Introducing Grooming Business University

Working Together to Help the Pet Groomer Retire in Style

Before we tell you all that we offer, let's start with what we do not do:

Grooming Business University is not going to teach you how to groom dogs. 

There are plenty of online resources to teach you the skills to be a fantastic pet groomer.  We highly encourage you to continue to improve your trade and seek out this information to study.  The higher your skill set, the more rewarding your career will be. 

What makes GBU different is that we tackle the elusive business side of running and working in a grooming business....and we make it fun!   

Yes – this site is for both salon owners and employees alike.  We are a team in the shops and a team in improving our industry.


A simple search will show, there just isn't one place that teaches Pet Stylists how to run a grooming business….until now. 

Our mission is to provide you with the tools and resources to take a so-so career and make it phenomenal.


Our plan is a MODERN APPROACH helping to earn more money for:

* Yourself

* Your team

* Your business


With the goal of selling your business for 3 times more than you thought possible! 






We have a commitment to provide you with a clear-cut road map from: 


  * Start up 

  * Overcoming Challenges 

  * Massive Growth

  * Selling a Profitable Company

The cool thing is, you can jump right in at your current level! 


No need to sift through “How to Name Your Grooming Business” when you have 6 years under your belt!

If you are a:

* Groomer looking to open your own business

* Salon owner that wants to hire your first employee

* Struggling business needing help with finances

* Pet stylist that wants to see positive changes to our industry


You will have access to the information which is relevant to you now!






One more thing

The GBU team (aka The Falcons) are made up of full-time employees in the pet care field.  As you know, our jobs are demanding. Please be patient as we continue to build this site with new valuable products and content that can service you best. 

Which brings us to the exciting part –  



Let us know what information is relevant to improving your careers.  We will do our best to get it to you in a well researched, thought-out and fun way.
