ANGELS GROOMING PARLOUR
/// OUR PARLOUR
We love pets. We love grooming. And we love being really good at what we do, so that you know you and your pet are always in good hands.
Many of our celebrity clients appreciate that we do not “name drop”. For us, the dog (or cat) is the most important one and we do our best to ensure they leave us looking and feeling fabulous and are always happy to come back to us.
On the flip side, we also have more than our fair share of difficult dogs who have been referred to for our gentle techniques to rehabilitate back into grooming.
WE ARE EXPERT GROOMERS
/// OUR GROOMERS
We offer many things that are not available everywhere, with three hand stripping specialists onsite, three Master Groomers (one of which is a Sasha Riess certified Poodle Expert), Cat Grooming Specialists and staff who are highly experienced in dog behaviour and handling.

/// WE ARE TOTALLY COMMITTED TO GIVING YOU AND YOUR PET THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
It’s no accident that the word ‘professional’ is in our name. Our commitment to every one of our clients – four legged and two legged – is that you will always experience a professional service of internationally high standards.
HOW WE WORK
/// OUR PROCESS WHEN WE GROOM YOUR PET
PRE GROOM & BATH
First we assess your dog, checking for matting or skin issues. Then it’s off to the bath for a luxuriously bubbly massage to get them squeaky clean and smelling great.
We check the ears to ensure they are in good health, and clean out any dirt or waxy build up.
First a fun towel dry (their favourite part) and then an invigorating blow dry and brush out getting out any loose coat and stimulating the skin to encourage good health.
BRUSH & COMB
Making sure that the comb glides effortlessly through the entire dog means less shedding at home and ensures a great finish.
Whether you want your dog’s hair long or short we will deliver a quality experience for your furry friend, making them look the best they possibly can.
Once completed, we check if you need any changes and if you love it, we will record the groom for next time so you get exactly what you want every time.
