I usually have a problem when my dog gets groomed. He is 15 and does not like to go to the groomer. Today I brought him to Lucky Dog Spa, and he was a "lucky" dog. Sue, his groomer, let me wait while she groomed him. This way he didn't have to be caged. He gets very nervous being caged, probably cause we never crate him. He was groomed beautifully. When Sue brought him out to me, I was thrilled. My dog was clean, calm, and happy!!! He was in no hurry to leave.Sue is very sweet to have made provisions for my pup!! I appreciate it more than the knows, I'm sure. Thank you Lucky Dog for listening to me, helping us out, and being so kind. See you again...You do great work!Joyce

Audrey cared for our three cats while we were away for a week and did an amazing job! She took great care of them, gave us lots of updates and took the time to do extra things like bring out our bins on garbage day and wash out their bowls regularly. She does so much for such a reasonable price! What a great value! She is a true animal lover and so kind and trustworthy, we felt very comfortable with her in the house while we were away. We are very picky about our pets care and get very anxious leaving them alone, but Audrey took great care of them and we will definitely hire her again! Outstanding!!

Karen is wonderful with my dog! Usually after the initial meet & greet I prefer to be at the first few visits until I know my dog and the pet sitter are comfortable with each other. But my dog took yo Karen immediately and I was able to skip that step very comfortably. My dog fell in love with her instantly, and he is usually a very cautious dog. And as dog lovers know, we can trust their instincts. Karen has been so flexible and goes above & beyond. I'm so grateful I found her!

Mary did an incredible job with our dog Bella who lost the use of her hind legs and is also incontinent. For the first time Bella didn't appear shaky or afraid. Mary was professional, loving, calm and comforting handling her. I could see Bella really enjoyed her bath and loved Mary! She had a gift with pets that was obvious and I would highly recommend her!

    We have had great experience with Katie and The Wagging Leash. When we leave our dog Lilly in Katie's care we know she is being cared for as if she was Katie's own pet. She is walked & played with and loved! Lilly comes home happy & rested :) I would recommend Katie & The Wagging Leash to anyone who wants their pets taken care of as a member of Katie's family while they are away.

    Perfect! Amazing! Above and beyond! Andrea is forever welcome in our home and will be our forever pet sitter! We have three crazy dogs and going on vacation is hard, we don't enjoy kenneling our dogs and having family take all three is a hassle so we decided to try to find a pet sitter and couldn't be happier. We were nervous having a stranger come to our home, especially with one of my dogs being aggressive towards new people and one being only six months old but after meeting Andrea, we knew she could handle it. Andrea responded immediately to all my texts and sent me videos of the dogs and I didn't even ask! She made us feel so comfortable that our home and dogs were taken care of and allowed us to enjoy our vacation. The best part of all when we came home the dogs were tired out and we could all relax before our busy schedules started again. Thank you so much, Andrea!!!!

      I took my little puppy (Willie) for his first grooming appointment today, I could not have asked for a better experience! Amanda is very friendly and professional. He was scared when I first went inside but after a few minutes Willie seemed to calm and Amanda did her thing. When I went back inside too pick Willie up I was shocked! He looked so much better! Looked like he was going to a dog show. The price was as affordable as it gets. Highly recommended to all. My little bud now has his pet groomer for life! Thank you Amanda!

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
