  • scheduling bathers and groomers

    I have 7 employees, sometimes less. I notice some biz owners say groomers complain the bathers are not fast enough sometimes. Then you look at their scheduling and there is a pretty easy fix. My customers start arriving at 7 am, even before I get there usually. Receptionist opens and a bather. And then by 8 more bathers, usually 2. So when the groomer stylists first arrive at 9 am, they have finish work waiting for them. Never any backup waiting for dogs to finish.

            I think the issues arise when booking one on one. Bathers aren't effective in that case

              Good plan. Where we run into issues is when the clients drop off late, come all at once or there are several more ‘ labor intensive’ dogs then planned on.
              We solve it by pitching in to help bathe and brush out until everyone has 3 dogs in the queue and then the bathers are on their own while the groomers set to finishing.
              it works for us and keeps everyone feeling like a team.

                Very similar to us. This is another reason to have groomers that style only and bathers for all dogs.

                  Sounds like it works fine.
