"If I could give 10 stars, I would. Dawn is incredibly perceptive and makes every visit to our house to trim my dog's nails go as smoothly and without stress as possible for him. Her understanding of animal behaviorism shows through her attention to her work and ever-constant positive praise as she is working with my dog. The Pawdicures website is well-organized and makes for easy scheduling, and the emails that come to confirm an appointment are very clear about the process and what to have prepped before the appointment (mainly, just having lots of tasty treats on hand!). Ultimately, though, the best recommendation comes from my dog, who runs to the door to greet Dawn with every visit."

"I love Pawdicures!!!! Dawn is so amazing with our dog and has made his nail trims an experience that he actually looks forward to. I used to dread taking him to the vet for a nail trim but Dawn comes to our house and she does such an amazing job. Our dog's nails had grown very long and she uses a technique that helps the quicks of the nails recede so after a few trims they are now normal! I can't recommend her enough."

-Hilary A.


"I had basically given up having my elderly dog's nails trimmed because it was impossible to lift him into the car to get him to the vet. The day I saw the Pawdicures car parked at my neighbor's house, our lives changed for the better. Ever since then, my boy has been getting in-home pawdicures and his mobility (and quality of life) is greatly improved. I am beyond thrilled to have found Pawdicures."

"I love these people! My pups are on a two week recurring schedule and it's so convenient. They keep my key on file, send me a text reminder when they're coming, trim my dogs' nails, and charge the card I keep on file all while I'm at work. No more clicking nails on MY tile! The pups have never been happier. Highly recommend!"

-Adrianne M.


"I absolutely adore Pawdicures! Dawn is professional, kind and excellent at keeping my labrador's nails short. I no longer worry about trimming them myself, and instead of wrestling a 90lbs dog, I simply feed her treats and let Dawn work her magic! I highly recommend this service to anyone with a dog. You won't be disappointed!"

"Pawdicures is wonderful. Dawn is very experienced, and loves animals. My yellow lab/husky mix was a little nervous at first but Dawn was gentle and knew how to handle her paws to make it comfortable for my dog. I can tell she has passion for what she does. A+"

-Ashleigh A.


"I have been super happy with the nail trim service. My dog was very skittish about me trimming her nails in the first place, and trying to get it done with two small children around was much too chaotic. So her nails got way too long, and taking her to the dog spa or vet repeatedly was not happening. Then I found Pawdicures. Dawn has been super helpful in suggesting how to proceed with getting my dog's nails into good shape and keeping them that way. Now I have them on a recurring appointment schedule so that it won't get out of hand (paw?) again."
