Where is Mr Teddy Bear Dog Parlour?
Mr Teddy Bear Dog Parlour is conveniently located in Bowen Hills, approximately 4km north of Brisbane's CBD. This makes it the ideal service for city workers who are looking for a place to spoil their pooch while they're on the daily grind, without veering too far from their daily commute to and from work. Mr Teddy Bear also has parking directly at the front of their shop, making for quick and easy pick and drop ups, not dissimilar to school runs for human children! Their opening hours, from 7am to 6pm daily on weekdays, also fit in well with 9-5 workers. As for pawrents who want a day off from their furbabies, Mr Teddy Bear is also open on Saturdays from 9am to 4pm. Convenience at its finest!

More information on some of the services offered at Mr Teddy Bear.
If you're looking for quality services at extremely reasonable prices, look no further - because it was with this mindset that Mr Teddy Bear was established. With prices starting from just $15 for a basic spa wash and towel dry, there's bound to be a service that suits all needs and budgets. Wanting something slightly more luxurious? How about their Deluxe Spa Wash, which also includes a gentle and warm blow-dry, nails clipped, and ears cleaned, from just $25?
Or how about their Signature Spa Bath, which includes a milk spa wash, a massage treatment with activated charcoal and essential oil scrub from Melanie Newman, a gentle and warm blow-dry, nails clipped, and ears cleaned, from just $50? This treatment is great for dogs with sensitive ski or allergies; not only does it help dogs recover from itchy skin issues, it can also replenish the moisture in their skin. The secret behind Mr Teddy Bear's milk spa treatment is the use of microbubbles, generated from their state-of-the-art spa bath. To qualify as "microbubble", each bubble must be less than a 1000 micrometers in size. This allows them to penetrate hair follicles and skin pores while not passing through epidermis.
In need of some grooming to keep your furbaby looking fabulous? Mr Teddy Bear can help! Prices start from just $50 or a hygiene clip (which includes a spa wash). Other services include a Hawaii Clip, Teddy Clip, Breed Traditional Clip, Full Hand Scissoring and the "Strip Out"; there is a wide array of different clips to showcase owner Sisi's extensive experience in the field. Sisi is a multi-award winner groomer with international training, in addition to being a qualified accountant. Remember to check out the impressive number of grooming award ribbons displayed in the shop front!
You can even dye your dog with funky designs, of course using 100% dog friendly dye! Dyes are semi-permanent, with prices starting from just $20. For some inspiration, check out Sisi's cute Pomeranian Lamb Chop!

After your dog's groom, they'll be given a private little enclosure for them to rest while they wait for you to pick them up. This private little enclosure includes an actual bed frame for smaller dogs, topped with a handmade pet bed from Indie Boho, a Brisbane based small business. Larger dogs also get to rest in style, with XL sized Indie Boho dog beds. Good enough for us humans to want to curl up for a power nap too!
If you feel like your pet might want to play with other dogs instead of resting in their own private enclosure, why not book them into daycare after their groom? Oh and of course, if your pet doesn't need a groom or wash, you can book them directly into daycare! Prices are extremely reasonable and cheaper than other local day care services, starting from just $30 for a "half day pass" (for less than 6 hours or on Saturday), and $42 for a "day pass" (from 7am to 6pm on a weekday). To get a better value for money, why not purchase a package deal? 5 day packages are valid for 6 months, and 10 and 20 day packages are valid for 12 months.
Mr Teddy Bear has four separated facilities to accommodate for different breeds, sizes, temperaments and ages. This includes three themed indoor enclosures with play facilities, and one outdoor area lined with fake grass. Each enclosure is separated using a secure doggy door. Unlike some other daycares who do not allow potential clients to view their daycare area, Mr Teddy Bear not only allows you to check it out before making up your mind - they encourage it. After all, happy customers are the best customers! There are also surveillance cameras set up in the staff room, grooming room, and spa area - this ensures 24/7 supervision and guarantees your pet's safety and comfort.
Alright, now that Fido is nice, clean, pampered, and tuckered out from playing with all his mates, it's time to do some shopping! Mr Teddy Bear stocks a wide range of accessories, treats, grooming supplies and much more, including many local Brisbane small businesses. Shop local, support local, at Mr Teddy Bear! Brisbane-based brands include:
