Mary was excellent and clearly very good with animals. My cat was very comfortable with her during our initial visit. Mary was punctual, took detailed note of all cat care related things. She also helped me bring a package into the apartment. She left all the pet care cares (feeding area, litter area) clean and neat. My cat was well taken care of and looked nicely groomed when I came home. Definitely recommend Mary's care!

Dianne did an exceptional job grooming our Goldendoodle Winnie. Winnie looks beautiful! We felt extremely comfortable leaving our puppy with Dianne. She was warm and welcoming, treating Winnie as if she was one of her own. In the past when we would pick Winnie up from the groomer, she was bolting for the door as if to say "let's get out of this place!". However, when we picked her up from Dianne, she was roaming the house and playing with Dianne's dog. We could tell she was very comfortable and not anxious at all! Dianne has earned our business going forward and we highly recommended her services to any pet owner. Thank you, Dianne!

We couldn't be happier! Our triple-coated wooly Siberian cat is two years old and has never been groomed before. She became matted in a painful manner, and had no tolerance for hot weather. She doesn't travel well, and the thought of taking her to a groomer was daunting to say the least--not only because she's a cat, but having to drop her off for several hours would not only stress her terribly, she could be exposed to other animals, and could pick up allergens (I am highly allergic to dogs and other cats). This mobile groomer was a perfect solution! I was with her the whole time she was shaved down, and the view from the grooming bus's windows was a welcome distraction. Jennifer was great with her, and while my cat wasn't particularly happy about her situation, she had a pain free experience, and now she's quite happy with her new 'do! I'll definitely be telling the other cat moms about Little Ark Grooming!

    Michelle is very professional and conscientious about her grooming. I have been taking my West Highland Terrier to her for over 7 years and her work ethics are the best! I would highly recommend Michelle as her work is superb both in quality and precision. She is very honest and conscientious about her work and has a loving nature with all animals!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
