Grooming Apprentice

Meet our Groomers. At Woof Gang Bakery, a deep love of animals is the foundation of what makes our groomers so extraordinary. Each followed a calling, and went into dog grooming as a way to express their love, creativity, and true expertise with pups of all ages, sizes, and needs. From nail clipping and hand scissor techniques, to removing matted hair, to coloring and large breed management, our Groomers are the best in the field. We also have professional groomers available to help train those that might need a little help perfecting their grooming skills.

Woof Gang Bakery’s Grooming Apprenticeship Program allows you to embark on a rewarding career path. Through our four-to-five-month program, you will elevate your skills to the status of a professional pet groomer, and have the opportunity to earn $50,000-$80,000 a year.

Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming gives you maximum freedom to schedule the number of dogs that works for you. No pressure to add dogs and possibly jeopardize the quality of your work, which is key to our clients because they pay very well for your services.

You can expect to earn $80K-$100K per year, including 50% commission and tips. Let us take care of the phones and the booking. We give our experienced groomers all the autonomy they need to manage their own time.
