Full Answer

On average, groomers normally earn about half the retail price of a grooming. This can vary significantly, depending of the services offered. Mobile groomers tend to see fewer clients per day, but because of the convenience they offer, they can often charge more. Also, if they are self-employed, they keep the entire cost of the grooming rather than only receiving a percentage. While independent salons typically pay by the dog, large grooming chains often pay a comparatively low hourly rate.
