💛Welcome Steph Petro💜
As a Professional Pet Groomer and Tellington Touch Practitioner I have always had a passion for helping animals and pets. I have joined the WWPGA not only because I value their mission, but it reflects what I stand for as a groomer. I want to support an organization that supports groomers worldwide. An association that stands to regulate the grooming industry to protect all the fur babies and groomers alike. I am proud to support and be part of the Worldwide Pet Grooming Association.
💛Welcome Colleen Zuber💜
Colleen from Muddy Paws in the Guild says this "I became a pet groomer to help the dogs feel better, look better and be healthier. Dogs traditionally don’t groom over winter months. This is the time we would be seeing pelted coats, long toe nails. Fleas and ticks. Hot spots and abrasions from pelted fur. I believe it’s my responsibility as a pet groomer to help these dogs to be healthier To feel better. It’s the animals welfare that’s at state now. They have been through this COVID19 as well. They have supported their people. They deserve RESPECT"

As a kid I've always wanted to be a veterinarian, as animals we're always my passion .. succeeded and practiced for over 20 years and throughout, have accomplished in becoming a paralegal advocate, author, senior master groomer, behavioralist and nutrition consultant and have a rescue. Today, studying hard in becoming an animal by law officer as I feel they deserve to be treated with kindness compassion and respect... No matter how hard the day gets by some of these fussy beings, the gratitude I feel at the end of the day is like no other. 40 years in the animal industry.

💛Welcome Anthony and Tanya💜
We joined the Association for our belief in how important grooming is for the pets. All animals need regular grooming to maintain optimum health. During the current pandemic there was a lot of confusion about where groomers stood in respect to legislation with Bi law officials and others within the grooming industry as well.
Tanya -My learning throughout my years as a groomer have taught me how important grooming is for the health and welfare of animals from many many mentors including fellow groomers and Veterinarians alike have all stated their opinions on this matter.
Anthony has always been passionate about the health and wellness of animals and believed it was just common sense to have animals groomed regularly for their health and for pet owners to have touchable clean pets.
💛Welcome Kristy Gardiner 💜
I became a groomer to help pets. I wanted to pamper them and make pets feel their best and hey, look cute too! Why not?! I have an overwhelming passion for grooming elderly clients and pets with grooming fears. Nothing fills my heart more than an old blind pup with the cutest head tilt or a pup who’s lost an eye and needs to look his best to feel his best!
Grooming is essential to an animals health & well-being. I am proud to be apart of an organization that brings a voice to our industry!
