It’s so nice to have things done while I can work on my own things. Angela did a great job grooming my dog. She was great at handling her while she wasn’t the most friendly dog. Thank you!

Our dog was skunked and I was desperately looking for someone to come to our house to wash her. I was so happy to have our groomer that we have gone to for 3 generations of dogs answer my add! She is wonderful and does beautiful dog cuts. She answered very quickly and offered to pick up the dog, take her to the dog park so she was calm enough to be groomed (she's a pup still) and take her to the shop. All for a very reasonable price. So happy!

We hired Beth a few months ago to take our dogs on walks as we needed her services. Due to my recent fractured ankle, we have used Beth's dog walking and pet sitting services for 5-6 days per week. Beth is reliable, conscientious and punctual. She is very loving towards our two dogs as well as our cat. We trust her in our home when we are not home. We are very fortunate to have Beth's services and we wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is considering hiring her. You will rest at ease knowing your pets are well cared for when you are not home.

Lisa was absolute life saver on a crazy day! My Springer had not been groomed for awhile, he was traumatized at one of those Pet** places. Having a mobile service resolved travel, hours in a kennel and scheduling problems. Lisa asked all the right questions and transformed my dog back to his former glory. I plan on using her again!!

About

Nob Hill Dog Walker caters to one dog at a time. I am a long-term resident of Nob Hill who is mature, responsible, and of course a dog lover and available to walk your dog, one at a time. I am available for one- to two-hour walks on my usual daily walking routes. These include the quieter residential streets of Nob and Telegraph Hills, North Beach, Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights and Russian Hill. This is perfect for a dog that needs exercise and likes climbing hills and moving. For a small or older dog, arrangements can be made. Dogs must be well-behaved, leash trained, and not in need of being around other dogs. No pit bulls (though I love them dearly) or dogs with snapping problems. I'm sorry. If your dog exhibits stellar behavior on the leash, trips to the Presidio or Land's End by car are possible for no extra charge. To introduce your dog, let's meet at Huntington Park on Nob Hill and go for a test walk together to see how your pooch does. If everything checks out, you can simply call me the next time your dog needs walking. I'll pick him or her up in front of your building and return him or her at the designated time. Daily, weekly or intermittent times are available. Weekends are included. I charge $20 per hour. I am insured through Pet Sitters Associates.

About

I can clean houses, do yard work, and dog walking. I am great with animals and children. I am self-motivated and detail-oriented.

About

We offer canine ambulation (dog walking services); however, we are not limited to just that. If you are out of town and need someone to stop by to feed and walk your pet or to sit them, this can be arranged. We treat each situation as unique as they are and will work out specific details and agreements with each customer.

About

I am an experienced pet sitter and dog walker/trainer offering affordable services around Danville, Walnut Creek and San Ramon. I would love to walk your dog or play with your cat, while you're working during the day or out of town. I offer daily walks, feeding, changing water bowls or litter boxes and affection, and I am very experienced at giving medications. I also teach your dog some really cool tricks, potty training if you need help with that, or also better leash manners, all while we have fun! Previous clientele have been very satisfied with my services. I can also manage special needs of animals (geriatric, ill or aggressive), as I was a veterinary assistant at a high-volume veterinary hospital for over 3 years. My other qualifications include time at The Humane Society, A Dog's Life doggie daycare, and I am a college graduate. I am also capable of training dogs out of common household issues if you (the owner) are willing to put in some effort with me! We offer reasonable rates. References are available upon request. My wonderful yelp is on my website. Call or email me for more information. Ashley Fraser

About

I not only love working with animals, but I also have a passion for understanding their behaviors, and looking at each animal on an individual basis. I believe in positive reinforcement to both correct existing problem behaviors and mold new wanted behaviors.

About

I provide training (obedience, housebreaking, and socialization), grooming (bathing, nail clipping, and haircuts), and maintenance (walking, house-sitting, and overnight staying), all at an affordable and adjustable rate. Every situation is different. I'm just looking forward to meeting you and your companions!

About

I am a new dog walker. I started with my brother's dog, walking him around, so that way, he wasn't cooped up in the backyard. So now, I want to walk other dogs that want to go walk around and no longer be sheltered in the backyard.

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.

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

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.
