    I am in Scottsdale/Phx. I actually have decided to charge by the hour. I too was pregnant right after I started my business so building took a bit longer. I got my van Sept 07 and had my son Aug 08. But I am doing better now. I travel pretty far so I only groom 4-6 dogs a day. I average about 20 dogs a week and I don't work weekends.. I have a 3 year old and 18mth old and don't want to miss being with them. So for now, this works for me until they are in school..then I will probably do more dogs. I don't want to do more than 20-25 dogs a week. And I am booked 2 weeks out. You're prices are probably higher on the east coast than here. I should have PM'd you to discuss prices. lol I have found I am higher on some breeds than other groomers and lower on some breeds than others. I'm hoping my new hourly rate schedule doesn't kill my business, but I am tired of working twice as long on a dog and only making $10 more than a small dog that takes an hr.

    Good luck in whatever you decide and good luck with your pregnancy.
