The Ultimate Guide to Pet Grooming in Dhaka

Often people think that grooming your pets is all about bathing them and trimming their nails. But our beloved furry creatures deserve so much more love than that.

Why is your pet’s grooming important?

Grooming your pet is important for many reasons, mainly to take care of their hygiene and to improve their appearance. By grooming your pet, you will also address possible health issues, as this will allow you to catch any underlying disease, disorder or formation early on.

Can you groom your pet at home?

Basically you can.

You have to be very, very careful and patient when it comes to pets. There are many home grooming kits such as brushes and equipment available at pet stores in Dhaka to make the process easier. However, home grooming always carries the risk of a sloppy trimming job or disgruntled animals and that is why we should leave grooming to the professionals.

Professional grooming? In Dhaka?

Gone are the days when vets moonlit as groomers, as people like Farzana Leo and Ahona Rahman are changing the grooming game in Bangladesh.

Farzana Leo, founder of Marlin’s World, the first true pet grooming business in Dhaka, started her business in honor of her beloved dog. For Ahona Rahman, the founder of Pampered Paws, the lackluster state of the grooming industry in Bangladesh is what prompted her to take matters into her own hands.

Pet owners will be delighted to know that Marlin’s World and Pampered Paws offer quality grooming performed by trained professionals.

Is professional grooming better?

The answer to that is a resounding 100% yes.

Professional groomers are trained not only to handle unruly pets, but also to do their job in a way that is comfortable for pets and pet owners. Farzana mentions that she always schedules her clients in small numbers so that she can devote her time and the best care to each fur baby.

What is professional pet grooming?

The grooming that most of us think of when we think of grooming an animal is a simple washing and trimming of the nails. However, pet grooming also includes fur trimming, fur shaping, pet spas as well as ear cleaning and oral care.

Isn’t pet grooming expensive?

Of course, doing basic grooming at home costs little to no cost. However, most pet owners will be shocked to find that most care isn’t extremely expensive. In fact, most grooming services are between 500 and 5,000 Tk. Pampered Paws even offers dedicated packages tailored to the different needs of cats and dogs!

Ultimately, every pet owner simply wants the best for their beloved pets and nothing is more pampered than a day of grooming!
