“Dedicated to Teddy 1984-2002”
This business has developed into a unique Dog Grooming Spa after many years of hard lessons, learning curves and synchronicities. The Funknfur brand began in 2008 and has moved from various locations to finding itself in View Royal since 2011. This was the best move for Funknfur and it has seen tremendous growth. With the growth we have made some amazing friends both furry and human. Funknfur now provides a one of a kind salon service emphasizing a unique cageless environment. We keep the energy calm in the salon to provide an excellent experience for both the pet and owner. By using an online booking system and grooming software its keeps staff with the animals providing exemplary customer service. We also provide all-inclusive grooming packages and a la carte services for your pet and a boutique providing unique grooming equipment and accessories.
The next Chapter is beginning on June 1, 2017. The Funknfur brick and mortar location closes and moves its business into the mobile “Dshaggin Waggin” by Funknfur. The reasons for our change is to give better service and quality. The mobile adds less stress for the pet, owner and the groomer which equals a win win for everyone. We hope to see our clients in the Dshaggin Waggin and experience the new direction of our business.
