DeeCee was great! She came to me in Malibu and worked with my puppy, Milo, for 90 minutes. She taught me how to be more firm but also incredibly loving with my puppy and how to prepare him for service dog training. She affirmed what I did right and corrected what I did wrong and did an altogether great job. Milo loved her too! Would recommend! Many thanks from us!

This is my first time needing a mobile dog groomer. I was naturally hesitant to invite someone to my home to groom my 15 year old furry companion, Frankie. My dog has special needs now that he's older. He has too much anxiety when I've taken him to the groomer and my regular groomer and vet suggested a mobile option. I used this application to see what my options would be on a Saturday, my only day off of work. What a fabulous opportunity to find someone like Ace the owner and certified pet hygienist and groomer. He arrived within 90 minutes from my first inquiry. I explained I needed my doggie groomed today. He arrived and was extremely kind, gentle and I was immediately calm as he helped assure me that my doggie was going to be taken care of. He clearly explained the services he provides. He was so gentle and experienced working with dogs like mine who have unique needs to keep them and trusting of the process. I think the before and after pictures speak to the quality of his work. My Frankie was transformed and looks great. After the initial hair trim was over he allowed me to come in to his grooming area, in his clean doggie salon. Frankie looked like he had been transformed. It's a a glamour makeover. Frankie was calm and did not seem anxious. My family all had the opportunity to speak to Ace and he was very patient with my older father. Like a member of our family now. I'm thrilled to have a new mobile groomer and am now working with Rebel for my doggies grooming needs moving forward. Highly recommend those who are in need of high quality care and just a great man like Ace. Additionally, his cost was well within reason and worth every penny.

Mobile Pet Spa came up as a result in a search on thumbtack in my zip code. They called me up immediately to notify me they don't service my area when they could have just ignored my inquiry so props to them for taking the time on a non-sale. They were professional and courteous on the phone and based on that I'd prob say they'd be worth checking out if you're in the area they service (farthest South is Venice). Seems like they'd be a good service to work with.

I love Robin! She does an amazing job with my pets. I have several dogs and cats (seniors and special needs animals) and I NEVER worry about them while I am away. Robin does a fantastic job taking care of everyone and my house while I'm gone. And as an added bonus she takes the most amazing pictures of your pets and sends daily updates! I would highly recommend Robin as a great pet sitter!

Maureen was very responsive to texts/calls/emails. She made sure to address the individual needs of my family/pet. She packed in so much information into just one session and provided us with some unexpected extras. We have already seen an improvement in our puppy's behavior after one session. I love her positive approach to modifying behavior. She was also super patient with us (first time dog parents). We had some very basic questions but she spent extra time with us to make sure we were set before she left. Will definitely use her again and refer friends in need of doggy help.

I highly recommend Wendy's pet services!! My dog and I took an dog training course from Wendy and she is a very effective dog trainer. All her methods were easy to learn and made sense! We also board our dog with Wendy when we go on vacation. Our dog gets the same love, attention and exercise that we give her at home when she stays with Wendy!

I am so thankful to have found Maddi and Glitterati Pet Spa. Our dog is almost 15 years old and the last visit to his previous groomer had declared he was unable to groom him. I told Maddi of this and she stepped up to the plate and hit a home run with our beloved dog. Thank you Thumbtack once again for connecting me with a professional! I highly recommend Glitterati Pet Spa!

What a fantastic pet sitter! She was so easy to communicate and plan with and was always punctual with meetings. She went above and beyond spending lots of time with my cats and telling me all sorts of stories about how they were. She went as far as to clean up after my cat who was telling us off by pooping on the carpet. I will absolutely call her whenever I need a pet sitter again and be confident and comfortable that my cats will be taken care of.

Trent is nothing short of an ideal partner in our pet care. We instantly felt comfortable with him upon first meeting and it is beyond clear that our puppy is benefitting from his care. He takes great care of the dog, our house and our peace of mind. Trent keeps us up to date on when he's with our pup and when he leaves. He's extremely flexible and reliable. We cannot recommend Trent highly enough for your pet needs!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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?

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 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.

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
