It’s a Happy New Year for The Beached Dog!

Neil and I decided several weeks ago that we were ready for a little business make-over. And boy could we not be happier with our decision to mix things up to create a more fun and creative business model. If you’ve been in to visit us since the New Year, you’ve already seen the renovations to the lobby. What better way to start a new year than to give yourself a fresh new look. Not only did we spruce the place up a bit, but we’ve also made some BIG changes to how we operate and so far our clients seem positively responsive! We sure hope so because these changes are all about providing the absolute best customer service and grooming experience for our clients and their beloved pets.

So what’s new at The Beached Dog?

New Grooming Schedule

  • We are proud to now offer our clients the quality and convenience of start-to-finish grooming appointments Monday – Friday.
  • Neil will book his appointments much like a regular hairstylist. When you call to book your appointment, we’ll schedule your dog for a specific drop-off time as well as provide you with an estimated pick-up time based on the service requested.
  • Because Neil now works on dogs one at a time from start-to-finish, we are able to greatly minimize the amount of time your dog is required to stay at the salon. Not only is this typically more convenient for our client’s schedule, but this also provides the dogs, especially anxious dogs, with a more relaxing grooming experience.
  • Furthermore, this new grooming schedule creates a more calm and quiet grooming salon that is more enjoyable for our clients and the dogs… and for Neil, too!

Book Early and Save

  • We all live busy lives and it’s easy to let Fido get a bit too stinky or shaggy before remembering to book his next grooming visit. Now you can book early at check-out and know Fido will stay looking sharp! We’ll even send you home with an appointment card to post to the fridge as well as send you automated email reminders.
  • Not only will you save time and keep your furry friend on a regular grooming schedule, but you’ll receive a $5 early booking discount as well! Just our way to say thank you and reward our loyal clients.

Homemade Dog Treats for Sale

  • Baked fresh every Sunday in small batches.
  • Made with lots of LOVE from our kitchen to yours.
  • We use 100% all-natural ingredients that are both nutritious & delicious! We use such simple wholesome ingredients that even our human friends can eat them. In fact, Neil and I taste every batch ourselves. And of course our own furry children are more than happy to assist us with regular sampling. {Smile.}
  • No added preservatives! Our treats are meant to be enjoyed by your dog right away! The treats do have about a one month shelf life, but come on… You know your dog deserves fresh delightful treats every week!
    • Peanut Butter Drizzles – If your dog loves peanut butter, well then these are the treats of their dreams! Crunchy peanut butter treats lightly drizzled with a peanut butter glaze. These treats are sure to keep their tails wagging!
    • Sweet Potato Chips – Perfect for dogs with a sensitive stomach or in need of extra fiber in their diets. Only one ingredient… dehydrated sweet potatoes!
  • Visit our Bakery & Boutique page for more info and check back often to learn about our current treat specials.

New Website and Blog

  • We even updated our website and will also be posting regular blog articles and announcements to keep all of you dog-lovers in the know of what’s trendy in the dog-world and what fun events are happening in the area. We’ll also share useful information such as grooming and pet care tips.
  • We’d love for you to subscribe to our blog and email list so you can always stay updated on new posts we share and any new specials we’re offering.
  • You can also follow us on your favorite social media sites including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We love connecting and engaging with the amazing pet community here in Charleston!


Wow, that was a lot of exciting new things to tell you about. Thanks so much for taking the time to read about our updates. We hope you all are as happy about these updates as we are!

With love and gratitude,

Heather & Neil
