Basic Dog Grooming Website Template to work from
Choose your own design and colours to suit your dog grooming salon.
Step 1. Choose a platform
To start you need a website platform to host your dog grooming websites on the internet. Here are four different website platforms to choose from. If you are thinking what are the best dog grooming websites? Honestly what dog owners want to see on your dog grooming website which ever platform you use, is photos of the dogs you have groomed. Before and after photo’s, just photo’s of normal dogs which look like theirs which they can relate to.
My favourite, a photographers photo sharing platform. Perfect if you have loads and loads of dog grooming photos to display. Create a stunning portfolio of your dog grooming photos. You also get unlimited photo storage within the plan.

Weebly have website templates to work from, it is easy to use and used by many.
You can also build an online shop really quickly with Weebly. Which is handy if you want to sell dog grooming shampoo, pet perfume and dog accessories online. You can make a pet shop website too.
It is completely free to start a just a website with Weebly.

Like my favourite SmugMug, Zenfolio is geared towards photographers although it’s not like SmugMug all. Because you only get a tiny amount of photo storage.
But for us dog groomers Zenfolio is perfect, there’s enough photo storage for a few dog grooming photos. It’s really cheap, the website templates are very easy to use and really nice!!

Step 2. Start your free trial
Once you have decided which website platform will suit your dog grooming business the best, start a free trial.
Step 3. Choose your photos
Dog grooming websites need photos of dogs groomed in your salon for example purposes of what to expect when using your dog grooming business services. There is no harm using a few stock photos for your website, but just don’t try and fool anyone by using amazing photos of groomed dogs which you haven’t groomed, you will get caught out.
Step 4. Create content
By creating content for the website, you will give visitors to website all the information they need to know about your business.
Add extra content by adding a blog in time.
Start a dog grooming blog
Start a dog grooming blog on your website, easily use a blank page to write a blog and add photos too. You can write a blog about anything dog grooming competitions, courses you may go on the list is endless. Or use a page for news and keep up to date news and information for clients to see on there. Divi has a blog section already made within the dog grooming website template.
The about page is about your pet business and you. What sets you apart from the other businesses in your area doing the same job. And what background information do you have which you can add to the about page. This will make clients want to use you and your business instead of anyone else. Also do you have or are you working towards any qualifications within your section of the pet industry.
What services does your dog grooming business provide? Are you going to add prices to the services page or prices from?
A photo gallery of some kind is a must for the before and after photo’s. This will be most probably the most visited page on the website. A dog grooming business is very similar to a hairdressers, some people will call the dog groomers hairdressers for dogs. If you think when you are looking for a hairdressers you want to know how well they can cut your hair, it’s the same thing with dog grooming. Simple photo’s on your website will show this off.
Step 7. Check contact details
Always check that your contact details are correct. The email address and your phone number, so when you get the enquiries they come to the right place.
Step 8. Publish Site
Once you are happy with the whole website just hit publish and your website will be live online.
Step 9. Share
Share your website with your friends, share on social media and use the website address on your business cards and other marketing materials.
I promote my dog grooming business with my website. It may surprise you but not everyone is on social media, use social media. But the website is my main marketing tool for my dog grooming business and has been from the start.
The best dog grooming websites are the one's which have all the information on which visitors to website are looking for. WordPress is the best platform for a dog grooming website but there are other options for dog groomer websites.
Pet groomers need a website because not everyone searching for dog grooming in their local area are on FaceBook or social media. With a pet grooming website you can list all your dog grooming services, opening hours and display your before and after dog grooming photo's and lots more.
