1. Show Off The Popular Dog Hair Cuts You Do
Some of your dog grooming clients will come to you with no a clue of the kind of haircut they want for their dog while other people will. But with both of these clients, we need to ask questions and sometimes show them pictures of what they might want.
For me, a lot of people come in saying they want a puppy or teddy bear cut or just the simple short cut. All these cuts come with different features, so go over what each cut entails, too. Some people might not know that the short cut will probably be short—and I mean short. Or that the puppy cut usually has a round head and is longer in length than the body.
Pictures of these cuts also show your clients how well cleaned up and neat your grooms are. It shows them that they are in good hands, and they shouldn’t be worried about their dog’s hair not coming out the way they want. This way, you know for sure what they want, and you don’t have to second guess yourself.
2. What Makes You Different from Other Dog Groomers
Potential clients who look over your resume and portfolio are probably going to wonder why they should hire you and not someone else. What makes you stand out than the rest of the candidates? If there are any little things that you do that you think no one else can do, put it in there.
If you have a certain breed standard cut you like and you’re good at it, put it in there! I’m sure there are tons of services or habits that you do that sought after so don’t be afraid to toot your own horn a little.
