About Groom-Me by Lisa-Marie
Who is Lisa-Marie
30 years ago I was born in the small German town of Schwaebisch Hall.
With a desire to see the world and all it has to offer, eights years ago I arrived in Australia with an adventurous spirit and not much else. I fell in love with Melbourne and the people here. Some years later due to a love for dogs Groom-Me came into a humble existence.
During my time here I have been lucky enough to meet amazing people and pooches, some of who have become my good friends and loved ones.
While hard to believe now, at a younger age I wasn’t a big fan of dogs.
My love for dogs only began once I was living in Australia, a neighbour needed a dog sitter and I volunteered. The unconditional love between us that developed as a result of caring for Chi Chi the Maltese was unlike anything I had felt before.
Shortly after caring for Chi Chi I decided to look for a dog that I could call my own. To commit to being a parent of Kilda (also a Maltese) was the scariest and best decision I ever made, despite having brought her from a pet shop (these days I would choose to adopt a rescued dog).
Kilda stole my heart immediately and was a driving force behind the creation of Groom-Me.
Nothing was to good for Kilda, she was regularly groomed and had more toys/collars/leads than she could dream of, but I couldn’t find a groomers that shared my love for my Kilda.
I imagined a dog grooming salon that would be a place that dogs could go to receive the same love and affection that they are accustomed to recieving at home. A stress-free, loving, caring and especially cage-free environment. A place where the groomer loves your dog the same as you do.
‘Groom-me by Lisa-Marie’ was born in April 2013.
I love my furry children more than anything and to be able to share my passion with others is something I am very proud of.
We can’t wait to show you our beautiful salon and make your dog look and feel its best.
