Unlike other pet services like sitting and walking, as a groomer you’ll be heavily reliant on your equipment. The equipment you’ll need to purchase will also be significantly more substantial in size than with other professions.  

That’s why when it comes to grooming, your equipment should be treated as your number one prized possession.

When you’re first starting out, make a list of all the tools you’ll need to deliver your services. Here’s a list of what you’re likely to need:

  • A grooming table
  • A bathing station
  • A dryer
  • Dog grooming clippers
  • Brushes and combs
  • Scissors (single-sided thinning scissors, small straight scissors, medium-sized straight scissors, long straight scissors)
  • Grooming shears
  • A stripping knife
  • Nail clippers
  • Shampoos and conditioners
  • An ear cleaning kit
  • An eye cleaning kit
  • Dog crates
  • Towels
  • A vehicle
  • A washing machine and dryer

Money can be tight when you’re first starting out, but it’s worth investing in high quality (and of course, pet friendly) products and equipment that will give you longevity as a petpreneur and allow you to carry out a high-quality service that will keep customers returning time and time again.
