Rattling the Cage

The method in which grooming salons choose to contain animals speaks volumes about the service they are providing, so it’s best to choose wisely.

Re-fresher Course

Take advantage of the opportunity to sell products that keep pets fresh and clean between grooming visits.

Networking Karma

Networking can yield more than new customers and immediate sales–it can pave the way to a retailer’s most productive, long-lasting relationships.

Terrific Tools

Groomers need to take the time–and make the investment–to find just the right brushes and combs to suit their needs and get the job done.

Basic Training

Making sure all employees are well-trained makes for a happier, more competent staff–and a more successful business.

Tool Time

Pro-actively caring for grooming tools can save time and money in the long run.

Fancy Felines

For an existing salon, cat grooming is an excellent source of income with minimal investment.

Tubs and Tables

There isn’t one “best table” or “best tub” on the market, but there is equipment that will best meet an individual’s or a salon’s needs.

Medicated Shampoos and Conditioners

There are hundreds of shampoos and conditioners that have a medicinal effect on skin and coat.

Salon Marketing

Every grooming salon should use a variety of promotion methods to keep the business in the forefront of everyone’s minds.

Salon Software

Incorporating technology in the salon can make groomers’ lives easier in a variety of ways.

Training Canine Clients

Dogs that misbehave at the grooming shop can be handled with various means of restraint combined with a behavior-modification program.

The Finishing Touch

Showing appreciation to clients can be done in a variety of ways, with a free bow or bandanna, with great customer service or even with a simple “thank you.”

Grooming by Skin & Coat Type

Just as in the human beauty industry, there are products designed to enhance or reduce almost any feature and to alleviate any problem.

How to Be the Perfect Boss

A good boss acknowledges employees’ accomplishments–as well as their birthdays–and maintains a winning attitude even when they are having a rough day.

Equipment Maintenance

Keeping grooming equipment up to date will not only save time and money, it will also prevent accidents.

Purchase Decisions

When purchasing a salon’s high-cost basics, groomers may become anxious, but with a lot of research and some sound advice, there is no need to fret.

Creating a Spa Atmosphere

A salon that incorporates spa elements into its business is likely to increase its profits and raise its status in the community.

The Brush-Off

There are so many brushes and combs on the market; how does a groomer choose the right one for the task at hand?

Clip Art

Pet stylists should always have a variety of clippers in the salon so that they can choose the best option for the job at hand.
