Our History & Grooming Service Philosophy
Big ‘n Little Paw Spaw was formed to help every pet owner easily access the important service of grooming their animal. Grooming on your own can be a very dangerous or harmful process for your pet. However, hiring a trained professional should be easier than it is. We have taken it upon ourselves to study the art of grooming and try to provide the service in the most convenient way possible.
Big ‘n Little owner, Spencer, chose to become a mobile version of a groomer because of his own dog’s histories. He’s always had pound puppies, runts of the litter, and throwaways. He has always found these to be the sweetest, most loyal dogs, but they are often afraid of the conventional groomer because of the scale of the operation and the way the process unfolds. His dogs were always extremely nervous of being caged and would lash out. This was not good for anybody. He hired his first mobile groomer in 1994 for his dog Charlie, and never looked back. The time Charlie saved out of the cage probably added years to his life.
Because of Spencer’s history with pups, Big ‘n Little Paw Spaw also has a goal of getting more pets in the area adopted from local shelters. When we are not grooming our customer’s family members, we seek out and clean up shelter pets in need of a new home. We help them look their best when their new potential family comes to see them!! All these little guys need a forever home, and we are there to help with what we can.
Why Choose Big ‘n Little Mobile Paw Spaw?
Convenience! We come to you, and will even groom while you are away at work. This saves you the time of driving to and from the groomer, and saves your pet the ordeal of sitting in a cage for most of the day! No more arranging for a 6:30 am drop-off that is not on your way to work, and then having to leave before a certain time to pick up your baby. We will come when you need us and will even schedule something special outside of our normal business hours if necessary.
You can schedule online! This means that no animal spends extra time with dirty skin or matted fur while you wait for the other company to call you back! If we have a time slot available, it is yours! These times are viewable and accessible on our scheduling page. First time customers will have a verification process, but beyond the first visit, your pet goes directly into our route schedule. If your fur-baby decides the mud puddle looks like fun on a Tuesday, and we have an open slot, we will be there.
Less stress on your pet! Our whole grooming process has been created with pet comfort in mind. First the dog is surrounded by familiar neighborhood scents. Then once inside, there is a calm and clean environment. There are not a dozen dogs barking at the “new guy.” We even have a no lift situation with electric tables and ramps; this is great for letting the dog move at their own pace and keeping our older doggos pain free and happy. The sky-blue color of the ceiling was even designed to create the feeling of being outside. Finally, the whole process is exponentially faster as well.
