    Default Phoenix Groomers free for all

    A few months ago I posted that Maricopa County had fairly strict guidelines for mobile groomers that required yearly inspections and restrictions even on where you dump your water. Well, apparently the fine folks down at the county health department got together and effective 3/21/18, the Board of Supervisors approved a code revision that would no longer require Pet Shops/Groomers to be permitted by the Department https://www.maricopa.gov/3984/Healthy-Environments

    You can download the full report from the board of supervisors here https://www.maricopa.gov/Search?sear...port%203-21-18 ( I understand some of the reasoning, but not all)

    So as of right now, there is no licensing requirements or regulations of any kind required to open up and operate a Mobile or Brick and Mortar pet grooming salon. Theoretically, anyone with a pair of clippers and an apron can hang a sign up and run a muck. The horror stories have already been plentiful here in Phoenix, and this is, imho, not a step forward for Phoenix (Glendale, Peoria, Tempe, etc) but 2 steps back.

    Wow it's usually more and more, and yes more regulations.

    It is pretty much like that anywhere in the US with some few exceptions. I bet thousands of grooming businesses do no inspections at all.

    I agree with 1mobilgroomer. We get inspected off and on. Years ago the Humane Society would come out. They havenít been out in probably 35 years. The Fire Department used to come out. They did that for a few years. Havenít seen them in probably 10 years.
    Of course, they are looking for stuff that has nothing to do with grooming. Anyone with a pair of scissors can open a shop around here. No experience necessary.

    10 years in business here and no van inspection. Just need paper business license anyone can get. There's no industry standard on grooming vans. You are free to build to your liking.

    I think things will go fine Sandy, maybe they are just streamlining what they can afford to manage and sticking with critical things. What they were doing doesn't offer the protections of vocational licensing and still no states in US do that.
