It’s Pet Owner’s Independence Day today (18 April) – a day to celebrate us pet owners’ blood, sweat, and tears invested into caring for our pets. And what better day to celebrate than to take a day off… perhaps even let our pets take our place?
Just kidding. Our furry friends have been and will always be the boss of us. The king of the household.
And here are 5 pet grooming salons that’ll treat them like the royalty that they are.
1. Pet Loft

A wholesome and cozy environment for pets and owners alike, Pet Loft offers various basic and full grooming packages at affordable prices, and even a special, stress-free session for your pet’s first grooming to familiarize it with the process.
There are also sofas, water dispensers, and magazines in the salon for you to occupy yourself, should you choose to wait around in the salon.
Pet Loft also offers photography and pet day care services.

2. A Dog’s Life Pet Salon
Whether it’s skincare, dental care, fur care, or a pawdi-care you’re after, this salon’s got you covered. Heck, it’s a dog spa offering an array of spa treatments using natural herbs. In particular, they’re known for their specialty secret-recipe fur restoration treatment.
The groomers are gentle and sociable as well, but if your dog is independent enough to be left alone at the groomer’s, you can always pop by to one of the many cafes in the Tiong Bahru district!

And rest assured it’ll be in good hands, too – the founder, Ian, is a graduate of the reputable Art of Pet Grooming school. This animal lover has got mad impressive skills!

This salon specializes in rabbit and guinea pig grooming. And boy, are they knowledgeable about these tiny balls of fur.
They even offer rabbit ear tattoo services! (It’s not a big thing in Singapore, but it’s fairly common in other countries for rabbits that get sent for shows to have their number tattooed on their ear.) You’re going to have one badass rabbit.
