Meet the ambulance driver who pampers people's prized pooches

The Wagg Club in Midhurst was set up by Tilly Holden three years ago because of her love for all animals.

She said: “I have always wanted a job that involved dogs since a young age but chose a different path when I joined the ambulance since a year and a half ago.”

At the Wagg Club Tilly offers anything from a nail trim or a bath to a full groom for all types of dogs.

She said: “I love having the Wagg Club as I get to meet a range of different dogs who don’t always like coming to the groomers, but I aim to make the appointment as stress free as possible so they are happy to return.

“I can understand how hard the pandemic has been on other grooming businesses throughout the first and second wave, it has been super tough.

“I missed a lot of business throughout the pandemic and felt that I needed to play catch up.”
