Things to Consider Before Choosing a School

  1. Go with a school that has stood the test of time. When you see ads online that means they are paid for, not necessarily a good choice.
  2. Never trust a site that tries to rush your purchase , because of a so called sale that ends tomorrow. That puts buyer in a position to impulse buy.  Making a rush to judgement. This is an old trick that unfortunately still works.
  3. Tuition costs are important, so checkout prices, but keep in mind the cost is only one aspect. The quality of training meaningful is most .
  4. The amount of books or DVDs are not what is important - it the materials in those that matters
  5. Work required should be 200 to 400 hour for online and home study. Grooming a hand full of dogs is to little experience for anyone.You need to experience many breed types, different coat types, differences in breed trait to gain the.knowledge you need, It is dangerous for the future dogs you groom and dangerous for you! Everyday there are dogs injured or killed, as well as groomers having body parts bit off, including. fingers, noses and flesh.
  6. There is no governing body that oversees pet groomer, therefore you do not need a license to groom at this time. Each state will eventually require licensing. When this happens you most likely will have to prove you have had sufficient training.
  7. An instructor with years of experience has years of knowledge to share.
  8. Be sure their support policy is sufficient so you are not left with unattainable answers to your questions.
