how much should it cost to have a dog groomed?

Are you having your chihuahua groomed? Or your standard poodle? There are huge differences between the maintenance costs of these two animals.

Depending on where you live and the size and breed of your dog, everyday grooming costs anywhere from $20 to $120 for a bath and a standard session. Dogs with curly or wiry coats may cost more to groom. "Extras", such as cologne, nail trimming, anal expression, fur dying, and coat stripping, add to the cost. You will pay more if you are having a dog groomed for a show.
