    how much does a typical trip to the groomer cost?

    We saw an ad for a cocker spaniel... and my husband likes cocker spaniels... he had one growing up
    I know I said low grooming requirements...

    but...

    For a bath, toe nails clipped, ears cleaned, and a puppy trim... one average how much would that cost?

    And how often does a cocker need these things done?

    For a bath, blow dry, cut, nails, ears, paw-pads, and glands for a Kirby dog (and most long-haired dogs) around here is $55-$60 CAD. Looking at around $50 USD. De-mat, or undercoat stripping is extra.

    I used to work for a groomer and she charged $22.50 an hour, but that include the drying time. We also cut the nails and cleaned the ears for free. It usually only takes about an hour to two hours to do a dog. It depends on how good the dog behaves.

    It would be about 49 dollars canadian where I am. oh and cockers will need it prob every 6 weeks more often if you don't keep it brushed out. Just as a heads up cockers get very greasy, lumpy, and warty as they age, just from experience grooming them. and they like to hang themselves when grooming, haha, you use a noose to make sure the dog won't jump off the table and cockers love to just lean on it hard! I don't know how they don't choke themselves haha.

    The kennel I worked at charged $35 - $45 depending on the condition of the coat for the grooming, nails, ears, and a bath.

    I'd recommend brushing daily and scheduling a groom every 4-6 weeks.

    Sounds right about the rate here in IL $30.00-$45.00 every 6-8 wks.
