With the salon having a stylish and unique décor, Sam offers the ultimate pamper experience for one’s furry friends.

Sam has an obvious affinity with dogs and other animals, as she not only works with dogs but also spends her spare time at home with her own dogs, horse and sheep.

Originally from Manchester, Sam was exposed to dog grooming from a young age through showing standard poodles.

Sam went on to own her own dog grooming business in the United Kingdom (UK), before moving to Australia about 20 years ago.

As a registered nurse who has specialised in palliative care, Sam lived and worked as a nurse in Perth for 12 years before moving to Queensland, living in Mossman and Mount Isa before settling at the Somerset-based Redbank Creek.

Sam said the opening of Vanity Fur Grooming Co was her dream to return to her dog grooming roots.

The salon offers a peaceful and relaxed environment for the dogs with one-to-one grooming, while Sam offers a complete range of services for all sizes and breeds of dogs.

“It is important to make the grooming experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible, taking time giving lots of tender-loving-care,” she said.

Another feature of Sam’s business is a pet deli, which she launched a couple of months after the opening of the salon.

Located at the front of the salon, the deli contains a wide range of natural Australian premium dog treats.

Sam has gained clients from all around the Somerset region, as well as the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Brisbane.

Sam can be contacted on 0406 291 494 for appointments.

The salon is based at Shop 5a Colonial Plaza, 137 Ipswich Street, Esk.
