Named after Donna's westie 'Millie' we opened our doors in the summer of 2014 in a small shop in Holbrooks, then in October 2017 we expanded our services & moved to the well known 'Bayton Road Industrial Estate' in Exhall & added a canine swimming pool & dog grooming school to our services. From December 2022 we moved the grooming studio & hydrotherapy centre from Bayton Road Industrial Estate. We are always looking for new opportunities to ensure we can bring our clients multiple services. We are committed to learning & our continued personal development to ensure we offer a high standard of services.

Introducing the

Millie's Paws Team!!!!


Millie's Paws Grooming Studio Coventry was set up by Donna Vaughan in August 2014. Donna is qualified to level 2 City & Guilds, level 3 OCN & level 3 Stonebridge Associated Colleges. Donna also holds OCN pet first aid & ABC nationally accredited certificate in small animal hydrotherapy. Donna has more recently completed Level 3 Awards in Education & Training & Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement, to be able to teach & assess dog grooming students. The name Millie's Paws comes from Donna's West Highland Terrier 'Millie'. Donna originally started as a dog walking & pet sitting service under the Millie's Paws name in 2011 before training as a dog groomer. Donna has also been a qualified cat groomer since 2015.


Cerys has been with us since 2017 & helps with the swimming sessions & is our main bather & dryer. Bathing & drying is a very important job within the grooming process. If this is not done correctly then the brushing & cutting of the hair is not effective. Cerys is a level 2 City and Guilds dog grooming assistant, level 3 ABC hydrotherapist in small animal hydrotherapy & a level 3 teacher in award & education. Cerys is also our teeth cleaning specialist. Cerys also cleans up most of the doggy accidents!! Cerys has a calm personality which is really important when working with animals. Cerys has a Shih Tzu called Jodie who comes to work & keeps Millie company!


Rebecca has been with us since 2016. Rebecca is a mum to 2 little girls & a cavapoo called Teddy & is also Donna's sister. Rebecca works at Millie's Paws part time. Rebecca also helps to take bookings.
