We are more than thrilled to bark out a welcoming wag to Pretty Paws, a wonderful pet grooming service.

“A Full Service Pet Spa,” 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).

“We specialize in expert pet grooming,” says founder and owner Kathy Graf, an International Pet Groomers Association Certified Master Groomer.

Kathy’s crew is led by Dawn, who has worked at Pretty Paws for almost its entire decade in business.

“I was bathing dogs when I was 8 and picked up my first pair of doggie clippers 4 years later,” says Dawn.

“I learned a lot about pet grooming from my mother.”

“Dawn is particularly good with specialty clips for poodles,” says Kathy.

“Remember, we also groom cats. Even the finicky ones. Not all shops offer this service.

“Also, for Burien-area senior citizens with mobility problems, we will pick up and drop off their pets for a small additional fee.”

You can pick up pet food at Pretty Paws as well as products such as dog sweaters and Coach collars and leashes.

There’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 “Hey! I’ve got a great brand name for dog bone products! They should be called ‘Fetch ‘Ems’. You want to trademark that with us?”

Another satisfied customer.

“Uh, you go right on ahead and trademark that one yourself,” Kathy said, rolling her eyes. “Good luck with that, okay?”

Pretty Paws even has its own onsite African Gray Parrot, named Cash.

“Cash really likes (human) men,” say the Pretty Paws workers.

Cash will even offer its own loud vocal “Goodbye!” as happy customers walk out the door.

Pretty Paws also offers baby sitting services for special customers – call or visit to inquire further.

Exciting future note: Kathy Graf is also a budding writer.

“I’m writing a nonfiction piece, unrelated to dogs or cats.”

Kathy’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.

Stay tuned.

And as Bob Barker used to say, “Don’t forget to scoop!” Uh, we mean…oh, never mind.

Open seven days a week.
