ABC dog grooming students receive more equipment than those of our other programs. Dog groomers need good clippers, blades, scissors, combs and much, much more in order to start their dog grooming careers properly. Prior to launching our Dog Groomer Program, we searched for many years to find a company that could give us both the quality of grooming supplies and service we expected for our students. Groomer's Choice is that company, and we’re proud to have them as the company that supplies the grooming kit to our students. To find out more about Groomer’s Choice, click on their logo.
In addition, we’ve recently partnered with Andis to provide our students with some of their essential grooming supplies. For more information about this fine company and their products, visit the Andis website.
