Froggwoods Professional Dog Grooming Academy

Have you ever wanted to learn how to groom dogs professionally but can't quit your job for 2-6 months to go to school?    Are you already a Professional Groomer and would benefit from some Continuing Education?  Whether you are a novice with limited to no experience, or a professional groomer just looking to hone a specific skill, we have a fit for you.  

Non-groomer classes are available and especially suited for pet care providers such as pet sitters, doggy daycares, dog walkers and more.  We can teach you how to provide simple grooming maintenance for your furry clients which in turn will help you better accommodate their needs.  It is a wonderful way to support your current business and increase your revenue.  

Although it is possible to test for a grooming certification, it is not a necessity to obtain one in order to become a professional groomer. We can, however help you prepare for the test. In order to get a great job as a professional groomer or to open your own shop, you really need expert training and practical, hands-on experience with dogs.  

Our Instructor has over 20 years professional experience.  We are not one of those over crowded and over priced grooming schools.  We will work with you personally in order to keep learning to a maximum and you can pay for one lesson or several.  We will go at your pace.  The dogs we use for lessons are real dogs from local shelters and rescues!  What a wonderful way to help homeless pets and learn a career that you'll love! 

Our lessons are starting all the time for your convenience so there is no need to wait!  Remember that you can take as little as one lesson per week or as much as two lessons per day! We require payment prior to each class so you can pay as you go or pay all at once.  We accept major credit cards, cash or check (upon approval). Please call, email or drop by for more information and a tour!  We're excited to get you on your way to a unique and rewarding career!  See you soon!

Did you know that most full time groomers make a great living with income potential of $40,000 and up!!!  That's not including the fabulous tips that you receive from wonderful clients!
