Posted on: January 11, 2022
YOUR GROOMING CAREER:
Start your career in grooming as a Groomer Trainee! As a Groomer
Trainee in our Grooming Salon, you'll have the opportunity to build
personal relationships with your clients each time they visit and
truly become a part of their family. You'll get to know their pets'
styles and personalities to create a customized, stylish experience
just for them! From that first shampoo to that final strut home,
you'll take pride in the services you provide!
GROOMED FOR GREATNESS:
You bring the passion and we'll bring the training. Petsmart offers
a free, paid training program that will set you up for success.
Stage 1- Pet Stylist Apprentice: Jump start your education by
getting hands-on experience with our pets. These pets become our
own pets while they are in our care, so our number one priority is
to get safety certified. Under the guidance of the salon leader,
you'll begin your training as a bather and learn about different
dog breeds and styling. You'll help to get the dogs comfortable in
our salon and spend time bathing them, trimming their nails and
providing support to groomers throughout the pet's stay.
Stage 2- Grooming Academy: After getting some experience under your
belt (well, smock!), you'll attend our free, paid Grooming Academy!
This exclusive, 4-week program is valued at over $6000! You'll have
4 weeks in a classroom environment, gaining insights from our
experienced Academy Trainers. You'll dive in deeper into breed
styling, caring for different dog breeds, and get comfortable with
tools and clippers. As an added bonus, at graduation, you'll
receive a free tool kit worth over $600!
Stage 3- Groomer Trainee: You'll put your brand-new education and
fancy new tool kit to work when you head back to our salon. With
the leadership and oversight of experienced groomers, you'll begin
to groom all different breeds and sizes of dogs. We have a target
of 200 dogs to ensure you get the experience and diversity you
Stage 4- Pet Stylist in Training: Now it's time for you to really
hone your skill set. You'll build relationships with your own
clients, advise on styles, suggest new services and share in the
joy that comes with a client picking up their freshly coiffed pet.
It's the best thing in the world, well, that free tool kit is
pretty great, too!
