Payment & Rates
Do I make payment before or after grooming?
All payments are to be made before your pet’s grooming session commences.
Why do I need to pay the Housecall Service Fees?
The rates of our grooming services do not include Housecall Service Fees.
Are there any hidden costs that might incur after the grooming session?
We are very transparent about our prices and would like to assure you that all costs will be made known to you before the grooming session commences.
Please note that all of our grooming rates are fixed, with the exception of dematting and undercoat removal. The pricing of dematting and undercoat removal is dependent on the severity of tangles and matts, and the amount of fur removed respectively.
Why are prices for Dematting, Removal of Undercoat and Full/Basic Grooming not fixed?
Dematting is chargeable depending on the severity of tangles and matts in your pet’s fur while the price of undercoat removal is based on the amount of fur removed. Our rates for full/basic grooming also ranges depending on the size and weight of your pet.
How do I make payment?
Fuss-free payment can be made via this link https://securecheckout.hit-pay.com/payment-request/@the-grooming-angels
How often should I groom my pet?
We recommend every 4-6 weeks at least! But this would also depend on every pet’s individual needs. When in doubt, feel free to consult our friendly groomers for advice on a frequency that is most suitable for your furry companion.
How long does a grooming session take?
A grooming session may take between half an hour to 3 hours depending on the service requested. There are also other factors such as behaviour of the pet or more complex grooming situations (matted fur, undercoat, parasites) which may extend the duration of the grooming session.
Can I watch my pet being groomed?
Most definitely. We invite all pet parents to stay on to watch the grooming process. However, if your pet becomes too distracted and begins to move around too much, for the safety of your pet, we may need to request that you watch from beyond your pet’s field of vision.
Can I take picture of my pet while it is being groomed?
Sure thing! However, we would encourage you to snap your Insta-worthy shots from a distance as your pet might get distracted during grooming and move about too much.
Are you able to groom my senior pet?
Yes we are able to. We take extra care when grooming pets that are of senior age, injured or have underlying health conditions. In such cases, we may groom your pet for comfort over style, to ensure that they are kept comfortable throughout the whole grooming process.
If you believe that your pet requires special attention, sometimes two groomers may be neccessary to handle your pet. Do speak to us before booking an appointment for further advice.
My pet is aggressive, are you able to groom him/her?
If your pet has a history of aggressive behaviour, do speak to us before booking an appointment for further advice.
If your pet should display aggressive tendencies or attempt to hurt our groomers in the course of their work, we may find it necessary to discontinue the provision of services for their safety, or ask that another groomer assists with the session if they are available. If this happens, you will be informed that an extra care fee will apply at $80.
My pet has parasites, can I send it for grooming?
Yes. We offer treatments that are highly effective in dealing with parasites and fungal issues. It is compulsory that we first treat your pet before we can proceed with any other grooming services.
For ringworms, we highly recommend a visit to the vet first to get anti-fungal medication. This will work hand in hand with our own anti-fungal treatment.
Can I make a request for a specific cut and style?
Definitely! We encourage you to freely discuss the cut or style that you have in mind with our groomers in detail before we begin grooming. If you have any pictures on hand that you could share with us, that would be fantastic and would likely result in a more satisfactory outcome.
