Wow - I pay $45 for Maggie which is about par in this area. Maggie is a 13 pound mini. That is for the works - wash, cut, nails, anal gland, ears, teeth, etc. I only take her every 5 weeks.

Our groomer has been doing our dogs since about 3 years after we got our first poodle. Our ShihPoo was so bad when at the groomers this was the only person who could work with her. She was a delight otherwise but hated being groomed. When those two died and we got Maggie, we took her to the same groomer as a young pup so she would be used to it early on.

I don't pay anything to have my girls groomed. That would be because I am a groomer. Have been since I was 20. I have been at the same shop for 19 years. We charge $27 for toys and minis and $39 for standards. The sad thing is, you know what they say about the shoe makers children...at the moment I am growing them out from a short clip to a show clip. One will be in the continental and one will be in the english saddle. Lots of work on my part but I want to have my photo taken with them and those are my favorite clips. I wish I knew how to put a photo on the computer and post so you all could see my girls. They are so darn cute. But then they are poodles they just can't help it. emoticon

Lady is a standard and she goes up to petsmart. I've had her done by several folks and have settled on the most reliable and consistent lady there. They charge between $50 and $60 for a full groom. I tend to tip 5 or 6 dollars which is low for me but I've also had some issues with getting consistent service. She usually gets a puppy cut with long ears and pom on her head and tail.

Trufflemaker, yes indeed, you have beautiful dogs!

Mighty Joe gets a mustache and a little bit of hair hanging down from his under his chin...kinda like a goatee. We've been getting him that for years; I love the look on him!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

I take mine to a lady who grooms from her home. She is training for her all breeds master groomer designation, but she does not have it yet. She charges me $45 Cdn for each dog, and does a beautiful job--a really nice modified lamb clip. I go between groomings for face/tail/feet shaves, and pay $10 per dog. I used to pay $75 per dog at another lady's house just for the main grooming, and she did them short all over.

I go to Brannon's Grrom Room here. Lovely person who really loves his babies that come in.

He does a puppy cut on april (paws trimed up to the wrist, trims her up all over her body, gives her a little bouf on her head and her tail.) She loves to go too. It costs 27.00 before tip.

The groomer we go to is in a local pet supply shop. They charge us 60 rand for a complete grooming. That equals out to about 9 dollars. That includes bows, she always looks so lovely when she is all done.

I am most fortunate...my guy (he's a mini) goes to his breeder for grooming, $25, and I give her a $5 tip. No bow or bandana though. And he looks so beautiful when he's groomed!

Years ago when I was living in New Jersey (over 7 years ago) I paid between $35 - $50 before tip.

I KNOW I'm getting a bargain!

Peace, Love, and everything Groovy!

I was just wondering how everyone likes their groomer. And also thought it might be interesting to see what they charge. I'm sure it would be different for a standard as opposed to a toy. I pay $25 dollars for each of my 2 toys. Then I alway tip her and extra $10 for the two. She does a really good job and always puts a colorful bandana around their neck.
