Welcome to Horncastle Pet Centre & Grooming

Horncastle Pet Centre was established in 1995 by Kathy O’Connor and is now in partnership with Michael Shaylor.
We have both kept (and still do!) a wide variety of animals and have extensive knowledge of their needs. Our speciality is dog nutrition and we can offer advice on biscuit, cooked prepacked meat plus raw feeding. We prefer to sell more natural dog food as we find that dogs thrive on it and have far fewer health problems. We also specialise in wild bird feed and carry a wide range of accessories. Small animals, birds and fish are also catered for.
We also offer a professional dog grooming service for most breeds of dog. Grooming is provided at the rear of the premises by Kathy O’Connor, City & Guilds Level 3 Certificate & Diploma and part-time C&G Assessor at Grimsby Institute.
Please call: 01507 523633 for an appointment.

Kathy O’Connor has been grooming since 1995, originally training at a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel boarding and show kennels and later qualifying at Grimsby Institute. She qualified with the full City and Guilds Level 3 Certificate and Diploma and was offered a job assessing students for the practical City and Guilds modules, also assisting with teaching and dog grooming.



Naomi Short has been grooming since 2010 and also holds the full Level 3 Certificate and Diploma. Both Kathy and Naomi have competed in grooming throughout the UK and Naomi has been placed and also won several times.

We regularly attend seminars and workshops with industry experts to ensure we are continuously updating and improving our skills.
