I now work at an ACTUAL grooming boutique where I'm learning to groom properly. They thought the rules at petsmart are quite amusing, like how cats can only be groomed with a 10 blade and you can never use scissors on them. Or how bather brushers were only ever allowed to use a 10 blade for anything, even though we were expected to do tidies. The scissors we were given couldn't even cut paper.
Our PetSmart certified Cat Groomers are ready to make your life a little easier and get your kitten or cat looking purrfect.
I brought my toy poodle to be groomed to the Lake Park, FL location. I dropped her off and told the woman I did not want her shaved. This was my first time using PetSmart grooming services so I was VERY CLEAR on what I wanted. She said she would have to shave in a couple of places, however when I picked her up she was completely shaved. This does not even look like my dog anymore and I am in tears over this. Her curly coat is something that essentially defined her look. Now it will take months to grow back, and I don't even know if it will grow back normal. Also, she is normally itchy after a groom but this is ridiculous, she has been itching the entire time since she's been home. I will never bring my dog here again or shop here, and will advise others against Petsmart as well. Obviously the groomer decided to put profit over my dog's needs and the customer's direction.

Hi Everyone!I appreciate everyone posting in this thread. I am seriously contemplating a career change. I am very happy and satisfied the way my dogs are treated at Petsmart.It is my understanding that everyone starts off as a bather. Does Petsmart provide training for professional bathers? Also are there safety precautions and equipment provided for bathers? Aside from bathing dogs/cats, are the bathers responsible for nail grooming, teeth brushing, and anal express? If anyone can also advise what is the average hourly salary, I would appreciate it.Thank you in advance!
This comment is WAY too convincing based on one persons option. Because of this comment I moved to a small 6 hours away from home with no friends/family and paid 8500$ to go to a professional grooming school. The training wasn't great. We spent way too much time doing bath and brushs and shorthair dogs. Never got any one on one training There are 1-2 instructors and 6 students. We basically realized our teacher was online videos. I maybe did 1
Poodle while there. When it came to do my test I did a bishon and I had never done one before. You pay 8500$ you expect to her high quality training. I had to go to school all day and work an weekend job. After graduating I was offered a job and felt lucky so I stayed. Now over a year later I still live in this city away from home and I'm still paying off the 8500$, I watch students come through and I see the lack of training they get. And now I find out that the pet smart program gives you the same certification. Why on earth did I waste all my money and my life. I could have been getting paid all along. I feel like I've been ripped off my this "grooming school". So yeah.
