About Cherie – the doggy washer


Cherie with her beloved German Shepherd “Shambe”

Cherie (Adams) Dodd worked as a Veterinarian assistant, dog grooming apprentice and then for a mobile grooming business in Sydney before moving to Nelson Bay Sept 2002.

In April 2004 Cherie took ownership of Skooby Wash and enjoyed washing and pampering doggies around the Port Stephens area for 3.5 years.

Best of friends, Shambe with Sasha the inspiration for our logo.

Cherie had to abruptly stop Skooby Wash after an injury (not related to the dog wash).

Thankfully in Sept 2015 Cherie was able to return to something she loves and now owns and operates “LICKS n WAGS”.
