Dirty Dog Wash plus was amazing! I hired them to bathe my lab, trim his nails, cut some of his hair and dematt his hair behind his ears. They did such an fantastic job! I found them on Thumbtack. They responded to my request right away and were at my house within 2 hours. I was looking for someone to do work that day and they were absolutely ready and available. They took their time did an amazing job on him and he looks gorgeous! Very professional and high-quality work! I would definitely hire them again

I put my needs out on Thumbtack and Melanie of Grooming by Melanie came to my rescue. We texted and then she called and I made an appointment for Eli. I'm looking forward to the appointment as she only takes one dog at a time and doesn't have a bunch of caged dogs waiting around. A good idea for an older dog. Thank you Melanie, see you soon! And thank you Thumbtack for having this service!

We could not be happier with the service that Marissa provided. Our dog started to have seizures and we needed someone to come to our house to trim her nails and shave her paws so that she could be more stable while standing. Marissa squeezed us into her schedule on a Saturday and did not hesitate about our dog's special needs. She was so gentle and sweet with our dog, and took her time so that she was comfortable. She bathed our dog and even put up with our 6 year old son talking/asking questions the whole time; she was just as sweet to him! Marissa brought all of her own supplies, including towels, and cleaned the tub and area where she worked when she was done. We feel so blessed to have found Marissa, she is the best!

Our 2 dogs were groomed the same day I first called Pink Poodle. They were way overdue for a grooming and Pink Poodle had them looking like a million bucks! The owner. Diana Gonzales, is very friendly and quite pleasant. Her groomers did an excellent job. We are very pleased with the grooming and will take them there again.

Cheryl took very good care of my dog and cat over the weekend. She was easy to contact and to set up dates to meet my animals. She even sent me a picture to let me know they were ok. I will use her in the furture to take care of my animals.

About

My service is watching any dog with any behavior -- mean or ugly. I'll watch them all. I love dogs because I seem to connect to all dogs. They seem to want to play once they get to know me because just like humans, once we hang out a for a while, you always connect somewhere in life.

About

I'll walk the animals in naturalistic places, like the disc golf course, Eisenhower trails, and common neighborhoods. I love to give treats and even dance or sit for them. Positive praise gets you farther than barking commands. I'm very squishy and huggable, and I let my dog and other animals sit on my lap for some special petting attention. If they need a bath, I can facilitate it. Also, I have plenty of squishy places for them to sit and rest and a backyard for them to bark and run around.

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
