Be your own boss in a field that is growing each year! According to the "National Industry-Occupation Employment Matrix," a publication of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for Pet Groomers will increase 18% by the year 2016. Becoming a professional pet groomer is an exciting career that allows you to work in animal hospitals, boarding kennels, animal shelters, pet grooming establishments, pet training schools, and pet shops or reach your ultimate goal of opening your own pet grooming salon.
At Anita's Wags to Riches you will receive a one-on-one hands-on training in our pet grooming program at our East Brunswick, New Jersey salon. With ten years grooming experience along with ten years experience running her own grooming salon, Anita will show you all techniques needed to become a qualified and successful dog groomer. You do not get this hands-on experience from online or distance learning grooming schools. There is no substitute for working with real dogs while having an experienced trainer to guide you.
Anita is pet CPR and first aid certified. She is a member of the National Dog Groomers Association. According to an article on their site by George Mello, a great way to enter the field is as "an apprenticeship or on-the-job-training. This is an excellent way to get both training and hands-on experience, provided you find a reputable professional groomer that will pass on good grooming techniques and habits." Anita is just such a professional!
The course in pet grooming takes you through the entire process beginning with grooming preparation, through clipping, scissoring, and styling to flaw camouflaging and finishing touches. You will learn how to set up and operate your own shop. So, if you are serious about starting a career in NJ as a pet groomer and owning your own business, then Anita’s Wags to Riches is just what you need!
