The Dog Spa Philippines Experience

As an owner of a Lhasa Apso, I always make sure to set aside a budget for my dog's grooming. And because my dog has an attitude problem, choosing a groomer is not that easy. I've had some experiences before when my dog needs to be sedated in order for him to be groomed.

Luckily, I was invited by a friend to try a grooming center in Libis. It is called "The Dog Spa Philippines". At first, I was hesitant to bring my dog because he might bite the groomer. So, I did my research first. I found out that their staff  has a minimum of 5 years working in dog related industries. Their groomers are not newly trained groomers, but rather, dog lovers who have been professionally grooming dogs/cats for at least 5 years. Learning that they are experts in their craft, made me confident that their groomers can handle by Bratinella dog.

My friend suddenly cancelled our trip to the groomer, so I decided to go ahead on my own. Being a cam less person made me feel bad because I was not able to capture Einstein's struggle with the groomer, well luckily he did not made an attempt to bite him, just some growling and barking, a typical all bark no bite kind of  dog.

When I saw Einstein, after he was groomed. I thought it was a different dog, he was super clean and he smelled so sweet, I think they have used a strawberry scented shampoo on him. And because I was very satisfied with the result of Einstein's grooming, I am sure that it will be the start of my good relationship with Dog Spa Philippines. They are indeed a place, where everyone are dog lovers. the staffs are working not because they need money, they work because they love what they are doing. I should have captured the sweet smile of the receptionist, and how gentle the groomer was, I need to have a cam now!

  1. I've tried The Dog Spa also because of my friends. What i like about them is that they also take care of the owners, not just the dogs. The place smells really good -- no pet store scent. Now, i'm the one telling my friends about it. Once you've tried them, you wont go anywhere else.

    Great article, by the way.

    1. Hi,

    1. Hi,

      Yes, I agree they are so much better than most of their competitors. :)

  3. I go here all the time coz ive seen how they clean the stores. Ive also met the owner and very OC nga talaga sha. She has her dogs own so shes also very concerned that they dont get fleas etc. best dog place if you ask me.
