We would like to assist you with starting your very own dog grooming business from home, please read on for a helping hand.

Mobile, salon, or home?

As previously mentioned, these are questions you have to consider and figure out. What will work best for you? When considering a mobile service you must think about:

●  If you’re able to travel conveniently and cost-effectively.

●  What your radius for business might be.

●  If your current vehicle is equipped enough for the job.

Some of the pros of mobile service are:

●  The overheads are smaller than a salon.

●  You can choose when you work.

●  Franchising opportunities.

Some of the cons of mobile service are:

●  You are limited by the size of your vehicle.

●  You can spend a lot of time driving.

●  You may have to work longer hours for sustainability.

A mobile service can be great, especially when you’re first launching your business as your chances of gaining new clients is higher, this is because this service will appeal to older people, people that can’t drive, or people who live busy lifestyles.

When considering a salon when starting your dog grooming business, you must think about:

●  Can I afford to open a salon?

●  Do I have the means to promote the salon and ensure its success?

●  Do I want to be stationed in one location?

Some of the pros of a salon are:

●  You can make a significant profit while owning a salon.

●  You can hire others to work alongside you/ open other salons if successful.

●  You can upkeep a routine.

Some of the cons of a salon are:

●  Your overheads are significantly higher than mobile or home.

●  More time will go into branding and promotion for the local area.

●  The salon will take more time to manage overall.

Running a salon for your dog grooming business can be an excellent opportunity and experience overall. It allows you to really grow something special and a chance to succeed significantly within the dog grooming industry.

When considering working from home for your grooming business, you must think about:

●  Do I have the space available?

●  Am I happy with clients coming to my home address?

●  Do I want to be stationary at home?

There is no reason why you can’t run your dog grooming business from home as well as include an element of a mobile service, and this is also something to consider, however, the pros of home service are:

●  Lowest overheads compared with mobile and salon.

●  You can choose when you work.

●  It's the quickest route to starting your new dog grooming business.
