HERE COMES THE GROOMER
(574) 220-3760 (call/text)
I am happily accepting new clients that will keep to a 4, 6, or 8 week grooming schedule!
All Pricing is estimated for pets that have been on a regular grooming schedule (approximately every 8 weeks). The prices listed below are the starting prices for South Bend, Mishawaka, Granger and Osceola, IN.
There are many variables in pet grooming, such as whether your pet has long or short hair and also if the hair is matted and tangled. Behavior is another big factor. Extremely nervous, unruly, or extremely submissive dogs are harder to groom than a calm dog. Therefore, there is no set pricing for grooming. I set individual prices for each pet, largely based on the time required to complete the chosen service. Factors which determine the price of a service include:
Amount of scissor work
Amount of under coat
Degree of matting
Difficulty of the cut
Behavior of the animal
Length or thickness of hair
Size of pet
However, you will find my prices quite reasonable. I will be happy to estimate a price range over the phone, and I invite your inquiries.
Small and Medium Starting at $45
Large Starting at $60
XL Starting at $70
This is appropriate for short haired breeds like Boxers, Bulldogs, Dachsunds, Rat Terriers, Pit Bulls, Labs etc.
SMALL and MEDIUM BREED GROOMS Starting at $65
This service is for haircuts, tidy ups, usually using scissors and clippers. But it also includes thick or long-haired dogs like Shelties. Service includes a full bath, brush, and blow dry. A finish cut (either full body or just a tidy up) is then given to give your pet that "freshly groomed" look. Even if you don't want the traditional breed cut, I'll do my best to make your pet look the way you want!
usually for breeds like Shih-tzus, Yorkies, Poodles, etc.
LARGE BREEDS and Cocker Spaniels Starting at $75
There is a lot of variety in coat types, coat condition and behavior. Because of this variety, grooming times on large dogs can be extremely different even within the breed. So for large dogs and Cocker Spaniels, the fee starts at $75. The average "Big Guy" will take between 1 and 1.5 hours. Additional time will be at a rate of $30 per half hour.
German Shepherd, Golden Retriever
Husky, Collie, Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, other -Doodles
Standard Poodle, Giant Schnauzer, Airedale
EXTRA LARGE GROOMS: Starting at $95
Great Pyrenees, St. Bernard, Bernese Mountain Dog, Chow Chow, Newfoundland
Because of the undercoat and sheer size of these breeds, the fee starts at $95 for a dog that is regularly professionally groomed. Home maintainence and brushing is also very helpful. The average (cooperative) big guy in good coat condition takes about 1.5 hours. Additional time will be at a rate of $30 per half hour.
NOTE: I am not accepting once a year grooms.
Shed less treatment: In additional to the high velocity blow dry and basic brushing, the shed less treatment will include deshedding shampoo and conditioner and extra brushing.
Extra Large $20
Matting fee: starting at $10
Nail trimming for other pets (same visit): $10
Nail Trimming Only: $45 for 1-3 dogs, $10 each additional dog.
Fleas: If I find fleas on your dog, I will automatically use flea shampoo. There is a $10 additional fee.
At this time I do not groom cats.
