I have a Labradoodle and two cats. Sarah has groomed my dog and cut my cats' nails for about the past 21/2 years. She has done an outstanding job. Prior to using Sarah, my dog was very agitated when I brought her to be groomed and was extremely upset when I would pick her up. Additionally, I was never very happy with how the dog looked. In contrast, my dog is always thrilled to see Sarah and is calm and happy when I pick her up. She also looks fabulous. Since Sarah has been grooming my dog, people have stopped me on the street to comment on how beautiful my dog is! Sarah is equally professional and gentle with my cats. It is very obvious that Sarah is a very talented groomer. Most importantly however, is that she clearly is an animal lover and advocate. She genuinely enjoys her time with each pet and "sees" them. She does not rush her work. I enthusiastically recommended Sarah.

We had a wonderful experience. Our dog is 13 and ailing. He would not allow anyone to touch him. Our groomer approached Seth very calmly, spending a lot of time gaining his trust. We were impressed and grateful. Highly recommend!

I have a Labradoodle and two cats. Sarah's grooming of the dog has been a showstopper. People often stop us on the street to admire the dog. Sarah is the consummate perfectionist. She never cuts corners and is very attentive to your wishes. On top of that, she is absolutely wonderful with the animals. She is truly an animal lover and advocate. My dog loves to see her and is always in a good mood after being groomed. This has definitely not been the case with other groomers. Sarah does a wonderful job trimming my cats' nails, as well. I highly recommend Sarah.

Katie recently groomed our very timid Sheltie and did an amazing job. Her mobile service provided a calm atmosphere that we needed for our dog. Our dog is a rescue and has a lot of anxiety, so traditional pet spas with a lot of other animals are often traumatic for her.

Took in Noodle after she had been tossed from place to place. She was in pretty bad shape. Vanessa took her time and worked with Noodle to be able to get the matts out. She looks like a new dog. Will definitely have Vanessa groom her again.

About

This is a new business venture for me. I retired in 1999 from the civil service and moved to Pensacola, FL. I've moved back home to be near my family. I'm an active 65 year old retiree with nothing else to do, but pamper my doggies and yours. I've always dreamed of having a job that didn't feel like a job; doing something that I love. I've finally found it. You will find many walkers with great credentials, but you will not find anyone more caring, loving, and responsible for your pet.

Katrina did a fantastic job taking care of Itchy, my cat, while I was away for more than two weeks. I received regular updates of what Itchy was up to every day, and was assured he was well taken care of. (Very helpful for an anxious person such as myself!) It was lovely to come home to a happy kitty and all cat-related tasks done as requested. Highly recommended!

    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.
