A NEW dog grooming service is set to open in Wheelock Street and the manager is excited to get started.

Barking Barbers Dog Grooming will be opening inside The Pet Shop, in 58 Wheelock Street, on Saturday, April 20.

Rachel Merrick, founder, said: “It is getting a little bit stressful now. I have been a dog groomer for a few years with a different company but I have never run my own business.

“The open day is just about giving people a chance to come and see how the salon has been set up and to get to know me as well.”

The open day runs from 10am to 4pm and refreshments will be available for visitors.
