As of 2015, Aussie Pet Mobile, Zoomin Groomin and The Pooch Mobile offer mobile pet grooming services in multiple U.S. states. Wag’n Tails designs mobile pet-grooming salons and provides training to business owners. The company originated as a pet grooming service and expanded to include pet resorts and the Michigan School of Cosmetology. While companies such as Aussie Pet Mobile offer franchising, Wag’n Tails is the leading supplier for independent mobile grooming businesses.
Aussie Pet Mobile franchises offer services for dogs and cats using the Luxurious Groom 15-step process, which includes massage, nail clipping, ear cleaning and paw pad trimming. The company typically performs a double-rinse, triple-brush, and a combination of hand drying and high-velocity blow drying. The groomers also offer special treatments, such as de-skunking, therapeutic shampoo treatment, teeth brushing and flea or tick baths.
Zoomin Groomin franchises use the patented Zipwash wand system for deep cleaning. The pressurized Zipwash conserves water while using a comb-fitted nozzle to push through fur and lift water off the skin. The company accepts dogs and cats, and it is affiliated with Embrace pet insurance.
The Pooch Mobile only handles dogs and offers bathing, ear and eye cleaning, brushing, and nail clipping in a standard grooming treatment. The company uses aromatherapy rinses to give canines a fresh smell and offers organic and therapeutic shampoos, such as pine tar anti-infection treatment.
