Philosophy/Mission: To offer the highest quality customer service while maintaining the cleanest possible environment in which customers can bathe and groom their pets, using the newest technology available to provide an easy, hassle-free bathing experience. Muddy Paws strives to demonstrate their true desire to help animals and their humans through community partnerships in which they help promote, raise funds and awareness, and share information for and about local animals and organizations in need.
Claim to Fame: Muddy Paws’ customers love how clean the shop is on any given day. The exhaust system keeps odors to a minimum and condensation at zero, and each tub, grooming table, and all grooming tools are cleaned and disinfected after each use. Customers also rave about the hydraulic tubs and drying tables, which offer back- and knee-saving height adjustability. Multi-dog families love the enclosed family area and multi-pet discounts. The Muddy Paws team is a social lot who turns customers into friends!
Community Involvement, Special Notes: Along with their customers, Muddy Paws has sponsored and participated in builds with Fences For Fido. Muddy Paws is a drop-off location for AniMeals in Clark County.
