Creating a future where companion animal grooming is an enjoyable experience for both the animals and the pet groomer.
Nurturing a new generation of pet groomers whom uphold a strong code of ethics, empathise well with animals whilst being theoretically and technically skilled with pet handling and styling.
WHY WE EXIST
We see a pressing need to place greater emphasis on companion animal handling and treatment as well as communication with pet guardians during grooming sessions.
We strongly advocate for humane handling and would like to encourage and educate our future generations of pet care professionals to put the animals in their care as their utmost priority.
On top of having exceptional handling skills, our students will learn outstanding grooming techniques to bring out the best in any companion animal as well as learn how to communicate effectively with pet guardians.
Graduates of Humane Grooming Institute for Companion Animals will go out to be strong advocates for voiceless animals.
