about our team

Urban Dog SPAW sets itself apart from other Fort Saskatchewan grooming businesses by offering a full canine “SPAW” experience.

All employees are required to continue their education in the grooming field by attending seminars, trade shows and workshops. We feel that it’s important for groomers to remain current and knowledgeable in order to provide clients with the safest and most efficient grooming experience.
