Amy Carter and Sharon Longman met while attending Petite Pooch Grooming School in 2006. They soon realized that they had a lot in common and became quick friends. Utilizing their previous business experience as manager of a dental laboratory and 23 years in management at Verizon respectively, they opened their first grooming salon in Valley Ranch called Paw Spa. This salon was located within the offices of Valley Ranch Pet Clinic with Dr. Greg Rouchon. After two years it was time to move to a larger location where they are today at 10045 North MacArthur, Suite 121, Irving, TX. This location has allowed much more visibility being across the street from the Dallas Cowboys Practice Facility. They have been in this location for five years.
In 2012 Amy Carter became Amy Graf and after a year of commuting she made the decision to leave the grooming business and move to the beautiful countryside of Ivanhoe, TX with her husband. Sharon Longman is now the sole owner of the business.
This salon is known today as Tuxedo Paws and encompasses all the same great staff and services. This is truly a place for the ultimate dog lover. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
