They arrived on time and spent a full hour grooming our sweet dog. They kept our dog totally calm and performed a great job. I will certainly use them again, and I highly recommend their service.

My cat had is 5 years old and had never been groomed. He needed a nail clip and ear cleaning. He also had some tangles in his undercoat near his tail. He is not great in a carrier, and I certainly didn't feel comfortable leaving him at a pet store or a dog groomer. Thumbtack provided 2 suggestions. Randi from Feline Designs replied to my request in minutes and answered all of my questions. Paxton is 5 years old and he's a big boy. I was not sure how he would react. Randi arrived on time, and assured me that he would be fine. She brought a carrier, and she even offered to let me watch, but I thought he might act better if I was not there. She took lots of time with him. He apparently did not mind the bath, and she said he purred while he got brushed. He even wanted to sit in her lap. He looks and smells fantastic! I thought he would hide afterwards, but instead he is showing off and more affectionate than ever! I'm sure he feels better, too. It was definitely a spa treatment. After she groomed Paxton, she even clipped my kitten, Kit's nails! Then, she cuddled Kit for a few minutes, while we talked. Randi was patient, considerate, and professional. I am extremely pleased and I would definitely recommend this service!

Sarah has been grooming our Wheaton terrier for about 21/2 years. She is gentle and takes her time, as he does not like to be groomed. She bathes him, cuts his toenails, brushes his teeth, and cuts his hair, which this last time was too long and a bit matted in places. We have had our dog groomed in several places, but Sarah is by far the BEST dog groomer. She is patient and his haircut is always even and to our liking. We highly recommend her to anyone.

    The owner of Skillman Pets goes out of his way to research the best natural and holistic dog and cat food brands and stocks only the best rated ones. Couple that level of care with the owner's motto of ensuring absolute customer satisfaction and you have an ideal recipe for a small local neighborhood business. His store is ample, not cramped nor overwhelming. For those who do not feed their pets the brands he stocks, there are bowls, toys, collars, leashes, kennels, beds, wee wee pads, clothing, rawhide chews, bowls, shampoos, supplements, mouthwashes, and hairball treatments. Furthermore, the owner gives free food samples and really dedicates time to his customers--he offers advice and asks questions to determine which food (and flavor) your pet may prefer. There are grooming services on site available and this is especially ideal in a neighborhood with so many pet owners. The entire staff is warm and friendly. They had a rocky start, but responded immediately to neighborhood requests (some of which, unfortunately, bordered on violent) to not sell pets. Instead he offers his store as space for people to come and offer homeless pets up for adoption. He could have just agreed not to sell dogs, but he goes that extra step, that extra mile. That's the type of local business owner Skillman needs. And I wish him luck and hopes he sticks around for a long time.

    Kelly is great at what she does and has a huge passion for it, you can see it when watching her and just talking to her I felt at ease and happy to leave my dog wrecker (French bulldog) for a bath and spa treatment. I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Kelly.

    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
