Teaching the art of professional pet grooming for over 39 years.

The Pampered Pet School of Dog Grooming programs were developed in 1966. The original program was a four week course designed to train stylists for our own salon. Research including: meetings with dog breeders, dog handlers, dog trainers and other professional groomers began as a result of a desire to improve our course and our salon. All these years later, we have perfected several courses designed to enable animal loving people to enter the job market successfully. Hands on training combined with classroom, video and bookwork have helped to make our four courses what they are today. In addition to our outlined plans, we also enjoy guest speakers from the industry whenever possible.

School Philosophy

Our mission has always been to provide the skills needed to enter the pet grooming and training market successfully. We also want to bring a better knowledge base to our industry so that we can command the respect we deserve in the workplace. Although our graduates leave as beginners, most have enjoyed an outrageous amount of success fresh out of school. Many of our graduates have opened their own businesses and some have done so directly after graduation. We believe that pet grooming and training are lucrative career choices for those interested in working with animals. We take pride in the high standards we have set for our school and all of those who choose to attend. This standard is maintained not only in the training we offer, but the skills our graduates take with them and enhance during the rest of their professional careers. We can offer these opportunities to those students who have a serious attitude toward their training and allow us to do our job. The training we offer can be a base for any dedicated person to begin a new career doing a job they love.
