HEY LITTLE MONSTERS!
Welcome to Monsters and Co.!
My name is Abby and I am merely the "hands" of Monsters and Co. The real founders are my little monsters: Bobo, MuiMui, Milano, MooMoo and Miku!
Monsters and Co. was created in 2018 to provide fun products for you and your little monsters. This little business started in my living room when I dug out my old sewing machine to make little accessories for my little monsters. This obsession led to the brand you know now!
Being a graduate with a fashion design degree, I know how much waste the fashion industry can create. When creating Monsters and Co, one of the most important thing I wanted to do was to keep our wastes at a minimum. Every product we make are made with 100% eco-friendly fabrics and none of it goes to waste. Even our packaging are 100% recyclable! Saving the Earth never looked so good! 🌏
I love my schnauzers, Bobo and Mui Mui, and have always groomed them myself when I had the chance...but I never really studied it. So in 2020 I decided I want to take the plunge, train to be a dog groomer and expand my little pets business! During my training with Dog's Delight London, I learned the skill of hand stripping and having schnauzers myself, I really wish I learned about it earlier. I just fell in love with the art of it and oddly...I find the process so relaxing and satisfying! I gained my level 2 and 3 city and guilds qualifications in August of 2020 and have been grooming ever since - Best decision ever!!
With the support and encouragement of my amazing friends, family, and mentors, I was able to open my own little salon in 2021 in Muswell Hill, London. Located right on a parkland walk in between Alexandra Park and High Gate Woods and right next to an amazing Doggy Daycare, the Wag Club! From there I was able to continue my dog grooming journey while also being able to sell my accessories both in store and online! I couldn't be more grateful and can't wait to see where Monsters and Co. will be in 10 years time!
From one animal lover to another, thank you so sooo much for stopping by!
Abby & the Monsters
Hello! My name is Katie, thank you for stopping by. Here’s a little something about me and my dog grooming journey!
I grew up around dogs in my family but my love for dogs came from when we adopted our 3 months old Cocker Spaniel puppy, Gemma, in 2007 while my family were living in Tenerife. My family were so obsessed with Gemma that we decided to get her a friend, so we went to our local dog rescue centre in Tenerife to pick out Gemma's new best friend.
I realised I wanted to do my part in helping animals when we arrived at K9 rescue centre to adopt another beautiful spaniel, Chloe. From then on all I could think about was how much I wanted to go back and rescue all the dogs and find them a nice comfy, warm forever home.
In 2013, I received a level 3 diploma for Animal Management at Berkshire College of Agriculture where we studied all different animals including, farm animals, exotic animals and horses.
I knew I wanted to work with animals andI eventually found work in a pet shop before I found my real love for grooming in 2017. I worked with Abby in a grooming salon for around 5 months and in those months we knew we wanted to branch out on our own. So we partnered up and in April of 2022 and became partners in Monsters and Co. We both have such a passion for what we do and want to make our grooming salon the most comfortable relaxing place for your little monsters to be groomed.
My family now has 4 dogs. We have a Sproker, Buddy, a cocker spaniel cross terrier, Rolo. And our latest additions, twin brother Dachshunds Rex and Rio.
I am so lucky to share this experience with Abby and grow our business together and we can’t wait to meet you and your dogs!
