Would starting up my own dog grooming business work out well? Would it be worth the time and money?

It won't work out well if you take advice from a bunch of clueless anonymous Yahoos on an internet message board.
The real answer to your question about whether it would be worth the time and money is, "I don't know, you tell me."
That's what a comprehensive business plan is for. First you start and run the business on paper, going through market, marketing, tax and accounting, revenue management, capital requirements, your income needs, state and local regulations, insurance, and on and on.
If you're not willing to put the time and effort into a comprehensive business plan, you're not committed enough and won't succeed in any business.

It's expensive, the equipment needed is going to cost around $4,000. Then there's store rental, insurance, the regular health and fire inspections, you need training in the field to be licensed, which usually means apprenticeship for a few years, etc.
It's not something you just jump into.

No one could answer that without more information. If you live in a town of 100 people where there are 3 dogs, then no. If you live in a town with a lot of people, but too many dog groomers, then no. If you live in a place with a lot of dogs, and no groomers, then yes. That's why you do a business market analysis.
