We are hoping to hire a second Holistic Groomer as soon as possible to accommodate everyone- especially for the upcoming holidays. Discovering talented Groomers has always proven to be the most challenging aspect of our business. By this point, it’s no secret that we are extremely selective when it comes to hiring a new professional Pet Stylist. This is due to the vast differences between traditional grooming and our much more thoughtful approach to interacting with live animals. We have found that gentle, unforced, respectful grooming conflicts with the old-school, main-stream practices and overall mentality that predominantly exists among potential new hires. Most graduates of accredited schools aren’t being taught about the importance of managing their Energy when grooming. And veteran groomers refuse to acknowledge that the industry has evolved. Indeed, staffing has always been a challenge.
As well, depending on the square footage of the new space, our plan is to expand Doggie Daycare and to start overnight boarding. There will be a need for additional personnel once we are established in our new location.
