Pet Differently: Discover the Difference

Pet Differently

Doing Good

Power of Positivity

At Salty Dawg, a fundamental point of difference is the “Be Nice (Or Else!)” culture created by Winn Claybaugh for Paul Mitchell Schools.

Our Pet Stylists bring the “Be Nice” culture to your pets and to our partner charities. Your pets feed off of energy. Good Energy = Good Experience!

Salty Dawg’s co-founders have been instrumental in helping the nationwide network of Paul Mitchell Schools raise more than $23 million for charity, including $700,000 for animal-related nonprofit organizations, donated through the Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation. The primary animal-related recipients include American Humane Society, Best Friends Animal Society, and Morris Animal Foundation.

Serving Local Communities

We’re always looking for ways to serve our local communities. From providing free grooming and baths at a local pet shelter to helping promote the adoption of pets or raising awareness for pet-related causes, if there’s a pet in need in our community, we’ll be there to lend a hand (or a paw).


A Culture of Kindness and Philanthropy

We strive to attract and hire Paul Mitchell graduates who have learned and lived the culture of kindness, philanthropy, and giving back throughout their education. This same culture is instilled in Salty Dawg and shared with all of our pet customers.


A Commitment to Giving Back

At Salty Dawg, we understand the importance of giving back. Although Salty Dawg may be a new player in the pet grooming industry, the brand’s founders have been in the beauty and hair industry for over 40 years and have an impressive record of investing in their communities. They bring the same ideology and ambition to make the world a better place by giving back to those in need.


Rethinking Pet Grooming

When people visit a salon, they expect a great haircut, style, and service, and they also expect an experience. Why should your pet be any different?
