A NEW dog grooming business offering cleaning, plucking, and walking has opened its doors in Harwich.

Barking Mad Harwich opened this morning following a successful at-home dog grooming service. 

Leanne McBurney, assistant manager, said opening a store with manager Joanne Preston was the next stage for the business.

She added: "Where we are situated is right on the seafront and it’s a very good location."

Dry brushing, eye and ear cleaning, teeth brushing, ear plucking, anal glands treatments, nail clipping, and a puppy package for dogs aged under six months will be available.

Dog walking and dog-sitting, where dogs are fed, watered, and walked throughout the day while their owners are away, will also be on offer.

A full groom - including bath, blow dry, trim, nails, ears and eyes - costs between £35 to £55 depending on the size of the dog. 

Meanwhile, puppy packages which further include playtime will cost £20.
