setting up as a dog grooming from home

I wonder if anyone could please help. We have a house in Charente and hope to move out full-time in 2016 or 2017 the latest. I would like to set up as a dog groomer. I have researched the area a lot and after the sale of our English home we will have money to support us .
I really would like to either set up as a mobile groomer or via a summer house in our garden. I could actually offer both . At home I would be to groom only one dog at a time And of course the hours would be to it in with our neighbors as much as possible.
How do I apply for permission to do this ?

Re: setting up as a dog grooming from home

you might find interesting information here

or you might want to try and get in touch with the people here Dog grooming they wanted to do the same thing (the thread is a bit old now)


failing that, search for Toilettage Chiens as there are lots of forums out there with people doing the same thing (although it's all in French)

Re: setting up as a dog grooming from home


This is a fairly comprehensive insight. Notably, it says (and I'm paraphrasing a bit) That the market is more or less saturated and that increasing numbers of professionals are shutting up shop because they can't make enough money to cover their overheads.....
