Please read over this page carefully for the answers to your questions before emailing with a question.  Thank you.

Q. Do you groom pets for the public?
A. Yes!  For an appointment at Alpharetta please call 770-663-1366.  For an appointment at Marietta, please call 770-565-7387.

Q. Where is your school located?
A. About 15 miles North of Atlanta at two locations.  One in Marietta, Georgia and one in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Q. Do you have any other locations?

Q. How much is the tuition?
A. Click here for all tuition costs.

Q. Is there financing available?
A. You can check with Keystone Bank for tuition financing options.

Q. What are your admission requirements?
A. We only require that you are physically and mentally able to complete all class assignments in a timely manner in order to be able to successfully complete our program.  Age and prior education are not factors in determining if you will be successful in our program.  We have had many students as young as 13 years old and as old as 66 years old.  As long as you are physically and mentally fit, you should do very well!

Q. What is the age of your average student?
A. Our average student is someone who is in their mid-forties and is changing their career to something they love.  The words we hear most often from these students is that they wish they hadn't waited so long and had done this a long time ago.  Don't wait another minute to get started in your new career!

Q. I'm a veteran.  Will the V.A. pay for my schooling?
A. We have had several students who's tuition and equipment was paid for by the V.A.  Please contact the V.A. directly to inquire about their programs.

Q. I'm a foreigner, can you issue me an I-20 Visa to attend school?
A. Yes, we are one of the only grooming schools in the country to be approved by the Department of Homeland Security to issue I-20 Visas to students.

Q. How long does it take to complete the course?
A. You have complete control over your schedule!  Click here for the amount of time it takes to complete the course.

Q. When do classes start?
A. Classes begin the first Monday of each month.

Q. If I already have some of the equipment, do I still have to buy it?
A. No, if you have equipment that is comparable to what is in the kit, you can use what you already have.

Q. What is in the equipment kit?
A. Click here to see the list.

Q. What do I wear to school?
A. Click here to see our professional dress code.

Q. When I finish your course, will I be certified?  
A. YES!!  Click here for information on certification.

Q. What happens if I want to take a break to go back home and visit the family or join the family on a vacation?
A. We offer a flexible schedule that you create yourself and can change at any time.  Our revolutionary individualized training methods allow you to take that vacation or whatever you need to attend to, and pick up right where you left off when you come back.  No other pet grooming school in the world allows the flexibility that we can offer for you!

Q. Do I Have to share grooming of pets with other students or will I have my own pets to groom?
A.  We usually average several pets per student per day to groom!  You are never required to share pets with other students like many other schools.  It is our goal to schedule one pet per student per hour of attendance.  No other school anywhere can offer as much variety of purebreds and experience we can.  You get tons of valuable experience at our school.  Don't cheat yourself out of a quality education by attending anywhere else!

Q. What kind of grading or evaluation system do you have?
A. Not only is each student evaluated on a weekly basis on their progress, knowledge, skill level, efficiency, etc, but each student evaluates their instructors and the school in general as far as how well you feel we are preparing you for your career.  This gives everyone an excellent opportunity to sit down and review progress and what the student would like to work on as far as goals for the upcoming week and where improvements can be made both for the student AND the instructors!

Q. I'm seriously thinking of enrolling in your school, what should I do next?
A. If possible, come and take a tour of the school and meet the current students and the instructors.  We're sure if you take a tour, you'll be convinced that you want to attend.  Tours are given anytime, just drop on by whenever you like and hang out with us for awhile!  You're going to love it! 

Q. Will you teach me just how to groom my own dog or just one specific breed?
A. Yes, we will teach you anything you want to learn for $50 per hour.

Q. Can you recommend a school in my state or near me?
A. No, we cannot recommend any other school, as we are not familiar enough with them. 

Q. Can you help me find a school near me?
A. I'm sorry, but we do not maintain a directory of other schools.
