Update to an earlier post left on 07/13/18 where I left one star... Terra Ann did arrive today and did an excellent job with Candy. Candy was really matted and had one toenail that was growing into her paw. Terra Ann did a wonderful job and even fixed the nail..... Thanks so much for the excellent job, I would recommend her for anyone looking for a dog groomer.

We think Ashley is attentive to our pets, conscientious, and very thorough. She texted every now and then and sent pictures of our dog while we were away. It is nice to find someone that can be so trustworthy! What a relief!

      I was referred to Sky Dogs when I adopted a deaf dog from Spreak! for the Unspoken. Allison Holloway teaches a special needs class for deaf, blind, and deaf-blind dogs and puppies. Once we got the basics down, we found the training staff was open to us joining in other classes. Nosework, treibball, flyball, agility, and many other courses are open to all dogs. If you need help improving your dog's social skills, there are behavioral classes as well. The cost is very reasonable. The center is located at Central Point in Columbus and there is plenty of well lit parking. Besides the affordable prices and friendly atmosphere, Sky Dogs fosters a sense of community among participants and provides opportunities for people (and their dogs) to volunteer to help out in rescue efforts.

      At Scruffy to Fluffy, we will take care of all your Feline and Doggy needs when it comes to grooming.


      If you're against boarding your dog, then give me a call! I'll make sure your furry friend gets the exercise he or she needs as well as socialization (with your permission!) at the local dog parks. I have plenty of experience with dogs and no dog is too big or small (or crazy) to handle! I am willing to bathe, feed, play and cuddle as much as necessary - either your place or mine! This can be a regular arrangement or whenever you need me! Give me a call :)


      Walking dogs is something that I love to do. I will be available to you when needed.



      I am a college student at Ohio State who is looking for dog walking opportunities. I love animals, and I am very active. I used to take care of some of my neighbor's pets when I lived in Cincinnati, but now, I am looking for a new job while living in Columbus.

      High quality dog grooming at an affordable cost!!!


      I am a home-based groomer, scheduling one dog at a time to insure that your dog receives all of my attention as well as to minimize stress. Your dog will be in and out within two hours. I take dogs up to 40 lbs. I specialize in smaller dogs. I am patient with difficult dogs. Clients love that my shop is quiet and small. All products are natural; there are no chemicals. I offer flexible hours.


      I walk dogs, and I am looking for more business. I like the 10/10 deal. That is 10 dollars for 10 minutes. The offer is good for three walks per week.


      I walk dogs in the Grove City, Ohio vicinity and am insured through the Pet Sitters Association (PSA). For the past five years, I have operated an extremely part-time housecleaning and home staging business. I also take care of my clients' dogs, walking them, giving them treats and water and playing with them. I have found that I love spending time with their dogs. I also have a small Cockapoo who I walk several times a day. I am a mature (54 years old), responsible woman in excellent physical shape. My clients will attest to my trustworthiness and can provide excellent references. If you live in Grove City and need an excellent, loving dog walker, please contact me. Thank you.


      All breeds are welcome. Our training centers on aggression issues, basic training, and house training. If your dog has some problems in these areas, we can help you. We only use positive reinforcement and tons of love to train your baby. We also work with many rescues in the Central Ohio area.

      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.

      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

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
