Hot Stuff: Ruffy Looking Scruffy? See These Celeb-Approved Dog Groomers In Manila!

It can be somewhat challenging for us as pet owners to find groomers we can trust to give our furry friends the best overall experience. We all hope for gentle service when it comes to our pets, but we also want them primped and pampered thoroughly. Here are a couple of celeb-checked grooming service providers where stars gave their own stars.


1. Better Dog Salon, Makati (at their Canine Behavior Center) For all you Dog Whisperer show fans out there, this is the place in the metro where good dogs rule the pack, and "bad" dogs find better ways to behave. The obedience school also helped train Kathryn Bernardo's golden retriever, Cloud, a few years back. Her dog's teacher then was Jojo Isorena.

The obedience school also has its own salon, a number of well-satisfied Better Dog clients have already posted their post-grooming dawg-swag online.

BetterDog Canine Behavior Center, YMC Building, 2320 Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati City 1232, Philippines (No Landlines) Via Globe Mobile +639175000039

2. Posh Paws MNL Mobile Pet Salon (Pet grooming that comes to you...) For Paolo and Sam Valenciano their love for their ewok-ish Shih-Tzu, Trooper knows no pet-lover bounds. They're highly particular about how and where he's groomed.  Once in a while, Posh Paws has come to the rescue, understandably there are days where the couple simply can't leave home because they have a doting baby girl who's quite the influencer herself, Nataleia Martine.

Posh Paws's home service has effectively ticked their box for convenience and satisfaction. There's even a doggie window on their mobile van from where you can watch your furry family member get on fleek.

3. Dogs & the City (BGC, Taguig) has Paolo's sister Kiana Valenciano's dog owner trust as well. We asked Manila's fresh and hip song siren Kiana where she prefers to take her happily energetic cocker spaniel, Kylo, and she shared with us where and exactly why.

"I know they take care of Kylo because every time I take him out for a walk in that area, he runs in and greets his groomers and the rest of the staff.  When I don't let him go to that area during his walk, he cries. He just loves them (laughs)."
