Jess

Owner / Director

Jess’ obsession with all things doggo was born from her parents’ cruel refusal of allowing her to ever own one. As a more rational adult, Jess has successfully managed to make a living out of being surrounded all day by pups, and as she always suspected, has found her true calling.

She has since forgiven her parents.

Matt

Owner / Head Groomer

A simple love of dogs saw Matt enrolling and completing a grooming course in Melbourne as a means of entry into the industry, never dreaming it would translate into opening his own home based grooming business and eventually into what BB’s is today, a place where all dogs are welcome and treated like family.

Lauren

Dog Trainer

Lauren has been an animal lover all her life. From fish to parrots, you name it, Lauren loves it and dogs are certainly no exception.

She adores dogs in particular, because of their unique ability to love unconditionally and relate to people on a multitude of levels, in a way that many fellow humans cannot. However, Lauren’s love for dog training specifically began in 2006 when her family decided to raise and train their first guide dog puppy. Since then Lauren has helped to train 7 guide dog pups and began running puppy school classes in 2014, assisting in the training of well over 1000 dogs of all breeds and sizes.

Lauren’s true passion is to help people develop a stronger and deeper connection with their dogs, which is based on love and trust. It is for this reason that the dog’s well-being and welfare is at the core of Lauren’s work, teaching dogs from the inside out while teaching owners how to do the same. One of the true joys of working with owners and their beloved companions is watching both dog and owner learn and grow together and seeing all the hard work pay off as they travel the road of life.

Maddi

Bather / Grooming Assistant

Hi, I’m Maddi, working with animals has always been a dream of mine, especially with dogs as I have two of my own. Working at BB’s Grooming & Doggy Daycare I have found a much greater love for our little furry friends. I am currently assisting with Jess and Matt in the salon, and I must say I have developed a much stronger understanding in how a dog behaves, which makes my job easier and your dog becomes relaxed. My favorite part about working with your furry family members is the number of cuddles and licks I get after they have had a makeover!

Kelly

Dog Trainer

Kelly’s love for animals started at a young age when she saw dolphins doing tricks at Seaworld. Ever since then, she has been fascinated with animal behavior and in particular dog behavior and training. Kelly has been heavily influenced by the work of Bob Bailey using operant and classical conditioning in dog training and has completed two years of online training with Susan Garrett. She owns a two-year-old Groodle named Alfie and hopes to train him as a therapy dog in the future. They love learning new tricks together and cannot wait to meet you all during your training sessions.

Grace

Daycare Assistant

Grace has grown up around not only dogs but many animals. She has the utmost respect and appreciation for all dogs and the role they play, not only in her own life but the life of every other family lucky enough to own one. She loves spending time with her own dogs at home and is so grateful to be able to spend her days at work surrounded by dogs and endless cuddles! In grade one, she declared that one day she would be a vet. Today, Grace is currently studying at University on the pathway to becoming a Veterinarian and is honored to be able to learn and use her knowledge in such a wonderful workplace.

Isabella

6 months ago, I got my first puppy Luna. We got her during the second COVID-19 quarantine and felt that it was important for her to meet other dogs and socialize. Through Facebook we discovered BB's Doggy Daycare, which quickly became her favourite place with amazing staff and facilities. I recently joined the staff at BB’s, and I couldn't have asked for a better first job. I love getting to know all the dogs that come to daycare.

Abigail

Abigail has always had a love and passion for animals and how they need to be cared for. Her love grew when she got her first fur-child Oli who is a beautiful Kelpie with lots of energy! She has recently completed her Certificate 3 in Animal Studies and will continue on to obtain her Certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing.

Working at BB’s has given her a great insight with working with all types of dog breeds and the different ways we need to accommodate to each and every one of our furry friends to keep them at optimum health and happiness!

Gemma

Gemma has always had a love for animals and especially doggos. Having spent years dog walking and pet sitting she jumped on the chance to become part of the BB’s team and loves it! Now enrolled into animal studies and working as a groomer in training Gemma is happily expanding her knowledge in all things pup related.

Andrew

Andrew has always been obsessed with all things related to dogs. He pestered his parents to have a dog from the time he could argue his case. Andrews first dog was a Jack Russel that he wanted to call Windscreen Wiper because his tail went so fast back and forth but he had to settle for Jack instead. At the moment Andrew has a Golden Shepherd (Golden retriever x German Shepherd) named Bear who absolutely adores Andrew. While he would ideally have several dogs, this is impractical at the moment, so he really enjoys playing with all the dogs at BBs! Andrew sees himself as very lucky to be surrounded by such a variety of doggy personalities and having lots of fun with big and small dogs, puppies as well as the mature dogs.

Seb

Seb has grown up around dogs his entire life. He takes great interest in observing social behavior in dogs and cannot wait to arrive at work each day to meet the pups he'll be taking care of. He knows that dogs are our best friends and closest companions and gives them all the love and affection they deserve. From Great Danes to Cavoodles, Seb works his hardest to look after every dog in what he's sure is nothing short of the finest doggy daycare and groomers in Geelong.

Tamara

Tamara is the type of person you meet in public who becomes super excited like a kid when she sees a dog and will ask to have a pat! Especially the type of dogs people tend to be afraid of or find intimidating. For Tamara, the bigger and scarier it may look, the better! She'll quickly make each dog feel special, adored, and at ease and greatly looks forward to her dog fix when coming into daycare each week!

Ruby

Ruby has been surrounded by animals her whole life, growing up with them since the day she was born. Her parents always allowed her to have the freedom of getting new pets having owned chickens, cats, dogs, fish, mice, rats, a stick insect, hermit crabs and birds. She loves spending time with her pup at home who always keeps her busy and entertained. Ruby loves coming into work as she gets to spend her time surrounded with all kinds of dogs and has the opportunity to learn about each dog’s personality and behaviors.
Her interest in animals has grown since she was a child and now has found a real love and passion for them. Ruby is currently on the pathway to becoming Veterinary Nurse as she undertakes her Cert II in Animals studies alongside completing secondary school. Ruby is grateful to be working in a role where she can exhibit and develop skills learned in her coursework.

Danielle

Working with animals, especially with dogs has been a dream of Danielle’s since she was a little girl! Since working at BB’s she has learnt so much more about dog behavior and how they interact with one another which she finds really interesting. Her favorite part of working at BB’s is getting to see all the different breeds that come in and cuddling them all of course, especially when we have puppies in that’s always a great added bonus! Also giving them treats when they have been good! Danielle has a fur baby of her own and she absolutely adores him, so when she comes to work, she is extremely happy to be able to spend the day with other dogs too!
