  • Toenail Clipping - Grooming 101?

    Toenail Clipping - Grooming 101?

    By Barbara Bird
    Originally written June 2009 for her GroomWise.com Blog, and now archived here in Resources. Barbara's web site is www.bbird.biz. Please visit her site today. Copyright 2011 Barbara Bird All rights reserved To what extent is nail clipping the foundation of professional grooming? Are groomers expected to clip nails, no matter what behavior the dog(s) manifest? Is the stress of nail clipping a reason to not do it? These questions are running through my mind as I fume...

    Time and Pet Grooming Products

    By Barbara Bird
    Originally written June 2009 for her GroomWise.com Blog, and now archived here in Resources. Barbara's web site is www.bbird.biz. Please visit her site today. Copyright 2011 Barbara Bird All rights reserved I enjoy reading groomers’ descriptions of their bathing rituals, what products they use, the sequence they employ, and how long they let various products “set up” on the coat or skin. These descriptions are shared in the sincere belief that the ritual and ti...

    Salvage Work

    Salvage Work by Melissa Verplank, from her GroomWise Blog http://groomwise.typepad.com/melissa_verplank/. As many of you know, I'm a big dog person. Working on these large furry dogs that have a huge shedding problem is one of my favorite things to do in a grooming salon. I know, I know, call me crazy -- but I just love seeing the transformation in this type of job. Over the years I've gotten really quick with the process and rarely cringe, no matter what the size of the dog, nor the conditi...

    Cold Weather Options for Cat Grooming

    by Danelle German, CFMG, CFCG www.nationalcatgroomers.com Winter is upon us. For much of the world that means some rather cold temperatures. Clients who normally opt for the lion cut for their feline during the warmer months may be looking for some cold weather alternatives. Usually their goal is to cut down on shedding as much as possible. Along with shedding comes the all-to-annoying hair ball. Getting rid of both problems is a top priority for many cat owners, whether they live with a...

  • Pet Boutique with Grooming Department Business Plans

    Pet Boutique with Grooming Department Business Plans

    Since 2000 there has been a sharp increase in the number of pet boutiques with grooming. No wonder.

Pet boutiques, like pet salons and shops, are typically in commercial locations...

  • Shop, Salon & Spa Business Plans

    Shop, Salon & Spa Business Plans

    Let's start by saying that there is little difference in the term "shop" versus "salon." Most consumers sense the use of the term "salon" as being more upscale, and not necessarily a larger business than a shop. "Shop" is simply casual.

The term "pet spa" has been around for some time but its use is on the incr...
