Hi everyone. I found this awesome grooming/pet store right next to my work(they dont sell animals) I made an appt. for all my girls to get a bath since its been cold lately and they can clip their nails etc...I usually take them to my Vet they charge me $20, I get a five doller discount there but they keep my girls ALL day till about 6pm in the kennels. I hate that, its an all day thing and i dont like that they a re in the kennels for most of the day. This pet store said I would get them all a couple hours later and it includes all the stuff my Vets includes.I also get a 10% discount for working the the center. So for my 30# Sydney it will cost $26 and for my 72# lab is will cost $36. Are these good prices or are they expensive? Also do you guys tip the people who give your dogs a bath. They dont get groomed or clipped or anything, just baths and whatever comes with that. Thanks
I know where I work, labs are $23.99, and I don't know what sydney is so, I can't really tell you, about what his price would be. And, please tip the person that grooms your dogs. We get in trouble if we don't meet a percentage of our sales in tips.
Sydney is a Lab/Shepherd/Pitt/boxer mix but is really small, at 10 months she is about 30 pounds maybe. Lana is a bordercollie/boxer mix and is about 40 pounds, and Winnie is 72 pounds. This place seems like it is more expensive but i just like the fact that they will only be there about 2 hours instead of all day.Also it is a lot closer to me then my Vets office. I will definitly tip them but whats a good amount? They are only getting baths so does that matter in how much I tip? And can you add the tip on your credit card cause I dont have any cash but if not i could go to the ATM before i pick them up. Thanks :)
Well, it does depend on their hairtype as well, but my guestamete on Sydney would be about 24.99, Lana, 26.99, and Winnie 22.99. Size is not the only factor that goes into the prices. The dog's hair and the way they behave goes into consideration as well. Also if they have any mats, the price also goes up. Typically, for just a bath, we get anywhere from $2-5 per dog. For haircuts I have gotten as much as a $30 tip one time (it was for a newfie), but the average is $5-10.
heck that is cheap. where i live, groomers would charge you between 40 and 50 dollars for a lab and not less then 25 - 30 for the other two. a normal tip is between 2 and 10 dollars but for just a bath it would be closer to 2 dollars.
Sometimes I actually take Oscar to the groomers if I am lazy. Now, I know he has short hair but he is huge(150 pounds) and they only charge me 30. Thats just for the basics and a nail trim. I never let them clean his anal glands because he has no problem with them. But I think 30 is real cheap for a dane.
