A visit to Murphy’s Paw goes beyond simple dog washing. It is a memorable experience that involves professional grooming under the hands of caring experts. The grooming salon team loves dogs and is experienced in working with dogs of all sizes and temperaments. They have all undergone stringent in-house training. Caitlin, who is originally from New Zealand, has been with the salon for many years. Jeanne is American trained and loves herding breeds. Alicia is a dog lover who trained in Taiwan.
