The Best Salons for Cat Grooming in Dubai
Before we get right into our list of the best salons for cat grooming in Dubai, check out the criteria we used in choosing them:
1. Pet Love
Pet Boarding & Daycare
Grooming & Salon
|ADDRESS||Shop no. 5, The Jewel`s Tower, Marina Promenade - Dubai - UAE|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 54 435 2016|
|HOURS||Every day: 7 AM–10 PM|
|Quality Service||★★★★★ (5/5)|
Located in the scenic neighborhood of Dubai Marina, Pet Love has one of the most comprehensive shed-out treatments for pets.
It’s also one of the cheaper options in the city mostly because it allows owners to have a range of options from the complete grooming package to individualized treatments.
We think that giving customers the options to be flexible with their pet’s grooming needs makes Pet Love a more economical choice.
On top of that, it gives special rates to regular customers.
As for its accessibility, it only has one location. And while it is located in a highly accessible commercial area, the lack of locations around the city and mobilized services limits its reach.
But for those who can come to avail of its service, their pets are treated to great grooming services.
The salon has a one-to-one policy. We think this is great because it trains its personnel to groom cats on their own.
This means that those felines who get easily overwhelmed or are anxious in loud and visually crowded environments can easily be at ease throughout the grooming process.
The salon’s products are also carefully curated so that it only uses ones made out of natural products.
However, we recommend getting your cat tested and asking for the salon’s product ingredients to make sure of your cat’s safety.
While natural products are great because they are safer to use compared to ones with artificial chemicals, these can also cause allergic reactions.
All in all, Pet Love shines with its amazing and affordable cat grooming services. So if you’re willing to put in the effort to bring your cat to Dubai Marina, the rewards are worth the trip.
I cannot recommend them enough
“Ziggy goes to pet love day care every week and I cannot recommend them enough. They care for him like he’s part of their family. Walking and socialising him with other dogs and sending me constant updates to let me know how happy, active and safe his time with them is. They are reliable, kind and incredible value for the exquisite service they provide. To top it all off they even do a pick up and drop off service so I can rely on them getting zig and dropping him home if I’m delayed in work and need the support.” —Grainne Shannon, Google Reviews
Excellent service at Pet Love
“Pet love is a great place to go for services for your pets because they provide excellent quality of service to their clients and the staff is also customer and pet-friendly and they also offer many products to choose from! My dog is always excited to go there! Highly recommended!!!” —John Rafael Dejarme, Google Reviews
2. Sugar Paws
|ADDRESS||Shop No. 2, Ahmad Mohd Saif bin Shaffar Building, Dubailand Residence Complex, Wadi Al Safa 5, Dubai|
|HOURS||Every day: 11 AM–8 PM|
|Quality Service||★★★★★ (5/5)|
If there’s a salon that understands cat grooming the most compared to any others in Dubai, it’s Sugar Paws.
For this company, grooming is more than just shampoos and blow-drying. We love that it puts an emphasis on assessing each individual pet’s grooming needs.
Its services are also pretty affordable too. We’re big fans of its options, which range from quick services to a full grooming treatment.
The wide range of grooming services really helps pet owners to save on money by only choosing what they need instead of getting the whole package.
Sadly, this salon only has one location and doesn’t offer mobile pet grooming services. And while we understand that it would rather do its services in a calming environment for the pets, it doesn’t help with the fact.
But it is a great choice for those who want deep cleaning and grooming treatments as it offers eye cleaning, ear cleaning, and anal gland cleaning on top of the general grooming treatments.
We’re also big fans of the organic products the salon uses that are all soap, paraben, and sulfate free.
These make sure that there aren’t harmful chemicals that come into contact with your pet’s skin and cause long-term problems.
However, organic doesn’t mean that the natural ingredients won’t cause allergic reactions to your cat, so always make sure to ask for the ingredients before getting them groomed here.
They always take great care during grooming sessions
“We’ve been coming here for the past 6 months and their service is always outstanding.
They take great care of our pup and he’s always happy to go for another grooming session.
The attention to details, personalized service and willingness to go the extra mile is unbeatable. Thank you guys!” —Adina Manolache, Google Reviews
They helped calm my cat down with no problem
“We have a very sensitive female cat, she doesn’t allow to approach her easily. Cutting nails is a total nightmare 😑. At the groomers it took us barely a few minutes, they handled her nicely and with care. The prior communication was also great. Will definitely come back again.” —Volha Korban, Google Reviews
|ADDRESS||Suite M-02, Light Commercial Tower, Al Barsha South 3 - Dubai - United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 (4) 441-5874+971|
|HOURS||Every day: 10 AM–8 PM|
|Quality Service||★★★★★ (5/5)|
Dubai’s specialized grooming salon, Soaptopia, delivers amazing cat grooming services to its customers’ doorsteps.
While not the cheapest option on our list, it’s not the most expensive one either. Its wide and flexible range of grooming packages allows pet owners to cut down costs by only availing of what their cat currently needs.
However, we do think that small dogs and cats should be priced similarly. With Soaptopia, the rates for cat grooming are the same as that for medium-sized dogs.
The slightly more expensive rates are worth it if the groomers come right to your doorstep.
With online booking options and a reach that spans the entire Dubai metroplex, Soaptopia’s accessibility is incomparable.
And its service quality isn’t something to ignore, too. We love that it takes the time to sit with the owners before anything so they can understand their pets and their needs.
The salon also does one-on-one grooming, which is great for sensitive and anxious cats. The grooming also happens in a very calming and quiet environment to prevent pets from acting out.
Another great thing about Soaptopia is that it is one of the few salons to use USDA-certified organic shampoos and conditioners that are proven to promote healing and preferable for breeds with sensitive skin.
All in all, Soaptopia takes accessibility to a new level with its specialized mobile grooming services and amazing organic products that are great for all kinds of cats.
Amazing pet store!
“Soaptopia is by far one the best mobile grooming services we have used since moving to Dubai. We booked online and the cheerful team showed up promptly. They well dressed and showed interest and took time to understand our full requirements. We weren’t sure of the length to cut our dogs hair (Charlie) so the groomer shared an example hair chart which we found quite helpful. Once we made our call off they went and Charlie’s returned within the hour clean and noticeably happier than usual. We used the organic package and frankly we couldn’t be happier with the results, the scent was so good we can’t stop hugging our dog😊
We highly recommend this company and will continue to use them going forward. Well done team Soaptopia and keep up the great work!” —Joe Rabah, Google Reviews
Very helpful for first-time pet owners
“Incredibly easy to book the service and came right on time. My cat Poe was incredibly relaxed on returning home, and the advice attached with the card they give really helps first time pet owners figure out how to groom their cats to keep their coats nice and healthy! Definitely will be using Soaptopia again.” —Maegra Agur, Google Reviews
4. Paws & Relax
|ADDRESS||Paws & Relax, Shop 13, Mudon Community Centre, Mudon, Dubai. G04, Lake Shore Tower, Cluster Y, JLT, Dubai|
|CONTACT DETAILS||058 834 1512 04 426 7023|
|HOURS||Every day: 9 AM–9 PM|
|Quality Service||★★★★★ (5/5)|
Knowing the struggles of taking care of pets while living a busy life, Paws & Relax makes it easy for Dubai cat owners to have them groomed even if they’re not at home.
Paws & Relax is on the more expensive side, but in return, it provides convenience and accessibility.
However, its grooming services are not that flexible. With the cheaper options offering baths only and the more expensive ones including everything, owners are forced to avail of the expensive treatments just to get their pets the treatments they need.
What we love about this salon is its delivery and pick-up services, which come in really handy when you’re too busy to drive your cat to the salon.
Paws & Relax can pick them up for grooming and return them afterward with no problem. Your cats are in safe hands with this service.
The best thing about this service is that it is free if you live within 5kms of the salon.
When it comes to grooming, we’re big fans of how Paws & Relax considers every aspect of your cat. From the type of coat they have to their temperament.
But we’re not really confident with the kinds of products it uses for grooming. The brands are the generic kind and the salon admitted that these are not organic products.
So while our cat still came out smelling good, we recommend asking for the ingredients beforehand to make sure everything is up to your standards.
All in all, Paws & Relax doubles down on the importance of convenience with its pick and delivery services for your pets.
And while it is a bit more expensive than our other options, it knows what it’s doing and always takes everything into consideration before starting the grooming process on your cat.
My cat is never safer than when she’s with them
“Ensuring customers are happy is one thing … ensuring pets are safe is more important. Staff are incredible and deal with many difficult situations. Professionally. They will never compromise the safety of a pet for the sake of making money.” —Michele Cullen, Google Reviews
Always happy and satisfied with their service
“We have been sending our dog here since they opened, and they are always really good. They pick up and drop off our dog and always been happy with the grooming, and delivery of anything we need.” —Julia Spencer, Google Reviews
5. The Petshop
|ADDRESS||The Pet Shop LLC Mega Store Dubai Investment Park 1 Near Premier Inn Hotel - Dubai - United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 800 7387467|
|HOURS||Every day: 8:30 AM – 9 PM|
|Quality Service||★★★★☆ (4/5)|
With 3 locations nationwide and a mobile grooming service that covers Dubai, Sharjah, and Abu Dhabi, the Petshop has the best reach of all of the pet grooming salons in Dubai.
We also love that all its mobile grooming stations are customized to bring maximum comfort to the pets. It’s temperature-controlled and fully equipped with all the grooming tools needed.
However, after trying both, we found that our cat was much more relaxed with the in-store services.
We think it’s mainly because the mobile stations tend to be a bit crowded with the personnel and all of the equipment in a small space.
This salon offers a lot of deep cleaning options, as well as grooming upgrades when it comes to shampoos and conditioners to address specific issues.
It’s also well-known for its 5-star quality service, which is what makes it such a prominent choice when it comes to cat grooming in Dubai.
And when it comes to the salon’s products, we love that the pet owners have options.
They can choose generic products if they know their cat isn’t sensitive or has health conditions, or they can upgrade the products to more organic ones.
This flexibility helps cat owners cut down costs if needed, which is always a good thing in our books.
That being said, the salon’s rates, in general, are quite more expensive than our other picks. Is it worth it? That depends on what you prioritize.
For us, it’s worth it because we know we were paying for the full-equipped grooming process that ensures the safety of our cat and addresses the grooming issues she needs.
All in all, The Petshop proves that it is one of the best because of its wide reach and accessibility.
On top of that, the flexibility with the products being used for grooming is incomparable and worth the price for us.
Highly recommend them
“I’ve just tried The Pet Shop yesterday for the first time and I was really impressed. A huge place for your pet (any kind) needs. They have a wide range of all the items u might need.
They have a variety of grooming packages, the staff is very nice and helpful and they deal with the pets with so much love.
Highly recommend them!” —Lara El Ghandour, Google Reviews
Will keep coming back
“Amazing place to find a massive selection of items for every animal possible. The grooming services are fantastic and reasonable in price. This establishment is THE best pet store in the UAE!” —Charles Vallas, Google Reviews
