NGAC has been working for years on bringing all groomers under one governing body to be recognized as a Profession, allowing for all groomers and pet grooming businesses to be registered as practitioners, elevating groomers to a higher level in animal safety skills. This will offer the public and all pet owners increased consumer confidence and above all animal safety and care when they are entrusted to a groomer/business for animal pet grooming.
