About Doggie & Moggie

Where pets come first

At Doggie and Moggie, we go beyond simply grooming; we believe in a holistic approach to your pet’s care. We offer a comprehensive range of services and products to keep them happy and healthy, from nose to tail.

We work with pet owners to provide the very best care for their animals. Our groomers take the time to get to know you and your pet, understand each animal’s unique character, and provide the tailored, holistic care they deserve. 

At our York salon, we use state-of-the-art grooming equipment and high-quality Italian shampoos, carefully matched to best suit your pet’s coat. Our facilities include a temperature-controlled hydrobath with massaging action to penetrate the coat and stimulate the skin.

Healthier pets, healthier planet

Here at Doggie and Moggie, we are very choosy about the products we use in the salon and stock in our shop.

We believe that when it comes to health, nature knows best, and that looking after your pet doesn’t have to cost the earth.

All of this is why we always aim to:

Avoid products which use unnecessary harsh chemicals

Support British brands wherever possible to reduce transport miles

Reduce our use of single-use plastic in the salon

Stock the most responsibly-sourced, minimally-processed, nutrient-rich pet foods we can find

Work with our suppliers to encourage them to continuously improve their practises and ‘pass it down the chain’

Help our customers to reduce their pet’s carbon footprint with initiatives such as our in-store terracycling for pet food containers

Regularly review our practices and suppliers to ensure we continue to meet our own high environmental and ethical standards.

A safe and secure environment

Our dedicated, air-conditioned salon has been custom built with your pet’s comfort and safety in mind. Pets are seen on a one-to-one basis to minimise stress and allow groomers time to bond with each animal.  Cats are groomed by our experienced professionals in our dedicated cat grooming room.

Our Team

Loretta Spyers-Ashby

Owner, Operator & Groomer

Loretta came to dog grooming in 2010, leaving behind a successful career in HR to pursue her dream of owning her own business. 

She began grooming Riber, her Miniature Schnauzer, at evening classes at Askham Bryan College. From here, she went on to complete a City & Guilds Level 2 at Moulton College in Northampton. Loretta then attended the prestigious Look North Grooming & Training Centre in Keighley to gain her City & Guilds Level 3 Certificate and Diploma. Home of the British Grooming Team, Look North offers the very highest-standard of training in the industry.

In 2020, Loretta added another string to her bow, earning a Certificate in Cat Grooming at the Welsh Grooming Academy.

As a passionate, dedicated groomer, Loretta continues to attend seminars and courses to develop her skills even further.

Dog Grooming: An Introduction Askham Bryan College

“I've been grooming for almost a decade 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.”

Hannah McLeod

Grooming Assistant

Hannah joined Doggie and Moggie on her first work experience placement while studying Animal Management at Askham Bryan College. 

It's probably safe to say she enjoyed her time with us here, as she chose to come back for her second placement and has now joined us officially as part of the grooming team.

Alongside her work in the salon, Hannah will begin studying towards a City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming at the College of Animal Welfare, Leeds later this year.

“I'm so pleased to be part of the Doggie and Moggie team having fallen in love with all the lovely dogs that come into the salon."
