The Most Important Rule for Every Dog Grooming Salon

The first question I ask the students of my dog grooming courses in the UK is whether or not they know the most important rule for every dog grooming salon.

It has the potential to change your dog grooming business radically.

All the work, time and effort that you have put into your career could all be transformed by failing to follow this rule.

Do you have this rule posted in your salon? Maybe on the bathroom mirror?

Do you have this rule imprinted on the brain of every member of your business?

If you were, right now, this very instant, to ask your staff – whether that is yourself, your receptionist, your dog groomer, your assistant, even the builder or electrician who is visiting your salon for a day – what the most important rule is, would they be able to tell you without hesitating?

The most important rule: Never, Ever, Let a Dog Escape.

It’s a simple rule. But boy is it critical to the success of our business.

If you don’t follow this rule, your business could be ruined.

Take a moment today to ensure that you are following it correctly. Here are a few recommendations that will help:

When a dog comes to you for grooming, always make sure the dog stays on the lead when being handed over to you.

The entry to your salon must be controlled. Make sure there is never a free passage between the salon and the front door.

Perhaps you use a baby gate or Dutch door in your salon. Make sure it is high enough and securely attached that a dog will never be able to jump over it or knock it out of the way.

After grooming, inspect the collar and lead to make sure they are secure. If the dog slips its collar on the way home, it will be your fault.

How about door handles? Dogs are clever. It’s hard for them to turn a round door knob. But some of them know how to push down a lever handle. Change the lever so that you have to pull it up instead of push down to open.

I know many of you are sticklers about this sort of thing, and I certainly am at my salon and with the students on my dog grooming courses here in London. So, good. I’m glad. We all need to be sticklers about this rule.
