If I can run a comb through your dog from head to toe without it getting stuck, you will be charged the lower rate! A dog that gets groomed every 4-6 weeks is typically in good condition and will not need as much prep work, if any, before the bath. Where as a dog that hasn’t been in, in awhile could take a good half hour to an hour to brush out or shave off mats (knots). Sometimes these mats cannot be brushed out due to the pain it causes them and the danger of cutting into the skin. I will always choose comfort over vanity for your pup and let you know if I recommend your dog to be shaved.
It is hard to give a firm estimation of costs for your dog due to many variables such as size, coat type and condition, style of haircut, temperament and the time spent to groom the pet.
The longer it takes to remove all the dead hair and matts/knots the more expensive it will be. If a pet goes to the groomer on a consistent bases and the coat is free of knots it will be cheaper. Pre-shaving or de-matting knots on long haired dogs, will automatically put you in the higher range of payment. . For example, a dog that always gets shaved down to a short length will come back and the coat will still be on the shorter side, if it’s been coming consistently. A dog that is getting groomed consistently, but is left longer, there is a lot more hair to wash, dry, and brush.
I know everyone wants the best bang for their buck, but sometimes you get what you pay for. The best way to keep the price as low as possible is to get on a schedule for every 4-8 weeks, and/or bath & brush appointments between grooms, brushing your dog in between groomings, and start them young, so they are accustomed to being groomed and behave well.
Best thing to remember... Good Groomers aren't cheap and Cheap Groomer aren't good!
