Ana treated "Gracie" with kindness and exhibited very professional and tender loving care while giving "Gracie" her summer grooming. She bathed and trimmed "Gracie's" fur perfectly to our expectations. It is easy for me to recommend her service to other pet owners

Jeanne was the best house and dog sitter one could expect. She managed the care of our home with ease and most importantly she lovingly cared for our 4 dogs while we were away for 3 weeks. Her fee was very reasonable and we would enthusiastically recommend her services to anyone needing pet care short or long. thanks Jeanne 5 stars

This is the first time we tried mobile pet grooming and it will definitely not be our last. Lance was wonderful with our dogs and we couldn't be happier with the job he did. I highly recommend him for anyone in the market for a mobile pet grooming service.

She is very dependable, if we have to go somewhere, we can count on her to attempt to rearrange her schedule so that she can be here for us. She has always taken very good care of our pets and probably gives them more attention and affection than we do. She does the grooming whenever it is needed at very little additional cost and her prices are very reasonable!

Gerardo was a bit later than stated but he went right to work and seemed so caring with my 3 girls. He had to bath all, cut really long nails,on all three of them and then on two of them he had his work cut out to groom them. I have a Yorkie and a cairn mix. They all seemed less traumatized than when I load them up in the car and take them to the groomer. Not only did they look Fabulous, they were done in 2 and a half hours not like the 5 to 6 hours that it takes at my former groomers. Thank you so much Gerardo and Natural Pet Mobile. My girls looks and smell wonderful.

Bee came into my home and sat on the floor and let my cats come to her. Bee took notes on everything on how to care for my cats, especially the litter box. Bee also noted how to care for my outside plants, walked with me to the garbage bin to get rid of the kitty waist, then walked with me to the mail box. But the most important was Bee was able to give my one cat Merri her thyroid medication with no problem at all.

I've used Two Dogs Dancing for overnight stays at my home with my pack of very boisterous corgis, Pom and rat terrier and one horse. We have an older corgi with a brain tumor and are not comfortable leaving him unattended for extended periods of time. This summer we scheduled a 10 day over seas vacation. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that all our pets would be well care for. We received daily updates and pictures. All our pets were properly pampered while we were gone including our horse, who doesn't understand why I don't provide the yummy carrots like Mary does. Our dogs are over joyed when they see Mary and Brandy outside of pet sitting. Our home was clean and in great condition when we returned and we were pleasantly surprised by a plate of freshly baked cookies.

I first went to Woof & Fluff around 7-8 years ago. My older dog Angel never cared for groomers. She would behave for them but couldn't wait to leave. Her first time with Melody grooming her I had to drag her out. She was excited to see me but then turned around and went back and laid down. I have never gone to anyone else. I have been taking my little Chihuahua mix to her for around 4 years. He loves Melody and her standard poodle Ella. I also have to carry him out as he wants to stay and play with Ella. Is hard to find someone this good to take such good care of you pet. Melody is such a sweet loving person. I highly recommend her and always tag her on post's for people looking for a groomer. When you find the best why go somewhere else. Give her a try today and you won't regret it.

We left Valerie with our dog and two cats for 4 nights. Valerie was flexible and really listened to what was important to us as far as our needs for our little ones were concerned. She was respectful of our home and we knew that everything was in good hands. We would definitely hire Valerie again to pet sit while we're away!

I have all good things to say about Heather and her pet sitting business. She took excellent care of my two dogs and I would not hesitate to ask her to watch them again. Nice large fenced in grassed yard and a very clean facility. Very trustworthy with the care of your pets.

Julie from Precious Pet Care has been caring for our dogs for about 3 years now. She is excellent! Initially we had a single dog who was over the age of 10 and just couldn't go to a kennel without major stress for all concerned. Enter Julie. She helped care for our beloved little girl for both short and long periods of time. We would always return to find our sweet pup happy and well cared for and our home in immaculate condition. As our pup neared the end of her life she had some medical issues that required anyone caring for her to go above and beyond. Julie was there and treated her with love and compassion and our dog was never the least bit stressed while left in her care. After a 9 month period we now have 2 new "old" dogs that we adopted last year We immediately contacted Julie when we needed a sitter. She has been out to take care of them several times and these pups love her as well. She was here just last week and was greeted with big tail wags and wet kisses. Initially I was unsure about a total stranger in my home with our first dog who was first and foremost a family member. This was even after a lengthy phone conversation and a face to face interview! Julie arrived for the interview promptly with references in hand and quickly bonded with our dog. It's hard to believe now that I felt that way as I now think of her as an extended member of the family. She's responsible, dependable and caring, I can't give her a high enough review!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is included in a dog grooming?

Dog grooming is so much more than giving your dog a bath. Dog grooming is a broad term that covers all aspects of canine cleanliness and hygiene. The services included in dog grooming will vary based on your needs and what you choose to pay. Unless they are rolling in cowpies or playing in mud puddles, most dogs are okay getting a shampoo bath only as needed. You’ll know when they need it if they smell bad or are bringing dirt into the house. Some dogs, like shepherds and shih tzus, have thick coats that can get matted and tangled without regular care. Pro dog groomers can deftly blow dry a dog’s hair after a bath so that it is shiny and smooth. Dog grooming can include brushing that detangles dog hair and also thins the undercoat to minimize shedding.

Dog grooming also includes hygiene services such as toothbrushing and ear cleaning. Clean teeth are important to the health of your dog, and the pros have the patience and proper technique to get it done. Regular dog grooming can stave off tear stains, those reddish stains below your dog’s eyes. Anal gland expression is something not many people want to do on their own, even if they love their dog. A dog groomer can safely and efficiently release any blocked anal gland fluid. Other dog grooming services include nail trimming and clipping. Nationally, dog grooming prices range from $60 to $80. Most dog groomers offer discounts to customers who purchase monthly packages or bundle multiple grooming services at one time.

What does a dog walker do?

We all know our dogs love going on long, adventure-filled walks, but jobs and family and commuting can make it difficult to give them the leash time they deserve. You can hire a professional dog walker to make sure your furry friend gets adequate exercise and outdoor time each day. A professional dog walker may be an individual contractor or work for a dedicated dog-walking company. In either case, you want to make sure the pro has the appropriate insurance in case of an emergency. Some people opt to give the dog walker a key to their house; others to have them pick up the dog from the yard. Dog walking can happen as often as multiple times per day, or just a few times a month as needed. Here are some questions to ask when you are interviewing a new dog walker:  

  • Will you or someone else be walking my dog?
  • Do you have a backup plan if you can’t make it for a scheduled walk?
  • Will you walk my dog by itself, or do you walk several dogs at once?
  • What are your different walk routes?
  • When will you pick up and drop off?
  • How will we communicate?
  • Do I have to commit to a schedule or are you flexible?
  • What’s your cancellation policy?
  • What’s your response plan if my dog gets injured or becomes sick?
  • How and how often do I pay you?
  • Do you offer package pricing if I buy multiple dog walks up front?

What is a dog groomer?

A dog groomer is a service professional who provides dog grooming and basic hygiene care for your dog. Dog groomers are typically animal lovers who are competent and comfortable working with a wide range of dog breeds and temperaments. Dog groomers are knowledgeable about the care needs for different kinds of dog coats. A poodle will have different haircut needs than a shih tzu, for example, so it pays to have a trained pro provide the proper cut. Good dog groomers know how to safely clean your dog’s teeth, bathe your dog, and cut their nails without going too short. They understand how to trim the hair from around your dog’s face, express anal glands, and clean your dog’s ears. Many people who choose dog grooming as a profession also pursue other dog services such as attending veterinary school, running a doggy day care center, working as a professional dog walker, and more.

What is a dog groomer?

Keep your family dogs happy, healthy and clean with regular dog grooming. A dog groomer is a business owner or employee of a dog grooming business who specializes in dog hygiene and grooming. To find a reputable dog groomer, research reviews, ask for references and confirm that the groomer has good standing in the dog grooming community.

A dog groomer should be comfortable and competent working with dogs of all breeds and temperaments. Typically a groomer will have trained with other groomers and taken educational courses to keep abreast of the latest safety information and techniques. There are brick-and-mortar dog grooming businesses, as well as mobile dog groomers who bring all their equipment and provide their services at your home or location. In some cases, brick-and-mortar businesses will also pick up and return your dog for an additional fee.

What vaccines do dogs need to be groomed?

It’s important to make sure your dog is up to date on its vaccines before taking it to a groomer. Vaccinations keep your dog and the other dogs that use the establishment healthy. Viruses can linger long after a dog is gone, so an unvaccinated dog can infect a number of other dogs days or even months after their visit. Find out about your dog groomer’s vaccination policies, and think carefully about receiving services from a company that does not require vaccinations. Here are the main vaccinations that are generally required for dog grooming:

  • Parvovirus: Parvo is a nasty virus that can kill dogs within 48-72 hours of infection. The virus is incredibly persistent and, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, is resistant to heat, cold, humidity and drying. It’s spread by dog-to-dog contact or contact with contaminated feces, environments (food and water bowls, collars and leashes, etc.,) or people.
  • Adenovirus 2: Dogs receive this vaccination to protect against canine infectious hepatitis. The vaccination can also helps prevent canine cough.
  • Canine distemper virus: Distemper has no known cure and can cause serious pain, illness, and even death, although recovery is possible with medical intervention.  
  • Rabies: This disease attacks the central nervous system and — when untreated — will
  • lead to death. The CDC recommends euthanizing an unvaccinated animal that has been exposed to rabies, although six-month isolation followed by vaccination is also permissible.
  • Para-influenza: Canine para-influenza leads to kennel cough and an unhappy dog.
