Meet Your Dedicated Paw Pals Grooming Team

Putting Your Pets at Ease Since 2004

Proudly serving the Greater Toronto Area since 2004, Paw Pals Grooming is dedicated to making your pet feel comfortable and at home while in our salon. We want your pet to have a good time with us and always be happy to come back.

Quality Hand-Scissored Grooming for Best Results

Our second priority is for your pet to leave Paw Pals looking his or her best. We specialize in quality hand-scissored grooming and always give your pet the time it takes for the best hair-do possible. All of our groomers are trained in the art of pet styling. Whether you are looking for a simple, short haircut or a fancy, elaborate style, our groomers are qualified.

Dedicated to ensuring your pet’s hairstyle is professional and always the way you want it, we ask you questions and find out exactly what it is you are looking for. We keep a calm and peaceful salon so your pet is less likely to stress out. We are even able to give most dogs a lot of crate-free time! Many of our doggy clients are excited to see us and run into the salon happily wagging their tails. And of course, we’re also happy to see them!

At Paw Pals, you can always expect:

  • Free consultations– Just give us a call and let us know you’re coming. We can meet you and your pet to discuss your grooming concerns.
  • Satisfaction guaranteed– If you are not happy with your pet’s hairstyle, we are always willing to make it right (within a week of their original appointment) free of charge!  Submit a testimonial and let us know how we’re doing!
  • Excellent customer service– Our groomers will always greet you and your pet with a warm welcome and a friendly smile. We will make sure to find out exactly what type of hair style you are looking for and take note of any special requests or concerns you may have. Once your pet is in our care, we will treat him or her as our own, making sure they are comfortable and happy!
  • A little extra– Each pet always goes home with a beautiful hairstyle, as well as a decorative bandana or bow. We also spray a little pet cologne on them. Don’t like any of the decorative stuff? Just let us know, and we’ll skip it. No problem!

Samantha – Owner & Professional Dog Groomer

Available to Groom on Saturdays

Samantha began her grooming career in 2000 when she attended Sheridan College and studied in the Animal Care program. There, she studied a variety of animal care subjects but really developed a passion for grooming. Once she graduated from Sheridan College, she decided to continue her education specifically in grooming. She attended and graduated from Bryson Academy of Dog Grooming, where she was taught by the well-known and accomplished Nancy Bryson herself. Once grooming school was completed, Samantha continued to work and gain precious experience in the grooming industry, before finally opening Paw Pals Grooming in 2004.

Samantha has been passionate for pets her entire life and thoroughly enjoys working with them every day. She also loves the creative and artistic part of grooming. Nothing brings her more joy and satisfaction than to transform a scruffy looking pet into a beautifully primped pet that a family can be proud of.
