Why pet grooming?

90 million households in the US have pets, according to the AAPA.

66,200 job openings for animal care and service workers are projected each year, on average, over the next decade.

$9.7 billion is estimated to be spent on non-vet services for pets, including grooming, in 2021, according to AAPA.
