Short-Haired Dog Grooming

BY NICOLE IPSON | February 22, 2018

 

dogs

It is commonly thought that a short-haired dog doesn’t need a professional groom.  When people think about grooming the first thing that comes to mind is long-haired dogs. However, your short-haired dog’s professional groom is very beneficial!

Most short-haired dogs give the impression that they don’t shed quite as much as a long-haired dog. Or that they may even be easier to bathe because of the lack of length of hair. However, a lot of owners come to find that caring for their pup or slowing the surprising amount of shed their pup has to offer can be time-consuming. There are actually several double-coated dogs that have short hair.  Dogs such as Labrador Retrievers, Pugs (Certain Types), & Chihuahuas (Certain Types). Even though a dog may not be double-coated they can still tend to shed as well. Dogs such as Jack Russell Terriers and Boston Terriers can still give their owners vacuums a run for their money.dogs

Walk-in Services Or Quarterly Grooming Can Help With Your Short-Haired Dog

Whether your short-haired dogs are large or small, getting them groomed quarterly will help with a lot of issues. Owners tend to overlook basic needs of their short-haired friends because in some ways they can be so low maintenance. Outside of bathing needs groomers also tend to see owners overlooking the need for monthly nail clipping and ear cleaning.

Short-haired floppy-eared dogs such as Basset hounds. Beagles, & Mastiffs tend to present with ear infections more often. Monthly grooming

Pet Grooming Coupons and

General Maintenance

BY NICOLE IPSON | October 31, 2018

 

With the school season here and everybody preparing to get their children back in their routines, it’s easy to forget about the general maintenance of our pets. However, some things you can’t ignore in order to keep your pets healthy. Here are some things to keep in mind, and some new pet grooming coupons we have to help your furry friends if you don’t have time.

As a rule of thumb, your pet needs grooming every 6 to 8 weeks.

However, at times life can get in the way and we might not always have the budget to have our pets’ hair cut. So there are a couple of things that you can do. We talked about walk-in services. These services help with the care of your pet during tight budget times. Take advantage of these services to keep your pet’s ears and nails cleaned and trimmed once a month. This will make sure that your pets are at least protected against ear infections and that they are able to comfortably walk. This, again, will also help to make sure your pets quick doesn’t grow out. In turn, this will ensure your pet’s nails can be clipped as short as possible.

Along with general maintenance of the ears in the nails, you should also be aware of proper brushing.

If you have a long-haired pet, you should make sure that they are properly brushed them out at least once a week. Taking at least 15 minutes to do this can save you money on your next groom. Matting can cause several issues like bacterial infections, bruising to the skin, and open sores. Regular brushing is simple and helps to eliminate the risk of any of these issues occurring.  For more helpful pet grooming maintenance information please see ASPCA’s helpful tips.

Pet Grooming Coupons!

Here at Furtastic, we understand that the school season and it’s financial responsibilities come first. So this may cause you to put your Furry Friends care to the side temporarily. We would like to help make things more affordable. We now are offering coupons on our Facebook. These coupons have discounts for new customers, deep coat brush outs to help cut back on chatting, and haircuts! So give us a call today and book your appointment so we can help keep your furry friend in shape.  You can also visit our page on Facebook. Also as a side note, we would like to mention that our sign has come down off of the front of the building. We are preparing to move but we are still located in the same place currently. So even though you can’t see our sign from the street we are still here! We hope to see you soon!

8 Signs That Tell You It’s Time to Start Your Own Pet Business

Need a way to keep your dog clean then please keep reading below as they have some great tips and tricks to keeping your dog clean and looking smart . 

Of course if you need a professional dog groomer in Sydney then you can reach out and contact us as well and we will put you in touch with a mobile dog wash or grooming service

Many pet owners and a true fans of dogs dream of creating their own pet business. Given how the pet industry continues to grow at staggering rates, there’s always more space for ambitious people to get into. But how do you know when it’s time to start your own dog business? Here are the 9 signs I recommend you keep an eye on or work toward if you want to create a pet related business today.

1. You’ve grown sick of your current occupation.

Many of us grow tired of our jobs at some point; however, there’s a difference between becoming tired of your job and being absolutely sick of it. You should keep in mind that starting a new business is almost always much harder than it seems at first.

So while creating something of your own is a good way to leave your current occupation at some point, remember that you’re likely to work double shifts during the launching phase of your pet business.

2. You have an undying passion for pets.

You love your dogs and cats, but how far does your passion actually go? Do you simply like pets and enjoy spending time with them? Or are you willing to get up several hours earlier and invest that extra time researching and working towards something new? Creating a business often requires extraordinary levels of dedication, and you should make sure your desire matches what the business will ask of you.

3. You’ve identified a lack of a specific service near you.

The key to every successful business is locating the right opportunity. There’s little point in creating a business in a niche that’s already filled to the brim. Instead, look for pet related services and opportunities that are missing around you.

Is there a lack of fresh pet food in your area? Do you have a concept of a unique online pet service? Are there many pet owners in your neighborhood that are looking for dog walking or pet sitting services? It’s important that whatever you decide to work on has a customer base.

4. You have the financial means to do it.

Businesses require money even if you’re planning a small online enterprise at first. It may not require a huge investment but you want to make sure that your financial situation is stable enough before diving in. Having some savings or minor passive income set up can be a great benefit for any future pet business enterprise.

Having a financial stability will keep you calmer and more focused as you’re creating and establishing your new business. In a lot of situations it pays to spend a little more time securing your finances before you jump into the unknown.

To achieve such a financial stability, you need to adequately plan all your future expenses. You’d do best to calculate your startup costs, evaluate your future living expenses and consider your taxes. While doing all this, it’s wise to be as conservative as possible to compensate for things you might have missed.

5. You see a way to gather outside investment for the idea.

Depending on how big your business will need to be to sustain itself, you may need outside investment. Don’t just wait for an opportunity to fall in your lap – look around and research different opportunities.

You can review professionals’ profiles on social media, you can examine your potential customers for executives who might be interested in your offer, or you can make contacts in the industry or reach out to friends and family. Even crowdsourcing and crowdfunding sites can work, depending on your business idea.

6. You’ve gathered a vast amount of knowledge.

No business enterprise can be successful without the right know-how. If you’re simply fond of pets and have just looked after a couple of dogs or cats, you may not have the necessary knowledge to create something successful. However, if you have the extra skills and have done the research that others haven’t, it may be time to start putting it all to good use.

7. You’ve made helpful contacts over the years.

Most successful businesses are created on the back of good networking. Depending on what your business idea is, the type of connections you need may differ. Maybe some online bloggers and influencers to help you get your online venture on its feet? Or someone in logistics who can help you establish a delivery network in your area? Or maybe a vet, a shelter or a pet rescue center?

8. You’re comfortable with running a business.

As with any other business, it’s important to realize that regardless of the passion that drives you, there will be other activities that you’ll need to do as well that may not be as enjoyable or even pet related. Accounting, networking, finance, logistics, PR, and so on.

Additional tasks will vary from business to business, but you can be certain that simply “dealing with pets” isn’t going to be all you’ll need to do.
