    Pet Grooming Business in Dubai

    With the increasing number of pet owners in Dubai who lack the time to pamper their pets, the demand for pet grooming services is higher than ever.

    This surge in pet ownership in the UAE presents a ripe opportunity for entrepreneurs who are passionate about animals. Starting a pet grooming business in Dubai taps into this growing market and offers a fulfilling way of working with animals.

    So, how do you launch a pet grooming business in Dubai? This article guides you through the reasons to start such a business, the licensing process, necessary documentation, and other vital information to help you embark on your entrepreneurial journey.

    Why start a pet grooming business in Dubai?

    Starting a pet grooming business in Dubai is a great business venture for many reasons. Most people who launch this kind of company will have prior experience caring for animals – whether caring for their own pets or through previous experience working at a pet salon.

    Whatever your experience, there are several great reasons to launch a pet grooming business in Dubai. They include:

    1. A fast-growing market

    According to recently published research, the market for dog food in the United Arab Emirates will expand at a compound annual growth rate of 7% over the next five years. These figures suggest that the general pet population in the UAE will grow at a comparable rate.

    Many of these pet owners will likely need the services of a pet grooming business. Getting into a growing market early is a smart move for any entrepreneur – and it means you’ll have a good chance of making a healthy living for many years to come.

    1. Satisfying work

    If you love dogs, cats and other furry or feathered friends, running a pet grooming business is a very satisfying career move. You will be able to spend your days with all kinds of pets, making them (and their owners) happy and healthy.

    1. Meeting a need post-pandemic

    Many people chose to purchase a new pet during the pandemic while working from home. However, as many of those pet owners are returning to physical offices to do their work, they have less time to give their pets the care and attention they need.

    By running a pet grooming business in Dubai, you can provide these customers with the support they need to maintain their animals.

    1. No or low tax rate

    Dubai has a low corporate tax rate, and if you set up your company in a UAE Free Zone you won’t have to pay any income tax. That means more money stays in your business, which you can reinvest to expand.

    Steps to get a pet grooming licence in Dubai

    If you want to start a pet grooming business in Dubai, you must first apply for a licence from the emirate’s authorities. This will require completing the following steps.

    Step one: Choose your trading name.

    Your trading name needs to describe what your company does, and you should be careful not to include any terms that could be considered offensive or potentially blasphemous. Also, the brand must not include any acronyms of your own name. For example, Jasmine Klein Dog Groomers is fine, but JK Dog Groomers would be against the rules.

    Step 2: Select your business activity.

    All businesses in the UAE must select business activities describing what they do from a list of permitted activities.

    Step 3: Fill in your application form.

    Next, you need to fill in a trading licence application form that provides an overview of the company, your business plan, shareholders’ details, and other related information.

    Step 4: Get external approvals.

    To receive your licence, you will need to obtain approval from the relevant authorities.

    Step 5: Collect the required documents.

    During the application process you will need to gather various documents together, including passport copies, copies of your visa and stamped approved licence applications.

    Step 6: Choose your pet grooming business location.

    You will need to choose a suitable location for your pet grooming business – in a free zone or on the Dubai mainland.

    Step 7: Pay any application fees.

    You will need to pay various fees before you receive your business licence application.
