Mobile Dog Grooming Franchise: What to Look for When Choosing a Franchise

Interested in owning a mobile dog grooming franchise? Learn what your options are, how these types of businesses can vary, and the best path to take to get you on the road to personal and professional fulfillment.

Pull Up for a Winning Opportunity

The amount people spend on their pets has been on a steady incline over the past several years. COVID-19 was one of the main reasons there was an increase in pet adoption throughout 2020. People will continue to spend money on their pets in the various branches of the growing pet industry, even as social distancing from the pandemic diminishes and brick and mortar businesses have reopened.

A mobile dog grooming franchise presents the best of both worlds for busy pet parents who want to pamper their animals and entrepreneurial business owners who want to tap into the pet care industry—the seventh largest and growing industry in the United States. Beyond veterinary care, food, and supplies, dog grooming occupies a corner of the pet care market that is valued at $9.5 billion.

Mobile dog grooming franchises can require less startup funds than brick-and-mortar locations while being a more convenient option for pet parents. By eliminating the need for a dedicated location, business owners can focus on caring for their four-legged clientele and turning a healthy profit.

If this line of business appeals to you, what should you look for?

Must Love Animals

Even if you, as the business owner, won’t be doing any of the hands-on grooming, it’s essential that you possess a love for our furry friends in all shapes, sizes, breeds, and even species (some groomers, like Aussie Pet Mobile, handle cats as well as dogs). In addition to a love of animals, it’s important that you have great people skills and are empathetic toward the relationships that your clients have with their pets, and how your business’s role can fit in.

Mobile dog groomers alleviate pet (and owner) anxiety by operating in a safe, familiar environment, as opposed to disrupting daily life.

A New Experience

Many dog grooming businesses operate the same way dog groomers did 20 or 30 years ago. And even mobile groomers often operate only a single van and can’t service multiple clients at a time. Most won’t work with cats, or elderly or aggressive dogs. Because of its go-to-the-customer nature, Aussie Pet Mobile is able to deliver a unique and convenient service that keeps customers coming back.

A Better Business Model

Aussie Pet Mobile employs energy efficient vehicles (lithium battery, climate-controlled Mercedes), addressing the needs of cats and larger and/or aggressive dogs, and dispensing the highest level of customer service available.

Each of our mobile pet grooming units is custom designed with air conditioning, heat, electricity, and water, and doesn’t need outside electrical or water hookups. The van’s spacious interior helps pets maneuver easily and enhances the Groomer’s ability to ensure all of the pet’s needs are met. Aussie Pet Mobile trained Groomers provide personal, 100% cage free, one-on-one attention to pets in the comfort of the pet owner’s driveway: ​

  • Reclaims the drive time to and from the shop​
  • Eliminates the drop-off & pick-up fuss​
  • Grooming wait-time is spent in the comfort of the home​
  • Reduces stress on pets and reduces stress on pet owners
