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.
