Soap & Furry
What We Do
Soap and Furry Dog Grooming is a Stamford based, professional salon set-up by City and Guilds qualified Groomer Carly. Being a dog lover, pet owner, dog borrower as well growing up with Rottweilers in the family home, at Soap and Furry we would love to meet dogs of all shapes and sizes.
Why Choose Us
Soap and Furry prides itself on using the highest quality, all natural vegan products; all carefully selected to suit your dog’s coat and skin condition leaving the coat smelling fantastic, whilst caring for their skin.
We don’t operate a one size fit’s all approach; each service is tailored to suit your dog in order to ensure the experience is an enjoyable one for your furry friend.
Animal welfare is our upmost priority so at Soap and Furry we work with you to ensure, as much possible, your preferences are put forward to style the dog to suit your lifestyle and plans.
Grooming your dog is an essential part of ownership, not only to keep their coat healthy and free from matting along with curing & preventing any skin complaints, it also creates a great bond between you and your dog whilst allowing for health checking as you are able to find any ailments much sooner than if you relied on something to stand out visually or a routine vet check-up.
Once you have visited us, we will advise on grooming maintenance you can do at home, what tools to use and techniques to keep on top of their look, including style ideas and how to ensure their coat stays healthy between grooms and an ideal grooming schedule.
Prior to each appointment, you will receive a consultation to ensure your requirements are understood and we can do our best to achieve what you have in mind for your pampered pooch and have them leave tail wagging fabulous.
The icing on the cake, they look fantastic, smell beautiful and tend to leave less hair around.
Perfect for any pup who’s a little bit stinky and in need of a clean, in-between full grooms or a tidy up. We’ll use an all-natural shampoo suited to their coat, followed by a condition (if needed for those with longer/damaged coats), a blow dry before giving them a good brush through. To finish, they’ll get a delightful spray of doggy fragrance!
As with the Brush, Bath and Dry package, we’ll use an all-natural shampoo suited to their coat, followed by a condition (if needed for those with longer/damaged coats), a blow dry and will give them a good brush through. We also tend to their nails, sanitary area and ears and should it be needed, will give a quick trim to their eye area and paws. To finish, they’ll get a generous spray of doggy fragrance.
A full groom encompasses all the elements in the first two packages and carries on where we style the dog to your preference/breed standard. To finish, they’ll get a nice spray of doggy fragrance, which you are welcome to choose when dropping them off, and a hand-made by Carly bow will be added to their collar.
A technique used for dogs that coat does not shed naturally. We’ll achieve a full groom package using the hand-stripping process by hand and using tools.
We’ll take it at the puppies pace, starting off slowly; having a play, cuddle and a few treats to gain their trust and ensure our salon is a place they like to visit. We’ll then take them one step at a time through each element of the grooming process, doing as much as we can each time until we achieve a full groom.
We offer a range of special treatments which can be added to any groom, including a specialist mud de-shed treatment, Anti Stain Facial and a Pawdicure.

Carly worked in the Motorsport Industry for the majority of her life having raced competitively for 18 years herself also running corporate and race events for a day job, she wanted a change to follow her desire to work with dogs, taking a different direction in career all together, setting up Soap and Furry in 2020.
Carly runs Soap and Furry with the help of her in house service tester, Reggie, the Fox Red Labrador.
Newly renovated and using the latest grooming equipment, Carly has built the salon from the ground up to provide the best grooming experience available for your four legged friends.
Our aim, to ensure your dog’s enjoy the grooming experience and want to come back for a visit, keeping them calm, happy and tails wagging from drop off to collection.
We ensure they have time to take in the environment, feel relaxed, enjoy a play with some of our in house toys and, with permission of course, a cheeky treat at the end of the groom!
