In all my years of owning dogs I have never met a better trainer than Robert Weatherwax. His approach to my dog was so friendly and kind that they bonded in just a few minutes. Sadie (our dog) was VERY receptive to learning how to sit,stay and walking properly when given the correct commands. Robert uses a chain collar and small treats to get her to do the correct things. I was against the collar until I saw he used it gently and Sadie wasn't afraid. Now she loves our walks with the collar and actually gets in her spot (another command) so I can put it on her. Don't get me wrong. SADIE still needs work on MY part but Robert has been nice enough to have some refresher classes mainly for me. I was lucky that a friend recommended Robert to me.

This was GiGi’s first formal grooming experience. She’s a 3 year old rescue pup who has had nail trimmings only at her Vet since we adopted her. She also had an aversion to water, plus will not climb stairs to our bathtub, therefore only had patio baths during the warmer months. I did not realize what she was missing out on until she had the Rebel Dog Grooming experience. Ace was such a tender handler. He made her feel like she could trust him within minutes. She was a nervous puppy, however warmed up and let him take care of her teeth, nails, ears and incredible spa like bath. She ran into the house with so much excitement and a huge grin. She smelled incredible; she looked so shiny. I could not recommend this company enough. Ace was accommodating to my schedule, he was incredibly affordable and he did an outstanding job on GiGi. We will be regular devoted clients from now on.

The people who came to groom my dog was amazing. Got there early and finished earlier then we thought. She was so sweet with my Lucy, as she has high anxiety so she needs extra love. Lucy was so clean and fresh. Will use the company again for sure.

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

I am a dog walker who has been in this business for over a decade. I am a huge animal lover, especially dogs! Dogs sense that I care and am a kind person. Dogs can read people very well. So, it's important to have someone walk your dog — someone whom not only you're comfortable with, but is also whom your dog is comfortable with! I am responsible and a non smoker. I take your dog for an hour-long walk, which includes not only a walk but also time playing with your dog. I also come to where your dog is best happy and comfortable, their very own turf! I come to your house, so that you don't have the hassle of dropping your dog off and picking him or her up.

About

I shower, brush, dry, cut the nails, walk them, feed, play, cut the hair if asked, and pick up waste. I'll love and care for them.

We handle all our customers with care and are accurate with our work. We take pride in our work.

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.
