You’ll be the cat groomer hero everyone in town raves about!
“I’ve been able to shorten my times significantly since starting classes. I was able to get two aggressive cats done (one bath and one lion cut) done in one hour. The first kitty was one everyone has kicked out because she was too aggressive. I was able to keep her mostly calm and she only attempted to bite once, but I was able to get her to relax and finish her. I’m pretty proud of myself!”
The Complete Training Syllabus includes instructional material needed to become a skilled and confident cat groomer and prepare for CFMG certification, whether a beginner or a seasoned groomer.
We take the guesswork out of cat grooming so you can stop:
- needing an extra set of hands to help you get the job done
- handing over incomplete grooms because you couldn’t finish
- fretting over the crazy cats that make you sweat even before they’re out of the crate
- charging too little for your work
- dealing with clients that won’t listen to you
- wrestling with cats more than actually grooming them
We believe you deserve to be the very best cat groomer possible! By having a proven method to follow for each and every cat, the grooms can be done completely, with confidence, and with beautiful results.
The Syllabus includes access to our private student Facebook group, online courses, and books.
