The Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Start Your Own Mobile Pet Grooming Business
Perhaps you currently work in the pet grooming industry and think that you could do it better, have more to offer or want to expand your skills and knowledge.
This is your way to turn your passion into a rewarding business!
Do you love animals and pets and wish you had a job where you could interact with them every day? If the answer is yes, then a pet grooming business might just be for you!
Pet grooming is one of the most common utilised pet services. People love their pets just like they love their children, and having their pooches professionally groomed is a service many are more than happy to pay for. Many pet owners also don’t have the time, ability or desire to groom their own pets.
Starting a pet grooming business may be the perfect solution – you can build a business polishing and pampering fellow pet owners’ animals. And with the increasing pace of life, we are seeing a rise in popularity for mobile pet grooming services.
Over recent years, we’ve worked with many individuals starting up their own pet grooming business, and we’re frequently asked the same question:
“What will I achieve in starting my own pet grooming business?”
There are too many benefits to list, and everyone has different things that are important to them. We’ve got 25 year’s experience helping people start pet grooming businesses, so we listed the top 5 reasons why people start pet grooming businesses.
The feedback we most often get though is:
“I am now doing something I truly love.”
Let’s look at the top 5 reasons we’ve seen over the last 25 years.
Turn Your Love Of Animals Into Your Own Business And Income
Do you often wish you could find the right business venture for you – one which you are truly passionate about and makes the best use of your skills?
The feedback we most often hear from franchisees is that they have been able to turn their love of animals and pets into a profitable, scalable business. If you have a passion for animals and would love to spend all day working with them, this could be the business venture for you. Life feels easy when it’s doing something you love, and working with animals each day is a truly rewarding experience.
There are limited professional jobs working with animals – vet, zoos and animal shelters – and getting into these types of occupations can be difficult and require some qualifications. The beauty of starting your own business is that this is a way for you to side step this and get right into the industry.
James’ Home Services has helped numerous people just like you in setting up their business. Because of the growth in demand, there is also the opportunity to scale up quickly. Your growth is only limited by how much you want to develop, learn and expand your skills.
People love their animals but love their own time too
People are so busy these days – work, family, hobbies – and spending time on the weekend grooming their pet just feels like another chore to add to the list. Along with this, many people aren’t exactly sure of the right way they should be grooming their pets and so prefer to use a professional groomer.
More and more people these days also have multiple pets, meaning the time to groom them would take up even more of their weekend!
Mobile Pet Groomers are In High Demand
Australia is a “pet loving” country, and just about every household has a dog or cat or two (or three). But with the demands of modern life, such as full-time work, hobbies and children, most households find they don’t have the time to groom their pets.
The beauty of a mobile pet grooming business is that you go to the customer, and your potential to grow is as far as you want to travel. Pet owners live busy lives, so home grooming means minimal disruption to their daily schedule. Mobile pet grooming also appeals to people with mobility issues or the elderly – and with the aging population, there are only more people in this demographic needing “in-home” services.
It’s a recurring service (pets need regular grooming) creating the perfect business model – a repeatable service offering that will be required again and again.
Specialising in one industry means you’ll become a specialist, forcing yourself to learn quickly. And while it can be tough in the beginning and takes time, it will pay off! These skills become invaluable thoughtout your life and in running your business.
Increase Your Income and Improve Your Financial Position for You and Your Family
Over the last 25 years of running James’ Home Services, one of the biggest motivations people have in starting their own mobile pet grooming business is to generate more income. Many of our franchisees wanted to turn their passion for animals into a full-time profession.
They felt unmotivated turning up to the same old job every day, or they had been out of the workforce looking after children or other family members and were finding they weren’t able to earn a decent income. Their opportunities were limited, or they could only find jobs paying minimal wages or part-time hours.
Does this sound like you? Do you feel like you’re not reaching your potential?
By working for yourself, you get to be in charge. You set your prices, manage your own schedule and pick which jobs you want to take on. How much you earn is down to how much you’re willing to work. What’s more, as the owner you get to keep all the profits and maximise your income potential.
Your efforts, energy and passion for your work will directly relate to how much money you earn. Depending on your goals you can also branch out into other services, such as pet sitting, training or walking, just to name a few.
Save your tax
Not only that, having your own business can help you save money on tax and increase your income even further.Your business can pay for your travel, phones, internet, home office costs or car repayments.
In this way, having your own mobile pet grooming business can dramatically increase your income and improve your financial position. Don’t get me wrong, you’ll have to work hard to get there, but you will be rewarded for your efforts.
With the right guidance and support, you can create a mobile pet grooming business that will give you the income you’ve dreamed of and enhance your lifestyle along the way, all while doing something you love.
You Get To Be Your in Control and Be Your Own Boss
At James’ Home Services we’ve heard numerous potential business owners say they are sick of working for someone else; someone else who doesn’t know what they are doing or who takes them for granted. They have this nagging feeling that if they just took the chance on themselves….
Until, in the end, they get sick of working for others and decide to take control of their lives and start their own mobile pet grooming business.
The beauty of running your own pet grooming business is it enables you to provide a more personalised service to your clients and focus on their individual needs. You don’t need to work regular office or retail hours; you can service your customers at a time that suits you.
If you’re working for someone without much recognition, feel like you’re not getting a chance to pursue your passion or feel like you’re stuck in a menial job, then starting your own pet grooming cleaning business may just be the answer for you!
Having your own business means you get to be the boss – you control your hours, find the work/life balance that suits you, best of all, make your own decisions as to the direction of the business. Because of the nature of this type of business, it offers the freedom that only a mobile service can offer. You can easily run your business from home, using a fully equipped vehicle.
Your schedule, your hours
You get complete control over your hours and when you work, and the time and effort you put into working goes directly towards building up your OWN business, not someone else’s.
You can decide what your goals and vision for the business are. Would you like to develop a customer base only for yourself, or do you have huge plans to build up a business with multiple employees and lots of clients? The best thing is your future is in your hands and you can make your business whatever you want it to be, for however, it suits you.
There is nothing quite like the feeling of achievement and satisfaction from knowing you set out to do something and all your effort and hard work has paid off.
Build Your Own Business With Pride and Enthusiasm

Do you turn up for work every day feeling unmotivated or like something needs to change, or that you have lots of ideas but no one is listening? A pet grooming business could be just for you. You’ll get pride and fulfilment from delivering a professional and enthusiastic service and job.
We often get feedback from franchisees that when starting their own business they are pleased to be able to use the James’ Homes Services name from day one – providing that instant brand recognition.
There is nothing quite like the sense of accomplishment from building and managing your own business. The feeling of achievement from knowing you set yourself a goal and you’ve built a business to where you want it to be is second to none. That you’ve taken a passion of yours and turned it into a scalable, profitable business -where you might even end up employing others to work for youis something to be pround of.
