We always tip them 20% (for a good job) and 10-15 when I have been less than pleased w/the cut (this only happened once ). I actually tip them better than my own hairdresser...haha...I want to make sure she takes really good care of Dex
I think Kryczek's groomer is fantastic and tipped her 20%. I have no idea what the going rate is for grooming, but her fee was $50.00 which I found very reasonable. She listened to me and did exactly what I wanted, which was to not have him shaved to close or look poodle like. She also trimmed his nails (I am awful at that) and plucked his ears (bad at that too).
I'm taking Chip in next Monday for his first ever grooming. He's 10 months old, and I'm embarrassed to admit the past couple of weeks I've been too busy and now he's a mess. I'm almost embarrassed to take him in.
How much extra would you pay in this case? I know it's going to take longer than usual and not be a lot of fun because I slipped up.
I told the groomer what the situation is upfront and she still quoted me her going rate. 'Course she hasn't seen him yet. lol I plan to have him shaved down short and just start over. Thank God spring is finally here so I can.
short :shock: how about more like
naked? surgical prep?
or CLOSE SHAVE for sure........we know Rumor won't be showing
any 5 o'clock shadows for a long time hahhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
(sorry Gene...i owe you big time)
Back to regularly scheduled topic now
OH Tink, i pay $50 but if your dog is matted they charge an extra $10 due to saying it can mean an extra 30min of grooming.
even $60 is a good price.....petsmart charges $65 with NO matts
and the groomers that drive to your own home ...$120 :shock:
