Our story

In 2009 with the arrival of our new dogs Betsy the Boston Terrier, a rescue dog from Chesterfield RSPCA and Pippa our re-homed Miniature Schnauzer we took care of all their needs with a passion but when it came to their grooming needs we hit a brick wall!

We Struggled to find a grooming salon which ticked all our boxes and we were not prepared to settle for second best! We were looking for groomers with professional, industry recognised qualifications and a clean, contemporary salon environment where we felt very comfortable leaving our dogs! We were looking for a First Class grooming salon but even second class proved elusive.

If we were going to find what we were looking for we realised we would have to create something special and bring quality to grooming ourselves.

Through hard work and dedication, in late October 2013, we opened our purpose built luxury spa salon and shop in Chesterfield, and in October 2014 became a Professional Grooming Training Centre in association with ‘Heavenlyz’. Then, in July 2016 we became part of the elite few grooming salons to be awarded the Grooming Gold Standard by SAI Global Independent Auditors.

Sadly we said goodbye to our beautiful Betsy April 17th 2019 age 12. She had the most wonderful life, she made our lives wonderful. Pippa is now almost 15 years old. We’re making sure her last memories are the best in her life!
