Wash Your Paws Dog Grooming
We are so happy we found Wash Your Paws, we have two shelties that go to the groomers every 5 weeks and since moving back to the Lakes Region two years ago we have not had a steady groomer due the lack of good work, professionalism, and the plain fact that our dogs simply have not liked any of them. We were about to throw in the towel and begin to schedule days off from work just to bring our dogs back to our old groomer who is a couple of hours away, when we heard about Wash Your Paws. We are so pleased, the cut was perfect, the dogs are beautiful, they smell terrific, and best of all they were both wagging there tails when I picked them up. I am very pleased to have finally found a new groomer close to home. Take my word as we have tried most other local groomers only to be let down and worst of all our dogs weren't happy. I thank you and Josie and Oakley thank you as well.

This is the place if you want your dog to have the very best. I brought my Sheltie in to try Wash Your Paws out. The results were better than I could ever expect. He looks great, smells great and his coat has never been softer and feel so good. Katelyn has made us a forever customer!

Tips & Advices
Some pet groomers have viewing areas where owners can sit and watch their pets being treated. Most prevent owners from being in the same room as the pet, however, as the owner's presence might cause the pet to become too excited.
Pets that cannot interact with strangers do not make good professional grooming candidates. Sometimes medication can help, but some groomers don't take animals that have been sedated. If a pet becomes too unruly, a groomer may end the session entirely.
It's best to fully vaccinate pets before bringing them to their first grooming appointment. Dogs should receive the DA2PPC vaccine, which stands for canine distemper, canine andenovirus type 2, canine parvovirus, and parainfluenza. It's also a good idea to vaccinate dogs against Bordedatella (aka “kennel cough”). In fact, New York City requires dogs receive both DAPP and Bordetella shots. Cats, meanwhile, should get the FVRCP vaccine: feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus infection, and panleukopenia. In addition, all pets should be up to date on their rabies shots. Owners should wait at least 24 hours after getting their pet vaccinated before bringing it to the groomers.
Technically, there is no such thing as a pet that is too old for a professional groomer. In fact, older pets with joint or mobility issues often can't groom themselves and need someone else to clean them. However, pets that are blind, deaf, or have serious medical issues might not do well at a groomer, especially if the person is inexperienced. Owners should feel free to ask potential groomers about their understanding of elderly pet issues. Often, older pets will exhibit puppy-like behavior and squirm or yelp during grooming. Alternatively, they might not be able to stand for long periods of time. As such, grooming an older pet usually takes more time than grooming a young one.
Puppies and kittens should be at least 10 weeks old before their first professional grooming session. They should be used to being gently handled by strangers and comfortable being separated from their owners for a few hours at a time.
