About Us

Central Jersey Grooming Academy was formed out of a strong interest for individuals to learn pet grooming as a career. Furthermore, as a pet grooming business for more than 10 years, we were continually frustrated at the level of education and proficiency our new employees were showing after graduating from other schools. We often had to re-train new graduates on the most basic tasks.

Therefore, we decided to offer a level of education that would instruct students properly from the beginning. When you graduate from Central Jersey Grooming Academy, you will not only receive a certificate of completion, but will be fully prepared for a professional grooming career. To us, a professional grooming education does not simply give you grooming competency, it means you've reached a level of competency, comfortability and professionalism.

Our 2,400 sq. foot facility was specifically designed for ease of instruction and the health and safety of each pet that comes in.

Our goal is to teach you professional, humane and stress-free grooming. Most importantly, regardless of where you start your career, you will leave Central Jersey Grooming Academy with a sense of completion and professionalism that enables you to hit the ground running!
