Owner Chelsie Cadman welcomes all to her new dog grooming salon, which is located within shops at Russel Drive of Malpas.

Named after her beloved Staffordshire bull terrier, Rico’s is a place where pooches of all sizes and breeds go to be pampered. Chelsie has always been a lover of animals, as from a very early age she was introduced to a wide-range of pets within the family home.

After graduating at Usk College six years ago, Chelsie went to work for a local dog groomer, learning her trade and perfecting her skills. Two years ago, she completed her training to become a fully qualified Dog Groomer.

“I’ve always wanted to own a place of my own – it’s been a dream of mine for a very long time,” Chelsie told Voice.

“We opened the doors on April 9 and we have been pleasantly surprised with the response. Thank you to everyone who has shown their support and used us.

“Every dog who pays us a visit has a photo on our chaise longue once they are finished being groomed, their picture is then posted on our Facebook and Instagram pages for all to see.

“Dog owners love seeing their pets looking their best, and so do all of our members on our pages – it’s been a huge hit.

“We’re an appointment only salon, but we are able to take walk-ins if it’s not too busy and we can easily book an alternative time if it is.

“Prices are dependent on the size and breed of the dog, as no two pooches are ever the same!”

There are never more than three dogs within the premises at any given time, and if your dog is not comfortable with other dogs, Chelsie suggests either being first-in or last-out to limit exposure. The salon is open from 9am until 5pm Monday to Saturday.

As her business grows, Chelsie is hoping to offer a wrap-around service where she’ll be able to pick up your dog from your home.

So, if your beloved dog is in need of a prune, why not treat them to Voice’s Business of the Month this June?
