Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“My old girl is a bit high maintenance and super nervous about being separated from us. We had our first grooming experience today at Pawsh, and it was amazing! They were caring and patient, and it’s obvious that they love the animals. We will definitely be back!” – Jenni L.

Not Your Average Pet Groomer

Allyson Frisch, Groomer and the owner of Pawsh Pet Parlor, generously gave us a few minutes of her time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Pawsh Pet Parlor apart from the many other pet groomers in Tennessee. Here’s Allyson’s response:

“I’ve worked at other places and have seen how they run their businesses. We are not always the fastest; we don’t rush through, and we take what we know we can handle. Also, we are very aware of what the dog’s needs are. Older dogs need more time. We go at the pace they need to go at.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Pawsh Pet Parlor and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Allyson had to say:

“We’re dedicated to making your pet’s experience an enjoyable one. Grooming is a lifelong process that needs to be handled with a caring touch. They are not just a pet; they are a member of your family.”

Building Success by Providing Great Service and Building Relationships

When we asked Allyson about Pawsh Pet Parlor’s secret to such a strong online reputation, she said:

“We don’t really ask for people to leave reviews. We start with great service in person, and we have wonderful clients that come all of the time. We build relationships with the client and the dog, and make it low-stress!”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation any business owner would envy, Pawsh Pet Parlor has spread the word about who they are and what they do through customer referrals, which says something about the kind of service they offer.

Clearly, Allyson knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s her expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Build customer relationships first, and then, the rest falls into place. It is about doing the right thing by the customer and having great customer service.”


Congratulations to the team at Pawsh Pet Parlor for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Allyson, for taking the time to speak with us!
