Ever wondered what it’s like to be a mobile pet groomer in the vibrant city of Cape Town? The team at Clean Paws takes you on a journey through a typical day, showcasing the challenges, joys, and unforgettable moments that come with caring for our furry friends on the go.

Key Takeaways:

The Morning Routine

Getting Ready for the Day

Our day starts early, with the first task being to ensure that the grooming van is clean, stocked, and ready to hit the road. Each van is equipped with:

●      A full water tank for baths and generator incase of emergencies or outages

●      An assortment of grooming tools

●      A variety of shampoos and conditioners for different fur types


Our First Appointment

As the sun rises over Table Mountain, we’re already en route to our first client. Traffic can be unpredictable, but our schedule is meticulously planned to ensure we arrive on time. Each visit feels like catching up with an old friend, as many of our clients are regulars.

Midday: The Heart of Cape Town

Challenges and Rewards

Navigating the bustling streets of Cape Town to reach our appointments presents its challenges, from tight parking spaces to the occasional curious onlooker. Yet, the biggest reward is the wagging tail or content purr that greets us at each stop.

Lunch Break with a View

Cape Town offers some of the most scenic spots to take a quick break. Whether it’s overlooking the ocean or under the shade of a majestic tree, these moments of tranquillity are cherished.

The Afternoon Rush

Special Moments

The afternoons are often the busiest. It’s a mix of first-time clients, who might be nervous or unsure, and our regulars, who can’t wait for their pampering session. Seeing a pet’s transformation, not just in appearance but in spirit, is truly rewarding.

Wrapping Up

As the day winds down, we ensure each pet is looking and feeling their best. The final tasks involve cleaning the van and restocking for the next day. It’s essential to leave everything ready for another day of grooming adventures.
