We were both born and raised in Gloucester and met whilst studying at Hartpury College. Later, we went on to study Animal Management and Behaviour at the University of West of England. It was during our time there that we realised we not only shared a passion for animals, but we both had an ambition to run our own dog grooming business. The idea for Ruff 'n' Ready was born.
In June 2013, after months of planning, sleepless nights and intensive training, we eventually realised our dream by opening our salon in the Old Medieval Hall at the top of the High Street in Stroud.
As well as us, we also employ 2 people: Kaya, our skilled groomer, and Leanne, who started with us on reception and progressed to become a skilled groomer herself. Together, we're doing what we all love - delivering grooming services and care of the highest quality to dog lovers and their precious pets.
