I don't have dog people, do everything myself. When we did work with a trainer, to tell the truth, I never even thought about tipping her. She was great, but made plenty from me. If I had a groomer, yes I would tip them.

I baked some dog treats and wrapped them up nice for my trainer this year at the end of our training session before the holidays. I don't tip her money though, and I volunteer and work for her sometimes, so it's a weird relationship there.

I took Recon to the groomer's two days ago for the experience of having someone else do it and handle him (since it's always me!) and I tipped $3 on a $15 bill. Just like I would my hair stylist.

As a "groomer" (I trim nails at the dog park where I work in our grooming room) I get tips about 35% of the time. Some just a buck or two (the nail trim is only $5) and some are very generous. It's super nice, especially on crazy or aggressive dogs, but I don't expect it from everyone.

I don't really have any dog people but I know when I worked at a daycare and boarding kennel and even now at the pet supply store I work at, we LOVE when people bring us holiday "thank you's" Homemade cookies, pies, candies, we really appreciate it all At the boarding kennel we even had a regular that would bring us some beer that they made! We worked so hard and really loved all their dogs, it was nice to have some goodies to look forward too during the holiday shifts

These are super easy to make and are festive(if you can find the holiday shaped pretzels/Bonus!!)
Pretzel hugs;
place on double wax paper
bake at 200 til the hugs melt then put the m&m on it and chill. The only hassle is peeling the foil off of the hug.

I am "the dog people" (groomer), and I do appreciate the tips from my customers!

The only "dog people" I have would be my helper and I'm giving him a pup from Akela's breeding that should be ready to go home around Christmas. I think that one should be enough
