A few months back, a local business owner and myself were talking about how nice it would be if we had an easy way of cleaning our dogs at home. It led us to talk about a mobile dog wash business. (true entrepreneur spirits) While doing the research and crunching the numbers, we realized it was not a viable business. With the ideas resting not so quietly on the back burner, we continue to drag our unwilling dogs to the groomers. I don't know about her but my grooming bill for one little house puppy is $1200 a year! These little indoor dogs live long lives, sometimes 14 to 15 years. Now we are talking big money...around $17,000 in just grooming for the lifetime of one little itty bitty dogie!
In an article published in Rismedia November 30th written by Mark Nash titled "What;s in and What's Out with Home Buyers in 2008", he lists some obvious and not so obvious changes but wait...item four in the What's In category is, you guessed it, PET SHOWERS!
For an estimate of about $4,000 you can build a very desirable and fashionable PET SHOWER in a laundry room or garage! With a pet shower I would be saving and estimated $13,000 on the care of one spoiled pup. I too am predicting that the Pet Shower is going to be the HOTTEST new ticket in property assets.
The photo above is taken from a very cool custom tile site by Margaret Licha Designs and it prove that dogie showers are the new buzz word for pet owners.
