After meeting Dara Forleo at Groom Expo West in Pasadena, CA while in the process of purchasing a grooming shop, I knew that she would be where I turned to learn to groom. At 54 and learning a new career I am thrilled with my decision to come from Chicago to NH to learn from the best!

Creating a new breed of pet stylist

The grooming industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the country and one of the few industries that grew during the last recession and Covid. There will always be a call for safe, well trained groomers and pet stylists.

Becoming a pet stylist is a great way for you to capitalize on your love for animals.
