Why Precious Paws?

Here at Precious Paws we came up with an amazingly simple philosophy -


First, we found a cute little building in a great location with plenty of potential. Then we fixed it up and decorated it until we were reminded of ISLAMORADA in the FLORIDA KEYS where we got married. Once we thought it was cool enough, we added some whiz-bang stuff like flat-screen TVs and a killer audio system to really set it apart and make it more fun for everyone. Then we found the best groomers and gave them the best available equipment to use. Our staff is like family here, too - and that's the way it should be. We take good care of them, they take good care of us and we all take great care of you and your pet! SIMPLE, HUH?

Why doesn't everybody do things that way? We're not sure. But we are sure of one thing, PRECIOUS PAWS IS THE COOLEST GROOMING SALON & SELF-SERVE DOG WASH AROUND!
