Dog Grooming can be a very enjoyable work from home business if you love to care for pets. You can set your own hours and give pet owners a service they will appreciate.
Check with your local authorites to see about any business licenses and permits required for your business. Set up a LLC (limited Liability Corportation) and get liability insurance if needed. Stop by your local tax collectors office and get the required tax I.D. numbers.
Find a local wholesale supplier and buy the necessary professional grade tools and equipment. Such as bathing and flea dipping tubs, various soaps, flea powders and tools.
If you want clients to take you seriously as a professional dog groomer, then you must look like a professional, so always dress and look neat when picking up and delivering pets.
If you are not already a trained dog grooming professional, you will need to learn grooming and anatomy in order to take care of the pets in the way their owners require.
Many busy dog owners need someone to bathe and groom their pets, while being sensitive to the pet's behavior and needs.They are also particular who handles their pets, so make sure you are well trained and professional at all times.
I recommend training on dog behavior as well, especially if you are going to have more than one dog in the same room. Some dogs get stressed and uncomfortable when being groomed, and are hard to manage.
Other dogs may get violent and refuse to be touched. You will also need to have skills in dog bathing, cleaning of their teeth and ears, trimming their nails, as well as skin rashes.
Knowledge on products that will help with these skin problems will greatly increase your worth to your clients and create return customers.
The training at dog grooming schools, both in person and online, can vary from school to school. I have listed some of the criteria that you should expect from a quality school. See our helpful Dog Training Tools Section Below.
It should be an accredited vocation school that has been approved by the state so you should be able to expect better training. You should also be able to use the federal student loan program.
An in-person class should not have so many students that your hands on time with the dogs is short. Some schools will allow you to bring your own dog and give you a discount.
Quality schools should have a job placement department to help graduates find good jobs.
If you don't have the time or money to go to a hands-on school. There are online schools that will teach you much of the bookwork needed (see Recommended Training below). But you will still need some hands on training.
Consider getting a job at a local dog grooming service while you are studying. This will give you a professional to ask questions to as well as valuable hands on training. If jobs are not available, practice on yours and your friends dogs.
