Story time!
Kim  - Pet Stylist 


Kim has worked in the pet industry for the past 30 years. One of her very first jobs was managing the local pet store in her hometown.

Fur, feathers or scales, you name it, she's had at least one!!


Her greatest strengths are her calm positive energy, her patience, and her unconditional love for animals. She treats each one as if they were her own, and you don't need anyone but the animals themselves to show you how much they all love her.


She has repeatedly been told she has the patience of a saint. Her co-workers call her "The Dog Whisperer" because she has the ability to calm even the feistiest of them all (and she has the video to prove it!!)


"Its all about trust",  she says. "Animals see and feel things that most people are oblivious to, such as energy. I am quite sensitive to this energy as well. If your intentions are true and pure, the animals instinctively know this, and they trust you. Its not rocket science,

Its just LOVE" Once you get past the trust issue, the rest is cake. 

Kim is available Thursday through Sunday


(Kim can also clip birds/parrots wings and nails, and cut nails on reptiles and small animals, as long as they are handle-able. Such as rabbits, guinea pigs and ferrets. Just call ahead to make a specialty appointment for these services.)

Kelly and Aspen
Kelly  - Pet Stylist
Kelly, (Kim's sister) began her career with animals in a shelter teaching dog obedience...then moved on to study under a veterinarian to become a veterinary technician. She has an eye for the medical side and often notices underlying issues that may go unseen by the owner. She can offer a professional opinion and recommend a vet visit based on her experience working in a veterinary hospital for 10 years.
Grooming has been her passion since 2007. Every day is a new opportunity to spend time with the dogs that she loves, while providing the parents with exceptional customer service (and always a good laugh!)
"I can't imagine myself doing any other job for the rest of my life. I can honestly say I chose a job that I love and I will never have to work a day in my life!
Kelly is available Tuesday thru Saturday

Shannon - Pet Stylist

Shannon and Kelly met about 6 years ago, while working together,  before Kelly joined us at Spaw. 
Some of you may remember her... she came in to lend a hand a few times, and helped us out during  the busy holiday season about 3 years ago.
She graduated from the NY school of Dog grooming and has worked at various grooming shops all over Long Island for the past 11 years. Fate has sent her back to us, and we hope she finds her home at Spaw and stays with us!

Shannon is full of positive energy, has a great sense of humor, and the best part is -she's an amazing groomer!!
We are so happy to have her back!!

Shannon is available Wed & Thurs

Emilio - Pet Stylist

Emilio started at the dog club as Kims bather about 15 years ago. At the time of his hire, he didn't speak any English, and she didn't speak any Spanish! But they worked so well together, that it didn't even matter!! During the time they worked together, they learned each others language, and Kim taught him how to groom. He worked under her, as her assistant, for 8 years. 
Once Kim left, Emilio stayed, but his wife, Marleni came to work at Spaw. She has been our bather ever since, and is our MVP!!
Its been 7 years since Kim opened Spaw, and in that time, Emilio has only perfected his skill! Kim was blown away at how good he got!! 
We are so excited to have him join us!

Emilio is available on Wed & Sun
