A dog shop with a difference has opened in Aberdeen.
Manky Maggies – on Clifton Road – is a self service dog wash that has taken the place of former barbers Geezers.
Owner Scott Deakin initially was wary of how the plans might be affected by the pandemic – but has now successfully opened the shop for business last week.
The aim is that dogs, who have got muddy or messy after walks, can be taken in for a proper clean if the owners might not have the facilities at home.
Furthermore, the dogs can wear a cotton headband around their ears so that they aren’t stressed by any loud noises.
Mr Deakin said: “My wife owns Smelly Nellies dog groomers across the road and we found that so many people were just looking to get their dogs washed.
“Not every dog likes being groomed – and some hate being away from their owners.
“So what we thought was why not a self service space as something completely different.”
“We know after lockdown what we needed to do moving forward – we also have an outside space to help with social distancing.
“We want this to be relaxing for the dogs and their owners.”
Dog food and snacks are also available.
