5 stars is not enough for the service we received from Danielle at Gi Brothers Mobile Dog Grooming! She was exceptional in every way. We gave her a bit of a tough case - a rescue Goldendoodle who she immediately made feel at ease. Danielle has tons of natural ability with dogs and is entirely professional in the work she does. She even went WAY above and beyond and contacted the new adopter to give her a clear picture of her time with Maggie! Yesterday the new adopter raved about Danielle!! Kudos to Gi Mobile Dog Grooming for the best possible service in every way - THANK YOU Danielle!!

I have a Labradoodle and two cats. Sarah has groomed my dog and cut my cats' nails for about the past 21/2 years. She has done an outstanding job. Prior to using Sarah, my dog was very agitated when I brought her to be groomed and was extremely upset when I would pick her up. Additionally, I was never very happy with how the dog looked. In contrast, my dog is always thrilled to see Sarah and is calm and happy when I pick her up. She also looks fabulous. Since Sarah has been grooming my dog, people have stopped me on the street to comment on how beautiful my dog is! Sarah is equally professional and gentle with my cats. It is very obvious that Sarah is a very talented groomer. Most importantly however, is that she clearly is an animal lover and advocate. She genuinely enjoys her time with each pet and "sees" them. She does not rush her work. I enthusiastically recommended Sarah.

Was very pleased with the grooming of my senior dog. It made life easier for us both but mainly Bear. He gets so anxious when I take him to a groomer where there are so many other very anxious animals. I will continue to use this service!

I have a Labradoodle and two cats. Sarah's grooming of the dog has been a showstopper. People often stop us on the street to admire the dog. Sarah is the consummate perfectionist. She never cuts corners and is very attentive to your wishes. On top of that, she is absolutely wonderful with the animals. She is truly an animal lover and advocate. My dog loves to see her and is always in a good mood after being groomed. This has definitely not been the case with other groomers. Sarah does a wonderful job trimming my cats' nails, as well. I highly recommend Sarah.

First time cat grooming for matted hair and clumps in my cat Thor. Was worried he might scratch or bite but was told he was very calm the whole way through. He came back nice and fresh, trimmed nails, and with a shaved sensitive area to avoid further clumping. All I had to do was drop him off and they called letting me know he'd be ready in 20 minutes which was perfect. No trouble, very friendly and professional, would definitely go again!

We had a wonderful experience. Our dog is 13 and ailing. He would not allow anyone to touch him. Our groomer approached Seth very calmly, spending a lot of time gaining his trust. We were impressed and grateful. Highly recommend!

My dog LOVES Jessica. She's watched him many times and he never is frightened to be left at her place (or left at my apt with her watching). She's a friend to all animals and hiring her would be a great decision. A+!

We started using Angela when we got our second dog. They both love her! She is great about making sure we know how our dogs do each day. She has been a huge help with last minute arrangements. I always feel comfortable when she is taking care of our girls!

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
