The groomers officially opened its doors for business yesterday (Monday, November 6).

Charlotte Mosely, owner of Hugo and Ted, said the decision to open a groomers under the umbrella of her current business spawned from the continued growth and success the business has had since opening in Worcester.

She said: "Since we opened in Worcester it has been amazing, we love being here and we have been lucky enough to have some brilliant customers.

"When petite paws only moved to its new premises, we decided to launch our own groomers in the space.

"We have room for two fully qualified groomers, alongside a range of our own branded shampoos and grooming products."

Petite Paws Only opened at Hugo and Ted in February, but recently completed a move to Silver Street. 

Hugo and Ted first opened in Worcester in May 2022, with Miss Mosely saying the business has grown a good customer base.

She said: "We have a huge online presence and we are very active on social media, so a lot of dog owners know us for this.

"Not long ago we actually had some tourists come to our store here in Worcester and say they made the journey to see us whilst on their trip to the UK which was very surreal.

"We have a wide range of products and cater for a large customer base online so it is brilliant that we are attracting people to our store."

Products Hugo and Ted specialise in include summer cooling tees for dogs, fleece jumpsuits, jumpers, luxury knitwear as well as bags, beds and homeware and a selection of natural treats.

The business was named after Charlotte Mosely's two dachshund dogs.
