Hidden away in a nondescript building in Causeway Bay, Paw Palace is quite literally as it says—a little palace for pooches. Decorated in pretty pink, dogs are invited into the Japanese salon to unwind and feel the serene benefits of the surroundings. Calm music creates the ambiance while a Japanese pebbled entrance leads the way to the salon area. Each experience is personalised depending on the dog to ensure the best outcome. Guests leave with a print-out photo of their spoiled pup amid a themed backdrop (changes monthly) and a card with a checklist of results from the experience—i.e. skin condition, fur type, etc.

Hot Tails Salon
Head to Happy Valley for a full service pooch pamper with Hot Tails Salon, equipped with friendly staff and catering to dogs large and small. The team offers the finest shampoos, deep conditioning treatments, flea baths, medicated baths, and the most relaxing aroma, herbs and mud spas for a unique and relaxing treatment that will leave you and your pet feeling fully relaxed for days.
Taking a medical approach to grooming, Pawsmetic is part of a vet clinic group with one located around the corner from its location. The groomers treat small and large dogs here and point out if there are any health conditions—particularly with skincare—noted during the grooming process, which follows with any recommendations on how to treat it. This results-oriented treatment ensures that your pet gets the best of both worlds, with a vet-backed approach. Pawsmetic is looking into opening its second branch later this year. In the meantime, its Jordan establishment is the perfect one-stop-shop to grooming and pet necessities.
