Glamour Paws Adds New Groomer, Accepting New Customers

SARATOGA SPRINGS – The holidays are going to the dogs. Studies show more than 60 percent of owners include their pets in holiday cards or give them a gift. Furthermore, 80 percent of pets participate in holiday celebrations. Glamour Paws, located at 426 Maple Ave in Saratoga Springs, is taking reservations and looking for new customers for dog grooming. 

No matter what festivities your dog partakes in, grooming is essential to avoid smelly pet odors and keep the seasonal scents of cinnamon and pine trees alive. Getting your pooch cleaned up and looking (and not to mention, smelling) their best before company starts arriving is what Glamour Paws can help you do.

Glamour Paws opened seven months ago and owner, Andrea Ott, says business has been steady busy. With the new addition of groomer, Liz Nudo, Ott is able to increase clientele.

“It’s a great location and we’re in a dog-friendly town so you have a lot of dogs but not really a lot of groomers,” said Ott.

Glamour Paws offers grooming for all breeds, professional baths, spa treatments, express visits and a pet boutique. Ott says one of the benefits of taking pets to a local groomer instead of a big-box or chain grooming salon, is the calm atmosphere.

“A less stressful environment is very beneficial in the grooming session,” said Ott. “Not having three or four groomers working at once and chaos. Liz and I are the kind of groomers who limit what we do in a day. We space them apart and we like to take our time and do a good job. We’re more focused on quality instead of quantity. We’ll see about four to five dogs a day, which is really low compared to what I hear other groomers do.”

Ott has 15 years of experience and is a graduate of the New York School of Grooming in Manhattan. New York State does not require approved training for animal groomers, so Ott says her education is something she’s extremely proud of.

“I wanted to do it the right way,” said Ott.

With the holiday season quickly approaching, Glamour Paws is now offering new packages. Customers can choose from candy cane, gingerbread or sugar plum fairy, which includes a coconut oil sugar scrub for the pads, nail file, teeth cleaning, and matching cologne. These head to tail pampering packages are only $15.

 

Usual hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Appointments can be made by calling 584-1560. Glamour Paws can also be found on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/onlyglamourpaws
