Speaking on Business: DogLife

DogLife is a fully-converted mobile grooming facility that has everything to care for your dog's grooming needs.

This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

In a dog-friendly community like the Wood River Valley, Justin and Christine Hellmann, lifelong dog owners and enthusiasts, decided they wanted to do something new; create a mobile dog-grooming business. While being a mobile business isn’t a new idea, Justin says what makes them unique is their focus on pet empowerment, specialized training to put your pet at ease while he’s being groomed.

Justin received specialized animal training to learn how to engage with animals, respect their position and help them be comfortable and relaxed. This approach has been a hit with customers of DogLife, who love knowing their animal won’t come home traumatized from grooming. By the way, this is a fully-converted mobile grooming facility that has everything to care for your dog included, like a tub with a 50-gallon freshwater tank and recirculating shampoo system with two shampoos for each dog. The tub has a shelf that can be raised up when they’re working with smaller dogs, as well as built-in cabinets and LED lighting.

Since launching last fall, Justin says DogLife has been well-received, and it’s spreading through word of mouth from happy customers sharing about their positive experiences. In a dog-centric community like Ketchum, people have embraced the business, especially their use of pet empowerment.
