our little pugalier has visited Dapper Yapper twice for grooming and has come home preened and pampered to perfection with her wee accessories. Can’t thank you enough for the recent groom to make sure everyone in the house was at their best for the party! We will see you soon again.

- Donna Doherty

Had Luna our Maltese in today for her first grooming with Dara. She came home looking like a new dog. Totally satisfied with the service & have no problem recommending him.

- John Culhane

Wonderful place to bring your pets for grooming. The attention they receive is amazing. Dara is a dog lover and treats all his guests as his own.

- Bridget Elliott

Left our 2 doggies for 3 nights. They had a ball of a time. Were happy out. They loved it. Dara was brilliant with them. Delighted to have the Dapper Yapper so near to us. Fantastic service.

- Tilly O’Donnell

Thanks for taking such good care of my little Yorkshire terrier Coco! She came home after 4 days with Dara in great form. She was clearly well looked after and had a stress-free stay at The Dapper Yapper.

- Sorcha Ní Shúilleabháin

Dara and his mother are fantastic! We went to Thailand for two weeks, safe in the knowledge that our two babies were being really well looked after. It was so nice receiving photos of them on their daily walks too. Our dogs were very happy and spotless when we collected them. We definitely won’t go anywhere else from now on.
