The Pet Retreat

The Pet Retreat was established in 2015. Our first salon opened in Knutsford next to our sister company, Knutsford Veterinary Surgery. Since then we’ve expanded to four salons across Cheshire, including in Bowdon, Holmes Chapel, and Woodford.

We’re also proud to establish ourselves as the most knowledgeable grooming business in Cheshire and all of our staff are professional groomers, trained to City & Guilds Level 3 standard or with equivalent experience, enabling us to know what’s best for your animal every step of the way.

  • We offer a flexible approach to grooming – whether you want a breed style cut or a style to suit your pet’s lifestyle we can deliver
  • We offer cat grooms and small animal grooms, including rabbits and guinea pigs
  • Our salons operate a handy appointment booking service and are open on Saturdays
  • All of our salons are purpose built and use the best equipment available
  • Every member of our team is a professional groomer – trained to City & Guilds Level and all regularly enter grooming competitions
  • We’re part of the Knutsford Veterinary Surgery group which means we add a health focus to all of our grooms
  • We use natural shampoos and treatments provided by Wildwash to offer long term benefits to your pet’s coat health
