Posh Pets Spain

The small company with the BIG heart

Hi, I’m Rachel! I started Posh Pets Spain Grooming Salon and Pet Boarding in 2004. Born and bred into the dog world, my parents took me to my first dog show at 10 days old !

I ran a pet hotel, grooming salon and showed setters as well as trained dogs in UK and wanted to bring all I’ve learnt to Spain.

Our Story

Posh Pets Spain is based just outside the village of Alhaurin el Grande on the A404 Churriana – Coin Road, twenty minutes inland from Marbella on the Costa del Sol, Spain.

Posh Pets Spain is a unique business with a style of its own and beautifully located in the grounds of a mature orchard in the heart of the Andalucian countryside. It originally started by the setting up of an English Pet Grooming Salon in the village of Alhaurin el Grande in 2004, its founder Rachel Goutorbe was able to bring her knowledge and skills from both the pet & show world in the UK to Andalucia, Spain.

Posh Pets Spain is affectionately known as the small company with the BIG heart.

Our keystones

Pet Grooming

“Hair off the dog II” opened in April 2004. Rachel who runs the dog grooming salon wanted to bring her knowledge of pet grooming & clipping dogs to Spain. “Hair off the dog I” is a pet grooming salon still going strong in the UK.

Pet Boarding
