Grooming School

The Pet Salon Academy

The Pet Salon Academy is a grooming school that takes place at a full service pet salon with over 8,000 active clients. Our President and Lead Instructor, Donna Williams, has 25 years of grooming experience and believes that all students must have a desire to pursue a high quality of grooming skills, while maintaining the highest level of safety and care for each dog. All students are trained and guided using a hands-on training approach, which she believes, is the most efficient way for each student to have the skill and confidence to immediately begin a career as a professional groomer or business owner. Training classes are held at The Dog House Pet Salon, which has two locations: 5917 Richmond Ave, Houston, TX 77057 and 6434 Washington Ave, Houston, TX 77007.

The Pet Salon Academy offers 3 types of training programs: The PET BATHER, THE BASIC AND THE PET GROOMER.
