Our Team



Hannah is our Salon Manager and Senior Groomer.  Coming to us from Northern England, Hannah commenced her grooming career in 2010  and moved into a Management role within 5 years. She has also completed studies in Animal Management and worked as a stable hand. Hannah is passionate about animals and has taken part in voluntary work raising money for the dog charity SHAK ‘dogs on death row’.

Hannah is a gentle groomer with a kind and calm nature that our dogs really respond to. One of Hannah’s talents includes her beautiful scissor work so don’t be afraid to try something  a little different and put her to the test! 


Brydie is our bather and has always had a love for animals since she was a small girl. They are her number one passion. Brydie studied Certificate II in Animal Studies at Melbourne Polytechnic and volunteered at Guide Dogs Victoria in Kew. Her greatest wish is to always work with animals. She loves to spoil them and shower them in love and her genuinely caring nature has such a wonderful calming affect so she is fantastic with dogs that can get a bit stressed during the bathing and drying process. 


Pia is our junior groomer who started off with us as a bather and was so passionate about becoming a dog groomer we began training her within 6 weeks. She is receiving the best training from our Senior Groomer Hannah and from Lisa Key who also teaches at Dog Diversity, one of the best grooming schools in the country. She loves to care for animals and aims to become a Veterinarian. She will be undertaking a bachelors degree in animal science and plans to volunteer at Guide Dogs Victoria.
She loves being involved with the animals on her farm, especially her two twin miniature goats Jack and Jill. She loves to spend time with dogs of all ages, including her Jack Russell Buddy.

Julia is our casual bather and has fit right into our animal loving team! She has completed  a Cert II in Animal Studies at Box Hill TAFE and has volunteered with the RSPCA and Second Chance Animal Rescue shelter.  She has grown up with all kinds of animals and is a pet sitter and dog walker in her spare time. Julia has a passion for animal welfare and all animals in general!


Nicole is the owner of Puppy Love. Her passion for animals has always been a defining characteristic, and she has successfully fostered a number of dogs with her current dog Bosley being her first ‘failed foster’.

Nicole has a soft spot for our lovely oldies. She also loves all things nature, including a big love of Scuba Diving and travel, and recently traveled to Tonga to swim with hump back whales!

Puppy Love was born from a desire to have a small local business that offered an alternative to the large cage filled assembly line approach that the large franchise chains use. Dollars first, and the dogs last. It was, and remains, of upmost importance to Nicole that the dogs health and happiness come first. She is passionate about caring for and speaking for the needs of all animals who can’t protect or speak for themselves.
