They are the first business of their kind in Oxford, and owner Kellie Owens takes the treatment of clients’ “canine children” seriously. Beyond just grooming, the Spaw provides unique services such as bubble baths, pet facials and paw nail polishing. At the Spaw, the pet always comes first.

Benefits of In-Home-Pet-Care
In-home pet care is ideal for families with multiple pets, older pets, pets with special needs, or just deservedly spoiled! Their care is personalized to suit their unique needs. Should any health concerns arise, your pet will be taken to their veterinarian on record, or an emergency veterinarian will be contacted. Reduce your pet’s stress and anxiety while you are away by eliminating boarding at the vet or kennel upsetting both you and your pet(s). No more unnecessary time away from home due to limited kennel drop off and pick up hours. Best of all, they are home to greet you when you return! You can enjoy your time away knowing your furry family members are in trusted, loving hands.
What You Can Expect
Daily progress reports are provided documenting your pet’s activities, behavior, and mood during their daily visits with their pet nanny. A wellness assessment is completed each day. Your pet’s appetite level, water intake, bowel movements and urination activity is monitored to ensure your pet is happy, healthy and safe. No more than 6 hours will lapse between daytime visits. Water is refreshed each visit, food and water bowls are washed after each meal, dogs are offered two “potty breaks” during each visit, and litter is maintained daily. Your pet’s will maintain their daily routine and get lots of love and attention from their pet nanny.
Each team member is furnished with a tool bag like none other. From hygiene to fun, our team is ready for action. Their “Nanny Bag”, filled with brushes, combs, breathe foam, ear cleaner, tweezers, scissors, nail trimmers, baby wipes, ball-launchers, kitty toys, lasers, cat nip, Happy-Dog Aromatherapy Spray, leashes, harnesses and treats, treats, treats, prepares each nanny for anything they may encounter.
