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.”

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?

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.

Setting Prices

To price grooming services correctly, research costs and demographics, then calculate markup.

Up-Sell & Add-On

Many salons can make more money simply by offering add-on services and products.

Marketing the Salon

Every groomer should have a marketing plan that targets the local demographic and gets dog owners to walk through the salon’s door.

Groomers should know how to deshed and demat effectively, and what tools to use to accomplish these tasks.

Force Dryers

The right force or high-velocity dryer can save time, cut down on labor and increase a grooming shop’s bottom line.
