Mildura Weekly – 21/03/14 23 www.milduraphonebook.com.au WOMEN INBUSINESS Moulin Pooch Grooming Lounge owner/operator Carmen Stjepovic has a self-confessed soft spot when it comes to ‘man’s best friend’ – so much so that she has opened a business specifically-catered to the well-being of Mildura dogs. Moulin Pooch Grooming while still a relatively new business (having only been under new management for less than two months), is already developing a loyal following, offering a variety of services to dogs and their owners. Included is regular pamper and grooming services (which also cater for other pets besides dogs), with owners also able to utilise the group’s ‘Doggy Playgroup’ service. Essentially a way to let dogs socialise with one another, Doggy Playgroup also acts as a babysitting service of sorts for those owners who work long hours, or who don’t want to leave their pets at home alone for long periods. A number of extra services are also on offer to customers, including photo sessions. Carmen said the ‘Doggy Playgroup’ in particular had proven extremely popular. “The concept has been a real hit, with pet owners enjoying an opportunity to let their dogs mix with other dogs,” she said. “While the main focus is on dog socialisation, it’s also a great service for those people who work five or six days a week, and want to ensure their dog is getting the appropriate amount of stimulation.” Carmen said her whole working life had surrounded taking care of animals, having previously worked at the Mildura pound. “I used to work full-time at the Mildura Pound for two-and-a -half years, cleaning and walking dogs or doing whatever was needed,” she said. “I still work their once a week to help out, and I have a great relationship with all the rescue groups that work with the Mildura Pound, participating in regular transport runs to Charlton when I can, transporting animals to meet carers from Melbourne who then transport those animals to the city.” Carmen is also a regular supporter of various animal charities, and has recently been dedicating her time to helping a friend raise money for their own dog, Pepper, who needs a vital operation.
