ABOUT WINDARRA PET SPA
Windarra Pet Spa is a professional pet grooming business, based on Brisbane's north side.
Previously we were a very successful mobile based business, (Paws on Wheels Mobile Grooming) covering the North side of Brisbane, from 2012 - 2020.
In early 2020, we decided to operate the business from a fixed address, in order to spend less time driving and more time grooming.
Windarra Pet Spa has been open since July 2020, operating from a luxurious, custom built boutique style salon, with brand new top of the range, well maintained equipment. We are located in a quiet neighbourhood in the beautiful suburb of Bunya, parking is directly outside the salon.

We specialise in a wide range of grooming services, for small to medium sized dogs and cats.
Grooming services for dogs includes bathing, drying, nail clips, ear care, breed standard grooms, teddy trims, de-shedding treatments, hand stripping on wire coated breeds and pet styled trims, using only top of the range, high quality grooming products.

We encourage regular grooming appointments, which helps to maintain your pets hygiene needs and prevents overgrown, uncomfortable nails, knots, matted coats and ear and skin infections in some cases. This makes grooming a pleasant experience for your pet that they learn to enjoy as part of their routine. Owners then always have a clean and well maintained pet to share their home. Regular grooming appointments are necessary if you like to keep your dog's coat long and want to have options regarding the kind of style you would like your dog to have.
We do not ‘shave’ dogs, unless unavoidable, due to matting etc. We prefer to style your dog in a way that emphasises your dog’s best features, whilst being easy to maintain for the owner depending on the dog’s lifestyle and time available for grooming. We offer free grooming advice to all our clients to enable them to keep their dog looking it's best until the next appointment.
