Pet Grooming

Work with Animals Every Day!

Help pet owners proudly show off their furry friends by keeping their pets groomed and healthy.

Kirkwood Continuing Education is now offering a noncredit Pet Grooming Certificate to teach you skills and techniques to professionally groom and maintain the appearance of pets, especially dogs and cats.

Grooming skills you’ll learn in this program include brushing, combing, and cutting the pet’s hair, trimming toenails, bathing and drying the pet, cleaning its ears, and pet styling.

The next hybrid, noncredit program begins January 10, 2022 and lasts four months. Tuition includes all required textbooks and grooming supplies.
