Default Grooming Prices

I was curious about what the cost is around the country on grooming poodle prices....toy, miniature, and standard.

Here, in central Iowa, the charge is $40.00 for a miniature and they do a crappy job....and I mean crappy.

My friend wants to know if she is being over-charged.....

I charge $42 for a F/F/T and body shave, basic groom, but $5+ for scissoring, $5+ for matting, and $10+ for bad behavior.

Here in San Francisco, they charge $30 for a bath + fluff dry (anal glands, nails, ear cleaning including); $45 for a touch-up (everything a bath included + FFT) and $65 for a full groom.

This is for any breed below 20 lbs.

we have a standard. 40 lbs. We pay "Family" price with our groomer, $80 for full groom, $45 for bath, face, feet, nails and teeth... Groomers around here (NY metro) charge minimum $125 to even look at a standard poodle... touching costs more...

and that pricing is across the board - crappy groomers and good ones. Around here, you know how good a groomer is not based on price, but on how far out you have to book an appointment and if they are mobile, they have removed all signs from the outside of the van, because they can't take any more clients. (Ours is thinking of becoming un-mobile, and moving into a shop...)

Ha,ha, love that Fluffy charges more for bad behaviour and that "touching" costs more sarah murphy! Also teeth, no groomers around my area do teeth (what do they do to teeth, btw, brush them?). Here in southern BC groomers pretty much charge $75 for a very basic groom on a standard poodle, and that's using a clipper everywhere and only for very basic scissoring (top knot and tail); for anything more, the price goes up. Likewise with matting, and a lot more than Fluffy's $5! I usually groom my own dogs but lately I have not been in the mood so I'm taking them in to other groomers. Oh, and when they were puppies at 20 lbs, it cost $35 each for FFT, no scissoring. So that's what I imagine it would cost for grooming minis, if you asked for no extras, around here.

I pay $40 plus tip for my toy (as you may have guessed i live in CT)I don't think anyone would dare bring a matted dog to my groomer because she would tell them off. I like her, the dogs all look happy there.

Cost for a full groom for a mini around here is $65, and my practice when I used a groomer was to add a 20% tip. I now home-groom so I "reward" myself with the fee for things like extra wine and good dark chocolates and the ever-so-essential pedicure.

Last time I paid $80 for my 9 month old standard to have a scissored show puppy trim in the Seattle area.
