We’re in the business of making you smile



about us

Welcome to Dirty Paws Pet Salon! When you walk into our salon, instantly you realize that we are a step above the rest. We felt that Bay City was most definitely ready for an upscale dog grooming experience. Dirty Paws Pet Salon has been a family owned business for 3 decades and is located in beautiful Bay City. We insist on a clean and safe environment for you and your dog. Our groomers have apprenticed under the close supervision of Elizabeth Galiardi and have evolved into Master Groomers in their own right. They have been with our company for over 10 years and will give your dog the best care possible. All of us strive to give you a more personal experience and help you to differentiate us from competitors.

Every dog has a tail to tell… We listen to our clients on both sides of the leash. Our entire team puts love into their craft so you can trust that your dog is in the most confident, capable and skilled hands possible. Our experience guides us to help you care for your fur baby. All of us enjoy having your best friend hang out with us. They participate in all kinds of fun from belly rubs, bubble baths and sometimes our lunch! We take them through the grooming process gently, taking steps to allow them to rest and make themselves comfortable. Your dog becomes part of our family and we care for them just as we do our own. Its so true that when you find what you love, you’ll never have to work again…



Our Services



We offer a grooming session with you and your dog’s needs in mind. It is essential to their well being and health to be groomed on a regular schedule. Upon the time of your arrival, we will help you to decide the haircut that is best suited for you and your dogs’s lifestyle. At Dirty Paws Pet Salon we tend to your dog from head to tail, literally! Our team examines their skin, ears, teeth, toenails and anything in between before and during their grooming. If we find any issues one of our team members will discuss it with you at the time of pickup and answer any of your questions. We look forward to meeting you both!


We love soaping up your dog! They become such cuddle bugs when they're fresh from the tub. If you're short on time and don’t want to get wet, our bathing session is designed with you in mind. We don’t just give them a bath, we massage them with an extraordinarily versatile shampoo that achieves “Best in Show’ results and leaves coats lustrous.

Toenail Trims

If you’re just in need of a toenail trim for your dog, it won’t take us long. You’ll be home in plenty of time for a walk with your best friend! Keeping your dog’s toenails trimmed regularly is part of their overall grooming. This is such an important step in maintaining their health for years to come. We recommend trimming their toenails every two to four weeks. We offer this as a walk in service between 8am & 4pm.


We give your fur baby a couple of potty breaks throughout their visit. It helps them to relax and get a little exercise in too! We offer them water and also a treat to reinforce their good behavior. If they are on a restricted diet, please let us know. Our goal as always is to help them to feel at home during their stay with us.

Puppy Trims

The sooner the better! Puppies are so smart and eager to learn. That’s why we like to introduce them to the steps that go into keeping them well groomed at an early age. It’s at this delicate stage in their life that we want their grooming experience to be a positive, safe and an enjoyable one.


As groomers we recognize the need to help you care for your dog’s skin and scalp. We offer an array of specialty shampoos. If your Veterinarian prescribes a medicated shampoo bring it with you and we will follow their directions.

Special Care

Puppies, elderly dogs and fur babies with special needs are cared for with compassionate and loving hands. We take pride in how well they respond to us. Dirty Paws Pet Salon has in place the team to be able to accomplish this and meet all of their needs.

I have been in love with dogs as long as I can remember. I could not imagine living a life without them...
