The Grooming School of Indiana’s Certified Professional Groomer Program is designed to offer students, with no professional grooming experience, an avenue to enter the market in a relatively short period of time, concentrate on basic pet grooming and handling of dogs. It also allows students to concentrate on basic pet grooming including everything taught in the first portion of the program as well as clipper and scissor finishing techniques, proper pattern setting for various breeds.
Emphasis is placed on perfecting grooming skills while concentrating on proper breed profile, increasing speed, efficiency and developing maximum grooming potential.

“Two years ago I was a nurse wanting to quit working as a nurse but not ready to retire. I was 54 years old and had wanted to be a dog groomer for many years. I kept thinking that I was to old to start something new. I did some research and job shadowing and decided I was going to go to grooming school. It is one one of the best decisions I have made.
“My dog grooming adventure started because I have a Lhasa Apso named Harley! One hot summer day I decided to cut his hair. Well it didn’t turn out to bad, but it wasn’t that great either. I thought to myself for months that I should go to dog grooming school. Well one day I decided to look into it.
“I enrolled in grooming school of Indiana because I was interested in grooming. Although I didn’t have much knowledge I wanted to learn. The instructor (Pam) was great, she taught me a lot about the different breeds that I had never learned. She made it easy and took her time. I now have the skills and knowledge to be an informative professional groomer.” – Carla Bryant
“My daughter is a 22 year old hearing impaired girl that was looking for career. She was not academically motivated, but also needed to start thinking about her future. She has always been an animal lover and knew she wanted to work in that field. She decided that pet-grooming was a positive option for her.
“I had a great experience at Grooming School of Indiana. The hands on atmosphere is the reason I chose this school. The instructor Pam is very informative and taught me lots of tips with different breeds. Thanks to pam and Grooming School of Indiana I now have the skills to excel and be a confident groomer!” – Natalie Caruthers
