Sarah truly cares about your pet. She has done an excellent job aiding me in walking and training my Old English Bulldog. More importantly, when the fire alarm in my building went off while I was at work, Sarah was nearby and made sure my dog, my best friend, was taken care of. I couldn't ask for any greater service.

My experience with Bruce could be described as nothing less than a blessing. He is extremely easy to talk to, answers any question, and truly cares about you, your pet and your experience. He is very informative and is willing to work with your needs. AND it’s a plus he comes straight to you! I cannot wait to continue to work with Bruce and believe he will do great things for me and my pup.

Our little 14-year old guy has problems with his back legs and because of this we were struggling with where to have him groomed. Then Nancy’s Shaggy to Chic Mobile Dog Grooming came to our rescue. We were able to have our guy groomed in the comfort and security of his own home. And Nancy was so kind and gentle with him. She talked to him throughout, calming his fears and giving him kisses and hugs. She even provided treats which he happily gobbled up! Nancy took her time with him – adjusting to his temperament – and transformed him from the shaggy guy he was to the chic guy he is. She provided the towels, all the equipment and the love. We only needed to provide a place to wash him. If you are looking for a professional groomer who really cares about you and your pet, we highly recommend Nancy’s Shaggy to Chic Mobile Dog Grooming. Couldn’t be happier.

Daria did a fantastic job grooming my pomapoo, Gia. She loved Daria so much she wanted to go home with her! It’s so comforting to have my dog groomed at home, total transparency. Daria was so accommodating when I asked her to clip another dogs nails on the spur of the moment. I highly recommend Daria!

Sheri is very kind and talented. She groomed our little fella Pete; he's a yorkie who gets stressed out when he's groomed, so I thought a personalized grooming might be better for him. It was perfect! And when he was done he gave Sheri kisses. Would highly recommend her.

Barry and Matthew were excellent!Barry groomed Cosette,our Coton,thoroughly from head to toe. He carefully cleaned her ears and checked for infection.He brushed her teeth.Of great importance, he meticulously cut her toenails.We were unaware that our former groomer had not ever cut her nails,which were curling into her foot pads.He continually checked his work.The cut was beautiful! Barry was kind and gentle with Cosy,who calmly submitted to the grooming.Matthew thoroughly shampooed Cosy and checked her anal glands.He,too,was very gentle and thorough.This in-home grooming was the best grooming that Cosy has ever had. We shall definitely continue to have Barry and Matthew groom Cosy.We are very relieved and grateful to have met them!We would be pleased to be used as a reference! Best,Susan and Don Bressler

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.

Do cats have to get groomed?

It’s not crazy to have your cat groomed. Grooming will keep your cat’s fur soft and silky as well as give you early warning about any health concerns. Regular grooming can also help reduce the volume of hair your cat may be shedding and keep your longhair kitty cool if you live in a warm climate. Professionals competently groom your cat and are trained to manage them if they resist being groomed, while you may get scratched doing the same task. The national average price for cat grooming is $50-$70. Pet grooming prices may vary based on the task. For example, a bath and brush for shorthair cats may be $15, $20 for medium-hair cats, and $25 for a longhair. Cat groomers can also keep your cat’s ears cleaned, trim their nails, and provide haircuts if needed. Average prices for haircuts can vary from $30 to $95 or more, depending on whether the cat is shy or aggressive and whether their coat is in good condition, matted, or otherwise difficult to groom.

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.

Where can you get your cat groomed?

Cat grooming keeps your cat’s fur tangle-free and clean. Most businesses that offer dog grooming or general pet grooming also offer cat grooming; some businesses even specialize solely in cat grooming. Look for a professional who has training grooming cats or belongs to a professional association such as the National Cat Groomers Institute, because cat grooming techniques can be different than for dogs. Cat grooming can encompass a wide range of services. In addition to haircutting, hair detangling and hairstyling, cat groomers can trim cat nails, clean out your cat’s ears, give flea baths, demat, trim facial fur, bathe and even blow-dry your cat. Health safety and etiquette requires your cat to be in good health and have all their vaccinations before using grooming services.
