Re: Do You Tip At PetSmart for a $10 Nail Clip?

[ Edited ]

*When I bring our dog to the groomer for a nail trim only, I'll give her $2.00 or $3.00 as a tip.  Usually I'm just rounding up.  Right now, I'm having a brain cramp and can't remember if she charges $8.00 and I round up to $10 or if she charges $12 and I round up to $15.  It's one of the two. 

*When I bring our dog to the groomer for a bath, grooming, nails ($45 charge), I'll give her $10 as a tip.

*If I happen to have either a vet appointment or boarding reservation and he needs a nail trim, I'll get it done there and I do not tip.  I suppose I should give the owner of the kennel something, but neither DH or I think of it at the time because the owner has employees taking care of drop-offs and pick-ups and we don't always see her.  I'm sure she doesn't miss the couple of bucks and we are consistent customers, using her service many times throughout the year.
