    I have a dog walking client that has 2 dogs, a male lab and a female shih tzu. She called me today and left a message asking if I would bathe the dogs. I've never charged someone for washing their dogs before, what would y'all charge. She probably wants me to wash them at her house. I don't know yet though.

    Sorry this is a silly question but I'm at a loss here.

    I would say you should charge at least 5 dollars per dog.

    I would maybe call a local groomer and see what they charge to bathe the dog. I pay $50 per cat to have my Persian cats bathed and given a lion cut. I bathe my dogs myself. Maybe charge a little less that what a groomer would.

    It's $25 here so charge at least $10 per dog.

    I used to pay $25 per shih tzu...that would include untangling the knots, not cutting them out, but only if I had them done consistently...Not waiting 6 months until they were a ratty mess. I now pay $45 for my golden, same groomer...
