    When I first started as a bather I was loving on this black dog a bunch, nuzzling him, kissing his little head, then when I got him wet it looked like his fur was moving, like, wiggling… it was. There were thousands of fleas running all over his face and into his eyes, nose, and mouth. It felt like a horror movie

    I love this, thank you for posting!!! I have been thinking about becoming a professional dog groomer for ages, ever since I got my Golden Retriever. This really gives me a lot to think about. xoxo

    Thank you for such an honest and thorough overview of things that really do need to be taken into consideration when considering this as your career! you’re so right about volunteering and or working at an animal shelter in order to gain experience and exposure.

    This is a very thorough and well-thought-out video. I’ve trained a number of new stylists over the years and try to be as honest as possible about how grooming really is before they get into it. However, it’s sometimes difficult to cover all of the topics that could be a deal breaker for them because we get so used to these challenges ourselves that we forget how it will affect someone new to the career. This is a great resource I’ll point people to in the future. Thank you for taking the time to compile this list and share it in such an engaging format!!

    Wow-this is direct, honest advice. You helped me realize that I don’t have a lot of experience handling other people’s dogs, and I’d need to jump in to that before committing to this career. I am totally subscribing!

    Which grooming school would you recommend. Would ABC be a wise choice?

  9. Elizabeth OC on May 16, 2022 at 4:52 pm

    I did work experience at a doggy daycare for around a year and a half. It was exhausting, but the best job I’ve ever worked. I learnt so so much

  10. Ellie Kat on May 16, 2022 at 4:53 pm

    May I ask where you’re from? I also worked in a kennel that did a bit of everything, also I wondered where you went to grooming school

  11. camille ballard on May 16, 2022 at 4:57 pm

    As a groomer. I agree with all of this. The biggest one for me is patience. I’ve seen groomers lose theirs and become rough in their handling. So having lots of patience is a must.

    Thank you so much! ♥️

    I was surprised that a job listed pet groomer 70k

  14. Edward Chip Dixon on May 16, 2022 at 5:02 pm

    Yeah I used to go to Adult Trade School for Pet Grooming Classes and used to work as a doggy daycare attendant and used to volunteer at the animal shelter w the dogs but well I have some physical limitations so I just volunteer w small dogs and cats and it was there 2

  15. Renae J on May 16, 2022 at 5:03 pm

    Do you think there is an age limit to become a groomer?

  16. rebecca codling on May 16, 2022 at 5:04 pm

    Hey I have disease in my back, But I have dreamt of being a dog groomer since I was a child, would my back get in the way of this?

  17. samra cassar on May 16, 2022 at 5:04 pm

    I really appreciate your video and thoughts on pet grooming !! You’re a wonderful speaker and certainly gave me the chance to think deeply about the bigger picture of pet grooming and what it really entails. I’m trying to get in as a trainee 🙂

    Watching this while I’m trying to clip my cat’s nails like: “I am a warrior. I have what it TAKES”

  19. Summer on May 16, 2022 at 5:09 pm

    I’ve been a barber for 27 years now. I’ve always wanted to be a dog groomer. Do you think it would easy to switch over? I love love animals. there is a need for it in my area. I wanted to do it from my home. I have a lot of property and would set it up in my garage.

  20. darkslide180 on May 16, 2022 at 5:09 pm

    i currently get paid $10/hr to work at a daycare/kennel and let me tell you while it might be the greatest job, getting paid $10/hr is an absolute crime especially when your company is branded as a ‘luxury’ pet resort (pet paradise….)
    but it made me realize that grooming is a viable career choice, was grooming school worth it? or should I just look for an apprenticeship/start at an entry level petsmart groomer?
    edit: just watched your other videos! very informative thank you so much!

  21. Ems Iamproudpinay on May 16, 2022 at 5:11 pm

    Thank you very much for the information,, I am also applying for that position but I have no experience about it, and this video helps me more understand about the Groomer things, hope to see more videos

    I think if I can deal With injured,sick and very dangerous wild animals at a volunteer place,I’ll be fine doing pet grooming

  23. Elizabeth Michelle on May 16, 2022 at 5:14 pm

    My first year working at a dog groomers. I had this terrier I was working on. I went to clip his nails. He jumped right out of my arms and onto the floor. I felt like it happened in slow motion cause I was in shock. I still am kind of traumatized from it. It was a high table I had him on. He was okay. I’ve learned to keep a handle on sneaky runaways like him.

    I love this video! I see so many groomers glorify it, only showing the good dogs. I’m a bather eventually a groomer but this job has taught me dogs are still animals before they’re our pets! That being said I still love them I love them even more now just differently.

    15 Years of grooming left me with 2 carpal tunnel surgeries a bad back and generally broke down body. But hey it was fun while it lasted and lucrative!
