Most people are familiar with the tradition of tipping at restaurants. But what about other service-oriented businesses, like pet grooming? Is it customary to tip your pet groomer, and if so, how much?
The answer may surprise you – yes, it is generally expected that you will tip your pet groomer! The standard amount is 10-15% of the total bill, just like at a restaurant.
Of course, as with any service business, there are always exceptions. If you have a regular pet groomer that you see often and who does an outstanding job, you may want to tip a bit more. Conversely, if the job is not up to your standards or if the groomer is rude or unprofessional, you may want to leave a smaller tip or no tip at all.
At the end of the day, whether or not you tip your pet groomer is up to you. But if you are happy with the service and plan to continue using that business, it is always a nice gesture – and appreciated – to leave a little something extra for a job well done.
Do you tip at Petco Grooming?
Yes, it is customary to leave a 10-15% gratuity for pet grooming services. However, as with any service business, the quality of service may warrant a higher or lower percentage.
