Welcome to Carolina Pet Spa 

We provide cage free dog grooming services in our pet spa and pet care facility located on N. Salem St and Apex Peakway just north of downtown Apex, NC. We have been serving dog owners in Apex, Cary, Holly Springs and Morrisville for over 12 years.

Because your pet's care and comfort are our number one concern, our staff of experienced certified professional dog groomers, and registered veterinary technicians take all precautions necessary to keep your pet safe while being groomed.  All grooming is done by appointment. Our cage free environment allows your pet's grooming time to be approximately 2-3 hours (breed dependent), thus making all day visits unnecessary. 

We believe this approach for the care of our pet-clients results in a less stressful, and more satisfying grooming experience.

Benefits Of Using Carolina Pet Spa:

Understanding of Each Breed’s Temperament Our groomers understand that each breed possesses a unique temperament which requires the use of different handling techniques to gain your pet's trust and cooperation during the grooming procedure.

News and Articles of Interest

Understanding of a Breed’s Unique Medical Issues – Awareness of your pet's health issues helps your groomer better accommodate your pet's unique needs to minimize stress during grooming.

Groomer Consistency – Our groomers understand that dogs are individuals possessing unique personalities, and treat them with respect. Upon request, we assign pets to groomers so your groomer will get to know your pet on an individual level. Therefore, the care your dog receives will be provided by the same groomer each visit. Consistency is important for the development of trust and cooperation.

No Cages – At Carolina Pet Spa we do not believe in using cages as they cause stress to your pet. Most grooming sessions will be done within 2-3 hours. You
will be able to pick your pet up as soon as they are finished being groomed. If you pet needs to stay longer, no problem. Just let us know your schedule when your pet is dropped off for grooming.  Certain circumstances may warrent additional fees.

Drop- Off/Pick-Up – As pet parents with busy schedules, you have the choice of leaving your pet with us for several hours, or you may wait comfortably in our pet parent lounge for your pet to be groomed.

Be On Time for Appointments - Our appointments are scheduled for a certain amount of time, and again this is breed dependent.

Pet Portraits

"I have been a customer of Carolina Pet Spa for approximately five years.  Jennifer has been grooming my granddog, Lexie, a shitzu, who resides in Boone,NC. Jennifer does a wonderful job and Lexie is always so excited after she has been groomed.  Jennifer does an especially good job on Lexie's face. Lexie will not let me get  near her face with a brush so she always needs Jennifer's special touch around her face.  Without hesitation I would recommend Jennifer at Carolina Pet Spa, especially for small dogs." ~ MJ McCabe

"Just picked up our dog Bailey and she looks adorable!!! What a wonderful job, thank you, thank you!!"  Dottie Moorhous

"This is the best spa for dogs! Been using this Spa for 7 years!!!"  ~ Ann Crider

"The Rusty Bucket shop dogs, Buddy and Bubba, love Jennifer at Carolina Pet Spa. Going to get groomed is like going to play time - she doesn't put them in cages but lets them run around and play while they are waiting. She does a great job on the grooming and they are happy-happy." ~ Pam Thorpe
