Miranda B. says, "Toni was so kind and patient with my dogs! My dogs can get a little anxious at the groomer and nip when they are scared. One of my dogs even had to be muzzled at other grooming places. Toni had no trouble and even talked about how sweet they were with her! I know this is because she was patient and took the time to make them feel comfortable. They were even giving her kisses when I tried to take them home! And of course, their cuts looked great. I highly recommend her!" Read more

I love all dogs and cats with my over 20 years experience I do what is best for the animal. Weather they need a lot praise, rewards, a super gentle hand or two and correction. I have enjoyed working with all fur family during all life stages and acclimating them to the grooming process. Getting to know you animal and working with their quirks is the best part of my career. I have groomed all breeds in show and pet cuts along with hand stripping terrier coats. I believe in listening to the owners and pet needs/ safety over the final look.

Your Dog Grooming questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

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.

Dog Grooming Prices Average Cost

  • Full Service (small dogs) $40
  • Full Service (large dogs) $75
  • Nail trim + buffing $15
  • Nail trim $10
  • Teeth brushing $10
  • Breath Refresh $10
  • Ear cleaning $10
  • Gland expression $10
  • Face, feet and fanny trim $15
  • Flea & tick treatment $15
  • Blueberry facial $5
  • Paw balm $5
  • Nail Polish $7

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.
