Ever since we were kids, we have enjoyed the company of our four legged friends. It is with the passion and enthusiasm cultivated through our childhood that we have now taken up dog grooming as a vocation. Whiskers and Tails; The Dog Grooming Salon and Spa has been created with the single important agenda of quality pet care and grooming by Irene James and Merylene Walekar (both sisters). While Irene enjoys getting wet with a clients’ pet at the bath tub, she is also currently looking after business development of Franchising of Whiskers & Tails outlets throughout the country; other than running one more very successful business of serviced apartments (www.corporateshelters.com)… she says spending time with her furry clients is far de-stressing.
Merylene who was a homemaker…said a huge YES to Irene when the idea was shared to her…Both are married and have two kids….With some adjustments at home, a huge support from the family, they now play purrfect groomers at the salon. We eagerly await a dog at the salon…once an appointment is confirmed and what gives us sheer joy is to see a dog transformed from a shedding coat to a de-shedded silky coat…or a dirty muddy dog getting a squeaky clean bath…or a terribly matted furry dog getting a detangled finished coat…all of which are our speciality treatments….says an excited Merylene!
Shampoos & Conditioners used by us are 100% safe, time-tested, imported and bio-degradable…pH balance of which is taken care of and specially formulated for dogs and cats. What works for one breed or one coat may not work for the other…is what we believe in….So there is a solution for every dog that walks in….A finishing touch is what separates us from all others! Owners just wait too excitedly to receive their pet purrfumed and finished with a cute bow or banadana!!
We are Certified Pet Groomers and as professionals, we bring specialized skills which ensure optimal attention to improving the hygiene & health of animals. This is done through the use of tools & products of the highest quality coupled with our sincere love for animals which helps reduce the animal’s stress of dealing with a new place and our own careful handling keeping in mind the temperament and breed of the dog.
We strongly urge our clients to start grooming their pets from an early stage. This guarantees a bond between the dog and the groomer and also helps train the dog to accept the process as a fun getaway, rather than an alien experience.

Bought a cockerspaniel pup from them, said she wouldd give the papers in a month as we had paid for the dog and papers. After concictently calling for 3 months she refused to eventually take our calls, kept giving excuses even threats of taking them to the police dont seem to work on Merlynne, our dog is 2 years old now, and still hasnt given any papers. Theyre also inbreeding puppies. Claims to have champion breed puppies but are actually coning people. Made big claims of giving the micro chip etc, Please do not buy pups or even use their services this is an absolute con job. .

I took a three months service and had to leave it in one month. Marylene is very unprofessional lady and she does not even be in the clinic for most of the time when i took my lhasa apso. She used to msg one hour before about the timings changed and i had to change my entire schedule for the day.
Also she has hired a nepali boy and when i asked her to come she said that she was busy and could not come. If that is the case than what is the use of going to a professional. She did not even refund me for the remaining 2 months. The nepali boy could not handle my lhasa apso, but i dont blame him.
I request all pls not to go whiskers and tails kandivali and if you think im lyiing or that this is a fake, ask marylene why tuffy the lhasa apso left the contract in one month orr you can call me on 9833881310 .
