With my love for dogs I decided I wanted to work with them. With a referral from a friend I was introduced to Tammy. From my first phone call with Tammy, I instantly felt comfortable and knew I was dealing with a true professional in the field.
After meeting her at her own salon, she showed me what basic dog grooming life was like. She was straight to the point, but she had my best interests at heart, not her own and that's what allowed me to make the decision that she was the person to train me.
I spent the next couple of weeks in her salon grooming dogs and she had me hands on from the first minute. She got as many different breeds of dogs in to enhance my knowledge of the breed cuts as best she could. Her clients loved her and had respect for her and her grooming. She certainly knows how to groom and handle a dog. During my time training I learnt many different skills in the field, not only about grooming but about the business itself and this in turn has helped me to build my own successful dog grooming business.
What I liked the best about Tammy was her ongoing support, where I could ring her with any questions even after my initial training. She was happy to help me and always encouraged me because she genuinely wanted me to succeed. I highly recommend Tammy as a dog groomer and also a dog grooming trainer.

I couldn’t thank Tammy enough for the time and effort she spent helping me learn the skills and techniques to become a dog groomer. She not only shared her valued knowledge, but she supported and encouraged me throughout the whole process.
The friendly and welcoming environment was perfect for my training and I am grateful she was able to tailor the training to focus on my weaknesses. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Tammy’s mentoring, it has helped grow my confidence which I can’t thank her enough.
Tammy is very passionate and dedicated and it shows within her work with every dog beautifully groomed with exceptional attention to detail.
I would highly recommend any of Tammy’s services for both dog grooming and training.

I had the pleasure of working under Tammy Gold as I completed my certificate three in Animal Care. I was working at her dog grooming salon for over a year and continued to do so after completion of my certificate as Tammy was a kind, fair and professional boss. With Tammy’s knowledge, skills and professionalism I was able to master dog grooming in no time. Her endless knowledge and encouragement created the perfect environment to gain all the skills I wanted. The business was very steady however nothing ever felt overwhelming with Tammy’s efficiency and kind nature. I cannot recommend her training enough and will always hold fond memories of the whole experience. For all reasons I wrote above, I give Tammy Gold the highest recommendation as an educator in dog grooming, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

I worked and was trained by Tammy for 2 years while studying for my Companion Animal degree. I can without a doubt say that Tammy was an absolute joy to work for and an amazing trainer who was fantastic with all the dogs, customers, and employees. Tammy has such a high level of skill and compassion when working with any breed and so effortlessly and happily shared those skills with those who worked for her. I gained so much knowledge that no degree would be able to teach me, and I love that I can continue to groom my puppies with that same confidence and skill that Tammy gave to me. She is a such a dedicated worker who always strives for and achieves the best for all her customers. I loved working for Tammy and miss hanging out with her and all the dogs! I highly recommend her for any dog grooming services that you need!

I worked for Tammy as a groomer for 2 years in her salon on the Gold Coast. She was very professional and courteous to all the clients and the animals were always treated with kindness. Tammy’s grooming skills are impeccable, and no animal ever left the salon with any imperfections. The salon was kept clean, neat and tidy at all times. I was surprised at how quickly business grew. I very much enjoyed working for Tammy and would do it again in a heartbeat.

110% recommend! My little chi baby is prone to having seizures and unfortunately had one before the groom had started, but Tammy called me up straight away to let me know so I could come sit with her and keep her calm. Throughout the whole groom Tammy was calm and patient with my little girl! I am so so impressed with how it all went! And the de-shed on my pug is awesome, he looks so much better now! And they both smell absolutely AMAZING!! Thank you so much, we will definitely be back ❤️
