Warm, Welcoming Environment For Pets At Puppy Cuts Pet Spa

Owners Debbie Hornfeldt and Denise Catalano work with a four-legged client.

Nestled in the heart of the western communities is Puppy Cuts Pet Spa, a grooming salon owned and operated by Debra Hornfeldt and Denise Catalano. With a combined history of grooming expertise spanning more than three decades, Hornfeldt and Catalano have cultivated a warm and welcoming environment for pets and their owners.

Hornfeldt’s journey in the grooming industry began many years ago, serving communities throughout Palm Beach County including Wellington, Royal Palm Beach and the Acreage/Loxahatchee area.

If her name and face seem familiar to pet owners in the western communities, it is because she recently broadened her horizon after decades at another local grooming salon, and ventured into opening her own establishment, where she could put her years of expertise to work in an atmosphere that she feels all animals deserve.

Alongside her is Catalano, whose passion for pet care and grooming shines through in every aspect of the Puppy Cuts operation. With their combined years of experience and attention to detail, joined by the entire team at Puppy Cuts, they offer what they believe is the best pet experience in town.

Puppy Cuts Pet Spa offers a comprehensive range of grooming services, from dematting and shedding fur to luxurious medicated baths. Their commitment to excellence extends to their handling of even the most challenging of pets, with a focus on gentle techniques and personalized care protocols.

At Puppy Cuts, the well-being of every pet is paramount. With meticulous mindfulness and dedication to safety, the staff ensures that each grooming session is a stress-free and enjoyable experience for pets of all breeds and sizes.

“We treat every pet as if they were our own,” Catalano said. “It’s all about creating a positive and enjoyable experience for both the pet and their owner.”

“We want it to also be fun for the pets as well,” Hornfeldt added.

Puppy Cuts Pet Spa also aims to serve as a beacon of community engagement. They believe in giving back within the industry and caring for pets that may not have the same opportunities. They have begun forging independent relationships with local nonprofit organizations dedicated to the well-being of rescues and look forward to partnering with them for the betterment of the animals, Catalano said.

Along with their willingness to help those in need, a commitment to clients and their furry companions is evident in every aspect of the business, from personalized grooming consultations to their meticulous grooming process.

“We’re not just in it for the money,” Hornfeldt said. “We genuinely love what we do, and it shows in the care and attention we provide to each and every pet.”

Puppy Cuts’ services are tailored to meet the individual needs of each pet. From full grooming packages to specialized treatments for sensitive skin, the team at Puppy Cuts Pet Spa goes above and beyond to ensure client satisfaction.

This has led to a loyal following of satisfied customers and glowing testimonials. “We were so happy to find our favorite groomer Denise,” noted one client. “Puppy Cuts Pet Spa is the only groomer I will go to from now on.”

When asked about what age new pet owners should consider introducing their puppies to the grooming experience, they recommend anywhere from 12 to 14 weeks. By the way, the store can also groom cats.

“Just come by, let them see, smell and hear the salon background noise, say hello to the staff and schedule their appointment,” Hornfeldt said. “We offer free consultations and can talk over any issues or concerns your pet may have and put together a strategic approach to personalize the experience for your pet.”

The day of your pet’s appointment, they will go over the plan again, then off to the open area to get a brush out, clean pads, nails and ears, and then off to the bath. They check skin thoroughly, sometimes recommending using argan oil products for skin and coat. Warm towels are used to give the pet spa feel and begin the drying process before using the blowers. They offer a softer approach for pets that may have a fear of the motor blowers, using a softer one before the groomer begins the clipping process. During this time, they provide ample water and even potty breaks, so your pet feels comfortable during the process.

Along with every grooming, Puppy Cuts offers their signature gentle approach and often uses two groomers to work as a team to ensure proper handling of all animals.

As a special for new customers, Puppy Cuts Pet Spa is offering a $10 discount on your puppy’s (under six months old) first grooming service.
