Hi! I’m Jessica Walsh-Blumberg and I am the owner and head groomer of Paws on Main Pet Grooming Salon in beautiful downtown Nyack.
Born and raised in Rockland County, New York, my family history of working along the beautiful Hudson River goes back over five generations. I am continuing this legacy with my pet salon, Paws on Main.
I remember being a little kid, it was the early 90s and my mom would take our Bichon Frise to a dog groomer in Montvale, NJ. I can still remember the fresh and unique smells of the dog cologne and pet shampoos when I walked in there. I was so mesmerized by the whole process.
I remember being in the backseat of the car in the winter, driving down the NYS thruway from our home in Rockland County to go to Times Square and see the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.
In Westchester, we would pass by this big neon red sign for a pet grooming salon and I would be in awe. “Wow. What is that magical place for pets? What do they do there?” I would wonder.
That would go on to be my first place of employment in the pet industry when I turned 18.
At the time, I had no idea this was my calling, I just saw a job ad one day and answered it. It turned out to be at that magical place I wondered about as a child and everything clicked.
Something felt familiar and right about it.
Fast forward- I now own and operate Paws on Main, my fabulous pet salon, opened in 2014.
It’s fun and artsy and unique- everything Nyack is all about.
Over the years I’ve apprenticed and worked hard to become the most skilled dog and cat groomer I can be. I feel I have a kinship with animals that is unique to very few and combined with my talent for grooming I can offer a wonderful experience for you and your pets.
My husband, Jordan, and I run the salon together, along with our two amazing groomers, Ashley & Sharon.
Jordan spends his free time volunteering at our local Orangetown Fire Department. We have children in the school district and we consider ourselves a big part of the community.
