Can you groom 31 dogs in a month, at a minimum of $75 per dog?

You only have to groom 1.3 dogs per day to break even. Every dog you do beyond that goes straight to your
bottom line!

Gross Monthly Income

Averaging only 6 dogs per day at $75 per dog, and working 5 days per week(22 day month), you will be generating $9,900 per month or $118,800 annually. Subtract your overhead and your gross profit would be $7,755 per month or $93,300 per year plus tips!
