Our business focuses mainly on providing pet styling services. Should I also include animals in the goods and services classification in the trademark application?

If you offer pet styling services, including "animals" in your application is unnecessary.

You can choose Class 44, specifically "grooming salon services for pet animals" or simply "grooming of pets". This way, your main business activity is protected against copying by any 3rd party.

If you also sell goods, you can consider adding additional classes such as:

  • Class 3 - shampoos for pets
  • Class 20 - grooming tables for pets
  • Class 21 - brushes for grooming animals

However, bear in mind that if you choose more classes, the final price for your application will be higher.
