    I learned to groom under an other groomer. This was back in 77. It was a good experience for me. Try bathing first then see if this place will teach you to groom.
    hope this helps.

    I'm not a groomer but I have helped out as a bather for a friend at her job.

    Most of my friends who are groomers didn't actually go to a school they were mentored and taught everything by an experienced groomer.

    The obamacare is what she is waiting on to see how it will affect her store and if she can hire anyone else or not.

    I had to give it up because the other groomers were very catty and cliquey. Just not for me. I'm happier as a stocker. But I know the groomers make better money than I do.
