About Us

Karen Brady O.A DIP.


Allow me to introduce myself, I am Karen Brady, founder of The Grooming Shack where we provide restraint free grooming and home from home doggy day care. I have a love of dogs and strive to provide the best care for your fur baby and have been fortunate enough to turn this passion into a profession.

Dean Brady


I am the Karen's husband, helping to run a family business whilst juggling kids and daytime job. I am passionate about dogs and their welfare, so you can be assured that we have the utmost respect for the well being of your dog whilst they are in our care. Let's not forget the people side of it, organising a big occasion can be very stressful, so we aim to help as much as we can to ensure you - and your pets - have a memorable day.
