Meet the Founder

Chris - Owner

As an adoring dog parent of Roo the Cockapoo, who is much to do with the philosophy behind the concept and ethos at Springfield, it had to be a place that we would be happy to leave our precious little girl, which quite frankly is a tall order, in fact almost impossible. I’m very proud of what we have achieved so far. We have an amazing team to deliver the promise of loving, caring, stimulating and safe day care you can rest assured is second to none.

Our Team


Centre Manager

Nikki joins the team with a background of dog care and welfare. She spent her early years at the family vets practices in South and West Yorkshire where she gained a wealth of knowledge specifically looking after the many dogs that spent time at the practice and the 7 German Shepherds the family owned over her formative years. 



Zoe began her grooming journey by completing her City & Guilds at the well renowned training centre Look North under the tutorship of Zoe Duffy LCGI.

She then built up a successful mobile grooming business covering York and surrounding villages, gaining a loyal client base and a reputation for being a knowledgeable ,calm and caring groomer with her dogs and dog parents alike.

With over sixty five 5* customer reviews spanning a four year period on Facebook and Google Zoe continued her training and  learning through professional seminars and training courses in and around Yorkshire by some of the leading groomers in the UK.

Zoe prides herself with providing a grooming service that will always put the needs of the dog first. Taking the time to gain the confidence of all the dogs that walk through the door, with the end result being a happy, relaxed and healthy dog, happy to keep coming back time and time again.


Assistant Groomer – Level 2 qualified

Liz has a huge empathy with animals. Her kind and gentle nature means all dogs under her charge are cared for as if they were her own. She’s super excited at the prospect of developing her skills and gaining her level 3 qualification at Springfield.
