From office positions to dog grooming with Hydrodog Mobile Dog Grooming
After working 18 years in various office positions, Alex Valado decided she was sick and tired of her job and desperately wanted a change in her career.
This was when the HydroDog Mobile Dog Grooming franchising opportunity came at the right time. Now Valado is the franchisee of HydroDog Redland Bay, Queensland and has been with the dog washing franchise for over five years.
"At the time, I was a puppy carer and our puppy was being washed and groomed by one of the HydroDog Franchisees,” said Valado.
“I just kept thinking this would be a perfect business for me. I am a very passionate dog lover and being outdoors working with dogs all day - perfect!"
HydroDog Mobile Dog Grooming was first established on the Gold Coast, Queensland in 1994 and sold its first franchise in 1996. There are now 5 master franchisees and over 200 dog washing franchises operating across Australia.
Every HydroDog franchisee is dedicated in providing pet owners with professional and quality dog grooming services including clipping and washing.
Every HydroDog franchisee gets to experience the benefits of:
- An established brand name
- Training and start up support
- Bulk purchasing opportunities
- Sharing of marketing materials and ideas
- Ongoing research and development
- Being part of a group
Since joining the HydroDog team, Alex Valado has spent her time working closely with her Master Franchisee, Paul Mimnaw, and has also extended her experience in business and organisation skills with new franchisees.
"After my family, HydroDog is the most exciting venture I've been part of. There is so much to extend on and watching my business grow is very fulfilling,” said Valado.
