The Inside Story

It is not enough to offer a shampoo that leaves behind a fresh fragrance and a clean coat; today's pet parents want products with ingredients they know and can trust.

The Power of Positive Reinforcement

Working together with the owners of canine clients on cooperative care and husbandry skills will help in fostering a less-stressful grooming process.

The Road to Wellville

Professional pet grooming can be physically and mentally grueling, so groomers must be proactive in taking care of their health to ensure long, prosperous careers.

Hot Tubs

There are many factors to consider when purchasing a pet grooming tub, from what it is made of to its functional features.

Hair of the Dog

Retailers can set their customers up with everything they need to address shedding and its messy aftermath.

A Refresher Course

Retailers have a lot to gain by offering a comprehensive assortment of between-bath sprays and wipes, and marketing their many uses and benefits.

Maintain to Sustain

Regular and proper maintenance is the best way to protect valuable grooming tools from wear and tear, and to keep clippers, trimmers and shears in tip-top shape.

All Ears

Retailers can simultaneously boost sales and promote pet health by supplying a strong assortment of ear-care products and raising customer awareness on the subject.

Nailing It

If done properly, quality nail care can enhance salon loyalty, recommendations and referrals—the lifeblood of every grooming business.

Dare to be Dry

As more pet owners take on home bathing, retailers have much to gain by ensuring their customers are equipped with the tools they need to get pets clean-and completely dry.

Claiming a Seat at the Holiday Table

As pet owners increasingly indulge their animal companions during special occasions, specialty retailers have the opportunity to capitalize on the growing market for holiday-related pet food and treats.

Table Talk

Salon owners need to consider several features when choosing a optimum table for both pets and groomers.

Right Tools for the Job

Offering pet owners the grooming tools they need, along with some valuable guidance, can help a retailer boost sales in the short run and gain loyal customers in the long run.

Arming the DIY Groomer

Retailers have much to gain from supplying customers with the tools and information they need to groom their pets at home.

Get Your Bling On

The extremes of creative grooming may be too much for the average pet owner, but a little bling can go a long way in attracting new grooming clients and encouraging added services.

Selling Solutions

Retailers can help pet owners address a multitude of skin and coat issues by offering a well-rounded assortment of products that address various conditions.

Clean-Up Crew

Retailers and grooming salons can both benefit from having a well-rounded assortment of shampoos and conditioners to meet a variety of pet needs.

A Clean Choice

When a groomer's end goal is to get pets thoroughly clean with a minimal amount of cost and effort, it helps to have the right products and equipment for the job.

Avoiding a Hairy Situation

Shedding is a common complaint among pet owners, but retailers and groomers are well positioned to provide them with necessary information and products to address the issue.

Winter Washing

A sudsy bath or even a trip to the groomer is not always ideal in the winter, but retailers can offer an array of bathing solutions and alternatives.
