Fixing scruffs on the muttz


Horsham dog-groomer Neve Lawson from Scruff Muttz has returned to a busy schedule in response to strong pooch-pampering demand after lockdown.

Miss Lawson’s appointmen­t book is filling rapidly with inquiries from a growing clientele of canine enthusiast­s in desperate need of trims and clean-ups for their loved but needy companions.

She said she had been concerned about her clients’ dog needs while unable to operate under COVID-19 restrictio­ns but was now back in full swing.

“I know full well what it means for someone to have a dog in desperate need for grooming, especially when it comes to pets requiring regular attention,” she said.

“That’s why I’ve been ready to get back into the Scruff Muttz caravan as soon as possible. Dogs have varying care needs and maintenanc­e can worry their owners. That’s where I come in.”

Miss Lawson has busily settled into the doggroomin­g trade, an idea she pursued after studying veterinary nursing in Geelong.

She works out of a caravan she has transforme­d and fitted out into modern grooming salon.

She said dealing with tangles, prickles, knots, mats and a variety of dog coats, sizes and personalit­ies remained a passion.

“I’m very particular because I’m working with four-legged family members and all are special. It’s great,” she said.

Miss Lawson usually grooms dogs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

People can make an appointmen­t for their dog with Miss Lawson by texting 0474 093 886 or via her Scruff Muttz Facebook page.
