Where Compassionate Pet Grooming Meets Joyful Experiences in Port St. Lucie

Our Mission at Paws Required

Welcome to Paws Required! Our guiding star is to gift your pet a delightful, holistic grooming experience, enveloped in care and respect. We’ve often had clients share tales of past grooming nightmares where their beloved pets weren’t treated with the love they deserve. That’s a story you’ll never recount when you choose us.

However, ensuring a smooth, stress-free grooming session is a dance between us, you, and your fur baby. Here are a few things we’d like you to keep in mind:


Swift but Sweet

We aim for efficiency in our grooming sessions, not just for our sake but for your pet’s comfort too. While we adore spending time with your pets, a quicker session means less stress for them and a bit of rest for us!

Professional but Not Magicians

Yes, we’re trained, but if your pet won’t let you groom them at home, expecting a miracle from us is a bit much. Cooperation from your furry one makes a significant difference.

Quality Grooming is an Investment

Good grooming might come with a price tag, but it’s essential for your pet’s wellbeing. And let’s be honest; your pet’s grooming session is a tad more complicated than your haircut.

Quality Over Speed

Quick grooming won’t cover all bases. If you want a thorough job (and you should), allow us the time to dot the i’s and cross the t’s meticulously.

Tangled Tales

If you skip the ‘brushy-brushy’, we might have to go ‘shavey-shavey’. Matting is painful, and we won’t subject your pet to the stress of detangling. If you dream of a fluffy look, regular brushing between grooming sessions is key.

Tick-Tock Doesn’t Matter to a Dog

You might be watching the clock, but your pet isn’t. While we provide an estimated pick-up time, your pet might not be on the same timeline.

Sit Still? Says Who?

Pets wiggle; they’re excited or nervous. A little movement is expected, so perfection might take a moment.

The Grooming Table Phenomenon

Once on the grooming table, some pets transform amusingly. Your angel might discover their mischievous side. Patience, understanding, and a sense of humor on all our parts go a long way!
