One thing Amanda has learnt over 25 years in business is to not take things personally. “You’ve got to accept you’re going to make mistakes,” she explains. “The grooming industry didn’t exist when I started giving my mum’s fluffy dogs haircuts years ago. Dashing Designer Dogs began with me, and today we (Amanda and her five female staff) have over 50 years of experience collectively.”
Recently moving into the business precinct in Mornington and offering a full grooming service for all breeds of dogs, Amanda and her team understand how dog coats work and what they need to be maintained. She continues. “We are constantly updating our skills and looking for new ways to grow the business. We have a new totally enclosed grassed area for our four-legged clients and doggie day care is in the works too. Our new premises is huge. ”
Starting out working with a lady groomer in the poodle scene who taught her how to groom, Amanda has worked hard to be where she is today, but there’s always more to learn. She concludes. “It was a great way to begin my career. Dashing Designer Dogs is built on experience and delivering a premium personalised boutique dog grooming service. We’ve been established for over 20 years and are looking forward to the future.”
Now that’s room to groom.
