  Pet Grooming Floor Plan Concepts CD

Tired of noisy, inefficient and stressful grooming spaces?
What is your floor plan missing?

CD + 85 Page User Guide $39.95

Note: All floor plans appear in the User Guide (twice). We also include JPG and PDF copies on the CD. We also provide "SDR format" files on the CD. If you acquire SmartDraw at your expense (www.smartdraw.com) you can load our SDR files and customize them. A free trial version of SmartDraw is sometimes available, and it has dozens of other business uses besides floor plans. If you don't acquire SmartDraw, you can hand draw or use other floor plan software to create your floor plans and use our materials to develop concepts for your project.

Our 85 page User Guide and CD provides you with truly state-of-the-art concepts to develop your custom floor plan. All floor plans are described below, some with samples. Our models include one person grooming businesses, to major pet care centers. Whether you have 300 square feet or thousands, we have plans for you, including home garage conversions.

Many thousands of groomers have never even heard of our superior design features, such as Silent Rooms, Noise Abatement Rooms and more surprises. In some models pet owners can enter and hear soft music playing even though 50 pets are on-site and dryers, vacuums and more equipment are turned on.

The CD includes files of all the floor plans, including copies with Line of Sight Safety Analysis. Our floor plans even include Sales Forecasts showing you how much you can revenue you can generate a year. Every plan has extensive commentary, design hints and directives and tips for materials and supplies. Be sure to view the Table of Contents. There is simply nothing else like this User Guide and CD in the industry for designing home and commercial grooming spaces.

Remember we are not providing you with drawing software. You can hand draw your custom plan with pencil and ruler, and you can print our JPG and PDF versions on the CD. We used SmartDraw software to design our plans, and our original files are on the CD. Get your own copy of SmartDraw (free trial version is often available) and you can load and edit our plans! SmartDraw has dozens of other uses for business owners for presentations, flow charts and much more. www.smartdraw.com We also provide JPG and PDF versions which you can print, even very large paper, but you cannot edit those files such as with SmartDraw.

If you are working with an architect to create formal plans to build or remodel, your professional will enjoy working with our concepts. Most architects don't know the needs of groomers, let alone Silent Rooms, Cattery Grooming Rooms or Noise Abatement Rooms. Share our ideas as many of our clients have with their architects. We will answer questions of your architect when you are a registered owner of this CD and Guide.

There's much more in the User Guide too. Tips for materials and designs. Organizer to plan your purchases to build out your business. Plus state-of-the-art knowledge on how we design, and you can too, the most unique professional grooming shops small or large. Nothing like this is available anywhere else in the Pet Industry let alone grooming. Read the complete table of contents to understand what we mean.

About the "Business Side"

Every pet groomer is an artist. Groomers that are business owners require as much training in business management as they do styling. Most of their business training is word-of-mouth, or watching other operations. That is not nearly enough training. Unstable profitability, groomer wear and tear, even burnout, is can be avoided with proven grooming business knowledge. We all know management problems plague the industry and its members. We offer proven solutions backed by 51 years of field experience. Go "from problems to profits."
