• Are you an experienced groomer with a love of animals? • Do you want the flexibility of mobile grooming without having to put down $15,000 for a brand-new van? • If you are already a house-call groomer, are you frustrated with how things are going and ready to throw in the towel?

As a house-call groomer, you are more than just a groomer. You’re taking on the role of business owner, secretary, pet nurse, Ms. Or Mr. Fix-It, psychic, and even nutritionist. There’s a lot to learn! With chapter focuses that include Getting Down to Business, Equipment, Marketing and Advertising, and Routing/Scheduling/Zoning, this exciting read will teach you everything you need to know, from how to choose a creative business name, to what to charge clients, to what to bring with you on each grooming trip.
