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!

Blake was a great trainer in helping me with my dog who had crate anxiety. When I got my dog he couldn't even stay in the crate for an hour without hurting himself, Blake was caring and helped train him to where he can stay in the crate for full work days no problem. She also cared enough to teach him obedience and helped my dog become confident in being away from me. Being trained by her was the best thing that could have happened for my dog.

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!

    Katie is amazing. I am one of those dog owners who treats their dog like a member of the family. It used to make me sick to my stomach with worry if I had to leave town for a few nights and leave Gizmo with someone. I do not worry anymore. When Gizmo is with Katie I know he is being cared for in the same way. If I need Katie to take Gizmo for a walk, I don't worry. Katie is reliable and professional and she always has a cookie for Gizmo. I have been spoiled by the service provided by Katie and the Wagging Leash. I highly recommend.

    "He/She doesn't listen to anyone", I hear this from people about their pets everywhere I go. However, after I spend some time with them more often then not i'll have them sitting, laying down, playing fetch, you name it! I've taught them at least 1 trick and the looks on the owner's faces are always priceless.

    I do dog walking, loving, playing, feeding, and sitting; you name it. I have experience with elderly dogs, as well as being aware of dogs that have a medication routine.


    I am available to come to the house and get the dog. I will make sure that the dog gets his proper walking and exercise. I am a loyal employee. I will always arrive 15 minutes before we schedule, and it is totally up to you how many times.

    I feel that my skills are more about understanding the dog and how he/she learns. When people understand that human language is not the one that works when you have a dog that has a issue that doesn't seem to get better but just keeps getting worse when you can learn to speak dog an know why it works you will see happy owners along with a very happy and healthy relationship with the dog

    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.
