Description:


The job of a pet groomer is to bathe, brush, trim and provide other grooming services for domestic pets, usually dogs and cats.

Requirements


There is no specific educational requirement for becoming a pet groomer, although training programs are available through online courses and some schools. However, many people in the field have learned their skills through on-the-job training. Skilled pet groomers know the grooming standards for all breeds of dogs, understand small-animal anatomy and know how to spot changes in a pet's hygiene that might indicate a health concern.
