ACE Dog Clipping & Grooming has been in business for over 40 years, 20 years at our current location in Noble Park. The business is owned by Frances Sadler who is a qualified groomer and has been a part of ACE for 4 years. In October 2017 we introduced cat grooming after being trained at Kylie Tatti's Dog & Cat Grooming Academy.
We use hypoallergenic shampoo to ensure your dog will not react to our products.
While your dog is at ACE, they get an opportunity to rest, have a drink and go to the toilet. Unlike mobile groomers, we have thermostat controlled cage dryers for dogs who are too anxious, stressed or old to handle the high-velocity dryer. Our rotational system allows us the time to let your dog dry more slowly under the gentle dryer if he/she needs to.
With our team of staff, we are also more capable of handling the aggressive dogs. We do not sedate here at ACE.
We use shampoo designed especially for cats as dog shampoos are often not suitable for cats. The cats will stay with us for a maximum of 2 hours to keep stress at a minimum. We do not sedate.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact. We are always happy to help as best we can. We look forward to seeing you and your pup soon.
Meet our friendly staff.
