“Dedicated to Teddy 1984-2002”
This business has developed from a unique Dog Grooming Spa after many years of hard lessons, learning curves and synchronicities. The brand began in 2008 and has moved from various locations to finding itself in View Royal since 2011.
The next Chapter began on June 1, 2017. The brick and mortar location closed and moved its business model into the mobile “Dshaggin Waggin”. The reasons for the change is to give better service and quality. The mobile adds less stress for the pet, owner and the groomer which equals a win for everyone involved.

DILLY (Sidekick and Security)
Intelligent, sassy and full of energy is the description of Dilly. Travelling sidekick in the Dshaggin Waggin that loves to meet new dogs everyday! She’s not fond of any type of Doodle…..not sure why! She’s moral support for her sometimes stressed out groomer. She brings kindness, compassion and healing into the van. On the flipside, she will let you know when your coming too close to the van, hence her security guard status. She is gratefully rewarded with the odd chew stick and balls to take home with her.
