Here at Ribble Valley Paws we have just opened up a brand new shop in Whalley, Lancashire in January 2020- we were previously based in Waddington, Clitheroe. 

Sophie the business owner has been grooming since 2017 with a Level 3 City and Guilds Diploma in Dog Grooming and Canine First Aid Trained.

We offer many different types of grooms to which will depend on the breed and coat type along with what the owner would like. If you need an advise on grooming please get in touch and we will be happy to discuss the options. 

At Ribble Valley Paws we know some dogs may need training to enjoy being groomed and lots of praise, not all dogs will stand perfectly still for an hour whilst being touched on every body part so we aim to make every dog comfortable. If your dog has had previous bad experience with groomers please get in touch and we can talk about different methods to help gain their confidence back. All grooming is one to one and your dogs are never caged. 

We offer 

  • Hand Stripping - wire haired and soft coated breeds 

  • Clipping 

  • Hand Scissoring 

  • De-shed for the double coated breeds 

All grooms will include a bath with two shampoo's to get the dogs coat really clean, blast and blow dry, styling, ear cleaning and nails clipping - if needed and some pawfume. You can add extra's such as teeth cleaning, ear hair removal or any other special requirement. 

Please note we do not empty anal glands as this should be done by a vet or vet nurse. 

All prices are different for each dog depending on the breed and what is required. Feel free to get in touch for a free quote at or you can find us on Facebook! 

"I can highly recommend Ribble Valley Paws, they have walked my 3 dogs for over a year. It’s great that they get to walk and socialise with other dogs. Sophie and the team are flexible and accommodating so if I need extra walks during the week they will fit us in. And the pictures they take are outstanding, it’s obvious the dogs love their walks with Katie"
