How to create a successful self-service dog wash

The location : if you want to open an automatic self-service grooming, a room of the right size will be useful based on the volume of customers you plan to develop daily. An estimate of visits and users necessarily goes hand in hand with the choice of a welcoming, strategically competitive and well positioned place.

Furniture and equipment : the choice of the best tools will have to be your flagship and what will make the difference compared to other groomers. Not taking advantage of the work of a professional, the user will be led to choose your dog wash  only if he finds quality; convenience and cleanliness both in setting up the room and in the tools to be used (tubs, hair dryers, blowers, tables …). Remember that it may be useful to have special boxes or to create a suitable waiting room; display signs with instructions for using the  grooming tools  and vending machines for shampoo, detergents and perfumes.

Competition : a correct business plan or the choice of a high density and low competition area together with a good advertising campaign will give the right impetus to your business that can be launched in a short time and bear fruit as soon as possible. Even if it is a self-service grooming, at home or just a dog wash, having a fair passion for animals, a minimum of knowledge about dogs and their needs and grooming equipment will give an extra gear to your business and will immediately establish a relationship of trust between you and your customers; which, in presence, will ensure you a development over time and a word of mouth of fundamental importance.
