Our Amazing Staff

ImogenPet Sylist
Love animals but particularly dog obsessed, especially with my dog bean. I enjoy road trips with my dog and boyfriend, visiting and exploring new or favourite places. I enjoy photographing landscapes and taking pictures of bean dog.
SamGrooming Assistant
I love a good cuppa tea, reading, lounging about and eating lots of pizza. I might look 12 but to the people who know me I am a nanna! My dog Jai loves snuggling, growling at possums and he gets an 11/10 comforting score.

Great friendly service. Our mini Schnauzer looked fantastic after his trim and we got exactly what we asked for.

I can't recommend Scooby & Friends highly enough. We have 3 gorgeous greyhounds who adore Sarah and love their trips to the salon.One of our girls is particularly shy and cautious of humans and Sarah has worked very hard in building up her confidence. It's amazing to see how far she's come, she will even jump on the grooming table herself, it must be love! The girls come home looking and smelling beautiful with a cute ribbon to more

What an amazing talent Sarah has! My dog loves his visits and always comes back happy. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!

Wouldn't use any other groomer for my two greyhounds! Sarah is gentle and kind, she understands my dogs' needs and has a fantastic personality.
