M.Y. Dog Grooming Salon

M.Y. Dog Grooming Salon pampers man’s best friend in a relaxed, stress free environment with premium products and styling requirements for breed specific coats.

Melanie Young is the owner and groomer at M.Y. Dog Grooming Salon. She says she was raised into a very dog friendly household where she was surrounded by the breeding and training of several dog breeds from a very young age.

“I have years of dog knowledge as well as two years practical clinical experience where worked while gaining my Certificate ll in Animal Studies.

“I also have practical  experience in a local grooming salon, specialising in breed specific and pet grooms.”

“We recognise how important your furry friends are and pride ourselves on making the safety and welfare of every pooch who walks through our door top priority.”

They also offer dog hair dye and nail painting, using all natural products that are animal safe. For those outgoing pooches who love attention it helps stand them out in the crowd and get way move public attention!

M.Y. Dog Grooming Salon encourages regular grooming as it is an essential component of overall dog heath and hygiene. And they’re convenient, with the salon being in one of the main streets of Tamworth and easily accessible by people on their way to work.

“I have a personal experience of how much your pets mean to you and I will do everything in my power to give them a safe, nurturing environment, when they arrive here. With my focus being on a positive experience and a quality groom.”

Wingspan Therapies

Wingspan Therapies are a private mental health practice, offering mental health recovery, counselling, as well as acupuncture & remedial massage. 

Wingspan is a holistic non-clinical practice, with a focus on mental and emotional health for each of our values clients. The practice is operated by Pagan Kelly and Fiona Richards, who have worked in mental health for many years.

“Cost is important to us – our rates are considerably lower than the average. We want to be affordable, so that our clients can have regular therapy rather than only when they can barely afford it.”

“If we can cover our overheads and pop food on our tables a few times per week, that will do.” 

Throughout October, we’ll run stories highlighting the great local businesses we have right here in our communities. This is a free service – the businesses highlighted have not paid for this story.
