Pet Grooming Certifications

Are you interested in a career working with animals? Receiving your professional pet grooming certification has never been so easy! Petropolis Academy offers open enrollment to work with your busy schedule.

The Petropolis Academy of Pet Grooming began training future pet groomers in 1993.  Located at Petropolis Pet Center in St. Louis, our 22,000 square foot complex is the first of its kind in the country. The Pet Grooming School is certified to operate by the Missouri Coordinating Board of Higher Education, and is approved as an International Society of Canine Cosmetologists Certified Pet Styling School.

Students who are enrolled in the Basic Grooming 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.
