Dear Joy Readers
Now for all of you that have relocated and you have sorted your hairdresser now it is time for your 4 legged loved ones to be pampered.
First up we have Dog Groomers.
Jo here. We have a little black bichon crossed with a toy poodle who is a little ball of fluff and I have no clue about how to trim her ! so I call in the professionals. For quite a little while we used Pampered Pets at Taringa which were great but as life got busier I was finding it harder and harder to get there. Then a friend recommended Rosie Pets who come to you.
Rosie Pets is a mobile dog grooming service who also provide dog washing (all dogs welccome), dog walking and pet sitting. Jane owns the business and was just covering the western suburbs when we first started using Rosie pets but as her business has grown she has now branched out to the eastern suburbs as well.
The great thing about Rosie pets is they come to you. You don’t even have to be home, as long as they have access to a power point and water. I just send Jane a text and she will arrange an appointment time for us. We have had the same person groom our dog which is fabulous as Molly knows her and we always know what we are getting. Jane will then just e-mail out an invoice to you. Danya who grooms Molly truly loves animals and is so gentle and lovely with her.
So of this sounds like the type of service you need for your little or big pooch you can call Jane on 1300 9 ROSIE or click on this link to arrange a booking.
Blue Wheelers are another mobile dog groomer who will come to you and cover a wide area around Brisbane, you’ll recognise their blue dog trailer
Hello lovelies Sarah here, and we have our little Daisy who is a Westie. We have been to a couple of great groomers
The 1st is Tailored Paws in Kenmore, these guys are great they are usually pretty busy and so you usually need to book a week in advance especially around holiday times. Its really important with dogs to keep their hair shorter during these hot months as 1 thing its really hot 😉 but also ticks love to hide inside their long hair . Check out our blog ( click the link ) on ticks as these little things really can kill our pups so you really do need to be vigilante. These guys also can offer dog sitting if you are going away for a while in their own home. But they only have very limited space so you will need to check this out well in advance
If I’m not being too organised ( which is more often than I like to admit 🙂 ) then we go to the lovely Paws Awhile in Toowoong which we love!! its just a wee bit further for me to drive
You can contact them on
8 Bent street
I can usually get an appointment that same week which is great! if poor Daisy is at the point where she actually can’t see a thing !
If you need a place to leave your pooch then check out the Pet Chalet in Brookfield, these guys are great and will even come and pick up your pooch if need be ( they do charge a fee for this though ). But they will make sure you’re dog is well cared for while you are away. And come very highly recommended 🙂
So happy pampering for you pooches
