Technology: A Tour Through Time

How has technology impacted your business? To answer this question, let’s first take a journey into the halls of history of Pet Grooming Business and see how our industry has changed over time.

Single Point of Failure: Always Have a Backup!

If the power switch on your computer breaks, the rest of your computer is fine, but you cannot use it. If one wheel falls off your vehicle, you are not going anywhere. If you have one pair of clippers and they break, you can’t groom many of the dogs on your schedule.

Necessary Cat Grooming Tools: Physical & Mental

Who does not LOVE to buy new tools? Especially when you are at a trade show where you can try everything out!

If you have an emergency, being able to get immediate assistance can potentially be the difference between life and death.
