Need a Career Change? Pet Grooming!

Central Jersey Grooming Academy has been the perfect bridge for many looking to change careers over the past few years.

  • Dawn Ledbetter - Owner / Instructor - 7 Years ago I made the decision to take my 20 plus years of grooming experience and share that knowledge and training with students from all over New Jersey and New York. A career in Pet Grooming is the best choice I ever made and still can't believe that I get to go to work everyday and spend time with dogs.  You could live that same dream after attending Central Jersey Grooming Academy!
