Dog groomers, what do you wish you knew before opening your shop?

I am here to learn.


I cant communicate with you via comments, but I want to say i used to be a dog trainer, and im excited to use what I know, alongside grooming.

    I learned to groom long after I went to school for dog trainers.  I specialized in aggression training.  When I opened for grooming I was only doing Vet referrals cause I specialized in problem dogs, then the public found me & the understanding of aggression I could do dogs that other groomers would not do.

    I do think that dog groomers should know more about canine behavior before they learn how to groom so that they would have an understanding as to why the dog is behaving the way it is & what to do about it.

    I had NO idea how expensive liability insurance is and how little it covers.  That was a very big shock!
