If you love Pets, think you could offer Pet Grooming services and have some great ideas, this could be the business opportunity for you. The market for Pet Grooming services is one of the most under-serviced sectors in the UK, Dog training comes a close second with a lack of operators in this market.
With an estimated 8.9 million Pet Dogs in the UK and the UK Pet market estimated to be worth 4.4 Billion. The answer to why this is such a popular market is simply because we love our Pets, 2018 has seen more revenue spent on Pet gifts than ever before and if you are a Dog owner you will almost certainly agree, your Pet deserves the absolute best and as a nation we are prepared to spend whatever it takes to achieve this.
If you want to enter this market think you could make a difference and have some great business ideas, there are courses in Pet grooming starting from £1200, although this may seem steep initially, its a small price to pay to open the door to a potential lucrative small business idea.
There are many ways to start and maintain this business idea, many operate a mobile Pet grooming business where they travel to different homes, maintain repeat customer business and build a reputation. If you want to have a station and a base, you could rent a small space in a populated area and offer other services such as Pet Gifts, Pet accessories including Pet Clothes and Grooming accessories.
There are many sectors that will need more people to operate within them for 2019 and some of those may surprise you. Amongst those are Dog and Pet Grooming including Dog Training, Catering services, personal training and house cleaning.
