  ABOUT WSPPG
 

WSPPG History
 

Recognizing the growing demand for professional pet groomers, WSPPG Director, Delores Lillge, began working on the development of a grooming course in 1984.  Drawing on her vast experience in the pet industry, she structured the course curriculum to provide a consistent and professional method of instruction which could be accomplished through practical experience, classroom theory, lecture and demonstrations.

Upon evaluation of the school's policies, instructional methods and curriculum,  the state of Wisconsin Educational Approval Board granted WSPPG permission to commence enrolling of students in 1985.  Through the input of WSPPG staff and faculty members, as well as industry professionals, the course has been expended over the years to encompass a broad spectrum of  pet related topics.  In October of 1991 through October, 1995, the Wisconsin School of Professional Pet Grooming was accredited nationally by The Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology.

School Philosophy

The Wisconsin School of Professional Pet Grooming, Inc. is dedicated to educational excellence and providing students and graduates with the skills needed to maintain a high level of professionalism. This has been done and will continue to be achieved through a comprehensive program of classroom theory and lecture, combined with the practical application of modern grooming techniques on dogs from ALL CANINE BREED GROUPS.

This philosophy of a complete education has helped to create individuals with the skills necessary to become competitive and highly sought-after members of the pet grooming industry, thus opening doors to a variety of career options for graduates.

The Professional Pet Grooming Course

The Professional Pet Grooming Course is based on a step-by-step approach to teaching the art of grooming. It consists of one hour of theory and six practical hours of grooming each day.

WSPPG is the only school in the country to guarantee students practical hands-on experience in grooming all groups of canine breeds. Students begin by performing basic grooming techniques and then progress to more difficult grooming projects throughout the course as their theoretical knowledge and grooming skills develop.

During the classroom theory portion of the course, students become completely familiar with the breed history, characteristics, temperaments and grooming standards of 135 plus dog breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC). Upon completion of the Professional stylist 600 Hr. course, each graduate will have a minimum of 400 hours of practical experience in grooming and be qualified to groom dogs from all AKC breed groups.

Certificate of Completion

Students, upon completion of all course requirements, are awarded a Certificate of Completion as evidence that they have been trained by a reputable Career College.
