Welcome

Prim and Paw-purr is a full service pet grooming facility offering only the highest quality care for your pets. All breeds of cats and dogs welcome.

My name is Sarah Perkins. I graduated from the Twin City School Of Pet Grooming in 1991 and have been grooming professionally ever since. Being a member of the Minnesota Professional Pet Groomers Association and the International Society of Canine Cosmetology has helped me keep up to date on my education. Competition has helped me keep my skills fresh in the industry. Entering my first grooming competition in 1994 and taking 2nd place in Creative Grooming had me hooked. I have recieved much recognition over the years and the awards I am most proud of are winning Best All Around Groomer, Best In Show, and Best Groomed Dog. The most exciting prize I have won was $10,000 through the local radio station 93X.

Grooming in Mounds View, Blaine, and Ham Lake over the past almost 18 years has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of great people and their pets. I love running into pet owners around town, because we always get a good laugh out of the fact that I don't always recognize the humans name or face right away, but can throw the pets' name and breed right off the cuff.

I care a great deal about the animals I work with and always take into consideration what is best for each individual animal. Though my prices are reasonable, I maintain very high standards. No one is ever surprised when they pick up their pet. Each client will know exactly what type of hair style their pet will have and know the price. There is extensive communication with each client before each and every grooming. I never push pets beyond their limits. There is a solution for every issue. Maybe it is giving the pet a break, setting up a return visit a day or two later, or having the owner stay with the pet for the grooming. Whatever it takes for the animal to have a good experience is what is most important. Educating pet owners is the key. It is important for us to work together pertaining to specific needs of your pet to maintain a healthy animal, coat, and to keep everyone happy. I want you to come back. I work for you and I will not treat you like I am doing YOU a favor. Going an extra mile to keep a client for life is what it is all about. I take a lot of pride in the quality of work I do and want to give you the best service possible.

My location is very easy to find. See the map on the contact page and feel free to call if you have any questions. The Finn Farm is the big beautiful barn directly south of the Shell gas Station that is located on the south-east corner of Lexington Ave and Main St (242). The grooming entrance to the shop is clearly marked on the gate.

Thanks for visiting my site and I look forward to having the chance to earn your business.

Sincerely,

Sarah Perkins Owner Operator of Prim and Paw-purr Pet Grooming
