What do you guys pay to get your standard groomed? I mean the full works - bathed, cut, ears cleaned out, nails trimmed kind of groom?
I'm trying to decide it I paid a reasonable price or more than normal...could you also include where you live (roughly - not exact) I'm in IL and I paid $65 but was told it would've normally been $60 but Wrigley had alot of tangles around his feet (which surprised me as I didn't know that).
Here in San Francisco land we are a whole lot more expensive!!! The full groom: bath, ears, nails, anal glands (I only do them if needed, which is not often), haircut, etc is $90 to $125 depending on the groomer. This is the dog in good condition, without mats. Romeo usually gets one or another version of a lamb cut with really full head and long ears and Brandy usually gets her Clydesdale horse cut, aka bikini cut with bell bottom legs and full head and long ears. I am really picky, so my groomer always gets a nice tip.
I beleive my daughter told me at Petsmart to get a groom for my guys ( even though Mandy is on just over 30 lbs) it goes by breed so they would both be over a hundred for a full cut and style. 117 plus tax and tip I am in Ontario Canada
I know a lady who gets a shave down pays 75. So much cheaper for me to take a couple hours here and there and do it myself.
I looked at Casey last night though and though my gosh you are way to long and he has some matts on his elbows. Those are now gone and a good cut is coming this week some time. I have been doing his body but just scissoring in his pants. I am going to take them down to half the length this week
I am in Iowa - I groom Vinnie myself, but I believe our clinic's groomer was charging around $55 for a full groom, but, honestly, I would not have taken my dog to her and expected anything of real high quality. She works somewhere else now and we don't offer grooming anymore.
Where I groom a Standard Poodle groom is about $66, if the customer wants a lot of extra scissoring done i charge extra just because it's very time consuming.
Dematting is $30 per half hour... mostly because I don't like dematting dogs, and if the person is willing to pay it they can do so once...next time dog gets shaved. It's a lot of work to dematt a dog without hurting them.
With my previous poodle, I was going to a grooming school and it was still running about $75 for a full service groom. Right now, I'm going to a professional handler that grooms on the side and she charged $50... but Roxy is still a puppy and I believe she gave me a puppy discount. I imagine that if I continue to go to her, it will run close to a $100 once Roxy is full grown.
My price starts at $100.00 for a standard poodle. That is for a short cut with the legs fuller and if they come every 4 to 6 weeks. Overgroom and long hair and mate would be higher. I am in the Toronto, Ontario area.
