About Us

Well-groomed, happy pets is our business



Vanity Fur

Where pets love to get clean!


We have been grooming pets since 2007. Every member of the Vanity Fur team has trained and worked hard to have a career in pet grooming. We look forward to see our regulars and work closely with pet owners to ensure we put the health and wellbeing of our pet clients first.

Our team continue to update their skills and knowledge by attending grooming shows and competitions. We only use the best, eco-friendly products for our treatments and are always on the look out for new developments in the industry that we can bring to our Spa and to your pet!



Shadi has 10 years experience as a pet stylist. He opened Vanity Fur in 2007 and has watched his clientele grown year on year. He won Southend Small Business Of The Year and went on to win Essex Small Business Of The Year and a Good For Leigh Award proving he has helped the quirky, individual shopping experience of Leigh On Sea.


Shadi is from Egypt and often returns to visit family and to help out at Egyptian Animal Rescue Centres in Cairo. He has taught animal workers to help local dogs and cats in need of grooming for health reasons. He is rewarded by seeing some of these pets go on to find new homes in Cairo.


Shadi has owned dogs and cats for many years and currently has one very old rescue dog Ella from a Greek Island, and an ancient rescue cat called Fluffy.


Leigh On Sea is a unique fishing port on England’s East Coast. With its cockle sheds and fine pubs and restaurants it is a go-to destination for local people and tourists visiting the coastline.

Leigh On Sea has many wonderful park areas, beaches and nature reserves for walking your dog. Take a trip to see us at Vanity Fur and we will tell you all the fabulous places to visit!
