| About Us

What We’re All About

Pampered Paws-N-Claws opened August 1st of 2008. Since 2013 we have been voted the #1 pet salon in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania by both the readers of the Tribune Review and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Both of our groomers are certified licensed professionals providing your pet with one on one personalized care.  We offer a stress free, cage free grooming environment with specialized facilities for large breed dogs.  As each pet is handled individually grooms are typically done in an hour or less.


Like what you are see? We fill up quick, so please pre-book your appointment at least one week in advance. Families of multiple pets or a larger dog that takes over an hour to groom may need to schedule two weeks in advance due to time requirements, so be sure to call early!

Our Policies:

All Animals entering this building for a grooming appointment must be up to date on Rabies Vaccination and show documentation on prior grooming.

If you are more than 10 minutes late for your scheduled time you will be given the option to reschedule or pay a $10 late fee. If you do not show for an appointment you will be required to pay a $30 nonrefundable deposit in order  to secure your next appointment. This deposit will not be taken off future grooming.

We have no place to keep your pet after they are groomed, so we request that you pick them up promptly after their grooming so we can assist with the next groom after.
