We loved working with Micah, but probably not as much as our dog Maisy enjoyed seeing him every day! We were sad to see him move and he is missed!!

We are a mobile pet grooming service. We groom both dogs and cats and come to you. All we need is a place to park. We have a 12-step grooming process and use all natural shampoos. We service the greater Springfield and Branson area and would love to hear from you.


I love to make the pets in my care feel safe and secure while making them look their best.


We offer dog training and rehabilitation. I have trained over 250 dogs. With dog psychology, the breed or age doesn't matter. Any problem is solvable be it aggression, nervousness, timidness, hyper-active, chewing, barking, jumping and any other problem.


I am a certified canine specialist trained through America's Canine Academy who offers in-home one-on-one services. Nature designed the best training method for dogs. Whispering uses your dogs natural instincts to change bad behavior. We just have to use the same natural techniques in a practical way to fit our home environments. Americas Canine Academy has taken that natural instinct, taught whisperers and we come to your home and teach you how to communicate with your dog in a calm leadership role. Dogs naturally respond to calm leadership and when you learn how to become the calm pack leader, you will be amazed at how fast your dog will transform. With a new found confidence, a dog that has been pulling you on the leash can walk calmly in just minutes. Our pets are a blessing and will bring us years of joy if we just fulfill their basic needs. They don't know what we expect from them, so it is our responsibility to teach them in ways that are natural, using body language and calm energy that they understand. Dogs live in the moment, so if we will give them what they need, they will give us so much more in return. We have to realize that we cannot ""love" our dog's bad behavior away. There's is no need for dominance, force or intimidation to have a stable dog. Humans just have to realize that although they love their pet, he is not human; he is a dog and you have to learn to understand and communicate in a way he understands. Once you change, your dog will change with you. It's not too late. Once you learn to communicate with your beloved pet in ways that he understands, your relationship with your pet will become stronger and he will wait for your guidance in every aspect. My methods work because they are simple. If we meet our pet's needs, they will meet our needs. Let me show you the proven techniques that work every time, and get your life back. Watching those shows on TV haven't worked for you so far have they? To learn more, you can visit my website, or check out North Texas Dog Whisperer on Facebook. Call or email me and let me share with you how I can eliminate those unwanted behaviors that have you so stressed out. I will be in the Springfield and surrounding areas for the next few weeks and am offering huge discounts and savings. Call to learn more. We give discounts for: Students, retirees, and family. Have some neighbors or friends that may be interested? Ask about our group rate. Adopted your pet from a shelter or rescue group? Do your foster dogs? Just got a puppy? Call today! Can't seem to get your dog to do what you want? Every time you open the front door it's a race to see who can get out first? You don't have guests over anymore because you spend more time yelling at your dog than talking to them? Where's the joy you thought you would have getting this dog? Take control before it is too late and something bad happens.

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
