There is no need to face the bitterly cold weather and venture out to a dog groomer - Just Dial A Dog Wash. The mobile heated grooming parlour is run by Wendy Sander in the back of a transit van and has been travelling across Luton since the 46-year-old set up the franchise six months ago.
Wendy, originally a hairdresser by trade, said: "I love pets and really enjoy dogs so I thought I'd do dog grooming. I like to get out in the community and assist people. A lot of people who are elderly or disabled cannot get out to a dog groomer."
Dial A Dog Wash offers canine customers a cut, wash and blow dry, grooming, nail clipping or hydrobaths and there is also a shop on board the van. Wendy's van is one of 70 Dial A Dog Wash franchises across the UK.
