Getting Certified as a Dog Groomer 

      1. Although there are no laws or regulations in the United States requiring dog groomers to be licensed, there are optional certification test sites across the U.S. where a groomer can earn the prestigious rank of Certified Master Groomer. This credential is unquestionably an asset in the job force and is highly recommended. Individuals with the title often make 10 percent  more than those without the rank. Certification enables you to join the National Dog Groomers Association of America (NDGAA)
