Hello and welcome to Shampooches for Dogs ...

My name is Carol and I'm the owner of Shampooches for Dogs. Some of you may know me from Paws at Play Dog Daycare & Grooming Centre which I ran for 4 years in Wangara before closing the daycare and moving the grooming side of the business into our new premises in Wanneroo in July 2015.

My love of grooming started in the UK back in 1990 when I got my first Bichon Frise puppy, the irreplaceable Kyla, aka 'Sandpa Mischievous Tyke' (and boy did she live up to her registered name!).  One evening whilst attending puppy obedience classes with Kyla I had a chance meeting with a lady who was to become a great friend and mentor of mine. Hilary was a registered Bichon breeder, professional groomer and show judge. She was also a highly respected member of the Bichon Frise Club of Great Britain. Hilary thought that my Kyla was a beautiful Bichon and encouraged me to start showing her.  I spent many months with Hilary learning the art of professional grooming and eventually went out on my own.  I continued to show Kyla which then led me to becoming a registered Bichon Frise breeder for a few years.  Fast forward 25 years and to a new country and here I am today, still loving the art of grooming and spending my days with dogs.

My two Senior Groomers, Bec and Ciara, have both been with me for over 5 years now. They are both amazing groomers and perhaps more importantly, really beautiful ladies who are always kind and gentle to the dogs.  We make a great team!

We pride ourselves in offering a gentle and professional service to all our 4 legged customers. We may not be the fastest because we prefer to build trust with the dogs and offer them a relaxed and positive environment during the grooming process.  For this reason we are a cage free salon and never use cage dryers.  All dogs are blow dried by hand.

We use quality professional grooming products, including the natural range from Petway Australia, Isle of Dogs, Progroom and Nature's Specialties.  You will be thrilled at how beautiful your dog will look and smell after we have used these products.  It doesn't take long to start seeing the difference in the coat and skin once you start using these products regularly. We're able to apply the right product specific for coat and skin types with some excellent results. The Isle of Dog Evening Primrose Oil shampoos have helped many dogs suffering from dry, itchy and flaky skin. We also stock a retail line of these products.

We regularly attend grooming seminars, conferences and workshops in an effort to continually improve and learn new skills and techniques from around the world. We want to offer you and your best friend the very best experience in dog grooming.
