Welcome to Shaggy Dog Grooming

We are a professional, family run grooming salon dedicated to providing your family pet with a first class "top-to-toe" makeover grooming session.

Whilst in our shop our policy is to provide the up-most care for your dog and provide an enjoyable grooming session which will not cause stress or discomfort to your pet.

About Us

This is a family business with the sole aim of offering a grooming service with the “personal” touch.

We are based at 393/395 Stanhope Road, South Shields, Tyne & Wear. Tyne Dock metro is a 5 minute walk and there is also a regular bus route which is close by. There is also a parking area outside the salon. For the relevant map, just go to www.streetmap.co.uk and type in our postcode NE33 4TD.

Many owners have stayed during the grooming session and commented about how thorough we are and how they are delighted with the service we provide. Please take the opportunity to read our guestbook!!

Our salon is spacious and equipped with modern facilities. Whilst in our care, your pet will receive personal attention and the grooming carried out with patience and understanding.

Our main groomer/owner, Lynn, is a committed dog lover who endeavours to ensure your pet enjoys being groomed and kisses and cuddles are free! We have fresh water and biscuits/treats available (with owners consent) and there is a secure place for a “walkabout” whilst waiting for collection.

A flea treatment is available which is very effective and non-chemical. Your pet will be bathed with an appropriate shampoo for the coat, massaged, tea tree conditioned and then fully dried. All our products are Kennel Club approved and are of a very high quality. Nails and dew claws are attended to then ears are plucked and cleaned. Then the styling!! Once the grooming is complete, an aftershave or perfume will be sprayed on the coat before going home.

We also offer a Soapy Suds Special should you only want your pet bathed/nail check and offer crèche services, information about this can be obtained from the salon.

Arrangements can be made for your pet to be picked up and then delivered back to your door once the grooming session is completed.

Since the salon opened Lynn has been able to successfully re-home some of her clients because of a variety of reasons, and has a good network of suitable foster homes and “would-be” parents. Placing pets in happy homes within the area is always top priority as this means Lynn and her staff will always maintain contact with the pet, who already know and trust us and always enjoy their stay with Shaggy Dog.
