Dog Grooming Prices for Philadelphia, PA
There are 19 dog grooming companies in Philadelphia that have websites. I have a list of dog and cat grooming prices for ten of the companies. But eight companies do not list their prices.
The prices for various dog and cat grooming services for all 10 companies are relatively equal. The greatest variation in grooming prices is by either size or breed of dog. The same is true for short or long-haired cats.
Five companies have a full grooming list of prices by the size of the dog: small, medium, large or extra-large. Nine of the ten companies have grooming prices for dog nail trimming and for ear and teeth cleaning. Six have prices for just a basic bath or wash, and two of them have DIY wash prices.
And then there are the eight without prices. I can understand why they do not list dog grooming prices. Imagine washing a Chihuahua versus a Saint Bernard. The different sizes of dogs and the amount of fur make it impossible to list prices for that much variety. I would assume their prices would be similar to the other companies.
Seven of the 19 companies also offer cat grooming, four of them list prices.
Dog Grooming Services Offered
There are a lot of different services offered. Here are the most common:
- Various bath or wash packages with shampoo and conditioner, towel or blow dry, and flea and tick bath
- Brush out and haircut, matte removal
- Nail trim and paw pad cleaning
- Sanitary trim and cleanup, anal expression
- Facial, ear cleaning, plaque removal and teeth brushing
- Massage, pickup & drop off, and probably other services that I missed
There are packages that group a lot of those services together, or you can select individual services. Which services you need depends on your breed of dog.
Dog Grooming Prices by Zip Code (as of 9/4/19)

And don’t forget to look at groomers throughout the city that do not have websites. I know Bow Wow & Meow’s is a groomer in Fairmount. But because they, and other groomers, do not have a website it would not be easy to find out what their dog grooming prices are.

DIY Dog Grooming Tips
Grooming your pets can help improve their lifespan. It provides well-being, health, and comfort. In doing so, you may find cuts, scratches and other skin problems, swelling, or even ticks. Changes in temperament would be a good reason to take a closer look at your dog or cat.
You should bathe your dog every 2 weeks, and don’t use human shampoo (no human products of any kind). All dogs shed, especially in the spring and fall so regular brushing and bathing are important. Dogs that do not shed a lot, need regular grooming.
Make sure to use the right brush for the coat, and brush every other day. Check for ticks or other parasites. Also, check for cracked, dry or injured pads. or excessive hair in their pads. You will also need to trim nails and perform daily teeth brushing. Don’t clip their nails unless you know what you are doing.
If the above didn’t convince you to take your dog to a professional groomer, then the list of tools & equipment you need just might:
- Types of brushes: The most common are the bristle brush, wire pin brush, and slicker brush. More specific brushes are the curry brush and shedding blade.
- Combs: stripping combs, matte combs, rakes
- Scissors & clippers
- Shampoos and conditioners
- Specialty toothbrushes and pastes
- Nail clippers
So you will need lots of tools, have lots of knowledge and know-how, and lots of time. In the long run, it will cheaper to do it yourself. Or you could save yourself time and let a professional groom your pets.
