    I want to become a groomer!

    IMO you will be very very very hard to find a job while taking a online grooming course. this is a job where you need hands on learning, not book work. I dont know any groomers who would hire some one with just online schooling. this is not a easy job where text work will help you. you...

    How often do you get paid?

    I get paid every week. I'm paid a commission. so all depends how many dogs I groom and how expensive their groom was. I make around the same eery week give or take 100 bucks or so. so its easy for me to figure out what it will be. And if i want extra, I book extra clients.
