Groomer - Animal Related Careers


If you enjoy making dogs and cats look their best, maybe the job of a pet groomer is for you! Many groomers own their own salons and are able to set their own hours; groomers are also housed within veterinary clinics, unless they opt to work for a large store chain. Many times groomers work on commission and receive tips to supplement their pay. Besides clipping fur groomers also express anal glands, clip, brush teeth and clean ears. Although not required training is available and suggested for those just starting out in the field, whether by a more knowledgeable groomer or an education facility such as the Animal Career Academy or the Chicago Grooming Academy.
