our Story

Nestled in the heart of Sea Point is a grooming parlour with a heart of gold and a passion to make a difference.

We go the extra mile for all animals; from bouncing puppies to golden oldies, all pets are treated with care and understanding and everybody leaves with a song in their step; looking good and feeling great!

We believe in helping animals less fortunate than our own pets and are proud of the support we offer
Mdzananda Animal Clinic and the Domestic Animal Rescue Group (Darg).

With so many satisfied pet parents in Sea Point, you’ll be delighted to hear
we have opened a parlour in Hout Bay. Come visit!

our Team


Michelle Wright

Owner & Groomer

My pets have always held a special place in my heart. I earned my City & Guilds qualification in London and since then have dedicated myself to The Dog Box in Sea Point. Since 2017 I am also an Ethology Academy accredited Dog Behaviourist.


Cindy Joseph

Head Groomer & Stylist

I have been grooming animals at The Dog Box since 1991, and have an intimate knowledge of all our regular pets’ behaviours and their parents styling likes and dislikes. I love styling all the breeds! Developing the skill to scissor poodles to perfection is something that I am very proud of.


Des Jaftha

Groomer & Washer

I have been a member of staff at The Dog Box since 1992 and am very familiar with all our pets and owners. I am responsible for bathing and drying all our cats to look like supermodels – check out the photos in our photo gallery.


Thubi Moyo


I have been at The Dog Box for 12 years and have very good relationships with all our customers, both 2 and 4 legged. I love shaping and styling hair and previously worked as a hairstylist in Gauteng for ten years.


Lusani Mapukule


I am a Groomer and a Yorkie Styling Specialist. Although I started out as hairstylist in Johannesburg, after ten years in the industry I needed a change and since I love animals, becoming a Groomer was the obvious choice. For the last five years I have been a Groomer at The Dog Box and much prefer styling dogs.


Kudzi Manganda


For 3 years I have been a full time Groomer at The Dog Box. Previously I was a hair dresser and you may be surprised to know that working with animals is not that different.


Innocent Mosi

Driver & Groomer

Before joining The Dog Box team 4 years ago I worked for The World Wide Fund for Nature for 10 years. I have a vast experience with pets and animals and communicate well with pet owners too.I have been driving for 23 years.


Lauren Silverstone

Chauf-fur Driver

I have worked with animals throughout my adult life; as a Vet Assistant in the USA, where I learned to administer first aid for dogs, a dog walker in Sea Point and for the past 5 years, The Dog Box Chauf-fur driver. In my care your supermodels are super comfortable, super safe and super loved!
