Whiskers & Tails Franchise & Pet Grooming Academy, Mumbai

‘Whiskers & Tails’, pet grooming salon run by Irene James, has also ventured into an exciting and a lucrative business avenue of franchising pet grooming salon outlets throughout India. While Merylene Walekar, her younger sister plays the perfect groomer at the salon, Irene handles the business development of the same. Franchisees will be trained under their very own, “Whiskers & Tails Academy Of Pet Grooming”. This academy is ardent on training pet lovers and people passionate about animals. ‘Whiskers & Tails’ is currently offering guaranteed success and an attractive income option through their franchisee business platform and inviting participation for the same.

Over the years, many students have been preferring to fly abroad to learn pet grooming and the numbers have been increasing rapidly every year. As an initiative to promote pet salon businesses and education in this category as per International Standards, Irene decided to leverage the expertise and hence decided to bring in International Experts to India. Master Groomers will be flown in from Thailand, having more than 15 years of experience in the dog grooming industry to train our franchisee/students,” comments a very excited Irene.

Franchisee business owners will have complete support starting from hands on training to setting up the entire operations including guidance on time-tested tools and supplies, through this programme. “Certification in pet grooming from Whiskers & Tails Academy Of Pet Grooming will add great value to the course,” remarks Irene. The Thai Groomers who will train in Mumbai are accredited by media from local and international level in more than 500 grooming articles and shows. Some of these media houses include reuters, CNN, AP and Hong Kong television. These groomers are currently running most pet grooming shops in Thailand. They are guest lecturers in basic grooming class, business administration and pet business in well known universities of Thailand. They have also organized and been show consultants of various dog shows in Thailand.

The investment includes opportunity to work and explore under this brand. Master designs, artworks, conceptualization for salon set up (sign boards, designs and stickers) along with 50 hours of training will be provided in Mumbai, with a flexibility of extra hours in practicals at the salon itself. Required equipments to manage the salon will be imported from US, few of which will have a five years warranty. Whiskers & Tails currently manufactures their own groomers’ bath tubs as per international standards and hydraulic grooming tables are in the making. The salon has also tied up with a grooming brand that is not available in the market to use their products in the salon.

The training is limited only to four to six students in one batch. “The only criteria to participate is to be an ardent dog lover with loads of patience and oodles of passion. The individual could be the franchisee himself or someone nominated by the Franchisee to work at the franchised salon.” says Irene. Other requirements for joining include a 250-300 sq. ft shop space with ample water supply which can be owned or rented. “During the training, the students will be well taken care of in terms of accommodating/lodging and meals in serviced apartments. Everything is well planned out,” shares Irene.

Additional support right from training on client/groomer relationship, customer service, post sales service to clients to
scheduling appointments and periodical advertisements by means of pamphlets, newspapers and magazines will be provided. The training programme sure looks like a promising and a much needed career option. Join today and accomplish
your passion.
