Creating a rewarding career from a passion is the ultimate dream and one that Melanie
Newman has been able to pursue for over fifteen years. Starting out as a dog bather at
a friend’s salon in the late 1990’s, Melanie relished the time she spent with the animals
and decided to turn her passion into a lifestyle.
Initially self taught, Melanie ventured to the US to attend seminars and workshops
hosted by the best dog groomers in the world and opened her own professional dog
grooming salon, Spa Bark Dog Grooming & Spa, in Moonee Ponds Victoria in 2004.
She was formally recognised as an Internationally Certified Master Groomer in 2008.
Melanie’s work has taken her to grooming competitions across Australia and New
Zealand, Holland, Germany, Spain, Italy and various parts of America, and she was
crowned the Australian Royal Supreme Grooming Champion in 2013. Among her other
accolades, Melanie has won best in shows with Miniature Poodles, Standard Poodles,
Bichons and Welsh Terriers.
More recently, Mel has taken on the role of Victorian Assessor for Certificate 3 & 4
for International Grooming Company and is an instructor at the Victorian College of
Dog Grooming. She is a member of Dogs Victoria and is often asked to be a keynote
speaker at industry events.
In 2015 Mel again represented Groom Team Australia in Milan, Italy at the world team
championships where the team placed 12th overall and is now in preparations to
represent the Australian Team again in 2017 in Belgium
Over her 15 year career, Melanie has strived to give the animals she works with the best
quality care, but always found it difficult to find products that were of a high quality, were
gentle on the pets and groomers, and left the coat feeling refreshed and clean. Over a
two year period, Melanie and her husband Cory created the Melanie Newman Salon
Essentials collection, a range of premium canine grooming products that both the dog
grooming industry and home pet owners can be proud to use on their animals.
