Pampered pooches can benefit from a new dog grooming salon and spa – thanks to a bank’s backing for a new business.
Jessica Elvidge has opened Princess Paws Grooming and Spa in Huddersfield with support from NatWest.
The Lockwood-based business provides general dog grooming services such as bathing and clippings alongside bespoke spa services – including mud baths aimed at rejuvenating skin, facials, glitter spray finishes following washes and natural coat colourings.
Pets can also enjoy a day at the spa as Princess Paws offers full packages with treatments and grooming.
Jessica said: “We know people care about their pets’ wellbeing and we want the spa to be a place where pets can come and get a bit of pampering. “
In addition to pet grooming services Princess Paws offers dental treatments and sells dog toys , collars and leads.
After working as a dog groomer for four years, Jessica came to the decision to open a business of her own to look after pets. She turned to NatWest relationship manager Ian Court for support. He secured funding to help with start-up costs.
Princess Paws opened in March and Jessica is delighted to see her business idea come to fruition.
She said: “Ian has been brilliant in supporting me as I have set up Princess Paws. He has been there when I have had queries and has been a wonderful resource.”
Said Mr Court: “I was delighted to support Jessica and her new business Princess Paws which will no doubt keep dogs in and around Huddersfield looking their best.”
