Reader Treats Just For You!


Muddy says: Want a clean, groomed, polished doggy who doesn’t leave a trail of dirt round your house? Shampooch is a City & Guilds Professional Dog Groomer no less and loves nothing more than pimping your pet!

Do you have a mucky pup in need of some pampering or just a darn good wash? Founder of the brilliantly named Shampooch, Tina Blackler is a qualified and fully insured City & Guilds Professional Dog Groomer who is passionate about dogs. She’s also qualified in Pet First Aid (so you know your pooch is in safe hands) and is a certified vet-trained microchip implanter, as this is of course a legal requirement of pet ownership. Her facilities are clean, safe and secure and there’s a garden for the four-legged guests to use should they need to. All her equipment, tools and products are top of the range and she’ll listen closely to your requirements so you don’t end up with a dog you don’t recognise. Tina offers a range of services including Shampuppy packages (getting the puppy used to the surroundings), Emmipet Teeth Cleaning (with an ultrasonic tooth brush that cleans without noise or vibration), grooming clinics with a dog behaviourist, Madra-Mor Mud Treatments for coat and skin, and a collection service in the local area. Tina is fully supportive of force-free grooming so if there is a procedure your dog doesn’t like, she will find a way round it and work with the dog over time to get it used to it. You can either leave your dog with Tina (cuddles and reassurance guaranteed) or stay and chat with free tea, coffee, juice and biscuits, while browsing her dog apparel and herbal pet products.
