She did amazing work on my dog Papa. His fur was growing wild, so had a lot of knots in his hair, but she got all of them out!! He also smelled real good for a week. He came back happy and with a cute little red bow tie. If you need a groomer, she's the one.

I had a meet & greet with Sonia yesterday; she brought her "pack" of dogs to meet my dog, who is sometimes aggressive toward other dogs. Sonia really seems to know her stuff, and gave me great advice on dealing with my dog!! And he behaved pretty well around all her dogs, thanks to her coaching! I was impressed!

Christina was great with my dog. They went on an hour walk and he came home and was ready for a nap. She made him a friend for life with treats. She will be coming back again this week.

Phoebe has been an absolute joy to work with. She takes our dog out usually twice a week for some play/adventure time. She proactively finds new places to take him especially if the parks don’t many dogs for him to play with. I get picture updates every time she takes him out, she's captured some great shots of him in action. Phoebe has been extremely trust worthy. I know that our boy is in good hands. There was an unfortunate situation at a dog park, where another dog was being aggressive toward our dog, she kept him safe and took him away from that surrounding. She even bought him treats and a toy, she’s extremely thoughtful! She is also very knowledgeable about dogs in general and training methods. I’d be happy to discuss my experience with Phoebe to any potential clients.

Iʻve been delighted with the service that Isabel and her Surf Dogs company have provided me and my dog Ressie for the last couple of years. Isabel is flexible, always accommodating last-minute changes in my schedule. Sheʻs also great for overnights or long-term boarding--Ressie always comes home a happy little dog, whether sheʻs been on a several-hour walk or an overnight stay. She enjoys all her pals--human and canine--at Surf Dogs. And so do I!

We had her come over and walk our dog while we were out of town for a week. She not only walked our dog, but gave her loving attention that she needed. We are very appreciative for everything she has done for us. Will definitely seek out her services again!

About

I am from Brazil, and I speak Spanish, English and Portuguese. I live with my daughter, and I am available to work anytime from now. Please contact me for any help with the housecleaning, caregiving, dog sitting, cooking or house sitting opportunities. Thank you, and I am looking forward to hearing from you.

About

I am a professional dog walker with over 30 years of experience. I've owned over 10 dogs during my lifetime and have gained great experience on walking, training and caring for them. I have super accessible rates for the busy executives that want to make sure their babies will be in safe, trustworthy and knowledgeable hands and not some inexperienced kid that would probably let go of the leash in a moment of panic or distraction.

About

Well, hello there! I am a home- and travel-based dog and pet sitter. I would say I am beyond qualified for your furry family member, and whatever services he or she needs, let it be sitting, walking or even grooming, I am definitely the caring, respecting and trustworthy person you can rely on and relax, knowing your loved ones are in good hands.

About

I have experience staying with dogs overnight and being responsible for full animal care. I have taken care of animals for my family while they were on vacation and neighbors as well. My customers are always fully satisfied.

About

I provide a positive-oriented approach to training and socializing, only using discipline when absolutely necessary. I won't train your dog's personality out of them. Each dog has a different personality and, therefore, needs different treatment in everything, from a daily walk to training. My experience is mostly with high-energy medium/large hunting breeds (i.e., Vizslas, Weimers, GSPs), but dogs of all shapes, sizes, and ages are available. References will gladly be provided upon request.

About

My company is small and I want to keep it this way. I always get attached to the dogs I take care. We are a big family.

About

I do dog walking. I hope its good because this is my first time walking someone else's dog.

About

I walk dogs on a park to exercise them and to take care of them.

About

I have two wonderful dogs at the moment (beagles), but I would like to earn some extra money besides the money I earn from doing chores. I am comfortable walking and taking care of all dogs, but I preferred those who are potty and/or crate trained. I am in high school, but I am a great caretaker. I love walking and playing with dogs, and I will even groom your dog! I love all kinds of dogs, so I will take care any kind. Contact me if you're interested. I have walked and taken cared of dogs around my neighborhood, so I have tons of practice.

About

I can and have walked dogs professionally. Walking is great for everyone. I have also been a foster parent for many animals, including Katrina dogs, cats and horses.

About

I go on dog walks all over San Fransico park. I take good care of dogs and make sure all the dogs are nice and fed, and I do much more.

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.
