Dog bath at a doggy salon


Shantee had been starting to stink lately—her bath was long overdue. Marc and I just couldn’t agree on who will give her a bath. Luckily, Shantee was already due to have her shots so we didn’t really have a choice but to give her one.

The staff of Posh Pets Grooming Salon (I think it’s the partner grooming salon of P&B Horseshoe Pet Clinic) along Katipunan Avenue were the ones who gave Shantee her long-overdue bath. They were nice enough to let me in their grooming area to take photos, so I was pretty much able to chronicle every step of Shantee’s bath. Take a look!

I never knew Shantee had such BIG eyes till I saw her all wet like that 😀

All done! Pretty Shantee now smells good 🙂

Shantee’s grooming session cost us around Php300 (about US$7). Cheaper than Georgette’s Closet, I must say. I’m no expert in determining what makes a good dog groomer—it’s all about cost and convenience for me. I haven’t chosen which groomer we’ll have Shantee groomed regularly, so at the moment it’ll probably be dependent on which one is nearer. Georgette’s Closet is just a walking distance away from our home, but Posh Pets is right beside Shantee’s vet clinic. I’ll probably just have her groomed at Posh Pets when we’re visiting the vet since we still need a car to get there. Anyway, in case you’d like to check out Posh Pets Grooming Salon (they have some pretty affordable dog food and grooming things like dog cologne there), here’s their info:

  • Really cute story on Shantee’s bathing session, she is so adorable. I bathe my dog every month, cause then she starts to get stinky, but some people do not believe in bathing dogs. I can not seem to understand why, they need to be clean too, and I think they feel better when they are clean.
    Great article.

    Hi Gail,
    My Sandy gets a bath 2x/month given of Steve. When STeve tells her it’s bath time, she starts walking towards the bathroom but with some apprehension. But afterwards, ud know she feels alot better coz she’ll be running n jumping n rolling, very playful , she feels refreshed.

    What makes me wonder is that she always smell good, even between baths. The only time she gets stinky is when she goes out in the morning n gets alittle wet from dew n thats when the distinct dog smell comes. Other than that, she almost smells like blueberry muffin.
