About the Sallywags Team

Sally James Sdc

Owner

I started Sallywags from home in 2007. With the help and support of my family, Sallywags salon was opened in Northwood in August 2009.

My passion was to grow the business so that every dog still felt like it was coming into my home. This has given us over 2,000 wonderful dogs to groom.

We are very much a family business and the Sallywags staff and the dogs that come to us are welcomed into it with open arms.

I have 5 dogs of my own who I absolutely adore. Standard Schnauzer, Florrie. Boxer, Bruno. Oreo, the maltese and two delightful Parti poodles. Zorro and Peggi.
