Naomi used to be an owner of local pub and decided to convert a room specifically for grooming in 2015. She then moved to Sutton Fields, and carried over the name 'Early Paws' to set up this business as one of the Directors. Naomi slowly built up the company and still does some grooming whilst taking care of everything else! Naomi's dog Erin can always be found in reception - affectionately known as 'Receptionist Erin'.



Meg has always had a passion for dogs, and after a quick diversion at university, she soon found herself completing a Level 3 dog grooming course. After starting in 2017 as a self employed groomer here, she then worked her way up and is now Early Paws kennel manager. Meg has a Greyhound called Eva who comes to work with her every day, so say hi if you see her!

Isaac has been obsessed with dogs since he was a little boy as his granddad rescued dogs throughout his childhood that he helped care for. Isaac then completed a Level 2 Animal Care course at a doggy daycare and moved onto an access course to gain his place on a Canine Behaviour & Training degree, which he is currently working towards. Isaac has a lovely 10 year old rescue Staffie.
