Paula has had the pleasure of working with dogs for over 20 years, and her love of animals has been lifelong. 

Her desire to understand and continue to learn about dogs is unending.  Beginning as a Veterinary Assistant, then becoming a Professional Dog Groomer, and lastly, a Certified Dog Trainer, Paula’s joy is in working with people and their dogs. 

Helping to educate dog owners who are seeking guidance, whether it be with training a new pup, working through a behavioral issue, or managing their dog’s grooming needs is what Paula finds most rewarding.

She understands that as her clients strive to do the very best by their dog, it can sometimes be challenging or even stressful when deciding to seek help from a professional.  Her goal is to help instill confidence in both the families and their dogs so they may enjoy a respectful, fun, and loving relationship for years to come.


“Dogs bring so much joy to our lives and it amazes me daily.  All I have to do is gaze upon my dog and my heart lifts.  Our dogs need the very best from us.  They deserve it.”
