Got questions?
we have answers.

Full-service grooming cost is based on breed, pet size and type of fur or hair. It will be confirmed for you when you meet your stylist at the start of your service, and a standardized rate card based on location is available at your salon. Your stylist will consult with you before each appointment to create a personalized plan that you and your pet will be happy with!

Getting started is easy! To book a full-service appointment for your dog, click the 'Book Appointment' button on this page, or call your salon and they can set you up.

If you'd like a free grooming consultation before your pet's full-service bath or groom, or one of our walk-in service options, stop by your salon anytime with your pet's proof of vaccinations.

For cats: Please call your salon and we'll get you set with a stylist who specializes in grooming cats!

This will depend on the size of your pet and service. Your stylist will be able to provide an estimated time of completion at check-in. Express Services are available.

Please call your salon to change or cancel an appointment. If you have already set up text message communication with your salon then you can send a text message request as well!

Our stylists love and welcome ALL dog breeds*, and many salons also have stylists who specialize in grooming cats.

Please note that regardless of pet type, we always put safety first. Sometimes pets can stress in new situations. If we feel your pet is too stressed or showing any potential health concern, we may opt to conclude the grooming appointment in order to do what's best for them. Your stylist can help recommend a grooming service for a smooth introduction, such as a Mini Make-Rover. For any potential health concern your stylist will refer you to your veterinarian.

  • Pets with special needs: Our salon safety protocol is maintained to the highest safety standards. Express service is available for pets who prefer to be hand dried only. For pets with flatter faces (also known as brachycephalic), your stylist will recommend this option as this will greatly decrease the amount of time your pet will spend in the grooming salon, and may be a better option for the health of certain breeds. Please note that we cannot accept wolf hybrids at this time, due to vaccination limitations.

We use a number of drying methods designed to ensure the safety and comfort of every pet (including air drying, towel drying, or non-heated hand-held and kennel dryers); and we do not allow the use of kennel dryers on brachycephalic breeds that are prone to respiratory issues.

We train and certify our grooming salon teams using educational academy programs that include extensive, hands-on practice and apprenticeship, and most importantly place a heavy focus on doing what's best for pets in every situation.

Amongst apprenticeship programs and other hands-on training activities, Petco pet stylists who are trained from within the company are required to attend and pass Petco's comprehensive 12-week Pet Stylist Apprentice & Certification academy program. In addition to hands-on grooming training with a Petco-certified pet stylist mentor or instructor, all participants receive instruction in health, safety protocols and grooming salon operations. At the end of the program, candidates must pass a technical skills assessment in order to become a Petco Certified Pet Stylist.

Experienced pet stylists hired from outside the company must complete a personal skill evaluation by a Petco Certified Pet Stylist or Grooming Salon Leader, as well as four weeks of safety and pet grooming operations training. They must also complete and pass a technical skills assessment within 14 days of hire. If the candidate does not pass the technical evaluations, they must complete Petco's 12-week Pet Stylist Apprentice & Certification program and retake the skills assessment.

We continually review and update our pet grooming policies, procedures and standards, under the supervision of our Director of Veterinary Medicine, with counsel from a number of independent experts in animal care, behavior and ethics. We continue to train our teams on and reinforce the critical importance of following those policies at all times. Since 2015, we've worked together with the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC) and the Professional Pet Groomers & Stylists Alliance (PPGSA) to encourage and support national health and safety standards for the grooming industry. We believe these standards are critical to the wellbeing of pets everywhere, and we continue to work with other pet industry leaders to encourage industry-wide adoption and adherence to them.

At Petco, our commitment to the health and safety of the pets in our care is unwavering and a responsibility we take very seriously. We are pet lovers and know that it's an honor and a privilege to serve and treat our guests' pets like our own.

We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of animal care and safety in the industry, as developed under the supervision of our Director of Veterinary Medicine, with counsel from a number of independent experts in animal care, behavior and ethics.

We stand behind personalized service that focuses on the individual needs or concerns of each pet parent and pet. Every visit includes a comprehensive 7-Point Pet Care Check upon check-in to our salon and we require our stylists to refer any pet with a known or potential health concerns or displaying any signs of stress to a veterinarian.

We require the use of a "groomer's helper" during all grooms to help ensure the safety of both the pet and the groomer. The "groomer's helper" is a tool designed to help safely maintain control of the pet's body and head while on the grooming table.

Proof (documentation) of up-to-date, age-appropriate vaccinations are required for your pet so that we can maintain a healthy, fun environment for all guests. Requirements include:

  • Parvovirus, hepatitis, and distemper vaccinations for all dogs and puppies

  • Rabies vaccination for dogs and cats aged 16 weeks or older (if a medical reason prohibits your pet from receiving this vaccination, please consult your salon ahead of visit)

    • New York City administrative code also requires dogs show proof of vaccinations for para-influenza, parvovirus within past three years and for Bordetella within the past six months

  • Parvovirus (panleukopenia), herpesvirus-1 (viral rhinotracheitis), and calicivirus for cats

For questions please consult your Petco salon or store. Please be sure to leave 24 hours between vaccine administration and grooming service.

Time to update a vaccination? Petco offers convenient walk-in vaccination clinics led by state-licensed veterinarians at most stores, without the accompanying appointment fee! See your store for convenient times and details.
