    Charlotte and Pete are two of the most beautiful people. They showed two of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and their experience with grooming is the best! I wouldn't go anywhere else to have a dog groomed because of their experience with all breeds and their knowledge of coat types, textures and what products work best for each. You're the best!!

      I worked with Karrie at Perfect Paws and I have never seen such amazing progress in my shiba inu! As a puppy, you want to think you are doing everything you can to keep as many "bad habits" at bay, but there is always something that rears its ugly head. I have had other trainers I've worked with before, but Karrie really understands what it means to be a behavioralist. I went from having a over-anxious and chew up my carpets dog to having a perfectly tempered dog who has never chewed on the carpets again! She helped me not only understand the length at which my behavior affects my dog, but also helped me truly understand the needs of dogs. There is a HUGE difference between dog and human psychology. Her approach may be direct and something you are definitely not used to, but give her a chance and she will prove to you in less than 15 minutes that she can change your dog's life and your's!! Thank you Karrie! I don't know what I would have done without you :)

        We've used Maria a number of times, everything from stop ins for feedings, walks and potty breaks to overnight stays. We have 3 dogs (1 diabetic) and 2 cats, so having a qualified, dependable pet sitter is extremely important to us. Maria is always patient and caring. Her years of experience and background as a Veterinary Assistant is very beneficial. And she sends pictures of our furbabies...bonus!

        It was just how I wanted her! Her length was good and her ears looked amazing. I have a long haired chihuahua and she looked awesome. She smelled good and her eye stains were all but gone! She looked like a new dog and she was definitely a lot happier! The last groomer I had my dog didn't like to go at all. But this time she was happy happy happy! Thank you so much Christine! You did an amazing job! I will definitely book you in the future!

          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.
