A history of the HydroDog franchise

Businesses evolve over the years; you must make changes to grow. HydroDog continues to grow, but we don’t want to discredit our past. We have developed a lot over the last couple of years. We started out in Australia and have made our way all the way over into the United States.

Our journey began in Australia where we had more than 200 Franchises, but then sold our stake in the company there where it’s now rebranded as Blue Wheelers. We aren’t affiliated with Blue Wheelers, but we wish them luck in their dog grooming efforts.

HydroDog has been through a lot, and the massive success it has today hasn’t come easily. Our founder, Anthony Amos created the HydroDog Mobile Dog Grooming franchise when he was only 21 years old; he did so during his free time as a professional rugby player in Australia. Amos strives to get your dog looking their best, along with raising awareness for shelters and regular philanthropic events to donate money to a local animal shelter near you.

You won’t be able to miss our Big Blue Dog rolling through your town. All of our groomers are professionally trained at Academy where they’re taught the best practices in grooming and handling. You will receive digital and traditional marketing support from HydroDog’s marketing team. Among many of the numerous support systems you receive when joining the HydroDog team, you also gain direct access to the CEO Anthony Amos.

As we grow, we encourage others to join us in our amazing journey of rescuing dogs. If you’re interested in one of our franchise opportunities where you get to be your own boss, apply now and join our team of professionals.

About HydroDog

HydroDog was founded when Anthony Amos, an Australian rugby player, decided to use his downtime to start his own business. At 21 he and he founded the mobile dog grooming business. He quickly turned to franchising to meet the high demand the business experienced. Within five years of offering the business as a franchise, Hydrodog had grown to over 100 franchises across Australia. Now, the brand is expanding the revolutionary dog grooming franchise to the United States with its fiberglass mobile grooming salon in the shape of a big blue dog.
