She is very polite and gave my border heeler a great experience. I was very satisfied when she her dropped off.

    Amanda was excellent; my door looked great received lots of compliments. Per Smart takes four hrs, she did twice as much in 90 minutes. She was able to get dog to relax and she went to work. Price is reasonable, my new groomer

    This gal is the best! Our dogs don’t get stressed nearly as much as with other groomers! We won’t go anywhere else! She uses all-natural products, which are much better on their fur & skin, files the nails, as well as trimming them, so no sharp edges. Our dogs even get a treat to take home!

    Extremely satisfied. Fit me into her schedule on short notice, and did a beautiful job grooming my Bernese Mountain Dog in preparation for a show. Particularly liked how well she trimmed the nails! Paisley was happy, too. We'll definitely return again. :)

    Does your dog hate car rides? Does he/she have anxiety about going to the groomers? Are you too busy to take your precious pooch to the beauty salon? Then, look no further! I am a certified groomer of seven years, a stay-at-home mother, and animal behavior specialist. I will come to your house and groom your puppy right before your eyes! I provide full-service grooming, from a simple bathing to breeding and doing specific hair cuts. All grooming comes complete with nail grinding (no painful nail cutting), ear cleaning, anal glands expressed (yes gross but extremely necessary for a healthy pet), and complimentary de-shed treatment. Aside from grooming, I can also provide one-on-one training techniques (our puppy is fully potty trained at only 10 weeks old!) Note that I will groom cats if they are okay with strangers, and you agree to a small dose of children's Benadryl. This will keep your kitty from becoming too anxious and is safer for their well being and mine. Most grooming companies refuse cats and/or will give them anesthesia! My pricing is extremely reasonable and cheaper than PetsMart. It's guaranteed! You can call today to schedule an appointment and have your pet pretty for the holidays!

    Dandelion Acres offers 3 acres of fenced play space! We feel that dogs need room to run and play both inside and out! More like a dog park, we don't have high fences and confined spaces. Pups are able to go outside far more than two times per day like other kennels offer.

    I have experience with giving dogs their meds and sticking to a strick diet.

    About

    I can provide training and exercise that will help your dog become a great family member! I use completely force free methods. ZERO prong, choke, chain, or shock collars. Buckle or martingale collars are acceptable along with front clasp harnesses! (I don't mind giving recommendations) We work WITH our dogs and help them figure out what we DO want from them and not what we DON'T want from them. I will help you make training into a fun game with your dog instead of a 'chore'. Training doesn't only make your pup tolerable to the family unit but strengthens your bond to your pup and makes your dog WANT to work for you!

    We focus more exclusively on the relationship between pet and owner, creating an unbreakable bond that ties them together, so that they work better together. We will initially work with the dog, showing them the command and what is expected, then we hand the control to the owner and help them master the command.

    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.
