Our caring, Petco-certified dog groomers love what they do and love helping you.

You and your pet

A visit to our salon will not only help your pet look and feel great, but their fresh scent and soft coat will make cuddling at home even more enjoyable.

You and your pet's stylist

Our groomers complete an 20-week, 800-hour course for certification, so your best friend will be in good hands.

We're with your pet every step of the way

From start to finish, we make your pet’s health & wellness our top priorities.



Your service starts with our 7-point Pet Care Check*, a quick screening where we make sure nothing looks or feels abnormal.


Initial Brush & Clip

Each dog's service is personalized to their needs, which may include a thorough brushout or initial shave for dogs with thick coats.



Scrub-a-dub! We gently massage shampoo into your dog's coat to remove dirt, oil and debris, leaving them silky-smooth and squeaky-clean.



Drying dogs isn't one-size-fits-all. We use a variety of methods from air- and towel-drying to non-heated hand-held dryers to ensure dogs' safety and comfort.

You can call your local Petco grooming salon before your visit to receive an estimated price. Based on your preferred grooming service options, you can discuss details over the phone or in person when you meet your stylists at the start of your pet's groom.

For the health and safety of all guests and stylists, we require proof of current vaccinations based on your pet’s age. Requirements include:


  • Under 16 weeks: At least 2 sets of puppy starter vaccinations that include distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus
  • 16 weeks and older: Rabies vaccination


  • Under 16 weeks: Parvovirus, herpesvirus type-1 and calicivirus
  • 16 weeks and older: Rabies vaccination

Please make sure there’s at least a 24-hour time period between vaccine administration and their grooming service. For questions, we recommend consulting with your Petco salon to ensure that your pet has the proper vaccinations prior to their appointment.

Are their vaccinations expired? Visit Petco Veterinary Services to find a convenient Petco walk-in vaccination clinic.

The amount of time a grooming service takes depends on your pet's size and the type of service requested. Your stylist will be able to provide an estimated time of completion at check-in or over the phone.

Minor services, such as nail trimmings, approximately take 5 minutes and, depending on salon availability, no appointment is necessary. However, we recommend calling your local salon to confirm availability.

For a speedy grooming experience, an Express Service can be added to any full-service bath or haircut at an additional fee of $15. For brachycephalic breeds, such as French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs, Pugs and Boxers, we offer the Express Service (VIP) for the safety of the pet. Ask your stylist for details and availability.”

We offer several methods of drying that are designed to ensure the safety and comfort of every pet. These methods include air drying, towel drying, non-heated hand-held and kennel dryers. For brachycephalic breeds that are prone to respiratory issues, we do not allow the use of kennel dryers.

For dogs, we offer online booking on and on the Petco app. For cats, please call your salon to confirm if a stylist for cats is available. If you'd like to chat with a stylist about your pet's specific needs, call your local salon.

Petco dog groomers are trained to the highest standards and must successfully complete an 800-hour, 20-week course for certification. Visit Petco Grooming Certification Process for a more detailed guide on the certification process.

Please call your salon to cancel or make changes to your appointment.

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 several independent experts in animal care, behavior and ethics.

A few ways we ensure your pet’s safety in the grooming salon is by:

  • Completing a comprehensive 7-Point Pet Care Check for every pet upon check-in to ensure nothing looks or feels abnormal
  • Using ramps or steps for senior dogs to get into the tubs or bathe really large dogs on the floor
  • Providing industry-standard comfortable and safe kennels
  • Utilizing the Groomer’s Helper tool, designed to help safely maintain control of your pet’s body and head while on the grooming table

Based on guidance from the CDC and other public health experts, and to help protect the health and safety of our Petco partners, guests and the broader communities we serve, we respectfully require CDC-compliant facial coverings in all Petco stores nationwide. To help our groomers and pet parents maintain a safe distance from each other, we've restructured our Petco grooming schedules. We ask that only the pet receiving services and one pet parent visit our check-in desk – additional family members should remain home to help keep everyone safe. Pet parents are being asked to maintain a safe distance between themselves and others by waiting outside of the salon if another pet is being checked in and, when possible, we're scheduling pick-up times to limit the number of pet parents waiting for their newly-groomed dogs. We're also holding 15 to 20-minute windows between each grooming appointment to properly clean and disinfect the work area (counters, stations, and equipment) before welcoming the next pet. Visit to obtain additional up-to-date information on how Petco is helping protect people and pets during COVID-19, as well as helpful resources for pet parents.

With over 25 years of grooming experience, we continuously review and update our pet grooming policies, procedures and standards under the supervision of our Director of Veterinary Medicine, with counsel from several independent experts in animal care, behavior and ethics. 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 well-being of pets everywhere, and we continue to work with other pet industry leaders to encourage industry-wide adoption and adherence to them.

Walk-in services are unavailable for online booking. Please visit a Petco near you for our walk-in only services.
