Hi, my name is Karen, I began my career in the dog grooming industry more than 15 years ago, starting at the bottom learning how to do the basics of dog grooming while working at an established salon for 7 years. It was here I gained a lot of experience and confidence in the Pet Grooming industry.
I then spent approximately 1 year working at a boarding kennel and training facility in the Redlands where I was responsible for all of the grooming in the house and for external customers.
After spending over 8 years developing the skills and knowledge in this industry, I decided it was time to branch out on my own. In June 2008 I started my own business working from my home in Redland Bay. In May 2010, circumstances saw us moving overseas for a period of 3 and a half years.
We have now returned to the Redlands and an opportunity arose for me to once again start my own dog grooming business in a new and exciting location. Over the next three years I have experienced amazing growth which saw the need for me to move into a much larger premises just a few doors away.
The new shop has been specifically designed with your dog’s comfort and needs in mind. With this growth I have now expanded my team to include Amanda who joined me in 2017.
Amanda shares my passion for all animals and enjoys seeing the delight and satisfaction from our customers happy faces. She has become a very valuable part of my team here at Bayside Grooming.
Due to the success of this business and to meet the demand I have once again expanded my team to include Erin and Debbie. This will ensure I continue to provide the high level of professionalism for your four legged loved ones.
