My dog has been groomed by Alyssa since he was a puppy (over the last year and a half). He loves going to get groomed and always smells and looks amazing afterward! I highly recommend The Golden Girl Pet Grooming!

Erica was outstanding helping us to integrate an adult dog, with lots of energy and enthusiasm, into our house that already had two cats who do not like change! She created a thorough plan and helped us to implement this plan at each step. As new challenges or situations arise she is always willing to offer helpful advice and tips. I would highly recommend her!

I work with individuals and there lovely pets to ensure forever homes. I can go to them or we can find a spot training area that will help resolve other issues elsewhere. Obedience and manors are easier to teach if someone can show you how by demoing with other dog and walking you through the steps. A person does not train a dog in a hour. It is a gradual and consistent project over time.

About

Honestly I don't think there are alot of people in the Kalamazoo area supplying this service. I love dogs, horses, kids (the order - depends on the day I guess)! Dogs are consistent as long as people provide the same.

About

The Well Mannered Dog Center’s fantastic facility in Greater Grand Rapids, Michigan, offers outstanding dog daycare, boarding, dog classes and events. We offer dog daycare, boarding and classes in Grand Rapids. Dog lovers have a deep desire to talk dog and spend time with others who feel the same way. That is just what The Well-Mannered Dog Center was created to provide. The facility is designed to be used as a base for the many area dog training clubs, breed clubs, 4-H clubs and all citizens who enjoy the company of their canine companions. It’s a place to play, learn, compete, and network with dog-loving kindred spirits. During our daytime hours, we focus on canine daycare and exercising our boarding dogs. Our nights are filled with competitive action. Our indoor areas are large enough to simultaneously handle three separate training classes and a regulation-sized agility course. This translates into plenty of indoor space, so people can ‘drop in’ for a few hours in the evening for play, to practice, attend classes or even join a flyball league. Flyball is a furious relay sport for teams of four and their dogs. The competition is ‘ruff’ and is a great spectator sport as well. Dog Daycare When you are away from home, do you often worry about your canine companion alone waiting for you, and wish there was a dog daycare facility where they could receive some attention and healthy activity? At The Well-Mannered Dog Center of Grand Rapids, our dog daycare staff members are ready to tire out your pet, so you don’t have to. Our staff of canine professionals knows that dogs are social critters who crave interaction with people and other pets. At our dog daycare, canine play groups are matched to size and personality. Seventy-five clean and safe kennels provide feeding space and quiet rest time in between rollicking play periods in our large indoor and outdoor areas under the watchful eyes of our staff. We screen all prospective four-legged clients to ensure that they can get along with other dogs. We insist that dogs be spayed or neutered, current on their vaccinations, and on regular flea and tick maintenance programs. Pets found to be ill or with fleas will be quarantined and held for the day at an additional charge. Classes Beginning obedience dog classes are geared to our clients who want more control and a stronger team work bond with their companion canines. Our goal is to enable our clients to handle their dogs in all situations, indoor and outdoor, with confidence. Obedience dog classes are an excellent beginning step for having a well-mannered dog, and can serve as ground work towards advanced performance AKC and UKC competition dog classes. At The Well Mannered Dog of Grand Rapids, our obedience dog classes refine the control behaviors to a faithful level of execution. Beginning obedience dog classes are offered only in a group setting because we know that a group class will yield the best results, as it provides the distractions of the other clients and their companions. Agility dog class provides a positive approach to agility training. Control and accuracy will be emphasized while introducing you and your dog to AKC and international style obstacles. The well-mannered dog freestyle dog classes combine tricks and basic dog obedience to form a musical routine you and your dog perform together. Big or small, formal obedience skills or not, all dogs can do this! Freestyle is a great exercise and fun for both you and your canine partner. Whether you just want to have fun in your own living room, entertain at a local nursing home or get out and compete, freestyle dog classes are a great way to build a wonderful relationship with your dog with a focus on fun, fun, fun!

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.

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.

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
