About me

I guess my route into dog grooming is a bit unusual. I graduated from De Montfort University in Leicester with a 2.i in Law and Human Resources and went on to have a successful career in HR predominantly in HVAC and Automotive Engineering. After several public sector roles, I moved to York in 2010 with my husband Steve 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 at a local college which I enjoyed so much I went on to complete my City & Guilds Level 2 at Moulton College in Northampton and then Level 3 Certificate & Diploma at the prestigious and highly regarded Look North Training Centre in Keighley. It took two years to find my current premises, that was 5 years ago and I've never looked back. My husband Steve joined me in the business in 2016, so we're a small friendly salon. Our focus is on quality and not quantity.

I offer the following services to clients (small or medium size dogs only); Puppy Grooming, Hand stripping, Bathing and Drying, Styling to the Breed Standard, Asian Fusion Styling, Ear care, Claw clipping, Teeth cleaning, After Care Advice.

Opening times are:
Tuesday to Friday 9:30 - 17:00
Saturday 9:30 - 13:30.

Call us on 07947 838560 during opening hours, to discuss any aspect of grooming or call into the salon 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.
