    Extraordinary article! I would have to agree that I don’t think we will see the dog grooming industry being taken over by robots anytime soon. Pets are accepted in people’s homes as they fill a special human connection between animal and pet so having a robot to parts would be a contradiction of why we have pets to begin with. The costs of having a grooming franchise is intriguing. Do you know how much it would cost on average for someone to start their own dog grooming business without buying a franchise? Is it possible to start on your own or do you need to be part of franchise for licensing?

      There is no law that states you must be part of a Franchise but there are licences to be required  in Canada and the USA I have this in a previous post Thinking of Starting your Own Dog Grooming Business for the New Starter on average one would need to spend up to $1000 for the basics grooming tools tables and portable bath, at an estimate about 3,000 if you had a workshop from home fully equipped, it’s the leasing of the retail sector that puts the figures right up there and the Decor of your set up and its up to the individual of how fancy they want to be
