The best way for me to describe my experience with Bruce Stone and Interdyne International K-9 would be to say that I feel like I hit the dog training lottery. I was recommended by a friend, but for anyone out there that really wants to see how well behaved their dog has the capacity to be, he IS the answer. He is a phenomenal teacher, extremely knowledgeable and absolutely a true professional in every respect. His always prepared, straightforward, and confident approach immediately gives you the feeling that you and your dog are both in extremely competent hands. It was some of the best money I've ever spent.

Sara is phenomenal. My dog is happier, I am happier. She is always available when I need her. As a surgeon, my schedule is often very unpredictable, and having a trustworthy and fantastic person like Sara taking care of my dog makes me breathe a lot easier

My boy Charley always stays at the YDBF daycare and he loves it. I have never seen a dog excited about leaving home. All the walkers treat him like their own dog and I know he is being loved and looked after. Even for his weekly walks, Charley looks forward to them coming to get him. I don't know what I would do without them. Thanks guys!

I’m writing a review so much about my experience but from the experience my dog Zeus had. Colleen is a professional, kind, caring individual. She is very passionate about what she does and how the animals that she grooms feels. She has a warm and welcoming demeanor that sends pets running towards her. Zeus had such an amazing experience that he was genuinely calm being taken care of. By no means is she just a fly-by-night groomer, she has many years experience and is very nurturing. Plus, above all else, she uses all natural products that are extremely pet friendly. Never have I seen my dog Zeus in discomfort In the hands of this wonderful professional, I highly recommend her to everyone.

Alex came and clipped our cat's nails like a pro! She is excellent, and he is not an easy cat to pin down. We are excited to use her regularly now and hopefully he will get more used to it and be up for even more grooming!

Donna's caregiver came to see my pets every day on schedule while I vacationed, and looked after them, including my special needs (deaf) cat. I got regular text updates including pictures. I came home to clean litterboxes, recently filled water and food bowls, and healthy pets. Very happy.

      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.
