Come and visit The Dog Shack and try out the salon where dogs are treated with all the love and affection that they would expect at home.
The dog Shack is a one-woman business run by Jenny who after many years of working with rescue animals in a sanctuary, now offers her love for and affinity with dogs to the grooming service.
Having trained within a high-class grooming salon and achieved professional qualifications Jenny has now been running The Dog Shack for several years with many new and returning, satisfied customers. And when you book The Dog Shack you can always be sure that it will be Jenny who will look after your pet.
No matter whether your dog is tiny or huge, whatever its colour or breed , we can provide a full one-on-one service to either breed standards or to your own specific requirements. We offer everything from a simple nail clip, a bath and brush or a full grooming service.
You can relax knowing that your friend is in the best hands. We treat all dogs like our own, we are fully insured and buy and use only the best equipment and supplies. We do not and will not use drying cabinets, preferring always to use traditional hand dryers.
We may take a little longer than some groomers but we make no excuses for this. We strive to make your dog's experience with us as comfortable and fun as possible with toilet breaks and plenty of time for treats and cuddles.
We offer a puppy introduction service at a small cost. This is to get your pup used to the idea of regular grooming. We check and clean eyes and ears, inspect feet and hygiene areas and if necessary give them a light scissor trim. We would not normally use clippers on pups but might introduce them to the sight and sound of electric clippers if they seem suitably relaxed.
In summary: Based in Sutton Cum Lound - Ample parking - Canine first aid qualified - City & Guilds qualified - Fully insured - Appointments to suit clients (even weekends) - Calm, stress free environment - Years of experience in dog welfare - Fully equipped salon - Pick-up and return service available (at a small charge).
We were hoping to have opened The Dog Shack for all grooming needs from the beginning of March 2021 but in line with the latest Government guidelines we are unlikely to be able to offer a full service before 12th April 2021 at the earliest.
However, in the meantime we are permitted to offer a limited service where a pet's health or welfare is at risk. Typical risks include a heavily matted coat, uncomfortably, overgrown nails etc.
We will, therefore, offer a service under these limited circumstances whilst continuing to maintain careful separation from owners and scrupulous hygiene in our premises. So if you are worried about your dog please give us a ring and we will discuss what we can do to help.
