How many of you pay to have your dog professionally groomed. As a porfessional dog groomer I see pets everyday whos owners would go without rather than see their pets go without a trim. I am lucky I can groom mine whenever I like she normally gets done every two weeks, would cost me a fortune if I had to pay. If you do take your dog to a groomer why, what do you get done , those of you who do it yourself why dont you take your dog anywhere. Look forward to hearing your responses.

I don't take my dog to get groomed. I have a pitt mix.. So he doesn't really need much grooming other then a bath, teeth brushed, and ears cleaned oh and getting his nails cut when they need it.. All of which i can do myself and I do. He's super good and just sits there and lets me brush his teeth or cut his nails and i am VERY careful when I cut his nails and always have the stuff to stop the bleeding (just in case) but I've never had to use it so far and i just don't see the point in paying someone else to do something I can do myself.. but when we had a yorkie years ago we would take him to get groomed about once a month.. we had a little more money back then and he need it done with that long hair.

i get my dog groomed with the pet care provider i hired from the internet. i pay 5 dollars to pet sit an hour and at times she gives my dog a bath, cut his claws, and combs his fur. Before i did go to pet grooming stations but i would pay 10 bucks just for a single grooming. but when i heard about pet care services that's all around i shifted to that cause it's cheaper and they provide more services.
