Paws 4 Grooming began in 2003 after I noticed that we didn’t have a Groom Shop in Tecumseh. We had many groomers in all areas of Lenawee County but no one had a shop for people to stop by and visit.
I decided to go to the Michigan School of Canine Cosmetology and completed a 10 week course of 8 hours days in dog & cat grooming, and loved it! I opened my “doors” on August 16th with just 3
“kids” and have been lucky enough to have a few more everyday to keep me going. I worked alone, as many of you remember, in my basement that my husband, Loren renovated for me and had help from time to time when someone wanted to learn the trade or earn a few bucks for school. Late in 2004 I decided that I needed to have another groomer and to work to getting a place out of my home. The stairs got to be the largest hassle for most of the bigger dogs that came for their bath for me but Loren wanted the “dog hair” out of the house so we compromised and started to look for a place to call “Paws”.
The end of 2005 we found the building on Russell Road and started the renovations to make it comfortable for the “kids” and parents who would drop them off and for now I think we did a good job. I now have about 400 “regular” kids who come every 6 weeks and I have another 200 or so that come every couple of months for a sprucing, these keep us busy but we are always willing to add new “kids” to our pack!
I always like to keep the door open for any compliments or criticisms so please make sure you let me know how we are doing. Because here at Paws “if your happy, your pet's happy and then we’re happy!”
We take appointments for grooming: Tuesday – Friday 8:00am to 4:00pm; Saturday 9:00am to 2:00pm; Closed Sunday & Monday
