Welcome to Paws of Par

At Paws of Par your dog is the star. A little about us...

Paws of Par is a small, purpose built, fully insured, dog grooming salon based in the heart of Par near St Austell in Mid Cornwall. Here at Paws of Par I offer a professional, friendly, one-to-one dog grooming service which is individually tailored to meet the needs of you and your dogs. I am passionate about dogs and I was trained by award winning Master Groomer Eve J Somers at the AbbFabb Academy of Dog Groomers Training where I gained my City and Guilds Qualification. It was whilst training that I discoverd a love for competing at dog grooming competitions. I regularly compete and attend training seminars and I am proud to say that I am an award winning dog groomer, having been awarded with a 1st place at The British Dog Grooming Championships Groomer of the Year competition for hand scissoring a cockerpoo. In addition to this, I am a member of the International Professional Groomers Inc as well as a member of the teaching team at the Abbfabb Academy of Dog Groomers Training. As part of my role at Abbfabb I offer my training and expertise to students wishing to begin a career in professional dog grooming. I also hold a canine first aid certificate.

Why choose Paws of Par?

When grooming I DO NOT use restraints, I use gentle handling techniques. This allows your dog to relax on the grooming table with no stress and in a calm environment whilst building a trusting relationship with me.

I DO NOT use cage or cabinet dryers. All drying is done by hand, ensuring the safety and comfort, of each and every dog in my care.

I offer longer appointments for elderly and nervous dogs at NO extra cost, allowing me to take the grooming at a more relaxed and steady pace for them.

I have a K9 Hydrobath which provides a deep cleansing therapeutic water massage during bathing. Proven to penetrate the coat getting right to the skin for a cleaner feel as well as helping with blood circulation and relieving tired, aching muscles. It is particularly beneficial for arthritic/elderly dogs.

I have an extra low electric grooming table and the hydro bath has a door. So your dog will NEVER have to jump on and off high tables or in and out of the bath. This minimises the risk of injury to your dogs muscles, bones and joints.

During all grooms your special friend WILL have regular access to a large fenced garden and fresh water at all times ensuring their comfort.They will NEVER be on the grooming table for more than 30 minutes without a comfort break in the garden.

I can take care of your puppy from their first groom right through to their OAP years.

I offer the following dog grooming services:

I cater for all breeds.

So, if you live in St Austell, Par, Fowey, St Blazey or any of the surrounding areas, why not come and visit the Paws of Par dog grooming salon? You can rest assured your dog will be well looked after and when they leave Paws of Par they will look and feel like a million dollars.
