My grooming costs are about $20 to $30 per year. I take care of all
the grooming myself. I file the golden guy's claws once every one or
two weeks, and I trim his ear hair and the slippers on his paws once a
It only costs $10 to give my golden guy a bath at the grooming place
here that has a self-washing station. They have everything I need. I
just bring my dog, wash, dry, and brush him myself, and I don't have
to worry about the clean up. I give him a bath twice a year when he
blows coat, and another bath if he gets into something. Last year, he
decided he wanted to be blue, so to the groomer's we went. Of course,
I threw him in my dorm shower first, but I took him for an official
bath just to be safe.
I think it costs a lot more for people who don't take care of their
dogs claws and extra hair themselves. For instance, at Pet Smart, I
think its roughly $12 for a nail grinding and $6 to trim hair on the
golden guy's paws.
