Charmaine grew up in a pet loving family in the Hornsby area before moving to the Central Coast of NSW, Australia. Charmaine had the family's dogs, cats, goldfish, hermit crabs, axolotls to contend with as well as bringing stray dogs home from school, rescuing blue tongue lizards and nursing injured birds back to health.
Always wanting to work in the pet industry she took on an apprenticeship position to learn the art of professional dog and cat grooming. On completion she embarked on the Kennel and Cattery Operations Course later being awarded the highest pass by the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PUAC).
Chardee her cat was the first pet that was solely her own. Chardee would ride in the car to the grooming salon and sit amongst the dogs. He thought he was a dog. A people cat with attitude. Sadly passed away after 10 good years 23.12.01.
Colleda was saved from being hit by a train at Gosford Railway tracks, upon finding her owners they then gave her to us. They weren't able to dedicate time to the special needs of a Siberian Husky. Colleda has a special place in our hearts even through some of the trying times we've had with her in her first few years.
Since starting her own salon Charmaine has completed many courses which enables her to apply new pet friendly techniques and professional flair in the comfort of her well designed premises.
