Best Professional Mobile Dog
Groomer in Utah! 

Mobile Pet Groomer in West valley city, UT

Tara's Background:

My name is Tara and I am the owner/groomer of Paws on the Go LLC. I started my business in Orlando in 2015 before relocating to Salt Lake City in 2018. I have been a dog and animal lover my entire life, and have always wanted to work with them. Early in 2006, while I was in college, I started working as a bather/brusher and immediately fell in love with the job. After receiving my bachelor's degree from the University of Tampa, I trained to become a groomer and have been doing it ever since!

What is the mission of your salon?

Over the years, I have learned a lot about dogs and what makes them all so special. I created Paws on the Go LLC in 2015 so that I could provide quality grooming services while establishing a close relationship with my clients. There is a lot more to grooming than simply making a dog look pretty, and I strive to provide the best service possible. Understanding dog behavior and being knowledgeable about medical issues is crucial, and I have studied various topics to help me in my line of work.

What are some of your experiences?

My experience with animals actually goes back to elementary school, when I began taking horseback riding lessons. Shortly after, I joined a local 4-H club dedicated to horses and spent the next several years learning to care for them. I also began taking private show jumping lessons during high school. Later on, I helped form the Equestrian Club at the University of Tampa and was president for a couple of years.

Fun facts about Tara.

While I was in college, I also was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to volunteer at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium for a few years, working with rescued and rehabilitated marine animals. I mostly helped feed and care for sea turtles, and occasionally gave presentations on them. I also worked with the dolphins and river otters there, assisting the trainers during their feeding and training sessions, as well as participating in the presentations.

You're a dog lover. But are you a dog owner?   "Yes!"

I currently have two dogs, Ciri, a Belgian Malinois, and Aela, a mixed breed. I enjoy taking them hiking. And what a beautiful state to explore...Utah. You will also find me regularly participating  in obedience lessons and dock diving with Ciri.
