Dog Groomers In Singapore 2019
Contrary to what some may think, grooming is not just about prettying up your pup. Grooming is also very much about maintaining your dog’s hygiene, health and happiness.
When picking a dog groomer, you’ll not only want a gentle and capable groomer but also a pleasant grooming station where your dog feels safe and comfortable.
Below are 6 dog groomers around Singapore to start you off in your quest to make sure your doggo’s tail never stops wagging.
1. Pawpy Kisses Grooming (Balestier)
This pet shop actually started out selling pet apparel and fashion accessories at Chinatown. Its founder, Carol, eventually expanded the shop into boarding grooming and spa services.
She now has a team of professionally-trained groomers and a clean, stress-free environment for your dog to come into for a grooming session. Carol also recently attended a dog grooming competition in Japan, Happy Dog Contest 2019 — which should go to show their dedication to the craft.
Pawpy Kisses also provides free transport (for selected zones) for your pup in case you’re busy with something else, or if you don’t own a car yourself.

A happy dog starts with a healthy lifestyle
While going to the groomer is essential to your dog’s well-being, there are many other things to consider on a daily basis — whether your dog is getting enough exercise and food that’s clean and nutritious.
Exercise is straightforward. You take Fido out for walks. But when it comes to food, it’s a bit trickier. You’d want to pick food that is clean. That means natural, all-rounded ingredients with no artificial preservatives. You’d also want to make sure the food comes from a trusted brand.
To help narrow your scope, you can consider established pet food brands like NUTRO. The premium pet food brand is committed to all-natural ingredients, which goes through rigorous testing standards, and feeding clean i.e. zero artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.
The benefits of feeding your dog well are plenty. A healthier coat, improved digestion, stronger immunity, teeth, bones and gums, etc. Basically, everything that will keep him in the pink of health and save you the trouble of extra visits to the groomer or vet.
Clean eating doesn’t always mean boring eating. NUTRO’s latest selection of canine kibbles comes in 3 flavours:
- Farm-raised Chicken, Rice, & Vegetables
- Farm-raised Sustainably Sourced Fish, Rice, & Vegetables
- Pasture-fed Lamb, Rice, & Vegetables
If it’s the first time feeding your dog dry food, you can buy just a small packet first to see which flavour he prefers. Start with small amounts to let him get used to the kibbles.
The packets of dog food range from 3-15kg and costs $60-210, and can be bought either online or pet stores all around Singapore. For more information about the products and store locations, visit NUTRO’s website here.
Remember, a happy dog often starts with a healthy and wholesome lifestyle.
