How much do you pay for dog grooming?

Hi,

Just wondering how much everyone is paying for their dog to be groomed. I’m in the north east and had prices anywhere from £20-40 for the same service (full groom/clip off on small dog).

I assume the more expensive ones will be a better finish but I’m just curious to see what everyone else is paying.

thanks in advance

    I asked my partner whose parents have a small dog, he says £25. She does look fab when it's done, I can attest to that. We're in NI where things tend to be on the cheaper side. 
  • North West and I don't have either of my (big) dogs groomed professionally, but lots of my friends do. A small to medium size doodle type tends to be around £40. 
    I have considered having one of mine done as a one off (he's a total mix of breeds and very hairy, with a combination coat) but have been quoted upwards of £60 just for a bath and trim as he's quite a large dog, so I'll stick to just brushing him at home to prevent mats - he certainly sheds plenty - so proper grooming isn't necessary.

    AFAIK small dog approx £25, rough collie £40. Lincolnshire.
    My own dog is a hound so he doesn't get 'grooming treatment!'.
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    Wow, that’s a lot of money for a bath and trim! 

    I don’t blame you for doing it yourself

    After trying out a couple of groomers unsuccessfully I now pay £50 every two months for a Scottie cross dog.  I think you also need to take into account how the dog is looked after whilst being groomed.

  • In Weston Super Mare I pay £33 each for my 2 dogs, in Spain it’s €22 each!

    £40 in Wiltshire.  When phoning around that seems to be the price for a small dog total (including nail trim) groom
