Hi and welcome to Paradise Poodles, home of the most most stunning, intellegent and healthiest poodles around. My name is Joan Gatrell. I'm the proud mother of three wonderful children and two amazing grandchildren.
As far back as I can remember I've had a calling for dogs. I was 18 years old when I started grooming. My first haircut was a show trim on a miniture poodle named Charlie. I was hooked! I bought my first poodle when I was 25.
Me and my poodles lived in Paradise for 15 great years! Unfortunately in 2018 the horrific Camp Fire caused me and my poodles to relocate to a small community called Olivehurst just 30 minutes outside of Sacramento CA.
I also run a dog grooming spa from home called Muddy Paws. My poodles are my best friends and their needs come before mine most of the time.
