Question I need Help Please!

I have just recently gottan my diploma as a pet groomer. But I am thinking of starting my own buisness from home. I was wondering if you could give me an idea of what you all pay to get your pets groomed?(trims, baths, buzz, nails, ect.....) I would love to have a better idea of prices so that I can charge even less, to make it easier on people.) Thank you very much!!

PetSmart Charges $50.00 to bath and clip my long haired dachshund. PetCo Charges $45.00 for the same dog.

There are a couple of provate people here that do grooming as well that charge up to $75.00 for the same dog.

$10.00 for nails only

Wow...I paid $7.00 for nail trimming(once) on my chihuahua which I about had a cow over.

Grooming around here range from $30.00 to $60.00. Bathing is $12.00. We have alot of them in Wilmington,NC so they keep the prices low.

I know my girlfriend takes her 2 spitz to Petsmart and she pays for full grooming.She said she pays $75.00 for both dogs. That is everything too. The works she calls it.

Hope that helps some.

I know around here we pay $8 just for a nail trim, and one of my dogs cost me $55 for bathing, grooming, and nail trim (the whole works) the other cost me $45 for the same, based on their hair not their size and weight... the 3rd dog would be about $35 as she is a very short short haired dog. Good luck on starting your own business.

cost depends on the area you work in (whats the average income) richer areas charge more and it depends on the size of the dog sometimes even the temperment I have heard of places charging more for difficult dogs
