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 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 to pursue Hannes’ dream of opening a doggy parlour. After a friend offered to design a logo and a 7-week dog grooming course… ULTIMATE PET CARE was born.

– Hannes & Petru-Marti Roodt

Today, we are celebrating the growth with our three kids – Nayomi, Johannes & Benjamin – Travelling all over South Africa, establishing the brand!

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

Ultimate Pet Care 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 fibreglass trailer. The business has grown into the fastest-growing Mobile Parlour Business in the WORLD that sold the first Ultimate Pet Care Franchise in 2017 – UPC Boksburg. Today, the vision is to add more locations and trailers to the Network every month. 2023 we are celebrating our 47 Franchises on the road in 8 Provinces all over South Africa. Giving Job opportunities to over 150 employees.

The vision to bring the best care to man’s best friend definitely 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 include washing and grooming pets, pet sitting and dog walking. They are now also connected with a dog behaviourist 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 not have been possible without you guys.

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

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