About us:

Welcome to Grooming Arts Northwest, where we're more than just a company - we're a community dedicated to fostering a harmonious environment for exceptional work! Dog grooming isn't just a job for us; it's a passion that requires dedication, creativity, and a love for animals. Situated in our flagship location in NE Portland, each groomer enjoys their own private workroom (similar to veterinary offices), ensuring a peaceful and focused environment for top-tier grooming services.

As a business led by a Master Groomer, we prioritize excellence in grooming standards. Working toward Master Certification is a requirement for all groomers at Grooming Arts Northwest. While we provide guidance and financial assistance for your certification journey, we empower you to take ownership of your development. It's important to note that while we offer resources for ongoing skill development, Grooming Arts Northwest is not a grooming school. We are an employment opportunity where skilled groomers can practice their craft and earn a living.

At Grooming Arts Northwest, your voice matters. Kindness is our guiding principle, and we strive to ensure that every team member feels valued and appreciated. Join us in shaping the future of pet grooming, one happy tail at a time.
