How to become a high paying dog groomer

There are few things more satisfying in life than finding a job you really enjoy and getting paid well for it. So if you love dogs, why not become a groomer? There are two paths you can take to become a hairdresser – go to school or work your way up.

Although no license or mandatory certification is required to become a dog groomer, just like any career, credentials matter a lot in the pet grooming industry. Dog owners probably won’t trust you with their beloved pups unless you show proof of the skills needed to care for their pets.

Like any other profession, the best degrees are the ones you get from school. Attending a pet grooming school gives you the advantage of on-site training and face-to-face feedback from instructors and classmates. Many states require pet schools to be licensed as vocational schools, which ensures they maintain certain standards. Just remember that the quality of education varies greatly between schools, so make sure you choose the one that best suits your goals.

If school is going to cut too much into your budget or family responsibilities, or if you just want to make sure you really want to be a makeup artist, you can take an online course or one of the increasingly affordable homeschool courses. These courses also work in areas where there may not be a school close enough to attend.

But if you need to start working right away, you can apply to a grooming salon or pet store that offers this service and start as a grooming assistant. It may take a year of work before you are considered for the salon grooming program, and the pay isn’t as good, but at least you’re earning while you learn to become a dog groomer.

If you’re a dog enthusiast, you’re probably familiar with several breeds. But a hairdresser should learn about as many breeds and cuts as possible. The best way is to keep up to date with the standards set by the American Kennel Club and check with the National Dog Groomers Association of America, which by the way would be a good idea to be a member of when you start out.

Get the best dog grooming tools and supplies you can afford: dog brushes and combs, blades, trimmers and nail files, clippers. Once you have the knowledge and equipment you need to be a dog groomer, you can choose to set up shop in your own neighborhood, get a booth at a grooming salon or pet supply store, or offer in-home services .
