When Isaac Mizrahi called upon us and commissioned our talented groom team to dye poodles for his Fall 2011 Fashion Show to match his collection, it validated everything we have always known about our grooming, that we are the best at what we do. From grooming, to make overs, paw-di-cures, all day spa treatments, mohawks, dye jobs… to our newest color rejuvenation┬átreatments. Our goal has always been to make your pet beautiful while keeping in mind the health of their coat is first priority.

Our Groomers:

We have been voted two years in a row by Time Out NY, and AMNY as Best Groom Spa in NYC. Our head groomer, May and her team have a combined experience of over 25 years and love each animal as their own. May, who has been noted in many groom magazines, is known for her superb skills and temperament with the animals. This is what has put her above the rest and help put The Salty Paw on the map. Our groom team have mastered all show breed cuts on both dogs & cats right down to the basic puppy cut. With her own unique style and her flawless finish, our clients come from all over the tri-state area to see her and her team. She is also known for her fun and funky hair cuts like mohawks and full body mowhawks. She uses vibrant colors to dye the dogs ears & tails, or to turn them into pandas or lions. Her newest treatment is color rejuvenation. Dyes straight from Paris, that are used to enhance the dog’s original color. See below for more details.
