I look after our Brands of Dash DogWash and Blue Wheelers. I was involved in creating these brands and I’m mighty protective of them. I strive on helping our team to always show the brand in a positive light. I help our team by strategically marketing for our future success.
My special super power is that I’m a very positive person and I love taking a ‘but….’ and changing the emphasis to a positive interaction.

Lulu joined the Team in 2014 as our most important Mascot and Sample Tester of our products and… Treats
Lulu has experienced many of the groomers on our team – she will travel wide and far to be groomed by one of our Groomers. She has a favourite but she said she doesn’t lick and tell.
Lulu loves going to the office and doesn’t fully understand why everyone loves her but accepts it as normal.
She is super clever. “I know when my Mum and Dad are going out. It’s when they say “OK”. Sometimes this means “Let’s Go”. Sometimes it means I can ‘tuck in’. Sometimes though, they say OK and nothing happens!
May was managing a financial planning practice when she went looking for something more fun.
May became a Blue Wheelers Mobile Dog Groomer in 2008 so she could have flexibility and control over when she wanted to work and when she wanted to take holidays.
After 9.5 years on the tools as a groomer, May sold her established grooming business in 2017. We loved her so much we refused to let her walk off into the sunset. She embarked on a new role within Dash DogWash as National Operations & Training.
In recent times, she has stepped into the less frenetic role of Team Support for Victoria and Tasmania.
Like Col, May has groomed 1000’s of dogs as a mobile Groomer and continues to do so as she supports our team on the road in Melbourne and Tassie.
Rehanna brings her deep understanding and love of all things canine to the grooming table. As well as owning her own successful Blue Wheelers Wash, Clip and Groom business she now loves helping others to reach their full potential.
Rehanna started as a Groomer with Blue Wheelers in 2013 with no experience in dog grooming nor running a business. She fell in love with the business right away and found she was very good at it.
In 2018 Rehanna became our support person for the SA team and the rest is history! She is much loved by the team and her experience and positivity is infectious.
Rehanna has groomed 14,000 dogs and is counting more as the days go by.
She owns Hamish the Westie AKA Sausage, Mista the Barista or Trouble. Then there’s Jockee the mixed breed also known as Mr Jockee and together they are the Doubles. The Doubles know that Rehanna hates washing dishes and can be found giving her support when needed.
Since 2010 Mark and his wife, Kristie have been part of our Blue Wheelers Wash, Clip and Groom family. Mark balances his well-established business with a busy family. Together they enjoy helping the WA team members with their business achievements.
Between them Mark and Kristie reckon they have groomed over 30,000 pooches – that’s got to be a record of some sort.
Chorizo, the Jack Russell x Ridgeback came to them as a rescue dog. In the family he’s often referred to as Spicy Sausage, Rizo, or Cheese Balls (clearly Chorizo loves his food! – we hear he’s also pretty fond of Kristie and Mark’s King size bed)
Mark and Kristie love onboarding new Groomers and helping the more established Groomers to reach the same level of happiness and success they have achieved.
Sharon is yet another groomer who started off with our company as a dog groomer in 2014, working with her daughter for part of that journey. She has sold her business in recent times and joined us as Team Support in 2022.
Sharon loves being on the road, getting to know all the Groomers across Blue Wheelers and Dash and helping team members to keep growing their business.
Her Staffie Cross is called Mavis (cool name!) but also answers to May May. Mavis never tells on Sharon when she sees her having a sneaky chocolate when nobody is home.
Amber, a dog lover through and through, joined Dash DogWash as our Queensland Support in 2023. Amber thrives on Dog Grooming and helping our Queensland team reach their business goals.
