Meet Your Stylists

Hi I’m Dawn Tallo previously Penzarella, the Owner and Lead Stylist for over 20 years at Sandy Paws! I have over 20 years grooming and ownership experience and have spent that time creating your and your pets best salon experience . I truly love what I do and hope to continue on this path for many more years to come. I have 4 children. Evan 18, Sarah 12 and my step kids Bella 16 and Santo 13 all keep me on my toes. My 3 rescue dogs, Amy, 9, a dashound, Bean, 4, a Sato and Mr. Bumbles 13??, a pekingese also fill my life with chaos that I love. I am married and my husband Steve thinks I love dogs more than him….. shhhhh! Owning a shop has been exciting, scary, crazy, exhilirating and terrifying. However, my clients have always been loyal and have kept my doors open now for 20 years. We are so very thankful for all of them.

Welcome to our world
