"They did such a good job on taking care of my cat. I was impressed with their service. I will go again."

"Had a long haired cat with significant matting issues on his rear end, and was very twitchy about his claws. They took care of both incredibly quickly, and at a very reasonable cost. These guys are awesome. :)"

Naughty paw Grooming Procedures:

The entire grooming procedure typically takes about 2-3 hours from checking in to picking up your pet.  The actual grooming time may vary, depending on the size, coat condition and behaviour.

  1. Checking in – gather information from the owner and discuss what services the owner wants for the groom.  We will make sure the requirements on the pet trim styles from the owner would be feasible because sometimes the dog/cat does not have enough hair to get to the style the owner wants.  We then provide our expert recommendations with multiple options to the owner. Once we agree on the style, we will perform basic cleaning and brushing for the dog/cat to reach the goal ultimately.

  2. Detail Assessment – Once the dog/cat checked in, one of our associates will assess the animal for any health concerns such skin, coat, nails, paws, ears and teeth issues that we may need to provide additional special care or support in grooming.  We will also take note of the behaviour of the animal.

  3. Preparation for Grooming – After the assessment, we will then do the nail trimming, ear plucking (if necessary and depends on the breed) and ear cleaning.

  4. Brushing and Pre-bath trimming – We will brush, comb and remove any tangles or excessive hair before the bath

  5. Bath – Different breeds and color have different needs.   We have different types of shampoo and conditioner to cater different coat and skin conditions.  All of them are organic products which are very gentle to the skin. 

  6. Drying – After bathing, we do towel dry first then we will use a blower to blow out the excess water.  We will then use a fluff dryer to brush and dry at the same time to straighten the hair to prepare for the final finishing work. 

  7. Pads and Sanitation – After drying, we remove the hair from the pads in the paws to prevent them from slipping and also to remove the hair on the anal area or the groin area to avoid their urine and bowel movement stick on the fur.

  8. Finishing Styling – After all the detailed preparation steps as listed above, we are finally ready to perform the final finishing styling.  If your pet will benefit from using our scissoring techniques for grooming, our stylist will follow the instructions from the assessment and will design the most suitable style for your pet i.e. Breed styles, Teddy Bear styles or Asian Fusion styles.  If they are natural hair pets and require shedless treatment or excessive undercoat removal, we will do the final brushing and do the tidy up before they are ready for pickup.  All the trimming will be finished by hand-scissoring which ultimately will give a much finer and smoother finishing.
