The one at Crown Bay was mobile but has moved into the shopping center. Maybe she still does the mobile?

No mobile. The place is called Style A Dog.
Costs twice as much for one dog to get bathed, ears cleaned and nails clipped as it does at the Vets (Dr. Williamson's) as I normally pay for 2 dogs so with 3 dogs, definately over my budget. I am sure they are probably good if you want to pay the extra $$$$$$$.

We're desperate for a full time fixed groomer here on STJ. This is a career where a qualified person could make a good living on an expensive island. All that's needed is water, electricity, holding area and a drop off parking area and you're in business.

There is a mobile groomer. Do a google search of Paul's Pampered Pooches. I can't remember the number but I've seen the ads in paper.

There's much more involved in grooming dogs so make sure you know what you are getting into.
You really do have to know what you are doing. You can get ill-tempered dogs that try to bite you when being groomed, you need to be able to deal with fleas and ticks, 9on them and then in your workspace, skin disorders, know exactly how to shave or trim fur, have the right shampoos, have sinks large enouff to handle different sized animals, kennels, etc., just to name a few.

You can't just hose 'em down and hand 'em back.
