Because there is no license requirement, anyone can call themselves a “groomer”. However, at DoGone Fun our groomers have at least 800 hours of formal training or at least 5 years of grooming experience. All groomers take additional training at Animal Career Academy and tutelage from our Master Groomer, Dan. They are also required to attend grooming industry continuing education. Other facilities that hire “trained” groomers generally require only 300-400 hours of training.
