I use Mobile Paws grooming regularly for my 2 cats. One of them is so sweet when she's not being groomed ☺️ However, she was tagged by other groomers as having aggression issues. I do not allow sedation for grooming so I couldn't find a groomer that would service her. Finally I found Michelle and Mobile Paws!! She does an amazing job grooming both of my cats and the convenience of not having to travel to have them groomed works perfect for my schedule and makes the cats less anxious. Her lion cuts are perfect!!! She also gives eat kitty a "report card" (so you're aware of their behavior during grooming) and a goody bag!! Michelle has also groomed my mother's dog and she enjoyed her services as well. I've been using this service since I moved to Crete 2 years ago and will continue to.

Grooming - "stripping" - Kim was friendly and knowledgeable about the type of grooming I was looking for my terrier. She explained the processes to me as this was my first time. She did a great job removing the nappies from my dog, and the home baked dog treats were a nice surprise! I will use her services again.

Denise and crew have been walking my dogs for over fifteen years now. I would never want to have anyone else. Whenever I have had something unforeseen come up, Four Paws has ALWAYS stepped up and helped me. They care about my dogs as if they were their own. Years ago when I first realized I needed dog walking services, I had an unfortunate experience with another company (they simply 'forgot to come'!) so it took some time for me to trust that Four Paws would not 'forget' us. I feel fortunate to have found them, and I am not kidding when I say I don't know what I would do without them.

Wild Paws is a wonderful service, providing training, boarding, and daycare and Joanne (Jo) is clearly a special trainer. Jo has been our sheltie-cockapoo-pumi mix trainer for several months and the two of them hit it off from the very beginning. Indeed, I have witnessed this for every dog I have seen interact with her. The emphasis of the training program is always on the well-being of the dog: protecting the dog from running away or eating something dangerous; keeping the dog mentally stimulated, and fostering a healthy relationship between the owners and the dog, especially for families with young children. The daycare is heavily supervised and highly secured. If you are not known, you are not getting in, and you are definitely not removing a dog. However, if you are known, you are welcomed with open arms. The facility is always clean and new dogs are added carefully to the existing mix to ensure that play is always satisfying (and exhausting!) for the dogs. Pictures of the dogs are shared every day. Dietary restrictions are enforced strictly. Treats are plentiful and varied. Puppies tend to leave learning new tricks. I have also used the boarding service. Pictures of the dogs playing are also shared every day. Boarded dogs spend significant portions of the day outside of their cage, unless they are stressed. The service emphasizes the well-being and happiness of the dog as well. There is a human being with the dogs 24/7. If you have a sensitivity to smoke scent, you will want to wash your dog afterward, but this is at most a minor inconvenience. Knowing that the dogs are safe, stimulated, and learning is what matters.

Excellent grooming. The owner and the groomer were very professional and kind. Haircut and nails look great and dog is happy. They added a bandanna around the neck loosely to give her some extra style. They have great availability and the best prices around. For dog grooming Park Pet Shop is a great place. Easy and free street parking, a lot of spots to park.

My dog adores Trisha! She's dependable and trustworthy. Trisha treats my dog like she's her own. I feel very comfortable leaving my dog in her care. My dog is scared of other dogs but Trisha calms her and I've even noticed less fear when I walk her now as well. I recommend Trisha without any reservations!

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
