Windarra Pet Spa has been open since July 2020, operating from a luxurious, custom built salon, based in the beautiful suburb of Bunya. Previously we were a very successful mobile based business, (Paws on Wheels Mobile Grooming) covering the northside 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. The business is owned and operated by Mary, who trained with the Pet Stylist Academy on the Gold Coast in 2012, obtaining a Certificate III in Companion Animal Services (Dog Grooming). Mary owns 2 Portuguese Water Dogs (Alfie and Mea) from ABWAJ Kennels in Jimboomba.
I have completed a Certificate III in Companion Animal Services (Dog Grooming) and am currently working towards my Certificate IV in Pet Styling.
I have one outstanding practical assessment to complete my Certificate IV in Pet Styling, which is currently the highest nationally recognised qualification for groomers that is available in Australia. I have passed the 2 practical assessments for terriers and one for Poodle and all of the written assessments.
I am a member of International Professional Groomers (IPG) and have completed their Track 1 qualification, I am a Certified Salon Professional and Certified Professional Groomer with IPG and am now working towards Track 2 (Advanced Professional Groomer).
I have commenced training with the National Cat Groomers Institute (NCGI) in order to work towards my Nationally Certified Feline Master Groomer qualification.
I am continually studying and updating my skills, knowledge and equipment to provide the best possible service for the clients and animals in my care. I also attend frequent workshops and training sessions for groomers.
