Work Hard,
Play Hard

Cage-Free so your pup can relax in a cozy bed or play with our toys or outside in our secure garden before, during or after grooms


Your dog will have 100% of our attention and will never be left unattended. Both the salon and out attached garden are secure for your pup to explore worry free!

Building Confidence 

I will dedicate my time to puppies, nervous or reactive dogs and help to slowly introduce them to the grooming process. This may require regular extra intro sessions and 'homework'.

Alisha Fry

About Me

My name is Alisha and I’ve always been passionate about animals. I grew up around animals of all kinds and have always completely devoted my time and attention to them. Because of this I understand the patience and care they need and I am confident around all kinds of animal, all shapes and sizes. 

It has always been a dream of mine to work with dogs as I feel I can build an amazing bond and connection to them. When I was 14 years old I started to volunteer at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary and developed great skills and knowledge on the care and welfare of animals, as well as caring and showing affection to animals who needed it most. I fell in love with the industry, so much so that I went on to work full time at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary when I left school. While there I achieved a City & Guilds qualification in Animal Welfare and gained 2 years of professional experience in the industry. My work there focussed mainly on small animals, cats, equines and farm animals. 

I left longing to work with dogs, but unsure which direction to go. I started working part time as a kennel hand, solely caring for over 20 dogs. Working part-time gave me the flexibility to really think about hat I wanted and eventually go and get it! So I did! I finally took the leap and attended one of the best grooming training centres in the North-West. While there I underwent training, many practical assessments and a formal written examination. I proudly achieved both my City & Guilds level 2 and level 3 qualification in dog grooming with a distinction, and passed my written exam with a merit. I also received First Aid and business training. Alongside completing my training, I started volunteering with an amazing, award-winning groomer with over 20 years experience who was kind enough to share her knowledge and give me ongoing support. 

Now I have made the decision to start my own business; Cut & Cuddles Dog Grooming! With 3 years combined experience in animal care, City & Guilds qualifications in both animal welfare and dog grooming, first aid training and the knowledge I have gained along the way, I am excited to begin my new adventure into hopefully a long and successful career!

At Cut & Cuddles, the happiness and wellbeing of your furry friend will always be our number one priority! We are located in a relaxed, home-based salon and work on a one-to-one basis; meaning your pet will always have 100% of our attention. This ensures a calm and happy experience so that I can focus on building trust and friendship with your dog! Let's make grooming fun! I have a crate in the salon in case it is absolutely necessary, however your dog will be kept cage free. We have plenty of toys and beds in the salon to play and relax in while waiting for collection! I have the equipment to groom dogs of all breeds and sizes and am completely happy and confident with any breed. I will also dedicate the time to puppies, nervous, anxious or reactive dogs that need a slow introduction to the grooming process and will be happy to work with you, the owner, to suit your needs and schedule. I am fully insured, qualified and first aid trained, so you can rest assured that your furry companions will be in good hands!
