According to the most recent American Pet Products Association’s National Pet Owners Surveys, there are approximately 63.4 million households in the U.S. with at least one dog and 89.7 million total dogs. There are also about 42.7 million households in the U.S. with at least one cat and 94.2 million total cats. Going mobile empowers pet groomers to better serve pets, pet parents, and themselves.

Pet grooming is an incredibly important type of preventative healthcare for pets. Bathing, hair cutting, nail clipping, ears and eyes cleaning, teeth brushing, flea and tick treatment, etc. are all hygienic care services that can significantly impact the wellness of a pet. As pet parents become more aware of the preventative healthcare benefits of pet grooming as well as the many advantages that mobile pet grooming provides, they will increasingly seek out pet groomers best capable of meeting their needs. The Covid-19 pandemic has only accelerated this growing trend. As a pet groomer or business owner, how are you positioning yourself or your business for future growth and success?
Crunching the Numbers
Breakeven monthly on your 34th dog, at a minimum of $95 per dog within the first week. The other three weeks are your profit.
Averaging 6 dogs per day at $95 per dog and working 5 days per week (22 days per month), you will generate $12,540 monthly or $150,480 annually. Subtract your overhead expenses and your profit would be $9,395 per month or $112,740 per year plus tips!

“I have owned my Wag’n Tails Pet Stylist Elite for over two years. I have a waiting list of new clients and plan to buy my second Pet Stylist Elite this year. My Wag’n Tails vehicle conveys the professional image that clients appreciate and have come to expect from my premium at-home grooming service.”
“Being a mobile groomer is great for numerous reasons. Some of the top benefits for me are: setting my own hours, working when I want to, and making as much money as I need. Another big plus is that the Pet Stylist Elite is really fun to drive!”
“There is life after the salon! My Wag’n Tails vehicle has proven to me that there is indeed life after the salon. I have rediscovered my craft in a relaxed and stress-free atmosphere, and I can now give my full attention to the pets in my care and their owners rather than to the ringing phones, client distractions, or daily commotion of a busy salon.”
“When I was 19 years old, I told my parents that I wanted to be a dog groomer. They told me to go out and get a real job. Well, after 20 years in corporate accounting, I spent my bonus on grooming school and now I have my very own mobile pet grooming business. I guess that I finally have a ‘real job’. I wish that I had done it 20 years ago.”
