Services & Fees
Before coming to "PawZ",.. dont feed your dog. Take your dog for a walk prior to leaving home for him or her to relieve itself. Please dont bring toys, or treats 75% of dogs get stressed over grooming and they will not eat it or play with it,.. It is very normal for your dog to shake when coming into a dog salon, they are smart and know what is coming, and love to put on a "show" for their owners, but once inside they know the drill, and are quite content with us once the owner leaves. You are best to just "hand off" your dog to the groomer and NOT make a big deal about leaving your dog. Your dog will pick up on your anxiety and it will be harder on him or her. Don't worry about your pooch, they will be fine..
Please Do NOT show up or call while your dog is being groomed. Showing up while your dog is being finished on the table stresses out your dog and gets him all excited wanting to go home with you. This makes it very unsafe for me to try and finish our work on a "dancing dog". I will call when the dogs is finished. Please pick your dog up within 10min or so after my call..

Now offering Soft Paws
Is there a difference between Soft Claws and Soft Paws? Absolutely NOT! The the nail caps are manufactured and produced IDENTICAL. The only difference is with the packaging design. Soft Claws are packaged to be sold through retail stores and distributors. Soft Paws are packaged for professional sales through Vets and Groomers only.
What are Soft Claws? Invented by veterinarian, Soft Claws have been on the market since 1990. Soft Claws are an excellent alternative to declawing. They are easy to apply at home and cats and their owners love them. They are completely safe and humane and can be used on cats of all ages. Soft Claws are vinyl nail caps that are glued on to your cat's existing nails. They are easy to apply and cats tolerate them extremely well.
How are Soft Claws applied? Soft Claws are easy to apply. They are applied with glue to the nail
How long do they last and how often do they need to be reapplied? Once the nail caps are applied they remain in place for approximately 4-6 weeks. They will fall off with the natural growth of your cat's nails. We recommend that you check your cat's nails periodically because usually just one or two may fall off and Jamie can reapply for only $3 fee. Generally not necessary to replace fallen off ones since the cat cannot scratch with just one nail... :)
Note: While the vast majority of cats acclimate to the claw covers within minutes, some cats may require an adjustment period. Cat's fastidious natures sometimes causes them to groom the claw covers excessively at first. This may result in one or two falling off. No problem. Just check the claws daily at first and if one is missing, simply give Jamie a call to replace. Thus, the first application may not last as long as the subsequent applications will. Again, most cats do not even notice they are wearing them after the first 30 minutes. A good tip is to feed your cat his or her favorite food after applying the Soft Claws. This serves as a good reward and also diverts their attention away from their new acquisition
Are Soft Claws safe and do they hurt the cat? Soft Claws are completely safe, painless and non-toxic. Even if they are swallowed, no problem will result. They just pass on through the digestive system. The glue is harmless as well. Soft Claws are extremely safe and non-toxic. The adhesive is the same type of adhesive used in many veterinary procedures. The nail caps and dried adhesive are non-toxic and completely safe.
Can cats extend and retract their claws with the Soft Claws? Absolutely. Soft Claws are designed, not to interfere with the normal extension and retraction of claws.
Will Soft Claws interfere with my cat's normal scratching and stretching behavior? No. Your cat can still stretch and make scratching motions but no damage will occur to your furniture because the claw is effectively covered and protected.
Can cats get infections from these like humans can get from acrylic nails? No. Cat's claws are completely different from human nails. Cats shed the outer sheaths of their claws periodically. You have probably seen this around their scratching post (or couch). The same happens when they are wearing Soft Claws. The nail cap comes off with the normal shedding of the outer nail sheath. This prevents the possibility of infection.
Can Soft Claws be used on back claws? Yes. Although most people apply Soft Claws only to the front paws, they can also be used on the back if desired. Applying Soft Claws to the hind claws will help prevent damage from cats jumping on and off furniture. Also, many people have used Soft Claws on the hind claws of cats who have skin problems and scratch excessively. The nail caps help prevent self-inflicted damage from scratching.
What should I do if the Soft Claws stay on longer than six weeks? Normally the nail caps will fall off with the natural growth of the cat's nails. But, some cats (actually very few) don't shed their nails as rapidly as other cats and the nail caps don't fall off on their own. If this occurs, all that needs to be done is to trim the very tip of the nail cap. This will help break the adhesive seal and the nail caps should fall off. It is important to periodically check your cat's nails, i.e. once weekly, to ensure none of the nails have gown too long. Since cats' nails grow in a curved manner, if they grow too long, they will start to curl under the paw pad. If you notice the nail is too long, just trim the tip of the nail cap to remove.
Can Soft Claws be used on ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, and iguanas? Yes. Contact Jamie for correct sizing.
