Cathy did an excellent job washing and grooming my dog Ruby. She is a seven year old golden retriever and her thick mats were all taken care via Cathy's patented puppy cut! She came right to my house and Ruby couldn't have been treated more kindly and comprehensively. When my wife came home she was pleasantly surprised at how much cuter Ruby looks. I will definitely call Cathy again for Ruby 's next grooming!

Audreys is excellent! Extremely knowledgeable and professional. I have 3 dogs and Audreys came out prior to job and met with dogs and us. She went over and above with both our dogs and home. We have already used her services twice and have booked several more. Audrey is our go to pet sitter...she has become family. We are extremely selective when it comes to our babies and before Audrey only two people (family) have stayed with them. Audrey has been an angel. 100% Recommend!

    I took my little puppy (Willie) for his first grooming appointment today, I could not have asked for a better experience! Amanda is very friendly and professional. He was scared when I first went inside but after a few minutes Willie seemed to calm and Amanda did her thing. When I went back inside too pick Willie up I was shocked! He looked so much better! Looked like he was going to a dog show. The price was as affordable as it gets. Highly recommended to all. My little bud now has his pet groomer for life! Thank you Amanda!

    About

    I am a dog lover and willing to board dogs in my home or pet sit at the dog's home. I look forward to meeting more dog owners in my area!

    About

    I love all dogs, from big to small. As long as they're friendly to new faces, I would be more than happy to walk, feed and bathe your furry friend. I have experience; when I was younger, I used to walk and take care of all the dogs in my neighborhood. I've always had this special connection with animals. I watched a full-grown pit bull for 2 months with nothing but great compliments to say about my services!

    About

    I love dogs, and I love to walk. I like to stay close to home. I could bring the dog to the vet and would work on dog commands.

    About

    I am currently a college student in the Fenway area of Boston. I have a lot of experience with dogs as I have been a trained volunteer at a nonprofit organization for over a year. My responsibilities in this position range from teaching dogs to sit for a cookie while they are in their kennels to feeding them at mealtimes and walking them using training and management techniques that are safe and kind as they wait to be adopted by their new owners. The dogs I have experience with have many different backgrounds, vary in sizes (from chihuahuas to pit bulls) and have various behavior issues. I have also been dog sitting for a 13-year-old black labrador for four years. My volunteering experience has opened up many dog walking and sitting opportunities to me. I had a daily dog walking job last summer with a two-year-old terrier mix (from Mondays-Fridays, one-hour walks), and I currently have a temporary dog walking position for a two-year-old chihuahua. I have my own dog at home with my parents so I understand the importance of having the right people around your pets, and I can be that person for you. I am reliable and honest, and I love dogs. My pricing is reasonable, and I can create custom payment plans to accommodate your budget.

    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.
