Founder & Behaviourist

Marrying her love for business and passion for animals, Laura founded Urban Paws as a full service concept. Realising that companion animals have a deep well of emotions and needs that often go unaddressed in our hustle and bustle,, Urbans Paws was founded on the basis of empathy, compassion and authenticity.

 

Laura now derives the most fulfillment from rehabilitating dogs with behavioural issues.

LYNN

Small Mammal Groomer

Having had all sorts of pets, large and small, her entire life, Lynn ensures everyone is well-taken care of in her ‘hood – be they your furkids, our furkids, her minions, the stray cats roaming about or your kids roaming about (ok, not quite.)

 

She specializes in grooming for small animals and does an especially good job with the most timid of pets. 

JOANNE

Senior Groomer

When she’s not making your furkid look like a literal fluff ball with her silver scissors, Joanne spends her days making friends with the dogs at shelters and choosing the freshest greens to pamper her oversized guinea pig, Kody, with. Joanne specializes in Asian Fusion cuts.

She strongly believes that regular grooming is paramount to the physical welfare of a pet and hopes to spread basic grooming knowledge through formalized classes.  

GRACIA

Manager

After completing her Bachelor of Science and a stint in a veterinary clinic, coupled with her extensive volunteering experience, Gracia decided her true passion lay with being a part of and making a difference in the everyday of companion animals. This commitment was intensified after her Pomeranian, Cotton, came into her life. 

Gracia is a strong advocate of responsible pet ownership and she ensures that this belief is reflected throughout her management of the Telok Kurau outlet and in her interactions with corporate partners, her team and  customers.

Guest Relations

Undeniably the most recognizable face of Urban Paws, his stoic affection has become the stuff of legends. Einstein's strong work ethic compels him to not only pose luxuriantly with you for photo shoots but also to give paw massages if he thinks you are a high roller (read: laden with treats).
