I also do housecall grooming in Austin after working in a salon for too long. I love it and thanks for this blog. I have the orange dryer and need to upgrade for the bigger dogs. I also have a folding table. "As long as you are confident in your skills and know how to communicate, it is possible to groom a dog in the owner’s home easily and comfortably." << Well put!


I do house call grooming in New York City and I love's so great to find this place, thanks for the blog!

I live in an entire group of little cities that are all semi or retired folks and even thou there are several grooming shops feel this can work to get me an income I can live on.
