Tipping Dog Groomers and Dog Salon Owners
Pet Groomers: To Tip or Not to Tip?
I used to be a waiter - and back then, made about $3 an hour. Most waiters and waitresses depend on tips to survive. Banquet waiters and hotel waiters usually, make a fair wage - do you tip them? At hotel parties, I don't tip if they pour a glass of wine like they are supposed to. I DO TIP when they do something special or go above and beyond their normal duties.
Do you tip your hairdresser? What if they own the salon and is keeping the whole $50 - do you still tip him? Some people feel since the employee is getting paid less, they should get a tip. So many questions about tipping. I found this great article online about tipping dog groomers, written by the owner of a grooming salon.
He says, " “Tips are not necessary, but they are appreciated. I leave the amount, if any, up to the customer." And just because he is charging $40 for a dogs cut - does not mean he gets to keep it all. He has expenses and overhead. Read the article here - it's very interesting!
