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!

Katie worked so well with my dog, she was so gentle with him! He is a senior and a lot of times he is shy around people he doesnt know, and not a fan of grooming in general, but he seemed so at ease with Katie. Plus my dog looked great!

Called when they were on their way. Removed a lot of dog waste from the home! So thankful for them so I do not have to do it. My elderly mother uses them as well since she isn't physically able to do it! Would definitely recommend!

I love dogs, and they love me. I will give them great exercise when you can't. Let me take at least one less worry off your mind.

About

I have been training dogs for over 25 years. I believe dogs do not do things for no reason. Many times behavioral problems are caused by the repetition and constituency of their family/pet parent. Stopping a behavior as it is a thought verses an action; teach the human to read their dog and understand why the dog is doing what they are doing can normally solves most "bad" dog issues. Some if not all can be controlled by using basic obedience. A strong foundation is the key to success. Obedience and helping pet parents understand their dog is one of the many services I provide. I also offer pet sitting, (your home, small dogs mine as well) IKT ( In kennel training) and I have to say...I love cats and also offer cat sitting:)

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?

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 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.

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

How much do you tip the dog groomer?

Do you have a dog that you get groomed regularly? If you do, you’ve probably wondered how much — or even if — you’re supposed to tip your dog groomer. Treat your dog groomer as you would your own hair stylist. A 15 percent to 20 percent tip is an appropriate amount to show your appreciation for a dog grooming job well done. If your dog didn’t get clean or their nails didn’t get properly clipped, then you certainly don’t have to tip. But if you’re satisfied with the service, consider the tip part of the standard dog grooming price, and just plan it into your dog care budget so you’ll have a happy groomer and a well-groomed dog. Here are a few examples of when you should tip extra:

  • Your dog bit the groomer! Not good. A big tip will help.
  • Your pooch barked like a wild beast or wrestled the groomer the entire time.
  • Your dog’s hair was extra gross and dirty — think dog poo or major mud matted in their hindquarters.
  • Your senior or disabled dog can’t stand on their own and needs extra care and support.
