Frequently asked questions

What is dog grooming?

Whether you love to know your dog is clean or you’re gearing up for family photos with him or her, a dog grooming salon can take care of everything. From baths to brushing, to even painting your dog’s nails, you can expect to pay a starting price of about $40 for a full grooming service (for a small dog). Grooming salons will mostly offer a basic package deal which can include a bath, trimmed nails, and cleaned ears. Dog grooming salons give special care to elderly dogs who might need to take frequent potty breaks or rests between services.


How much does dog grooming cost?

The price of dog grooming starts around $40 for a full grooming service for a small dog, and around $75 for a large dog. If you have more than one, prices can be significantly lower for the second and third dog. For mobile grooming, where groomers come to you, a full service of ears, nails, anal glands, bath, blow dry, and scissor finish is about $75 for average size dogs.

How much do you tip the dog groomer?

Typically, you should tip your dog groomer 15 to 20 percent of the service total to show your appreciation for a good job. Tips should be whatever you can afford and are a token of you gratefulness. It's quite common for your groomer to give you extra services at no charge, such as teeth brushing or nail trimming. Keep all this in mind when considering how much to tip. Additionally, there are certain circumstances when you should the tip the groomer a bit more.

Here's a few examples of when you should tip the groomer extra:

  • If your dog bites or scratches the groomer. Tipping big will help here.
  • If your dog was extremely dirty and gross — especially with dog poo or mud matted to their hinds.
  • If your dog had extreme matting or shedding — this creates extra work for your groomer.
  • If your elderly dog is disabled and can't stand for grooming and needs extra support.

What is included in dog grooming?

Full Service Dog Grooming includes: A bath with towel and hair drying, teeth brushing, nail trimming, eye and ear cleaning, a brush out, and a haircut based upon your dog’s breed standard or your individual style choice.

Basic Service Dog Grooming includes: A bath, trimmed nails, and cleaned ears.
