  • New Member in PA - Interested in the field

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Michelle, married w/ a little boy (8 months). I am currently working F/T in an office and I am looking for something different. I have always loved animals and when I was small I wanted to be a Veterinarian - I just never pursued it - stupidly. Anyway.... I have been interested in the art of grooming for a while now... and now I am seriously interested in taking the steps toward pursuing this interest. To be honest, I didn't pursue it sooner b/c I wasn't sure how to ... and I still am not sure... but I know I want a change... I am tired of my same-ole-same-ole desk job.

    I tried to find schools in my area, but they are too far away for me to get to... I thought about on-line training but I would truly prefer a hands-on approach as that is how I learn better. For now, I need to learn about the field and I am looking to do this P/T until I know I can make some money to help support my household. We can't afford for me to quit my job at this time.

    Any help or advice anyone may have would be nice. Also I'd be interested in your experiences as well. I appreciate your time... and I hope to be a groomer as you are sometime soon. Thanks again!

      My suggestion to you would be to go to nearby shop and inquire about being a bather. Tell the owner your interested in getting into the field and see what they have to offer. I know if you were closer to me I'd hire you! A good bather is priceless for a busy shop.
      Good luck!

          Diamienono - I too am from outside the Reading area. I currently work in Mt Penn which is about 20 mins from my home. I appreciate your offer to possibly help me out. How long have you been in the field and what do you think of it? Thanks.
