After several bad experiences with other grooming services, and having my dog react negatively, we found Off the Leash. We have used their services twice and my dog has been fine! He smells wonderful and looks just as good! The last time my dog was serviced, I had several scheduling obstacles, however they worked with me and made sure he was taken care of despite the confusion. This was greatly appreciated! Will definitely be a regular customer!

Prima Donna has been taking care of our dog since she was a puppy. When Donna first came to meet with us she was the first person to make our puppy feel comfortable. Now for the past year and a half our dog has has been loving her walks, hikes and play dates with Deb, Donna and Rob. She leaves with her tail wagging and comes home ready for a nap. Also, you get updates and can check out awesome action shots on Facebook. Prima Donna is professional, reliable and most importantly they LOVE animals. I recommend them without reservation and am SO happy to have found them!

Omg Daria is a heaven sent. I have a 4yr old Yorkie that petsmart kept complaining about and actually stated to me that I won’t be able to bring him to get groomed cause he was to difficult. They even suggested for the vet to do the grooming and that’s way more expensive. Thank God for my friend that introduced me to this app and finding Daria here. She came and introduced herself and let Bentley get himself a good sniff she picked him up and he was great with her. I had to be there for him, to reassure him, cause he has anxiety, but he did great. I guess the option of being in the comfort of his own home his surroundings was what made this experience worthwhile. I have to say that Daria did an amazing job I can finally say I found my own personal groomer for Bentley. I highly recommend her.

Emma (Ruff Recruits) is amazing! She is super accommodating and someone I can trust when I have last minute change of plans that require someone to look after my two boys. There are tons of dog walkers in Philadelphia and I've tried a few, but Emma is my go to. She has full of energy and knows how to control my two crazy pups (they are two hyper golden retrievers). After a dog walk with Emma, I come home to 2 content pups instead of the usual hyperness. She is the best!!!!!!!!!

I met KalI through a friend a couple of months ago after I had been looking for a good dog walker for some time. My dog Bub and myself met Kali in a park in Tarrytown. She is polite, well spoken and certainly was a natural with bub. She has been walking bub for a while now and I can say this. He's thrilled when she arrives and exhausted when she leaves. That's all I can ask for in a dog walker. I highly recommend her

Great dog walking service! They're very professional and genuinely care about my dog. Very reliable and always on time. I have a large dog and was a little nervous at first, but they know what they're doing and are able to handle him easily. I get daily reports on their app, including pics! Sometimes I don't know who enjoys the walks more. My dog or the them!

    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
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
