Training

Initial training is for 5 days; 3 at HQ and 2 in the field. After this, we guide you through the first 6 months working with you both in the field and remotely. We don’t expect you to be an expert in every area and there will almost certainly be at least one part of the business you’ll need more assistance with. All franchisees will be Grade 2 City & Guilds certified in Dog Grooming.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Barking Mad Professional Mobile Dog Grooming typical day involves meeting and grooming lots of different sizes and breeds of dogs for customers at their own home. Working from the privacy of your own relaxed and air conditioned van, it is a profitable business with repeat custom which is not seasonal as customers often book for the whole year. Barking Mad franchisees offer excellent customer service and benefit from word of mouth custom.
