Grooming Costs


Dog Grooming Costs




Think about it… there are many reasons why your dog’s haircut costs more than yours!  

  • You don’t go for 8 weeks and never wash or brush your hair.
  • Your hairdresser doesn’t have to carry you back & forth, kicking & screaming, to the sink.
  • Your hairdresser doesn’t wash and clean your rear end and give you a sanitary trim.
  • Your hairdresser doesn’t clean your ears!
  • Your hairdresser doesn’t have to remove the boogies from your eyes.
  • You don’t bite & scratch your hairdresser.
  • Your hair cut doesn’t include a manicure and pedicure.
  • Your hairdresser only washes and cuts hair on your head!
  • You don’t decide to do an Operatic Solo at the top of your lungs & encourage all other patrons to join in!
  • The likelihood of you peeing or pooping while your hair is being cut is slim.
  • You sit still; you don’t stand then sit and twirl around for hours.
  • You don’t hump the customers with total indiscretion as to who’s watching!
  • You don’t kick the person in the face when they try to give you a pedicure.
  • You walk calmly to the chair when they call your name instead of running away.

These are things that happen every day, I kid you not! 

With that being said… we realize that you would like some guidelines or estimates. The following prices are estimates on pets that are groomed on a regular basis, which is from 1 to 8 weeks.

Pet’s behavior such as aggressiveness, hard to handle, geriatrics, or pets not on a regular grooming schedule to include pets with coats that are matted or with burrs will be charged accordingly.

Due to the risk involved to both the pet and the employees of Dreadlocks for Dingoes the cost of grooming aggressive pets will vary from situation to situation; however, costs range from $150- $400.         


Aggressive Pets

We do not base our decision, of whether or not your pet is aggressive or hard to handle, on grooming experiences at other establishments, only on how your pet behaves here. We have found that this atmosphere is very different from other places and pets tend to respond well in our care.

Please keep in mind the cost for sedation at a vet will range from $200-$300 plus the cost of the groom. At Dreadlocks for Dingoes, we do not sedate and our cost includes rehabilitation for your pet. We hope to change the way your pet responds to grooming resulting in the removal of your pet from the “aggressive/hard to handle” status to the regular pricing ranges.

At Dreadlocks for Dingoes, we are extremely successful at accomplishing this with compassion and dedication. We hope you put your trust in us and we will continue to work with you and your pet unless we find it in the best interest of your pet to send him/her to a vet for sedated grooming.

In the event of a bite that results in emergency medical care, please understand that the cost of care will be added to the services rendered for the day.

Note: This means that if we conclude that your dog is indeed related to rabid dragons, the quality of your dog’s hair cut may be affected, if the groom cannot be completed due to your pets demonic behavior, you will still owe us for the services completed.
