1st Dog Grooming Experience with Sopra Ginza Singapore (Dog Salon) ❤
you are not aware from my previous post, I had got myself a puppy!! She is a
Silky Terrier and her name is YOki ❤ !!
Refer to my previous post >> Click Here to get a sneak peek of her younger days photo when she is about
3-4mths old. She is now 6 months old already… how I wish that time can stop
right here and she can be forever a puppy (wishful thinking of all puppy
Ok~ back to the grooming experience
with Sopra Ginza. Why did I choose Sopra Ginza out of so many pet grooming options
available in Singapore? Actually I was recommended by one of my friend who
owned silky terrier as well. We chat about almost everything that regards to our
gal (pups). Just like parents talking
about their own kids. So I tot why not give Sopra Ginza grooming a go. So after
much consideration, I texted Sopra Ginza and booked my appointment for full grooming. The person who replied my texts was really nice and patience with my questions and answered almost
everything I asked. Haha…
Sopra Ginza Singapore is
located at 236 River Valley Road S(238294), which is pretty close to where I stay.
Quite convenient and easy to locate and most importantly! I have direct bus
there… of cos I put Yoki in dog carrier if not I think I will be thrown out of
the bus. Sopra Ginza provides service like
grooming, spa, day care, pets learning classes, sales of puppies, online shops
and they do provide ala carte services like ear cleaning, nail clipping etc
etc. Click here to find out the price list
and services available.
I have chosen the normal full
grooming for Yoki and she falls under Yorkshire’s pricing which is $65. On the
grooming day itself, I rushed and get ready and took Yoki over to Sopra. The 1st
impression I have was.. wow the huge clear glass!! This allows passerby to view
the whole grooming process!! Cool isn’t it? Unlike some grooming places, they
do not allow pet owners to view the whole grooming process which kind of worries
them a little (after so many pet abuse news I heard recently).
When I stepped in the shop, there were barriers to prevent the
doggies in the shop from coming out. There were so many dogs inside.. just like
a big family and they were all so excited when they see Yoki.. Probably because
Yoki was the only female dog in the shop at that moment (my Yoki is too pretty
and cute too resist lah!! Ahem~) I did not managed to snap a picture of the dogs inside the shop as i wasn't sure if I am allowed to.
I meet the groomer, Ms Kumiko
who is a Japanese. She is very nice and patience while explaining to me the
grooming process and also on how she intend to trim Yoki’s hair. She also asked
me how I want Yoki to be styled. After much discussion, Yoki was brought in for
her nice bath by Ms Zane who is a groomer as well.
Yoki came out after about 20
mins or so.. did not managed to time as I was busy playing with the doggies in
the shop.. cute overloaded!! Then Zane proceed on with cleaning Yoki’s ears, shaving
her paw pads and Kumiko joined in to trim Yoki’s little head!! Both were very
gentle with Yoki, and she wasn’t struggling or anything like what she did when I
trim her (Angry!! She only bullies us!!). There is only one time where Yoki
used her hand to push Kumiko’s hand away from her face, so cute! But Kumiko is
still very patience and nice with Yoki. The whole fur cutting process took
about another 30 mins or so as the fur on Yoki’s body is regularly trimmed by
me so nothing really much to cut also jus that I am not professional as them to
shape her messy head!! Haha~

Zane working on Yoki ☆
Kumiko also added one cute red
bow on Yoki after trimming… Super Sweet!! Yoki would never let me tie her
hair!! Hope I have Kumiko’s skill on tying Yoki’s hair!!! For every customer who has their pet groomed at Sopra Ginza, a
picture of your dog will be taken after grooming and printed out. This picture
will then be pasted onto your Sopra Diary (pretty unique and cool I feel). Day
care is also complimentary for dogs to stay till closing time after grooming.
Doggies can play and socialise there where owners can go shopping without
feeling guilty that their dogs are alone at home. Yoki did not get the chance
to enjoy the day care as I brought her home after the grooming since I am not
Overall, I am really satisfied
with the Grooming experience and would definitely bring Yoki back another time
and maybe for Spa treatment as well.. I wonder how will she feel when she is
having her mud spa.. haha~
Ok long winded post!! Anyway do
visit Sopra Ginza if you are looking for nice and reliable dog grooming shop!!
