Welcome to Dixie Land Guide Dog Users Online, and Top Dog-2019!
We Dixie Land Guide Dog Users are the South Carolina affiliate of Guide Dog Users, Inc. Our tails are wagging! Due to the amazing response to our Top Dog-Charleston, 2019, our event hotel is booked to capacity and we are no longer taking registrations. Our heartfelt thanks to all of our registered attendees! We can't wait to see you in January!

A friend of the Dixie Land Guide Team highly recommends “Scissors-n-Suds”, owned and operated by Amber McMahon out of her home, located off of Bacon’s Bridge Road in Summerville, SC 843-312-5028.
Amber offers full grooming services, and understands the need for service animals to stay together with their handlers. She takes one appointment at a time, giving each dog her full, undivided attention.
Each dog who comes in gets Shampoo, conditioner, nails trimmed and filed and ears cleaned. As of this posting, Amber charges around $18 or $20 for larger dogs, like Labs, and around $40 for larger dogs also needing a haircut or “shave down”.
Anyone wishing to make an appointment during the week should call at least one day in advance. For Saturday appointments, please call at least one week ahead of time.
This is not a paid advertisement. If you know of a service that you think would be helpful to handlers of guide dogs or other service animals, please let us know!
