At Groomit, we receive many questions about our service and pet grooming daily. A subject that commonly crops up is whether tipping our professional groomers is necessary or acceptable.
As the pet grooming industry continues to rise in popularity, many newcomers to the service are
faced with this dilemma and are simply unsure. We understand the worry!
However, the short answer is yes, of course you can tip! Our professional groomers deserve the
extra bonus for a job well done as much as a waiter may.
In this short article, we will be taking a look at why you should consider tipping our expert groomers, how much is a good tip, and how to tip through our service.
Firstly, why should you tip pet groomers in the first place?
Pet grooming is a physically demanding job. It’s not simply giving your dog or cat a light brush and
calling it a day; you could easily do that yourself!
Our groomers are professionals. They cover everything from dematting to anal gland expression; this work isn’t easy.
Additionally, they are doing all this with a personal touch for your particular dog or cat. Every pet is an individual, and therefore, requires a special and unique approach.
For the amount of personalized love and effort our groomers put into your pet, is that not worth a
tip? Our groomers are improving your pet’s comfort, looks, and health all in one session; be sure to consider tipping if you can!
When it comes to how much you should tip, that is completely up to you at the end of the day!
However, we can provide some guidelines to follow if you’re unsure of what would be a good
The majority of people tip pet groomers around 15%-25% of the total price. This can be a good rule
However, consider adding a bit extra in special circumstances. If our groomer has done a fantastic
job, had a particularly difficult time with your pet, or had a lot to cover, don’t be shy about giving a
little more on top of this if you wish!
How Do I Tip?
So how do you actually tip our Groomit groomers? Don’t worry; it’s super easy! We handle all tips through the website or the app. Regardless of which one you use, the process is the same!
It’s as simple as following these three steps:
1. Log in to your account after the appointment has taken place.
2. Go to the My Appointments section and you will see an area to input a tip amount.
3. Input how much you would like to tip!
In this area, you may also rate the groomer. You can even favorite them so that they are your
preferred groomer in future appointments!
