Who We Are
Windarra Pet Spa is a professional pet grooming business, based on Brisbane's north side.
We specialise in a wide range of grooming services, for small to medium sized dogs and cats.
We are a small family business, owned and operated by Mary, who has over10 years grooming experience.
Previously we were a very successful mobile based business, (Paws on Wheels Mobile Grooming) covering the North side of Brisbane, from 2012 - 2020.
In 2020 construction was completed on our salon, we moved in and permanently closed the mobile business. We now operate exclusively from the salon, located in the beautiful suburb of Bunya.
We have a large number of regular clients, many of whom have been with us since the mobile business started in 2012. The majority of clients have their appointments booked through until the end of the year and we have limited spaces for new clients. Please enquire for availability.

What We Do
Grooming services for dogs include bathing, drying, nail clips, ear care, breed standard grooms, teddy trims, de-shedding treatments, hand stripping on wire coated breeds and pet styled trims, colouring and some spa treatments, using only top of the range, high quality grooming products.
Grooming services for cats include nail trims, nail caps, bathing, blow drying, de-shedding treatments and shaving / style clipping options (if appropriate, for compliant cats).
We also stock a range of high quality grooming tools and products, a range of healthy treats and chews and frozen BARF diet in a range of flavours.
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 its best until the next appointment.
