Paws of Distinction commenced dog grooming in Adelaide in April 2014 after taking the “leash” from LuvDog which has been operating in the Beulah Park area since 2010.
Paws of Distinction is owner operated by Amanda, who has over ten years of professional dog grooming experience in all breeds of dogs.
Amanda and her team provide services that range from the simple dog wash to the full works.
At Paws of Distinction we provide a professional and caring dog grooming service for both dog and owner, and deliver quality and superior grooms in a safe and happy environment.
You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Google+.
Unfortunately mobile dog wash service is no longer available.
About The Team
Amanda - Owner & Groomer
As mentioned previously, I have been dog grooming in Adelaide for over ten years.
While studying Certificate III in Animal Technology, I was lucky enough to gain employment at a dog grooming salon where I started with the basic dog wash.
Growing up in the South Australian country I was used to washing my blue heeler and kelpie on the back lawn with a hose, so this was a new experience for me.
Potential was seen and this led to me training as a dog groomer and becoming a part of the industry.
After six years I then moved on to a newly established dog grooming salon, where after a few years I was employed as manager.
Just over five years later a rare opportunity came up to purchase a newly set up salon, ‘Luvdog’, and here we are today.
I very much enjoy what I do, from a basic dog wash to a full dog grooming session. I am looking forward to building this new business as ‘Paws of Distinction’ and to be providing a quality dog grooming service in Adelaide.
Look forward to seeing all new and existing pooches and their owners soon.
