Maintenance grooming salon

Meet the team

What is maintenance grooming?

Jamie opened the Paws! Then Play doors at Rostrevor in January 2019 and has over 10 years grooming experience. Up until January 2021 the salon was owned operated. Since then, Paws! then play was lucky enough to welcome Donna to our small salon team. Donna has a wealth of knowledge and has been in the grooming industry for over 30 years. Donna is  proficient in the introduction of puppies to the grooming process and providing comfort and training to dogs who are anxious. With over 40 years experience between the team, we are excited to meet you and your (our) four legged friends!

At Paws! Then play we love to groom fluffy teddy bear hairstyles! So much so that we actually specialize in Poodle and Oodle coats! In order for us to be able to provide your dog with the best quality service and stress free groom, the dogs are required to stay on a 4-8 weekly pre-booked schedule. This is dependent on the desired length, style, behavior of the dog and maintenance at home between grooming (brushing and combing your dog!)

This helps the dogs become accustomed to the routine of grooming. If a dog is subjected to de-matting each appointment they will begin to dislike the grooming process as it is painful. Help us help your pooch so we can give your dog the haircut you desire!

We prebook the majority of our clients for 12 months in advance - this takes the stress out of remembering to book in and reserves you a spot in our busy schedule. It also assist with preventing matting incase we are booked out when you call up!

Please give us a call to organise your dogs first groom with us and moving forward we can discuss what grooming schedule will suit you and your pooch best!
