Our Story

The Dog Dazzlers Burwood

From The Home Laundry, To A Purpose Built Facility

The Dog Dazzler story began when we started Sam’s Dog Grooming from our home laundry, after Sam trained with award winning dog groomer Melanie Newman.

After seeing what Sam was achieving, and how much she loved doing dog washes and dog grooming, her sister Jennifer decided it would be a great career for her as well, and went on to train under Melanie Newman herself. From there, Jen went on to hone her skills at one of Melbourne’s well renowned dog spas in South Yarra.

5 years later, the clientele grew and the humble laundry wasn’t very practical so we decided it was time to relocate and rebrand. We changed our name from Sam’s Dog Grooming to The Dog Dazzlers, and for over 2 years we operated out of one of Australia’s leading pet shops where we became their leading dog groomers across Australia and New Zealand.

After 2.5 years, it was time to relocate again and this time we wanted to make sure we had full control over everything from floor to ceiling. In 2017, we moved to our purpose built facility in Burwood, Victoria offering one of the country’s most unique dog grooming and dog daycare experiences, right here in Melbourne!
