Nestled at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, The Pawlor is a state of the art grooming salon, built, owned and operated by West Coast Grooming Academy. The Pawlor serves as our main campus, providing students with a state-of-the-art learning facility with top of the line grooming equipment and a design built to make life easier for groomers and pets alike.

At the Pawlor, our customers are treated to a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere, with special features such as aromatherapy, calming pet pheromones and soothing music to help each pet remain as stress-free as possible throughout their stay with us. As a fully functioning salon, students are able to see what a typical day working as a groomer will be like and experience interacting with customers and getting hands-on experience grooming a wide variety of pet breeds and personalities.

The Pawlor is also proud to serve not just dogs, but cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds and reptiles too!
