Prissy’s Pretty Pets mobile grooming did a great job grooming our rescue girl Lulu. Lulu wasn’t easy to groom, but was handled with love and care. Thank you! We have scheduled for next month.

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.

This was the first time I have used a mobile groomer. I request her services for my son's dogs because he has not been able to groom them himself because of his fight with cancer. Winnie's Wagon Mobile Spa was wonderful! Both dogs loved her and were so happy being pampered!

I have a very anxious Chihuahua that is difficult to work with. Kelly took the time to help him calm down and get used to her. She is very patient and kind, giving me tips on how to help him get better with her. All she did for him this time was cut his nails which is why I needed her, he needs to get used to her. She also groomed my other Chihuahua, who is now so beautiful. I would definitely recommend Kelly to anyone who has a special needs puppy.

LOVE this company! I've never had a dog walker before, so I wasn't really sure what to expect. I was pleased to find out that Thor loves Megan, his new dog walker. Seeing as my work hours aren't getting any shorter, I'm happy I can trust Dogma to give me some peace of mind that Thor will be happy when I get home.

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!

About

The services I offer are as follows: * Dog walking * Gardening: cleanup, trimming, transplanting, etc. * Assembly of indoor/outdoor furniture, children's toys and garden items * Small concrete jobs, from simple to difficult repairs in house and outdoors * Furniture assembly I am a home owner who have done most all of his own repairs, installations and plumbing, so I know what challenges you might have or project you'd like to do. I can help you finish those jobs. Right now, I'm between jobs, but if doing this kind of part-time work (helps me and you), I wouldn't mind making it take care of the rest of my career. I'd like to stay close to my area but may consider areas further out, so give me a try. Thanks for your consideration. Have a great day!

I'm not a big shop. That's best for your pup. I am a mobile or shop groomer. I offer tender touch grooming. Come to us, or I'll come to you. We are a small shop. We schedule our days, so your furry friend won't be here all day. We offer either just a bath or a full-service bath and cut. I have a standard groom, and don't have added charges for the right shampoo or good brushing. Give us a call to schedule today.

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?

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

How much do you tip the dog groomer?

Do you have a dog that you get groomed regularly? If you do, you’ve probably wondered how much — or even if — you’re supposed to tip your dog groomer. Treat your dog groomer as you would your own hair stylist. A 15 percent to 20 percent tip is an appropriate amount to show your appreciation for a dog grooming job well done. If your dog didn’t get clean or their nails didn’t get properly clipped, then you certainly don’t have to tip. But if you’re satisfied with the service, consider the tip part of the standard dog grooming price, and just plan it into your dog care budget so you’ll have a happy groomer and a well-groomed dog. Here are a few examples of when you should tip extra:

  • Your dog bit the groomer! Not good. A big tip will help.
  • Your pooch barked like a wild beast or wrestled the groomer the entire time.
  • Your dog’s hair was extra gross and dirty — think dog poo or major mud matted in their hindquarters.
  • Your senior or disabled dog can’t stand on their own and needs extra care and support.
