Carlisle’s newest dog grooming salon The Muddy Paw opens its doors 

A brand-new dog grooming salon in Carlisle welcomed its first four legged customers in February. 

The Muddy Paw Carlisle is operating from a refurbished grooming salon within popular garden centre, Houghton Hall, located on the northern outskirts of the city. The launch of the Carlisle premises marked the beginning of an expansion venture for the Northampton based firm, owned by James Rubython. The business is starting 2022 with a series of further exciting salon launches, with Carlisle featuring amongst a handful of other UK locations.  

The firm has recruited a team of certified grooming experts to provide its extensive range of services, with Lead Dog Groomer Chanelle McDowell and Dog Grooming Assistant Chloe Watmough, leading the Carlisle branch.

Alongside traditional grooming services including bathing & styling, nail clipping, and hand stripping, the team provide some additional, extra special treatments too. From pawdicures, to deep facial cleanses and puppy pamper packages, there are plenty of options to treat your pooch to.  

The new salon also provides tailored canine wellness treatments too — with a particular focus on pet mental health. On site, the team members can provide advice for owners on specific wellbeing issues, as well as general pet care queries. 

James Rubython from The Muddy Paw commented on the recent launch: “We’ve enjoyed a genuine buzz towards our unique offering in Carlisle, bringing grooming and wellness all under one roof to give owners total convenience.  

We’re placing a lot of emphasis on the link between our services and overall pet wellbeing. For dogs, life after lockdown has meant readjusting to owners being away from home more, leading to increased rates of pet anxiety. Getting your dog into a consistent wellness routine may help to alleviate signs of this, while also giving them more socialisation opportunities too”.  

The Muddy Paw treatment menu is open to all types of dogs, welcoming different breeds and sizes into the salon, where the groomers will keep your pooch comfortable throughout the duration of their appointment.
