Healthy Paws is located in Norfolk, NE and was established in October of 2006 by Jessica Goeden. After working in Veterinary clinics as a veterinary technician she wanted a change of pace. So she researched several franchise ideas and decided to open her own store.
In the beginning Healthy Paws was just pet supply and cat boarding. As time went on she realized that there was a demand for dog and cat grooming. So Bridget Lambrecht left Companion Animal vet clinic where she worked as a veterinary technician and joined Jessica at Healthy Paws to be a groomer.
At first we started off with just a handful of grooming clients, now we have over a thousand, plus our customers who purchase food and supply regularly. We all have pets, so we know what having a pet means to a family. We treat every four legged friend who walks into our store like one of our own. We have moved from a cozy store on Benjamin to a spacious space on the corner of 3rd street and Norfolk Ave.

"AWESOME customer service and environment! I was very impressed with how professional the staff was and willing to help with our dog. Definitely will be going back!" Megan Marie Leicy
"Healthy Paws is a Godsend. Judy Wilson introduced me to them when Casey was a little pup. I took her several times for baths just to get her used to them, usually getting drenched but a bonding experience. I brush her teeth, groom her, bathe her, but am too intimidated to cut her nails. She doesn't like it but tolerates it. Today she refused to allow it..She didn't like the other staff messing with her paws. We went out to the Vets home to visit and on the way home I started thinking I should not let her have her way so called to see if Jessie was back, she was and Casey got her nails done. ONERY girl. Did I mention a bit of a prima dona?" Gail Consoli
"By far the best around, from here to Lincoln, you won't go wrong. Reasonably priced, always come out looking amazing & the fresh smell lasts a long time! Very personable & willing to do what you ask for when grooming." Brooke Sherbeck
"Love this place! Most groomers grumble about goldendoodles and dogparents that want a longer cut, no problems here they do what the customer wants! Great groomer and the best part is, she helps you with tips on how to keep your dog looking great." Gretchen Forsell
