June 2021 - We are open for dog and cat grooming and celebrating 1 amazing year in business (Est. June 2020).
Year 1 Overview:
We established the Pampered Pooch Spaw & Boutique in June 2020, having leased the space and set-up the interior during the first COVID lockdown. It's hard to believe that a whole year has flown by since then. We were locked down once more during the year, and were struck by the supportiveness, patience and concern shown by our local community and clients. We can't say enough how much we appreciate all the support you have shown during this pivitol and unpredictable first year.
So...what did we accomplish in our first year? From a business perspective, we hired two groomers, bringing our total to three, and added cat grooming which has been very popular and as cute as you'd imagine it to be. We've also added new front desk support to ensure professional, caring customer service, and to support the curbside approach we've often needed.
From a grooming perspective the numbers are stunning, and bring a smile to our faces so we wanted to share them with you:
An incredible 745 different pets visited the Spaw (many of them multiple times) during our first year supporting our community. We are proud that we provided individual care and attention to each and every one. They're all so special in their own unique ways. Here's a quick overview of the perfect pets that came through:
Most Popular Breeds:
The 745 pets that came through, represented just about every breed you could imagine, and our highly trained and experienced grooming team is ready for each one, but some breed trends developed that we found fascinating (we thought you might too!) Here's the most popular breeds that came to visit:
