Want to Run Your Own Dog Grooming Business?

Put Yourself in the Picture - Can you see yourself working with dogs every day? Perhaps you have already decided you do and even have dog grooming experience. You may well be considering your options for becoming a dog groomer:

What are your options?

  • Groom from home - Do you have the correct facilities at your house? Would you feel comfortable with the general public coming to your own home? What will the neighbours think and do you have appropriate parking? Consider the costs of converting home space to a salon and facilities for safely kenneling dogs before and after grooming. You may need a licence from the council.

  • Get a job in a salon - Lower earnings and less flexibility. Your working conditions and environment will vary greatly from one salon to another. You will not have control and your reputation will be defined by where you work.

  • Hire space in an existing salon - Still working in someone else's salon although you are working for yourself. This can be expensive with a table often costing as much as 50% of everything you earn. Your flexibiltiy will be restricted and again, you will have limited control. Your reputation will be defined by where you work.

  • Set up your own mobile business - This is a great option as it gives you control and provides a high level of convenience for your customers. Running costs are low and you are in control. Do you know where to go for business support and advice whenever you need it? Sourcing your own van conversion, branding your business and putting together a system and feasible business plan will all be down to you. You will be on your own without the constant support of experienced small dog business advisors.

  • Join the Barking Mad team! - Barking Mad is simply all you need! We take care of everything so you can focus on providing a quality dog grooming service. This is a very exciting option working to a proven successful system under the national franchise brand leader in dog care.We provide a ready made package making it easy for you to get started running your own professionally branded mobile grooming business.
