Happy Paws is pleased to offer our advanced grooming department services in order to give your pet a Resort style pampering. Let’s face it your pet can have a “bad hair day” with the best of them. So why not treat your pet to the equivalent of a spa or resort style day with our staff of trained grooming professionals at Happy Paws.

When you make a grooming reservation for your dog or cat, our staff will consult with you so the results you desire can be achieved. Whether it’s clipping, allergy free, medicated baths, fluffing, etc., our professionally trained groomers will have your pet “strutting its stuff” when you arrive to pick him/her up.

At Happy Paws we take pride in caring for your four legged friends. Our knowledgeable grooming team has over 20 years of grooming experience in more than 160 breeds of dogs and cats. We have a standard of “quality over quantity” with an ongoing concern for the humane treatment of all animals. Our emphasis is on your pet’s health, safety and comfort. The facilities are hygienic and aesthetically pleasing. We have selected a line of shampoos and conditioners that are of high quality and are safe for your pet.

I have been grooming dogs and cats professionally for the past fourteen years. I began my grooming experience when I had an apprenticeship in Madison, Wisconsin at the age of seventeen years old. Then I moved San Diego, California where I worked for show groomers. Three years ago I decided to move to New York City, and I have been working for Happy Paws ever since. I love all breeds- but I have a special place in my heart for grooming Poodles and Bichon Frises. I just love the flexibility and range of their grooming cuts. I have a two year old Labrador retriever and two long hair Chihuahuas, which are twelve and fourteen years old.

I wanted to become a groomer ever since I was fifteen years old. I became a professional groomer five years ago. I decided I wanted to become a groomer because I’ve always enjoyed the art of styling dogs. Grooming is a big part of my family. My cousin and other family members own a grooming business. My love for grooming is so great that I inspired my mother and sister to become groomers. I have many favorite breeds- but a few breeds I like to groom in particular are Schnauzers, Shih-Tzu’s, and Poodles. I really enjoy grooming Poodles as there are a lot of different style cuts you can give them. I like to use a technique called ‘Hand Scissoring’ that makes the pets I groom come out beautifully. I am also very experienced in breed standard cuts. I have a Chihuahua, a Poodle, and a long haired cat.

I have been grooming professionally for the past four years. I became a groomer because I have a deep passion and admiration for animals. I love to make them feel and look good. I got my grooming certification at the New York School of Dog Grooming. I believe I stand out from other groomers as I have a lot of patience and I groom with my heart. I make sure that the dogs I groom are comfortable and that they have a good grooming experience. I don’t have a favorite breed to groom- but I really take pleasure in grooming Maltese, Pomeranians and Yorkies! I have two dogs, Marky, a 7 years old Yorkie and Bianca a 1 ½ year old Chihuahua. I have a cat named Pimpinha, who’s seven years old. I have grooming at Happy Paws Pet Resort for two years.
