About Our Team
Paw by Paw was launched in February 2016, after grooming dogs for several years and realizing that I could offer so much more with my experience, passion and love for dogs.
We are able to offer dogs a grooming experience that will teach them that having a groom is nothing to be frightened of and meeting new people is exciting and rewarding. Our salon is designed so your dogs can freely walk around and can take as many breaks as they require during their groom, and only book one on one appointments.
We will always treat your dog as our own, after all our passion is dogs of all breeds and personalities and we only use positive reinforcement for every animal.
We take pride in our work and want all our furry clients to be able to enjoy their groom and time with us. We give lots of cuddles throughout their experience and the occasional treat if they are allowed, and our grooming process is completely force free at all times.
We are trained to groom any type of dog including specific breed cuts for example. Bichon Frise, Schnauzers, Poodles, Wire Haired Fox Terriers, Lakeland Terriers, Airdales, Kerry Blue Terriers, West Highland Terriers, Lagotto Romagnolo.
Please understand that we love and respect all dogs and will not put them through any pain to remove their coat. If you dog comes in a matted state we may need to remove their coat and start again or clip shorter than you have requested as this is what is best for your furry lil friend.
If you are looking for a groomer that can give your dog the understanding that they need then please contact me so we can discuss your best friends needs.
Head Groomer & Cheif Operations Officer (COO)
I am different than your average groomer as I have worked with animals for over 15 years in animal shelters, kennels and daycare, and my training and experience in reading dog language helps me understand how your dog is feeling.
I have worked at both the RSPCA and Animal Welfare League and our own dogs were either rescued or adopted from shelters, so I understand that some dogs may have had a bad start in life or just find it hard to deal with new people or experiences.
Nikki has years of experience working with animals and has been grooming with us since 2016. Nikki comes from working with the RSPCA and is a full-time groomer with us and shares our love for animals.
She has 4 of her own dogs that she has given homes to over the years and enjoys cuddles and playing with all dogs when she gets a chance. Nikki is a clean freak and quite often will be seen with a broom in her hand ensuring that our salon is clean at all times.
Gabrielle has recently joined the pawbypaw family, after recently moving to Australia from the UK where she had her own dog grooming business.
Gabby is a great addition to the team and brings years of experience grooming a variety of breeds, and is works Monday, Tuesday & Thursdays.
