Why choose The Dusty Dog?

-I offer one to one dog grooming in a calm and quiet environment where you dog is treated with respect.

-Quiet equipment: both of our dogs are quite nervous, so we have invested in quieter equipment (such as our hydrobath, clippers and dryer) to cater for all dogs and to make the grooming experience as peaceful as possible.

-We have a totally enclosed garden that your dog can explore if requiring a break, or prior to its groom to get used to a new space. We have artificial grass so your dog won’t get dirty after his/her groom but will have a chance to explore the garden and relax.

-We use ethical pet care products on your dog using both Wild Wash and Hownd products.

-I aim to make grooming as stress free as possible for your dog; my main priority is your pet’s health and happiness.


My name is Jo Shire and I live with my partner and two rescue dogs Ollie and Skye.

I work on a one to one basis in the salon (unless there is more than one family dog that you would also like groomed) where the individual needs of your dog are considered as central to their grooming experience.

I am City and Guilds qualified in dog grooming. I am a firm believer in continuing professional development and have attended an accredited canine first aid course together as well as courses in Doodle Grooming and compassionate handling for groomers.

You can find out more about me, our two rescue dogs and the creation of ‘The Dusty Dog’ on the ‘about us’ page.

I am fully insured for dog grooming and dog walking.
