A Loyal Grooming Company:
Tested by Groomers For Groomers
Learn our story and you will learn why others are switching to Loyalty Pet Products
I was a teacher and coach by profession for over 18 years (straight out of college). I will forever be a teacher and coach at heart. I recently made the switch to focus 100% on our growing company, Loyalty Pet Products, so that I could be with my wife and our two amazing young children a bit more and continue to come out with some amazingly innovative and stylish products in the grooming world.
But let’s start at the very beginning.
A few years ago, I met a wonderful young woman who would later become my wife, Jazare Alvarez. I had two rescue pits and she had three dogs of her own at the time, so our new ‘family’ immediately was one of love and dogs. Jazare, my wife, had already been grooming professionally for almost a decade when we met. A few months after we started dating, she introduced me officially to the world of grooming when she invited me to the Orlando Grooming Convention back in October of 2012. I was amazed at the turnout, but also the high prices at a “discounted” show. $300 for one pair of scissors?
You can see where this is going. My new girlfriend did not break the bank as a groomer and she didn’t just want new tools, she needed them. Scissors of this style, chunkers here, thinners there, a dryer to make some extra money grooming at home – it was all way too high for her initial budget. I offered to buy her dryer for an early Christmas gift and it dawned on me that she was only able to buy two scissors totaling almost the $500 she went there with. I immediately began to do extensive research because I knew that Jazare was not in this dilemma alone.
Fast forward to October 2015. We are now married, Jazare is pregnant, and we invite her good friend (also a groomer) to her first grooming convention. Elizabeth, who is also a groomer, was in the exact same boat as Jazare was back in 2012. At this stage, we had already a few prototypes from manufacturers, still nailing down the quality and pricing that met our standards. When I saw Elizabeth heartbroken when she could not afford everything she needed, just like Jazare was, it was time to kickstart my motivation and get our company up and running officially.
I am proud to announce that Loyalty Pet Products has officially been a company since October 2015. Our first-ever trade show was at the Orlando grooming convention, taking a chance on others that they would take a chance on us – it was magical! We got nothing but great feedback, some awesome stories, and a lot of new customers who fell in love with our shears and company.
So why do we do what we do? We mentioned two very personal reasons above in this article as to why. Now we do it for YOU and others just like Jazare and Elizabeth that want to better their craft, their career, their tools – all while not breaking the bank. Not only do we offer exclusive and unique designs, but we offer a 30 day risk-free guarantee. If you don’t like the way scissors feel, there is a manufacturer’s issue, you don’t like the color – ANYTHING – simply ship them back and we will gladly replace or refund them! Our apparel has a 14 day return policy, as well. Oh yeah – about out apparel…
In May of 2018, we started releasing some of our apparel line with our smocks. We tried so hard to make a different fabric that was PERFECT – and we are still working on that. Our smocks have a steady sales force because they are breathable, quick to dry, and extremely comfortable and professional-looking. Although they are NOT hair-resistant, we came out with our first-ever line of FuRResist leggings in October 2019. I am proud to say that it was recently nominated by customers around the globe as the 2020 Barkleigh Product of the Year! We have since revolutionized the apparel line in the grooming world by being the first in the industry to create hair-resistant long-sleeved undershirts, tank tops, and even SPORTS BRAS, a fan favorite! We have a men’s / unisex line of cargo pants and smocks, as well! We are constantly listening to our customers and trying to innovate for the next “product of the year” candidate / winner! We now even have a new Limited Edition apparel design every 15th of the month, so be sure to check those out before they sell out!

I want to personally thank you for reading what we are all about. My wife and I are truly blessed to have so many loving dogs, each other, and our children Ryker and Kinley. Ryker was born on January 2nd. 2016 six weeks premature. He had to be hospitalized in the NICU for over seven weeks and he truly is our inspiration. Kinley was born on March 6th, 2018, the same birthday as her “Grammy”.
I can’t wait to serve you and to better your career choice as a groomer. We are here for you. We sincerely are a family business and we want you to be a part of that closeness. God Bless and thank you for your support!
