I have only used Sarah once so far but will not hesitate to again. I moved into a new City and immediately needed to be out of town and have someone lined up to take care of my dog. It could not have been more chaotic with the move, a Holiday, and the last minute request and Sarah was incredibly accommodating for the whole experience. When I arrived home my dog was happy and clearly well taken care of. I will absolutely be calling her again in the future.

I am new to thumbtack and Nancy responded immediately to my search for a dog groomer! She was extremely flexible and was able to groom Molly at noon the very same day. The fact that she could come to my home was very convenient for me. Nancy did a fabulous job and was very thorough. I wouldn't hestitate to hire her again!

We worked with The Canine Company for one session of dog training. While they are great for obedience training they were not suited for our needs. We were specifically looking for someone who could help us acclimate our new dog to our cats that have been in our family for two years.

She is a true animal lover. My dog loved her. I am leaving my dog with her over Thanksgiving and know she will be totally cared for and probably spoiled a little!

Today I had the pleasure of experiencing a private training session with Erica in support of helping me with my rescued female Pitt-terrier named Daisy. From the moment I parked my truck Erica was already checking out my leash, collar and dogs condition like the true professional she is. As the weather was excellent and the training location was in a shady back yard conditions for training were perfect. As we walked to the yard I noticed that she kept her eye on my dog while discussing with me the agenda and goals for the training session. I carried a dog crate and a tether leash so that I could show her my dog's behavior. Of course my dog took to her instantly and there is something powerful going on for my dog to take to someone so fast. Erica took the time to relay to me that my dog was in good condition and that from a general health and nutrition perspective I was doing my job (what a relief). We set up the crate and Erica immediately set about demonstrating and explaining how to properly introduce a dog to the security of a crate. At the risk of writing a novel about my 45 minute private session . . . I want to convey simply this . . . I learned more from Erica in 45 minutes than I was able to do with days of Internet searching. I learned practical tools as well as dog psychology . . . Negatives? yes there is only one and it is minor but you should be aware . . . Erica has a voice that carries . . . if she was not such an excellent dog whisper she could sing in any opera and blow the doors off. I don't know how such a booming voice can come out of such a petite body but I think if I were a dog I would stop what mischief I was up too instantly upon hearing her assertive and thundering voice. I will definitely be scheduling more sessions with her and you should as well if you really want the very best value for your money.

Maria was on time, pleasant and polite. My dog is 13 yrs.old. She is blind and almost completely deaf. Maria treated my dog gently and was sensitive to her issues. I asked her to use the shampoo my Vet. recommended and Maria complied. I will use her services again in the future.

Meghann B is awesome! She was able to accommodate my family's particular scheduling needs and had NO PROBLEM (what so ever) handling my 10 lb Papillon's recent total CCL tear. Meghann was patient, gentle and considerate of Noori dog's needs and mine. She gave Noori the neat and short cut I needed (in order to properly prepare him for his upcoming orthopedic surgery and recovery), and made him look his rock star best too! We have already scheduled our next appointment with Meghann (in 8 weeks) and hope that Noori dog will be well on his way to a total return to his happy, Pappy life by then. Thank you Meghann for your TLC in our difficult time...XXOOXX P.S. Noori's lack of tail hair is NONE of Meghann's doing...it is part of the dog attack injury that caused his CCL tear...he had the most beautiful Papillon plume until one month ago today!

About

I am a caring pet owner of cats. Though I like dogs and most other types of pets except snakes and spiders. I posted a current pic, though I plan to put in a better one of myself alone as soon as possible. I like most animals: cats, dogs, birds, and small pets. I also like horses, and I'm an experienced horseback rider. I only know the basics of horse care. I have cared for horses at a horse camp, but I'm not an experienced horse caretaker. I have a cousin who owns an equestrian center. I hope to gain experience as I plan to visit and may inquire about working there also. I also like photography, computer games, swimming and more. I like the outdoors; therefore, I like to take walks. So I would be happy to care for and walk your dog or dogs. If there's more than one, I would like a higher wage. I'm looking for $15.00 an hour for now. I may consider lower depending on the services needed. I have helped save animals who were in need of help. I can inform you about that at a later time if interested. I have a pretty flexible schedule. So I may be able to work on certain days and in the afternoon and evening. I'm in the Wethersfield area and prefer the jobs I take on to be local, not further than one town away. I'm a responsible adult over 30. Please e-mail me if you can't reach me by phone. Thank you. -- Diana

About

I have always loved pets. In some ways, one of the hardest transitions for me was when I moved to college where I was embracing the fact that I wouldn't be able to see my critters each day. As such, I find great joy in caring for others' furry friends. For the past three years, I have served as the dog sitter for the President of Wesleyan University, and among many other professors. Let me add you to my client list this summer.

About

I will walk your dog and do landkeeping if you want. I will play with and give entertainment to your dog. I'm a free guy; I can't clean bedrooms.

About

I'll walk anyone's dog for a cheap and affordable price, no matter the size. I've been in dog shows since I was 12 years old, so I'm experienced with dogs of all shapes and sizes.

About

I don't really have a business, but I would like to have one, but I do have experience in walking big and small dogs.

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.
