Welcome to Paws 4 Applause Dog Grooming

Paws 4 Applause is owned by Lisa Jane Smith (LJ) and Amy Hannah Lewis.

LJ & Amy have spent the last 10 years performing overseas as professional singers, working for a variety of companies such as Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, carnival Cruises and many more.

Why Dog Grooming you ask?
Easy answer: There’s no place like home!

LJ & Amy have spent so many years traveling they thought it was time to settle back at home in Narraweena on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, doing a job they love (working with animals). In wanting to open a dog grooming salon the girls looked for a grooming school that offered a longer period of training than normal, and so they travelled to Arizona (USA) to attend “It’s a Dogs World” School of Grooming for an intensive study of grooming. There they groomed every kind of dog possible; puppy dogs, pregnant dogs, shelter dogs, show dogs and much loved pets, graduating from the school having groomed over 500 dogs between them.

We want your dogs experience to be fun and loving, so expect plenty of cuddles, kisses and TLC from us at Paws 4 Applause.

We don’t leave your dog tied up all day. We have two separate ‘chill out’ areas for the dogs once they’ve been groomed. One area for the senior dogs (or those who’d prefer not to play with others), and one area for the more playful pups who are happy to socialise with others. We also understand that some dogs feel safer in a cage, so we can cater for all. We have toys to play with while they wait to be picked up, a bathroom area, comfy beds and a water bowl.

Our grooming experience is a little different in that we don’t rush the dogs because we don’t want to stress them out. Every now and then we stop for a cuddle, a chat, a song or a treat! We prefer the gentle approach and treat each dog as if it were our own.

Because safety is important to us we require you to bring all of your dogs current vaccination certificates for us to view on your first appointment. This is for the safety of all dogs as well as our friendly staff.

There are plenty of other business around us in May road, so why not pamper yourself at the same time – have your hair done, your nails manicured, grab a bite to eat or make your way down to either Warringah Mall or Dee Why Grand, which are just around the corner! Just remember our hours are from 8am (Wed-Sat), by Appointment, and that we are happy to entertain your adorable dog while you shop or relax.

A big thank you to LJ and Amy for taking such great care of our dog Molly. They managed Molly's anxious nature with love and care and worked so well with me in helping to manage her sensitive skin. She was so proud of herself when we picked her up!

I received my training as a groomer with LJ & Amy in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
They love dogs so much and were amongst the best groomers in our class! You can feel very good about leaving your precious animals in their gentle hands!

Our 14mth Belgium Shepherd luvs the girls at Paws 4 Applause as they are not only professional but luv dogs and Chelsee luvs all the extra attention & treats.
She looks so shiny & all her double coat groomed out which keeps our house clean & we're happy with that. Keep up the good work girls!
