Meet The Team

Amy Elliott-Smith, owner of the paw pad


Amy founded The Paw Pad in 2007 having worked with dogs for a decade beforehand. Initially she worked from her home in Anderton offering dog grooming but quickly expanded into dog groomer training. In late 2015, she relocated The Paw Pad to Wincham following large demand for daycare.


We have yet to find a dog who doesn’t love Alastair! He spends all day everyday ensuring your dog is happy; whether throwing balls for the pups or tucking up the older dogs so they can have a comfortable sleep, he is a veritable dog whisperer – your pooch couldn’t be in better hands.
The folks here at The Paw Pad are passionate about dogs, and we love our work, making them look great in our dog grooming salon or training our students to start their own careers with one of our dog grooming courses. We wake up every day happy and excited to be working with dogs.
