GALLERY: Leanne’s dog cuts and dyes get CQ tongues wagging
FOR Leanne Webb, the greatest advertisement she can give her home business is simply walking her dogs down the street.
The 23-year-old business entrepreneur can be seen strolling the streets of Gracemere with her three multi-coloured pooches, and they certainly have got tongues wagging.
Leanne owns and runs The Pink Pooch dog grooming, and while she still offers basic services, she specialises in the weird and wonderful.
"We do the dyeing of dogs, painting of nails and creative and modern haircuts for dogs," she said.
"People have never had the option here in Rocky, and that's why it's great me being here because it has opened their eyes on what can be done to their dog."
And what exactly can she do?
"I have done stuff like making golden retrievers look like tigers," Leanne said. "I did actually dye a black poodle over Christmas and he was red and green, I have also dyed dogs maroon and blue for the State of Origin."
Those concerned with doggy welfare can rest assured; Leanne said the materials used to dye the stylish pups were completely safe.
"It's a vegan dye; it's plant and vegetable-based and is specially formulated for animals so it is perfectly humane and safe," she said. "And ironically, it's not tested on animals."
Next up for the young business owner is the task of learning how to airbrush her canine clients.
Owners have always gone above and beyond for their furry companions.
