Welcome Our Latest Advertiser: Pretty Paws Pet Grooming!
We are more than thrilled to bark out a welcoming wag to Pretty Paws, a wonderful pet grooming service.
â€œA Full Service Pet Spa,â€ as their slogan goes.
Established in 1999, Pretty Paws moved a little over two years ago from its Ambaum location to its present home, a little white house at 123 SW 158th, west of 1st Ave. S., just north of US Bank in Burien (see map below).
â€œWe specialize in expert pet grooming,â€ says founder and owner Kathy Graf, an International Pet Groomers Association Certified Master Groomer.
Kathyâ€™s crew is led by Dawn, who has worked at Pretty Paws for almost its entire decade in business.
â€œI was bathing dogs when I was 8 and picked up my first pair of doggie clippers 4 years later,â€ says Dawn.
â€œI learned a lot about pet grooming from my mother.â€
â€œDawn is particularly good with specialty clips for poodles,â€ says Kathy.
â€œRemember, we also groom cats. Even the finicky ones. Not all shops offer this service.
â€œAlso, for Burien-area senior citizens with mobility problems, we will pick up and drop off their pets for a small additional fee.â€
You can pick up pet food at Pretty Paws as well as products such as dog sweaters and Coach collars and leashes.
Thereâ€™s even a dog house for sale.
One of our B-Town Blog reporters, who is always looking to make a million dollars quickly, recently said to Kathy and her crew â€œHey! Iâ€™ve got a great brand name for dog bone products! They should be called â€˜Fetch â€˜Emsâ€™. You want to trademark that with us?â€
â€œUh, you go right on ahead and trademark that one yourself,â€ Kathy said, rolling her eyes. â€œGood luck with that, okay?â€
Pretty Paws even has its own onsite African Gray Parrot, named Cash.
â€œCash really likes (human) men,â€ say the Pretty Paws workers.
Cash will even offer its own loud vocal â€œGoodbye!â€ as happy customers walk out the door.
Pretty Paws also offers baby sitting services for special customers â€“ call or visit to inquire further.
Exciting future note: Kathy Graf is also a budding writer.
â€œIâ€™m writing a nonfiction piece, unrelated to dogs or cats.â€
Kathyâ€™s keeping us all in non-canine, non-feline suspense, but she promises to give us all here at B-Town Blog Central the worldwide scoop come publishing time.
And as Bob Barker used to say, â€œDonâ€™t forget to scoop!â€ Uh, we mean…oh, never mind.
Open seven days a week.
