Working with us

Located in Mackay QLD, Pamper Paws is a boutique grooming salon & doggy daycare facility, providing gold class pet services. We strive on quality over quantity, and our clients expect top quality services and professionalism throughout the entire service.

In the salon we use high quality, Australian made products, free of soap, sulfurs, parabens and all nasties.

Pamper Paws strongly believes in humanity over vanity, and will not compromise any animals’ health, safety or wellbeing to meet clients expectations or provide a certain hair style.

We offer continual on-the-job training and support and encourage staff in their venture for personal and professional growth.

Working with animals involves a lot of manual labour, cleaning and going home wet and covered in dog hair and slobber, but also very rewarding and offers plenty of opportunity for growth and learning.  If this sounds like you, we look forward to receiving your application.
