Doggy beauty treatments help raise charity cash
DOGGY beauty treatments are helping the Whitminster Teckels animal charity raise valuable cash to pay for the care of unwanted pets.
A grooming service kicked off last month, offering a bath and blow dry and a clean up of a dog's ears and nails.
The service is not just about looking good in the park, it can also offer important health benefits for dogs.
Trained groomer, Laura Dalton, has five years' experience under her belt, and has had some unusual requests from owners.

"Some dog owners have asked for their pets to have their fur dyed or their nails painted," she said.
"It is up to them what they go for, but grooming is good for the animals and makes them feel and look better.
"Keeping fur knot-free is important, as well as keeping ears clean from infection."
