The Tom and Toto Dog Spa is opening VERY SOON! Located on our award winning daycare site at White House Farm in Sprowston, Norwich it launches at the end of January 2024!

The Salon will have room for 2 grooming tables, a dog hydrobath, reception area, customer parking, kitchen and toilet facilities.

Tom and Toto Dog Spa allows freelance groomers to rent a table on a self employed basis and offer their services to their own current customers as well as build their business with new customers.
