Why hire a mobile dog groomer through Airtasker?
Dog grooming is a part of responsible pet ownership, but it’s certainly not a walk in the park. Whether your dog is the type that needs regular haircuts or has simply never gotten used to the groomer, it would certainly help your pet (and you) to create a more comfortable grooming environment. And that’s where Airtasker’s mobile dog grooming service comes in.
When you book a mobile dog grooming specialist via Airtasker, the groomer comes to your house or yard - a familiar environment for your pet compared to a salon. Since the Tasker is from nearby, you’re more likely to find someone who can come ASAP and can find your place easily.
Also, when you post a pet grooming task, you get to specify your budget and your pet’s needs and share this with a number of potential groomers. This means a higher chance of working with someone whose rate is tailor-fit to your need. Ready to try a fast and easy way to find mobile pet groomers? Tap the “Post a task” button to get started!

Top Mobile Dog Grooming related questions
When you set an appointment with a mobile dog grooming service, they’ll come to your house with all the necessary tools. They’ll perform all the typical services you’d expect at a doggie salon or groomer - a wash & blow-dry, trim, oral care, nail clipping, and ear cleaning. Some may also offer flea treatments or anal gland expression. In your task post, indicate all that you need to be done for your pet so you can find the right Tasker easily.
Airtasker lets you find mobile dog groomers near you in mere minutes! Here’s how it works: first, tap the “Post a task” button and fill out the form. Tap “Get quotes”, then wait for offers from nearby and available Taskers. Please choose the best groomer for the job based on their budget and customer ratings, then tap to confirm your appointment. And just like that, your pet groomer will be on their way!
Pet grooming vans in countries like the UK don’t need a licence to operate. This makes it pretty easy to set up shop, but it should also make you more careful and wary as a pet owner. Besides going through the Tasker’s customer ratings and reviews, try observing your mobile dog groomer as they handle your pet - after all, this appointment will be happening right in your yard or driveway. Make sure your pet is safe and comfortable throughout the appointment.
Introduce them to the sensations of being handled and touched on different parts of their body, then move on to tools like the brush, shears, and clippers. Start by holding the tool against their fur or nails, then move it against their body. Reward your pet for good behaviour. On the day of the appointment itself, stay near your pet, and reward them with their favourite food or toy so that they associate the groomer’s visit with these treats.

What do mobile dog grooming services include?
Airtasker’s mobile dog grooming service covers pretty much everything you’d expect at a regular dog grooming salon or any other pet grooming van: a wash, blow-dry or towelling-off, a trim according to your specifications, oral care and ear cleaning, and nail trimming. These may vary slightly depending on the Tasker you choose to work with, plus your pet’s own needs. But in general, here’s what to expect once the grooming service arrives at your door:
Bathing your dog
Usually, a dog grooming session starts with a bath, though you can choose to skip this step (e.g. if you’ve already given your dog a bath, or they can’t have one just yet due to vaccination or illness). Your Tasker may use their preferred brand of shampoo, or you can provide your own. Once your pet is bathed, the Tasker towels them off or blow-dries them and brushes their fur.
Haircut and nail trimming for your pet
Next, the Tasker gives your dog’s fur a trim. This can be as simple as shaving and trimming excess fur on the paws and stomach, or as major as shaving off most of their fur. If you have a specific request for your dog’s haircut, make sure to tell your Tasker before they reach for the shears and razor. If necessary, your mobile pet groomer will trim your dog’s nails, or advise you if they’re still too short to be trimmed.
If it’s your pet’s shedding season, they’ll benefit from some extra brushing time to speed up or minimise shedding indoors. Of course, this is a natural part of life with your furry friend and can easily be fixed by regular home and upholstery cleaning.
Ear cleaning and tooth brushing
Grooming also includes cleaning your pet’s ears and teeth. Your Tasker will use special tools, such as an ear cleaning solution, a pet toothbrush, and a pet toothpaste. Ideally, your dog should have their own toothbrush in your home. Oral bacteria can be spread when toothbrushes are shared by different pets - it’s just as gross for them as it is for us humans!
While not all Taskers offer this service, some may do so. If you have the type of anti-flea medicine that needs to be applied after a bath, you can ask your Tasker to do this for you. This extra step keeps your pet safe from parasites, prevents the spread of disease across pets, and prevents the need for pest control.
Your pets aren’t the only ones who can benefit from Airtasker’s mobile grooming and beauty specialists - furmoms and furdads can also book mobile barbers and blow-dry specialists who’ll make sure you look just as good as your newly-groomed pet!
