Kevin is very knowledgable about dog grooming. He takes his time with the dog. My dog Holly is a senior so she needed extra help and Kevin did very well with her. Holly looks great. Thanks Kevin for a job well done. K. St. Jean

In all my years of owning dogs I have never met a better trainer than Robert Weatherwax. His approach to my dog was so friendly and kind that they bonded in just a few minutes. Sadie (our dog) was VERY receptive to learning how to sit,stay and walking properly when given the correct commands. Robert uses a chain collar and small treats to get her to do the correct things. I was against the collar until I saw he used it gently and Sadie wasn't afraid. Now she loves our walks with the collar and actually gets in her spot (another command) so I can put it on her. Don't get me wrong. SADIE still needs work on MY part but Robert has been nice enough to have some refresher classes mainly for me. I was lucky that a friend recommended Robert to me.

The people who came to groom my dog was amazing. Got there early and finished earlier then we thought. She was so sweet with my Lucy, as she has high anxiety so she needs extra love. Lucy was so clean and fresh. Will use the company again for sure.

This was GiGi’s first formal grooming experience. She’s a 3 year old rescue pup who has had nail trimmings only at her Vet since we adopted her. She also had an aversion to water, plus will not climb stairs to our bathtub, therefore only had patio baths during the warmer months. I did not realize what she was missing out on until she had the Rebel Dog Grooming experience. Ace was such a tender handler. He made her feel like she could trust him within minutes. She was a nervous puppy, however warmed up and let him take care of her teeth, nails, ears and incredible spa like bath. She ran into the house with so much excitement and a huge grin. She smelled incredible; she looked so shiny. I could not recommend this company enough. Ace was accommodating to my schedule, he was incredibly affordable and he did an outstanding job on GiGi. We will be regular devoted clients from now on.

I'm so glad I hired Pacific Grooming mobile. Since it was my kitty's first grooming I wanted to be relaxing, and Sandy made it possible. When I went to pick my cat from the van it seem so relaxed and clean. Sandy also took the time to email me some tips in how to keep my cat and apt. flea free. It was so nice to have my pet's grooming done right outside my home, one on one. I loved the experience and will definitely hire Pacific Grooming Pet Salon again.....:)

Bo went in pulling on the leash and crazy excited when he saw another dog. One hour later he walked out calmly and was completely unphased by other dogs he saw. I've got to keep it up, but Paul got me and Bo back on track!

Laryssa has watched my dog on several occasions. Laryssa is always very professional and very acomidating. Every time I drop my dog off at her place, he gets excited to see her. Laryssa keeps me updated throughout my trips with cute photos and videos. I feel 100% at ease that my four legged baby is in the best care possible when I'm away. I highly recommend Laryssa!!

About

Whether you are looking for the best bath in town or the perfect clip, Manny is the one! Manny started as the apprentice to our previous, quite-popular groomer, Amanda in 2001. Manny repeatedly showed his talent as a groomer, and in 2005, when Amanda moved on from our employ, Manny attended the Wag My Tail Grooming School and graduated at the top of his class, and they wanted to keep him. Manny has trained several of our competent, conscientious grooming assistants to provide us with the ability to have excellent staffing 6 days a week. The grooming shop at Hollywood Dog Training School can be quite popular, so book your grooming in advance. In most cases, when dogs come in for grooming, we ask that they arrive between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m., and they will spend some of the day with us until the go-home time that you arranged with us. Unlike the average grooming shop, dogs do not spend their whole time in a small cage or crate. We have dog runs dedicated for our grooming shop so that you your dogs can stretch their legs, have a place to eliminate, and get a drink of water. All of the baths we do here at Hollywood Dog Training School include a nail trim, cleaning the ears, and a full brush out. Our modern, state-of-the-art equipment allows us to do an unparalleled job; you won't believe the difference. We feature the HydroSurge bathing system for an amazing clean. We use a low=sodium, soap-free, sulfate-free, and no-perfume shampoo that leaves almost all pets itch free. Mighty wind dryers reduce brushing time drastically and make the brush out superior to doing the job with a brush alone. Most pets are finished with a light pet cologne that most clients love.

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 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.

How much does it cost to groom a dog?

Dog grooming costs depend on the service your pet requires. Nationally, the average price for dog grooming ranges from $40 to $100, varying by location. Not surprisingly, dog grooming on New York’s Upper East Side costs nearly double what it costs in a small town in Montana. Dog groomers typically handle every aspect of your dog’s beauty and hygiene, from tooth brushing to hairstyling. One potential way to save is to have your dog groomed at your doggy daycare — sometimes they offer discounts on dog grooming prices for clients. Here are some examples of average dog grooming costs in the San Francisco Bay Area. Please note these prices would include transportation fees for picking up and dropping off your dog to your home:

  • Nails: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
  • Toothbrushing: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
  • Tooth scraping (removal of plaque from teeth to prevent infection), with anesthesia: $600
  • Tooth scraping, without anesthesia: $400.
  • Wash and dry: $60
  • Ears: $30 a la carte or $20 when bundled with another service
  • Grooming package: $130 — includes wash, nails, teeth, ears, gland expression and haircut
