Standards and Ethics

The Professional Pet Groomers and Stylists Alliance is an historic collaboration by grooming and styling professionals. It is an effort by groomers for groomers, pet owners and the pets themselves. Members of the Alliance include the three major national dog grooming and styling associations, two major national cat grooming and styling associations, the major Canadian styling association, several state groomer groups, a nationally-accredited grooming school, allied trade organizations, major retailers who offer pet grooming and service providers.



PPGSA began with a meeting at SuperZoo 2014 and a desire to “put common sense to paper” regarding the standards of care taught to professional groomers. Its goal is to assure the uniformity of care and safety standards taught by Alliance member organizations through their certification and/or training programs AND to help educate pet owners about the importance of care and safety standards when choosing pet groomers and stylists.
