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

Guest 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

Training Assistant

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.
