When it comes to tipping your pet groomer, it really depends on the level of service you receive and how often you go. If you are happy with the grooming your pet received and plan on using the same groomer regularly, then a tip is always appreciated. The standard tip is 15-20% of the grooming bill, but you can give more or less depending on how pleased you are. Some people also like to give a small gift, such as a box of chocolates or a gift card, along with the cash tip.
If you only go to the groomer every once in a while or are not overly thrilled with the grooming job, then a tip is not required but still appreciated. In this case, 5-10% of the bill or a small gift is sufficient.
So, to answer the question – do you tip at Petco? It is not required but appreciated, especially if you are happy with the service. The standard tip is 15-20% but you can give more or less depending on your level of satisfaction.
