What is great about some of these schools is that some of them offer job placement assistance after graduation if you proved to be a good student and you have the requested qualities for a groomer. In order to be a groomer you don’t need just creativity, but you also have to be a good dog trainer, so that you can convince the dog to stay on the grooming table while you work. So, it is a very complex job, because dogs are not like humans, they do not understand that when leaving the grooming table they look better. Most of the dogs don’t like grooming, and you need to know this from the very beginning.

When you graduated a dog grooming school leaded by professionals and dog lovers, your knowledge about the job will give you higher chances to actually work as a groomer. Why is that? Well, you get more credibility, and I think this is extremely important. Don’t you trust professionals that graduated a school better than others who just claim that they are good or have experience? I do. I think that no matter how good you think you are, there is always something more to learn from someone with much more experience.
