Abbey and the staff at Calling All Paws are amazing! She has been grooming my Maltese for 3 years and is so kind, compassionate, caring and truly care about the pets and their humans! Can’t recommend them enough!

We got our two-year-old lab mix groomed today for the first time ever. I was so happy to watch him willingly jump into the van and come back to me less than 40 minutes later so soft and clean smelling. Our biggest issue with him is cutting his nails, but when he came back they looked and felt better than we’ve ever been able to manage. Thank you, Lydia. We cannot wait to get him more accustomed to being groomed with Calling All Paws. He’s looking more handsome than ever with his new winter bandana too!!


Abbey is the best – Griff is handsome, happy and smells so good. Thanks again Abbey – we love you.

The groomer that came to my home today was absolutely fantastic. My girl looks so good and you could tell how much the groomer loved dogs. My dog is high energy and she handled her very well. Thank you Calling All Paws for an pawesome (pun intended) experience.


Abbey (and Stephenie) are truly animal people. At Calling All Paws, you get service straight to your door, avoiding the stress of taking your dog or cat to the groomer, individualized care and attention customized for your pet, no dangerous cage driers, no being left in crates for hours, just love, attention, and a cleaned up cat or dog. Abbey has groomed many cats for me, both personal and foster, and helped detect a skin condition on a foster cat in time to have the cat treated and made comfortable. This cat had feline leukemia and was dying. Abbey honored him with a beautiful lion cut and he spent his last days clean, comfortable, and well cared for. It was a beautiful thing. Abbey has groomed cats for me that I could barely touch, she’s truly an animal whisperer. Many of my friends have had their dogs or cats groomed by Abbey and/or Stephenie and my friends gush appreciation for my referral. Very professional, reasonably priced, caring, and fun to work with. I wish I could give 10 stars.



OH! Griff and I love Abbey. She is always so sweet to Griff and always on time. She is extra sweet to my little boy since she knows that Griff is a rescue and has been abused in the past. Calling all Paws is awesome! When you ask questions and have concerns – they are quick to respond. I have recommended them and will continue to do so. Thanks for your services!

Calling All Paws is awesome! From start to finish Bella is treated so well. She comes in happy, clean and with a great haircut. Such a stress free grooming environment versus sitting in a crate for a few hours under a dryer. Would recommend Calling All Paws to any pet owner!



Cat was wonderful! Sophie looks great and very happy! It was very easy to have the mobile service instead of taking her to the groomer and I will definitely be calling them again for her next appointment. I’m extremely happy with Calling All Paws!!

Lydia was my groomer and she was so gentle with my senior Shih Tzu. My dog gets nervous, but I must admit, they hit it off really well for a first time. I’ve already scheduled my next appointment.


Third time using Calling All Paws for our dog Jr’s grooming needs. I highly recommend using them. They never disappoint. 


WE LOVE Calling All Paws and I highly recommend them. You are missing out if you don’t have your dog groomed with Calling All Paws. I hated having to drop of Ruby at 7:30 in the morning and pick her up after 4:00. She’d have to sit in a cage all day until it was her turn. She hated it too and she would put her brakes on when going up to the groomers door! Now, she’s out in the van (which she is happy to jump into!) for about an hour and then right back in the house. She’s a long haired dog so the hour might just be for her. Abbey is wonderful and takes pictures and videos! 🙂 


My dog had his first grooming with Calling All Paws today and I could not be happier. Everything was on time and was done perfectly. A+ 


AMAZING! We have an almost 8yr old Pom who has never been groomed. I was always scared a groomer would shave him (on top of him not liking to be brushed). You guys were the best. I would absolutely recommend you and will be making regular appointments for Boz. I can’t thank you enough. He came back super happy and cute and fluffy.

I’ve used Calling All Paws for my two adopted Foxhounds. Abbey gave them both their first bath, and is extremely patient and caring. She took her time with each part of the process, letting them get used to it before moving on. I have no doubt that without her positive attitude and patient treatment it would have been a much more stressful experience! As a bonus, the hounds leave with adorable themed/seasonal bandanas. I will definitely use Calling All Paws again and recommend them for anyone, especially if you have a pet that has never been groomed or gets nervous during grooming!



Our Mini Schnauzer, Remus, is a bit of a persnickety dog in his older age and we decided to look into mobile grooming after a not-so-wonderful experience at another standard grooming facility. We were super excited when we discovered that a mobile groomer was available in our neck of the woods and Abbey has far exceeded our expectations with her professional and friendly attitude. Abbey has been grooming Remus for well over a year now and she always does a PHENOMENAL job!! She is very communicative and prompt and it’s very apparent that she loves animals as well as her job – she always makes sure to say ‘Hi’ to our cats each visit. What sealed the deal for us is that Remus is so much calmer and happier post-groom and he always looks and smells fantastic too!



Stephenie is awesome with our Little Foot! As soon as she came to the door he ran to her! When she was leaving he went to her to say goodbye! She grooms him just the way I like. I’m never disappointed!! Thank you Stephenie so much!!

This was my first time having my little Maltese groomed by Calling All Paws. They were right on time and Stephenie did a beautiful job on my little Lilly. I will be using them again. I just have re-appointed right then and there but we got sidetracked talking about Lilly! Highly Recommend!!!


Loved our loving and efficient service with our two dogs. They were done to what we asked and the dogs were very happy and not stressed out like when they go to a public groomer. I highly recommend them for your dogs!
