We love our Four Pretty Paws family and we know that you will, too! Not only are they experienced groomers, but more importantly, they are a group of kind, patient, and passionate people who strive to provide the best grooming experience for pets and the people that love them.
Amanda has been grooming for over 10 years. She would consider herself the biggest dog lover you’ll ever meet! She was first introduced to grooming by a friend and realized she found her passion from day one. Outside of grooming, Amanda spends a lot of her time helping with animal rescue. For the past 12 years she has volunteered for multiple rescue organizations around St. Louis fostering, transporting, and working adoption events.
Karen is our most experienced grooming with over 16 years of experience. She always knew she wanted to work with animals and make people’s lives a little bit better, one dog at a time! The look on a client’s face when they see how well their fur baby looks, makes it all worth it. Never shy to try new things, Karen attacks each day with enthusiasm with the goal to make a lasting impression and memories with her family and friends.
After a long search to find a career that worked closely with animals, Jennifer found grooming three years ago and has never looked back. She loves knowing that she is giving everyone’s fur baby the grooming experience she would want someone to give to her dog. She recognizes that it can be scary leaving your baby in someone else’s hands, so her calm, sweet and patient disposition shines through removing all those concerns with both dogs and the people that love them. When she is not spending time on her craft, you can find Jennifer either traveling or riding horses, which she has done since she was younger.
Six years ago, Michele was looking for a career change and decided to do something she loved, so working with dogs was an easy decision. In addition to being a certified pet stylist, she is also a certified dog trainer. Her experience as a dog trainer is a tremendous asset when working with dogs who have never been groomed before and dogs who are a little unsure of the grooming process. Outside of work, she is dedicated to her family and dogs. Michele expresses her creative side through music, painting, sewing, home decorating and gardening.
Shortly after graduating from college over 10 years ago, Stacy found her calling in grooming. She enjoys the creativity it takes to make each pet look his/her best and thrives in an ever-changing environment like pet grooming. She loves how each pet is unique and endearing. When not grooming, Stacy cannot get away from her love of animals! She enjoys competing in local and national dog agility trials. She also relishes spending time with her family, and binging TV shows while working on whatever crochet project is on her hook.
Maggie always knew working with animals was her calling which is why her very first job at 14 years old was working at the town’s vet clinic cleaning kennels. A groomer for over 13 years, Maggie loves being a groomer because it allows her to bring comfort to pets throughout their entire lives, whether it’s calming their fears during their first haircuts or being extra gentle when they are old and fragile. Outside of grooming, Maggie loves hiking and playing geocache with her family.
Ashley started grooming in 2007. After a couple of years of grooming, she took a break to become an animal control officer. Her passion for animal safety and the wellbeing of all the four-legged furry friends she meets is contagious! She loves making dogs feel good and look pretty! She spends most of her free time with family, friends and playing with her pets.
With her strong desire to help dogs look and feel better, Sarah decided to become a groomer in 2016. This is a decision that has been confirmed every day since. When she is not grooming, Sarah enjoys going to the movies, the zoo, playing mini golf and most of the time just hanging out with my husband watching tv all day.

We had a fur baby long before we welcomed our human babies into the family. When our first furry friend, Javea, became geriatric and blind, we looked to mobile grooming to keep her clean and comfortable. After one bad experience turned into multiple bad experiences, we were frustrated. We were treated poorly, phone calls were not returned and groomers were not friendly. Now, we are excited to bring our love of pets and business expertise to Saint Louis families whose work is demanding, schedules are filled and weekends are busy. We understand how life can get crazy and, sometimes, we don’t have the hours in our schedules to keep our furry friends clean and looking dapper. That’s where we can help. We care about pets, but we also care about your time. And we’re looking to put some time back into your busy schedule. Our goal is not only great grooming, but a great customer experience.
We would love to hear from you to let us know if we are living up to your expectations or if you have any questions. contact us.
