Auntie M's Paw Spa Alamo
My name is Michiele Lombardo, the founder and owner of Auntie M’s Paw Spa. My team and I look forward to pampering your beloved dog in our cage-free facility divided into three size-based areas. We also offer separate spaces for dogs requiring additional attention due to aggression, disabilities, aging needs. For your pet’s comfort and safety, we use restraint-free grooming techniques, though this can prove challenging when pet parents unexpectedly visit mid-service.
We kindly request that you wait for our call informing you when your dog is freshly primped and ready to go home before stopping by. Our doors are open so you can freely observe our processes, as transparency and building trust are important to us. We allocate 6-8 hours per dog to allow for breaks, playtime with other pups, and a relaxing spa day rather than a stressful experience.
With over 45 years as a groomer, I have seen the gamut of dog grooming scenarios and opted to create a calm, no-stress environment here at Auntie M’s, where dogs seem to truly enjoy their visits. We pride ourselves on taking a gentle approach to working with every precious pup. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
Our mission is to groom your dog at the highest standards and to treat your babies with much love and care. We do not want your dog to be stressed or hate the grooming experience — we want them to be happy and well-groomed when leaving Auntie M’s. If your dog comes in matted we will discuss the options to you but at no time will spend hours brushing out mattes that will put your dog through much pain and stress.
If your dog comes to us severely matted, we will discuss options with you, as we will not subject them to hours of painful dematting brushing. In cases of heavy matting, we may recommend a shave down for their wellbeing. For minor matting, we carefully cut out the knots and proceed with a regular haircut.
We specialize in stylish, fluffy cuts – not unnecessary shave downs. I am highly educated on coat lengths ideal for dogs’ comfort in various weather conditions. I am always happy to have connect with pet parents about the benefits of maintaining a healthy coat length rather than overly shearing for perceived cooling purposes or other unfounded reasons. Please reach out with any questions or concerns about your pup’s grooming needs.
Our puppy program is designed to create a positive, fear-free first grooming experience while allowing adult coats to grow in naturally.
We will not actually cut a puppy’s hair until they are developmentally ready, usually around their 5th or 6th visit. Until then, we focus on gentle handling and desensitization to grooming routines so they become comfortable with the process. Forcing coat removal on a puppy can damage proper coat growth.
We look forward to years of pampering your pups and helping you achieve your grooming goals. Please reach out to us for any advice you need regarding care for your furry friends. We are happy to discuss solutions to any challenges you may be having.
