We strive to inspire professionals in our industry by promoting proper grooming education for all levels of experience. Our goal to elevate industry standards starts with teaching like minded individuals how to establish a healthy work environment while advancing their techniques.
Your future, starts here.
Opened in 1970 our family owned business was a dream of my mother throughout the 53 years we have been in business in the same location many have passed through our doors some have continued in our wonderful profession & others just stopped by during a period of time in their life. Not everyone is meant for grooming the passion is only there for some; we are few, we are select and we are magnificent. Those of us that have a special connection with pets as well as a creative eye and possess a natural handling skills are called upon for great things. This career is simply not a job. My vision for The Groomology Institute of Texas LLC was not only to teach Professional Pet Styling at the Breed Standard level it is also to give our industry a Phase II in our career. We spend most of our life physically working, struggling, holding, lifting all the while being as gentle as we can, not to mention the not so nice clients who sometimes makes us want to throw in the towel. How long can we last? I have worked for 35 years and had no retirement, no Plan B, no idea what was next. Working to the age of 65 gets really difficult when you have to limit yourself. My employees are family and I thought about them, what can I offer so I can give back to them when they can no longer endure the rigorous schedule of grooming? All of their efforts, loyalty and knowledge just get thrown out the window?
I have created Plan B!! This Institute will not only be the stepping stone for new Beginners it will Also be the Phase 2 for Groomers who are ready to set the clippers down and begin teaching.
