Are you looking to earn a certification in professional pet grooming? Have you always dreamed of working with animals for your career? If so, becoming a certified pet stylist might just be for you!
The Pet Stylist school at Petropolis Academy has been helping groomers earn their certifications since 1993. Located in Chesterfield, MO – just outside of St. Louis – we offer an environment that is conducive to learning the art of professional pet grooming. Through use of a balanced mixture of hands on training, lecture and practical experience students will have the opportunity to gain the skill and confidence to become successful pet stylists.
Students enrolled in the Basic Stylist Course will receive instruction in the rudimentary skills of bathing and brushing the various coat types found in all breeds of dogs and cats. Students will also learn puppy cuts, kennel cuts and breed specific cuts. In addition, they will acquire the knowledge necessary to trim the most common breeds of dogs (as well as basic styles for mixed breeds), learn Dog Behavior, Anatomy, Skin and Coat Care and become certified in dog and cat CPR. Upon graduation, they will have the skill and knowledge needed to succeed as an entry-level pet stylist. For those students interested in learning cat grooming, we will also cover this instruction in the course.
