LONDON, April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The owner of a top dog grooming salon in London is sharing his experience in a series of free videos: How to Set Up and Run Your Own Dog Grooming Business.

Kristian Maris is the co-owner of Just Barking in Kensal Rise, London. He is chairperson of the newly-formed British Isles Grooming Association (BIGA), a speaker at pet industry events, an Amazon UK No. 1 best-selling author in dog care, and creator of The Dog Grooming Business Course: How to Set Up and Run Your Own Dog Grooming Business.

"So many people are looking for opportunities to work for themselves" says Kristian. "But they want to do something meaningful, at a community level. If they have a passion for dogs - and they're not afraid of hard work - dog grooming could be an ideal career or business."

In the first of his free video series, Kristian identifies the three critical factors you'll need to know before you even think about running a dog grooming business. You don't need to be a dog groomer to run the business, but you need to appreciate what dog grooming involves.

In the second video he identifies the five steps you'll need to take to get started. In following videos he lists the seven critical marketing strategies for your business and reveals the number one most powerful marketing strategy for a dog grooming business.

Just like the increased demand for good quality dog food, more and more pet owners regard regular grooming as beneficial to their dog's health and welfare.

"Dog grooming is, essentially, recession-proof," adds Kristian, who opened his business in London in 2009, during the severe global economic downturn.

"Dogs are increasingly seen as members of the family. When times are tough, we might spend less money on shoes, cocktails, or travel. We become more home-centric in our behaviours - and that includes making sure the family dog is taken care of with regular grooming."

This is good news for anybody who has ever dreamt of being their own boss and running their own dog grooming business.
