This month, Danniella and Charlotte, proud owners of Two Ps and a Pod, have opened the doors to their new pet care facility at Portsmouth Road, Bursledon, Southampton.

The duo met and worked at a pub in Osborne View in Hill Head. After working many evening shifts together, the pair became close friends.

Both being animal lovers, decided to launch Two Ps in a Pod in 2018 from Charlotte home.

The business started with setting up a mini salon in Charlotte's house and gradually expanded with opening their first shop, this month.

Co-founder Charlotte told the Daily Echo: "Danniella and I both had full-time jobs before opening our store, and at the time, it felt risky to quit our secure jobs. However, it was a risk worth taking, and we have no regrets."

Before launching their firm, Daniella used to be a content writer and Charlotte specialised in Business Management and worked as an operation manager at Local NHS trust. The two also received training in Canine Behaviour, dog grooming, first aid and care and welfare.

Two Ps in a pod offers grooming services such as cutting & styling, deshedding sessions, hand stripping, ultrasonic teeth cleaning and

Nail Clipping.

They also offer solo and group dog walks, puppy care, obedience and behaviour training, cat care and visits and services on the weekend as well.

Last month, the company launched an apparel line, which has been praised by many customers. The store introduced new adjustable & reversible harnesses, stylish collars and leads.

The customers will also have access to sustainable pet supplies, toys, pet treats without preservatives.

The pet care company provides its staff with rigorous training and makes sure that all customers receive the best service. Charlotte said: "We are committed to maintaining positive relationships with our customers. We want both our animal friends and humans to be completely satisfied when they leave our shop."

Store owners, Danniella and Charlotte; have received immense support from their family, friends and residents. In the future, they wish to expand their team and open more stores in the UK.
