Our Story

Purpose, persistence and a burning desire birthed Ultimate Pet Care.

We are a young South African couple that started this mobile grooming service out of our love for animals, especially for dogs. The business has since branched out to other regions in South Africa. We are groomers ourselves and have a true passion for animals.

How it all started…

In 2012 after returning from a life-changing outreach, husband and wife Hannes and Petru-Marti, then best friends, decided they are going to pursue Hannes’ dream of opening a doggy parlour. After a friend offering to design a logo and a 7 week dog grooming course… ULTİMATE PET CARE was born.

Today they are celebrating the growth with their 3 kids – Nayomi, Johannes & Benjamin. Traveling all over South Africa, establishing the brand!

When looking at how Ultimate Pet Care has grown… this story truly is one of humble beginnings. With little equipment they started going to people’s houses washing and grooming their dogs in their backyards.

Ultimate Pet Care was officially launched on 1 September 2012 with a dog fashion show at the well known Serengeti Golf Estate in Kempton Park, South Africa.

Many things have changed since then. The steel trailer became a tailer made fibre glass trailer, the business has grown into the fastest growing Mobile Parlour Businesses in the WORLD that sold the first Ultimate Pet Care Franchise in 2017 – UPC Boksburg. Today the vision is adding more locations and trailers to the Network every month. 2021 we are celebrating our 80th Franchise on the road, in 8 Provinces all over South Africa. Giving Job opportunities to over 250 employees.

The vision to bring the best care to man’s best friend certainly has not changed. The Ultimate Pet Care team goes out of their way to make sure your furry friends are happy and taken care of in the comfort of your own home.

Ultimate Pet Care services includes washing and grooming of pets, vet transport services, pet sitting and dog walking. They are now also connected with a dog behaviorist who helps with training dogs.

This is only the beginning of a great vision of 333 UPC Trailers, creating 1000 Job opportunities, Ultimate Pet Care World, Ultimate Pet, Ultimate Pet Care Animal Support Community, Ultimate Pet Care Grooming School, Ultimate the Cafe and much more…

Thank you to our loyal clients, Head Office, Franchisees, Groomers, Drivers & Managers.
This vision would have not been possible without you guys.

We give Honour & Glory to our Lord Jesus for this amazing vision.

Be blessed, be inspired, be motivated by the UPC Story.

– Hannes & Petru-Marti, Founders of Ultimate Pet Care
