Hello I'm Katy and I'm the owner of Smart-Paws dog grooming. Simply put, I am obsessed with dogs! I always have been and I always will be, they are a part of my life and I love my job! In the picture is my lovely cocker spaniel Tallulah and she is my baby!

After working in kennels for years I decided I wanted to set up my own dog grooming salon. In 2008 I set up Smart-Paws after gaining my initial qualifications at a grooming school in Oxford. Following this I then also completed my Level 3 City and Guilds in London. I am also a qualified dog hydrotherapist. I am fully qualified in first aid for dogs.

It was very important to me to maintain a natural approach when it comes to dogs skin so our product range is 100% natural and we always use tearless shampoos around our doggy customers face to ensure the nicest experience for them whilst being bathed!

I look forward to meeting you soon!
