Is the reality of running a pet grooming business overwhelming?
Do you wish someone could tell you how to do it all?
Work smarter, not harder
with the Pet GROOMER© Business Programme
Does any of this sound familiar?
“I’m just a groomer, I’m not a business person.”
If your lack of personal belief in your abilities holding you back, you may have a SELF-LIMITING MINDSET.
“I’m no good with money”
If you need to reset your relationship with cash and get to grips with good money management in order to be more profitable, you may have a POOR MONEY PERSPECTIVE.
“I get so overwhelmed with everything there is to do with running a business,
I feel like I’m chasing my tail”
If you need better procedures in place so running your grooming business is systemised and organised, you may have a LACK OF EFFECTIVE BUSINESS SYSTEMS.
“I get so bogged down in the day to day I struggle to see the bigger picture”
If you can’t get perspective so that you can work on your business instead of just in it, you may have a LACK OF STRATEGY AND FOCUS ON GROWTH.
“I struggle to deal with criticism from customers and handling negative reviews.
I take it all very personally”
If you need to shift your perspective and instead focus on customer service so that any negative feedback is an opportunity to develop instead of a personal slight, you may need to CHANGE YOUR PERCEPTION OF CUSTOMER SERVICE.
“Keeping my diary filled is a constant struggle, I don’t know how other groomers do it”
If you you’re finding it difficult to reach new customers in order to get more dogs through the door, you may have a LACK OF MARKET ENGAGEMENT.
“I feel so isolated and like it’s me against the world”
If you need some cheerleaders in your corner to celebrate your wins and pick you up when things are hard then you may LACK AN EFFECTIVE SUPPORT NETWORK.
Luckily, there is an answer to all of these issues. Here. All in one place.
“Only gone and hit my highest ever week – £1,055! What would I have done if I hadn’t done this course? I’d still be winging it, underpaid and undervalued and hating my job. Thanks Bill.”

My mindset has completely changed. I no longer have FEAR nor a FIXED MINDSET. Bill you have helped me save my business and I can’t thank you enough.

Industry-specific coaching for pet groomers
Most generic business coaching programmes are designed to improve your business skills fine-tune your processes and deconstruct the barriers, real and imagined, that might be getting in the way of you achieving your business goals. That’s great. Except for one word: GENERIC.
If you’re reading this page right now it’s not because you’re looking for generic business coaching. Because your business is not generic. Nobody’s is. You need a business coach who understands your business. I’m Bill Betts and that coach is me.
With 16 years of experience in running a successful pet grooming business, I know what it takes to make a poor business good and a good business great. Because I’ve been there.
As an experienced business coach in this industry I’ve helped hundreds of people transform their businesses from the inside out and now I’m making my process available on a group coaching programme to reach more groomers than ever before and overhaul the pet grooming industry, one groomer at a time.

What does GROOMER stand for?
The GROOMER coaching programme model provides advice and guidance on every aspect of your pet grooming business. Check it out below
Many people in business are held back by their self-belief, or lack of! We will help you knock down the walls that may be stopping you and your business from growing right now, and help you to develop a growth mindset and the confidence that will help you and your business soar.
Review of current position and set goals
Where are you currently? An honest and no holds barred review of your business right now. By untangling the knots at this stage, you will be supported and guided in ways to address them.
Where do you want to be? Through the setting of personal and business goals, we will help you and your business move forward in a way that is sustainable and growth-focused.
Organised and systemised
Is paperwork a chore? Diary running away with you? We’ll introduce you to great methods to improve your productivity and efficiency, both with business organisation and the actual grooms, which ultimately means increased consistency, greater returns and a healthy bottom line. With recommendations for useful software, easier appointment management, how to bundle services to earn the most money and how to introduce new, profitable services that your customers will love!
Outstanding customer service
We pride ourselves on our standards of customer service and outstanding care for the animals brought to us. By focusing on the needs of the animal first, you will establish a position of authority and trust to your customers. It might sometimes be tough but standing up for your values and doing what is right for the pet is always the most important thing. Think of those matted pets, young pups or geriatric animals. What is best for them? By learning how to have tricky conversations and covering yourself with the right paperwork you can create customers for life.
This is often the scary bit, but it needn’t be. This module covers the practicalities such as good bookkeeping practices and when you need an accountant. You’ll also get tips on handling your money- think business bank accounts, taking payments and cash buffers (hint: the last one is extra important right now!). But maybe the most important element is pricing and understanding how to charge your worth. Do you want to earn a healthy living or always waiting for the next groom to get you by? You’ll learn how participating in a pricing race to the bottom benefits nobody (not even your competition!) and how charging fairly is not only okay, it is fundamental to a successful business.
Engage your audience
More than ever, social media and traditional media channels are an essential tool in the development of a growing business. It is no longer enough to rely on recommendations or passing trade. Getting your ideal customers to see and hear you is so important and we will show you how to use those tools and platforms that will boost your message, establish you as a trustworthy and reliable business and bring customers to you time and again. As an area that many people immediately greet with anxiety, feeling the fear and doing it anyway will set you apart from the competition and bring you front and centre of people’s attention if they are looking for grooming services in your area.
Going it alone can be scary, so we’ll be there to cheerlead you as you take your first steps towards a bigger and better business, helping you out if you suffer a crisis of confidence or something goes wrong. This is where we watch the results roll in and we’ll be there to support you through any adjustments that might be required to keep you on track.
Sound like something you want to get on board with?
Why do I need coaching?
You’re an amazing groomer. Your clients are happy with your services, you work hard to make those dogs (cats/rabbits/something else furry) look perfect and you really care for the animals in your charge.
Well done. That’s step one of running a successful pet grooming business. But only step one.
If your business is taking more out of you than it’s providing, if it’s draining instead of energising, if it’s losing money instead of making it, then it’s time to take a look at how your business is being run. Because running a successful pet grooming business is more than simply being an amazing groomer.
Unless you’ve been to business school, grown up in a thriving family business or had coaching or mentorship from successful business owners already, the chances are you don’t know the best way to run a business.
Because honestly, how do you expect to know this stuff? Guess work? Intuition? Trial and error? Finding out the hard way? There is an easier route to business success.
“The programme has ignited the excitement and drive I felt when I first started out 10 years ago. It has also inspired me to work smarter, not harder… Bill and the other mentors have made me see a better way, a more profitable way forward. I have already made changes that have seen more income, and more products being bought. I’m determined to develop and grow, and earn more money. I’m excited for the future and so grateful that I met Bill when I did and took the plunge to join the programme, I have no regrets.”
Investing in yourself and your business
By investing in yourself you are investing in the future success of your business. Choosing the Pet GROOMER© Business Programme, you’ll not only get actionable advice, reliable support and reassuring accountability, but it’s all for pet groomers. No other students allowed.
You might tell yourself that you can’t afford coaching. That you’re barely making ends meet. And then moan about the fact that you can’t develop and grow your business like others seem able to.
You may have the best grooming kit on the market. The latest model super-silent 10 second dryer. A smart uniform for your staff. All great investments in your business. But investing in something less tangible such as guidance, support and mentorship suddenly seems risky.
It’s time to shift that mindset.
The one single thing that successful entrepreneurs, CEO and business owners worldwide have in common is mentorship. Of investing in their own development with someone that knows more than they do. Someone that gave them the hard truths that protected them from costly mistakes. Someone who showed them what a successful business looks like from the inside and gave them the pathway to get there in their own business.
The Pet GROOMER© Business Programme makes mentorship more accessible and affordable for pet groomers like you to nurture and grow their grooming businesses without the price tag of one-to-one mentorship.
“I feel from the support I have in this group that I work for a large corporation again. That is, I have colleagues and friends who understand. Also people who totally have your back… Thanks Bill. I mean it from the bottom of my heart. I needed this.”
