Jack was the best groomer by far I've ever taken my dog too. My dog is very afraid of grooming and Jack put him at ease. He really made it a positive experience for my dog. He also trimmed my bunny's nails, and he was able to put my bunny at ease as well. The other ladies who were there were also very nice, and they have a lot of good dog products.

Amanda took very good care of my dog doodle. She even took less time to do a full groom than places I have taken him just to do a “mini groom”. Before I left she informed me of her awesome rates for doggy day care. Doodle will definitely be back!

We needed a dog walker while we were gone. Maeve from Aunty Ashley's came and did a wonderful job. She took pictures every day and the dogs loved her and enjoyed their walks. Enjoyable experience for all. We will use them again!!

Kimberly Robinson did an excellent job with my dog. She was very patient with her which is what I was looking forward to because she is a puppy. She treated my dog like she was her own. I loved having her. I would definitely recommend her to someone else.

Lance Animal Hospital

    Our family has used Dr. Lance and her staff for probably two years or more for our dogs, cats, iguana and pet rats. They have been caring and work very hard to figure out exactly what the problem is especially with my exotic pets which can be a challenge. Denise has even offered to come and pick up my pet when I was unable to because of health issues (we live close by). I love Dr. Lance, Dr. Laura, Davorin, Denise, Jen, and the other's I've worked with there. They really do feel like family!

      Carey is fantastic! She is dependable, flexible, and great with the dogs. I am so thankful we found her! Now that she has been helping with the dogs for a few months, I don't remember what we did without her!


      Let us provide your pet with a day filled with lots of play time, quiet time, and one-on-one care, belly rubs included! It's a great way for your pet to get needed socialization and exercise.

      Cause I always try hard and my best at what I do and I love to keep my service and boss happy.


      I was a former military dog trainer with 30 years of experience. I was a police dog trainer. I service dog trainers for pets and kid with disabilities.


      I have been training dogs and their owners for 40 years. My methods work very well, and I have excellent references.


      My name is Naszier Stover. I love dogs. I have two of my own. What made me join this website is just to help everyone out as best as I can be. I will try my best to train you guys and your dogs. I can come at any time.


      I love dogs, and I truly connect with them. Dogs have just been my favorite animal growing up, and I the ability to stay with them and care for them would be amazing. I'm also only able to work three times a week.


      I'm a dog lover. Whatever is needed to be done for your dog, believe it will be done at a 100% satisfaction.


      I do teach puppies and older dogs not to jump unless commanded by their owners. I do use dog treats to keep the dog's attention span. I don't spray dogs with water because that will turn them to being aggressive. I am very patient with the animals.


      I have a four-month old German Shepherd, and I will treat your dog with love and care. I will train it, bath it, walk it, and even play with it.


      Let me take your dog for a walk, feed him, and do whatever you need; I will be there on the spot. I am pet friendly. Recently, I retired and am willing to be there when you need me.

      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.
