About me

My route into dog grooming is a bit unusual. I graduated from De Montfort University with a 2.i in Law and Human Resources and went on to have a successful career in HR.  I moved to York in 2010 with my husband for a lifestyle change. I had always wanted to run my own business but doing what I never really knew.

I took a short evening course in grooming my own dog, a Miniature Schnauzer called Riber, at Askham Bryan College which I enjoyed so much I went on to complete my City & Guilds Level 2 at Moulton College in Northampton and both the Level 3 Certificate and Diploma at the prestigious and highly regarded Look North Training Centre in Keighley.  In 2020 I attained a Certificate in Cat Grooming at the Welsh Grooming Academy.

I moved into my current premises in 2014 investing £10k in state-of-the-art grooming equipment including a Hydrobath which cleans and massages the skin. 

I offer the following services to clients; Dog  & Cat Grooming Consultations, Puppy Grooming, Hand stripping, Bathing and Drying, Styling to the Breed Standard, Asian Fusion Styling, Ear care, Claw trimming, Ultrasonic Teeth cleaning, Cat Grooming both wet and dry, and lots of After Care Advice.

I've been grooming for seven years and get a real sense of achievement if I can turn a dog around from one who is nervous about being groomed to one that is happy to trot into the salon. All grooms are by appointment only so I can give your pet the individual attention that they deserve. Once a month a Saturday is set aside to solely groom Cats. Our salon software sends appointment reminders to help you organise your day and ensure your pet receives their groom on a regular schedule.

Opening times are:
Monday to Friday 9:00 - 17:00
There is plentiful free parking directly outside the premises and an on-site cafe.

Call me on 07947 838560 to discuss any aspect of grooming or call in to browse our range of quality foods, treats and accessories.

    I thoroughly recommend Loretta. Alfie was nervous when he first met Loretta as he had a bad experience with another groomer. For ages he wouldn’t even walk through the door! He loves Loretta and is very comfortable getting groomed. She always give an amazing cut to both our dogs and I love the fact it is only the two of them being groomed.
