I charge $50 for small dogs. If the owner wants something fancy on a toy or mini poodle, then it will be a little more. I do give discounts for people who pre-book 4, 6, or 8 weeks out. My basic groom for a Standard poodle is around $70, anything fancier is more. I do charge extra for matting and bad behavior (aggression, biting).
I offer Puppy Grooms. For a Standard Poodle (large puppy), between 2nd round of shots to 6 months, it is $40. This includes bath, brush, blowdry, nails clipped and filed, ears cleaned and plucked, sanitary trim, face and feet shave, and haircut. It goes up to $50 for spoos between 6 months and 10 months, and from 10 months and up, it goes to the $70 price. For the smaller poodles, the puppy groom will be $20 for toys and $30 for minis. Then it goes to the $50 price once they are over 6 months old.
I base my price on breed, size, and coat condition - so I have a list of breed prices as opposed to just size and weight.

I would probably tack on an extra $10 for the Miami. I love the Miami. I think it encourages people who get shavedowns all the time to try something different to add some flair.
Me too, I love the Miami especially for summer. Indy has so much coat, and now that they're out of coat change, I'm kind of dazzled with all the choices for what to do next! I'm growing them both out and trying to decide It kind of sounds from the responses on this post that prices are fairly consistent all around the U.S. and Canada.
When I lived in the Bedford area (UK) the groomer charged 58 pounds for two dogs, and she was fabulous! Dogs always looked amazing...Sadly now I have to do them (and it shows)!!
I'm planning to take the dogs back to the UK next year and I will definitely book them in for a groom.
