A note from Louise: Sootypaws will still be open during lockdown

Following Government and Canine & Feline Sector Group Covid-19 guidance on pet businesses, the salon will remain open during lockdown and dog owners are permitted legally to travel to an appointment that is for animal welfare purposes.

I look forward to meeting you and your best friend at their appointment and following social distancing and hand hygiene to ensure a safe handover.

Stay safe and well and thank you all for your continued support of the salon. Lou x

See what more people are saying about SootyPaws

I spoke to Louise about grooming my rescue dog Teddy who is still extremely nervous when being handled, but has a very thick coat that needed a professional groom. Louise spent the first 30 mins just talking & petting Teddy to get him as calm as possible and used a body bandage technique to make him feel more secure. This method worked! and Teddy even had a bath!! He looked fantastic after and is now much more comfortable for the summer. I can now feel relieved that Teddy will be able to be groomed with the minimum stress to him. I will however only be visiting Louise at Sooty Paws for his future treatments....

Hello, my name is Louise and I am the owner of Sooty Paws dog grooming and spa salon based in Slapton, South Hams, Devon.

You can be assured that your pet is in safe hands as I hold a City and Guild Level 2 & 3 qualification in dog grooming, qualifying in November 2015, regularly attend industry training events to keep up-to-date, Pet First Aid trained and am currently studying for the level 3 diploma. I have operated my salon since April 2016 and please take a look at some of my work in the grooming gallery. I am also a member of PIFA (Pet Industry Federation Association, a Reiki second degree USUI system Therapist and am fully insured.

I also live with my own lovely cockapoo who I adore but who also keeps me very busy on the grooming front so all Doodle owners I do understand your grooming challenges and over the years have had the pleasure of living with 2 Persian cats, 4 hamsters, 3 guinea pigs and several goldfish although the later was difficult to groom!
