  • If you sign up with a chain store (Petco, Petsmart, etc) they will send you to school, 3 months. You sign a contract with them to stay on as their employee for 1 year. However, a GOOD groomer will go to that same beginner school, and then continue on to learn more specific cuts. A GOOD groomer will hire you with the understanding that you will not totally groom a dog on your own until you "study" under them for at least 6 months after you are certified.
    Good and fun career to get into.
