| Our Services

Here at IthaPaws we treat your pets like our own! We want every pet in our care to feel safe, happy, and loved! We know not all pups love grooming, so we take our time and help them to understand the process to the best of our ability. They get breaks to play or rest, and one-on-one attention from the groomer they are placed with. Most of the dogs see the same groomer every time they come in to help build a trusting relationship. We are an AKC Certified Safe Salon, which means we have taken and passed classes specifically designed by the American Kennel Club to ensure the safety of your beloved pet.

Karina Mayo - Owner/Groomer

I was taught to groom by a very special person, Nikki Ormsby. I have been grooming for 8 years and have been working with dogs since I was 8. I was active in the 4H program and enjoyed obedience, agility, and grooming and handling. I also fostered many dogs over the years. In my spare time, I love to go to the dog park with my 8 year old Yorkshire Terrier, Gary. We also enjoy hiking, walking around the commons in Ithaca, cuddling on the couch, and dog sitting for our fur friends. My favorite breeds to groom are border collies, yorkies, and a variety of other breeds. Feel free to stop in any time and visit Gary and I!

Cierra Jensen - Owner/Groomer

I have been grooming for 7 years and have worked with dogs my whole life. I have trained many dogs in obedience, agility, grooming and handling, and tracking. I have fostered a few dogs as well, and I always enjoy pet sitting. Grooming is my passion! I am an AKC Safety Certified Groomer. I love every breed, but a few of my favorites are American Staffordshire Terriers, Golden Doodles, and Poodles. I have one dog of my own, Maddy - a 9 year old American Staffordshire Terrier mix. In our spare time, we enjoy going to training sessions, hiking the Ithaca trails, fishing, and camping. Come visit Maddy and I at the salon. We hope to see you soon!

Shelby West - Groomer

I have been working with animals my entire life, but dogs are by far my favorite. As a high school student I was a member of the FFA and followed my passion of animals to college where I studied veterinary science before IthaPaws. I have been grooming for 3 years now. I have one dog of my own, a 1 year old South African Boerboel named Oso. Much of my spare time is spent training, hiking, and cuddling with my pup, but I also enjoy being outside, kayaking, drawing, and cooking. Stop by and say hi!
