I was very pleased with the grooming service provided by Cathy. She consistently responded to me leading up to the service within 5-10 minutes. She arrived 15 minutes prior to the designated start time to give herself time to set up and prepare. She took her time with my dog, Maizee, who's only 4 months old and was very patient with her during her very first grooming! The best part was that my pup didn't even have to leave the comfort of her own home which eliminated any stress or anxiety about getting groomed! Also - I was able to get things done around the house! It really was a win-win! I would not hesitate to hire Cathy again. A great value for the services that are provided in the convenience of your own home! Thanks, Cathy!

The office is super organized and friendly. My dog walker Devon is the best. She's fantastic with my two dogs and flexible when I need to make a last minute change. I feel very at ease leaving my dogs in her care. Highly recommend!

Mary did an incredible job with our dog Bella who lost the use of her hind legs and is also incontinent. For the first time Bella didn't appear shaky or afraid. Mary was professional, loving, calm and comforting handling her. I could see Bella really enjoyed her bath and loved Mary! She had a gift with pets that was obvious and I would highly recommend her!

Vera has been incredibly helpful for my dog, Nala, and me. She tailors her sessions to the people and dogs in her class, so everyone is getting their issues and needs met. She's big on 'meeting you where you are at" and helping you understand your dog so you are able to meet them where they are at. When she gives you feedback and suggestions, she is sensitive in her approach and you end up feeling more confident in your ability to train and interact with your dog, rather than feeling like you're a complete failure. You definitely have to put in your fair share of work outside of classes, and she checks in with you to see how you're progressing, which helps hold you accountable. Since beginning our work with Vera, I have noticed that Nala is calmer and looks to me more often for guidance. She responds more quickly when I correct her as well. Nala and I have more work to do but Vera has helped us get the ball rolling in the right direction. I highly recommend Vera for dog owners who want to have a more cooperative dog!

She is amazing with the animals! She taught my dog (and me) most of the basic commands in just 45 mins with great results! She spent a good 2 hrs. Talking about ways I can help my dog (new rescue), and how she is willing to help me. I could not have found a better, more personable trainer than Kim.

About

My name is Avery Bowlan. I recently moved to Massachusetts from Oklahoma and had to leave my dogs behind with my family. I was severely lacking in canine affection over my first few months in Massachusetts, so I began dog walking. I would love the opportunity to spend some time caring for your pets, making sure that they get the exercise and time in the outdoors that every dog needs. I am an active individual who enjoys running and, of course, a good game of fetch. I have experience walking up to ten dogs, several times a week. I'm willing to get outside, rain or shine! There's nothing like a good jog in the rain! I also own an iPhone 5s, which I never leave home without. I believe that communication is extremely important, especially within the dog walking industry. I really hope to have the opportunity to help make my customers and their dogs happy by providing exceptional dog walking service.

About

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

James is a respected dog walker from Ireland offering his services in Boston. He is insured, bonded and with references. Even the most cautious of dog owners would appreciate how he brings his family's Celtic kindness to Boston, Southend, Northend, Beaconhill, Backbay and Fenway. Call anytime, and look for Jim/Gala.

About

I teach dog owners how their dog's mind works, and how to connect to the dog in a way it understands. I teach the dog owner how to be an effective pack leader so the dog will follow the owner out of respect, not because they have food treats.

About

I am willing to take care of dogs by walking them and/or taking care of them for the day, like dog sitting. I am very reasonable, and I will work for no more than 10 hours per day.

About

Your pets have become family members, if you're like us. You're happy if they're happy. Except, of course, when they stink. When it comes time for some pampering or a bath, most grooming shops let you drop off your dog for a portion of the day, and they cage them after and before their grooming. A lot of them use muzzles, and unfortunately, not all groomers are actually dog lovers. That's where we're not the same. Pawsible Solutions comes to your home and offers full grooming services in a state-of-the-art mobile grooming van.

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.

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.

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
