    Default Working at home

    Hi ladies

    I have posted a similar topic before but really needing as many opinions as possible.

    To sum me up, i am an extremely hard worker but I hate having a boss, i will be leaving my job of 9 years next year to start a family and am wanting to do something from home and want to be able to earn around $200 a week.

    I have done courses in admin (i have an admin job now - debt collecting and various other duties) as well as a dog grooming course.

    Do any bub hubbers get their dogs groomed? Would you take your dog during the week to someones house and pickup again an hour or so later or is this not very practical?

    My interests are animals, children, some crafty things like basic sewing machine sewing, candles etc.

    I am mainly after freedom of working for myself and having flexibility to work around my families needs.

    I would love anyones opinions good or bad.

    Thanks in advance

    I used to get my dog groomed by a groomer who worked from home. I originally went to her as she was about $5-$10 cheaper than a mobile groomer and only a 5 minute drive from my home.

    She kept my business after getting me in the door based on price only by being amazing.

    Good luck

    Our dog goes to the groomers once a fortnight but only for a hydrobath not for clipping. He goes for anywhere up to 3 hours, drop him off at 9 after school drop off and pick him up when she sms' s me that he is ready

    I used to take my dog to a groomer at her house. I would drop him off in the morning and she messaged me when it was done a couple of hours later - she was cheaper than the vets but when she put her prices up to the same as them I went to the vets instead (they did a better job and were closer)

    I would absolutely take my dog to someone's house for grooming as long as they lived locally.

    We previously took our dog to a groomer but only for a hydrobath.

    We started with her in a shop but she then moved to her house and we continued. She then closed up and referred us to another lady who operates out of her house.

    She used to do saturday which was great for us but then switched to weekdays only. In theory that was still ok for us because I don't work fulltime.

    But in all honesty we haven't been back since. I have a lab so it's too hard to control her and a toddler on my own. We find it easier to just go to pet barn and do the diy one on the weekends.

    So I think if you can do a saturday, even if it's only once a fortnight or so, then it may help you.
