Hello

I discovered the grooming world by accident after attending the University of Auckland, travelling the world and trying to figure out what I wanted to do in life. I am a farm girl, brought up with all sorts of animals and of course dogs, German Shepherds, Dachshunds, Pyrenean Mountain Dogs and many rescue mixes. I am currently a proud Mama to two Scottish Terriers, Quinn & Macintosh.

Through lots of hard work, I have been fortunate to have been able to follow my passion for dogs and create The Grooming Lounge & Daycare. My goal was to create a transparent and safe facility to care for all dogs who pass through our care. I have a strong interest in skin and coat health and will gladly accept any size and breed in our salon.

Hope to see you soon!
