Christmas is just 4 weeks away. It seems like the last one just ended to me. But once again it is time to prepare for the biggest event of the year.
Do an inventory of all your shampoos and supplies. Do you have enough oatmeal shampoo for those dogs with winter dry skin? How about holiday bandanas and ribbon? Start stocking up now before you are in a panic.
What condition are your blades and shears in? Send them all out so you don’t have to worry about having any dull equipment when you are up to your eyeballs in dogs.
I am sure you keep your salon in spic and span order all the time but now is the time to get in those corners and start organizing your decorations. Don’t forget to check the maintenance of all your dryers too.
Start buying all the Holiday toys, treats, collars and giveaways. One of the best sellers I have are small stuffed toys in Christmas colors and shapes. Pet Edge usually has a good selection at reasonable prices.
Don’t forget to pick up some Christmas CD’S to play to get everyone in the mood. The holidays can be very stressful so be sure to take care of yourself. Book an appointment for a message between Christmas and New Years Day. I find it something to look forward to and if you own your own salon, book one for all your employees as well.
Get ready because it will be here before you know it.
