Three factors to consider in planning and opening a Shih Tzu Groom Shop are:

1. Shop design

2. Working to achieve maximum production

3. Business management

Shop Interior Design

How you decorate will render your Shih Tzu Groom Shop attractive or unattractive, inviting or uninviting. Flattering in-shop décor contributes to creating a favorable impression on your customers. The Shih Tzu Groom Shop should be as light as possible. Light colors should dominate the décor. Combining pastel shades of mist blue, rosebud, candy pink and others provides a very soft and light décor. If you are conservative stick to a color such as antique white or sky blue. The ideal decorative setup also includes using materials that make frequent painting unnecessary. Wall paper is easier to maintain and will last longer than paint. Paneled walls will last longer than anything else. Tiled floors are most desired for easy clean-up and disinfecting. Avoid rugs of any kind.

Exterior Décor

The exterior decoration of your Shih Tzu Groom Shop is very important also. Try to attract attention to your Shih Tzu Groom Shop. Beautiful paintings of Shih Tzu on either side of your shop name are very attractive. The exterior design of your Shih Tzu Groom Shop is the face it shows the world. Careful thought should be given to this very important piece of your décor. Use merchandise in the windows such as dog supplies to create a homey-looking shop. The type of window covering you choose should blend in with the shop's theme décor.

Reception Room

A wall or petition separating the reception room from work areas in the shop is a must. A beautiful and comfortable reception room for your customers to bring their Shih Tzu or wait to pick up is most desirable. The reception room should be the most attractive area of the Shih Tzu Groom Shop. Furnish the area with nice, comfortable chairs, a coffee table or long reception table with dog magazines for your customers to look at. A desirable and profitable piece of furniture is the accessory display cabinet. One or two cabinets tastefully displaying a variety of accessories is most desirable and profitable. You can enhance the reception room with paintings or photos of dogs and puppies you have groomed. If you show Shih Tzu, a display of ribbons, rosettes, and trophies is most impressive. Prominently display photographs of Shih Tzu hairstyles and clips for your customers to get an idea of what they would like for their own Shih Tzu. A beautiful reception room in your Shih Tzu Groom Shop can make a most favorable impression on your customers while enticing them to purchase your particular accessories. A price chart displayed prominently in the reception room is essential. This way no one can quarrel about price discrimination.

A "Dutch" door should separate your work area from the reception room. A Dutch door is a swinging door made in two parts. The bottom half can be locked while the top half remains open.
