Beyond the Pet Grooming Classes

We offer career services to our graduates to help them find placements in the pet service industry. The skills our students learn in our pet grooming classes, combined with the connections made with the Dog Grooming USA certified instructors, make them more desirable job candidates in pet grooming.


All applicants to the program must be over 16 years of age with a high school diploma or equivalent. If an applicant does not have a diploma, they are not disqualified, but must show proof that they completed at least two years of high school. The most important qualification is that you must enjoy working with animals! Dogs can sense when you don’t want to be around them, so the most important thing about applying in pet grooming classes is that you have to like working with dogs and cats all day long. This is not to say that you need prior pet service experience to take our courses, we created concepts that are perfect for everyone whether you’ve been working with pets for years or you’re just looking to start your career.
