National Association of Professional Creative Groomers NAPCG

The National Association of Professional Creative Groomers was founded in 2009 to provide groomers with the necessary information to understand and effectively utilize creative grooming techniques in the salon as well as the competition ring without compromising the comfort or safety of the animal involved. While the NAPCG benefits groomers, we serve the animals as we promote safety and quality in creative grooming by defining and supporting standards of excellence for the grooming industry. Through NAPCG-sponsored lectures and educational material such as exclusive publications, groomers are able to expand their repertoire of professional skills beyond the basics, increasing their business’ marketability while safely unleashing their creativity.

Whether a groomer is a seasoned creative competitor or simply looking for new, exciting techniques to introduce into their salon, the NAPCG has something to offer. A membership with the organization, subscription to CGQ: Creative Groomer Quarterly, participation in workshops, webinars, and lectures are excellent ways to start learning or to add to existing creative knowledge.

The NAPCG is the only educational organization that offers a certification program (both written and practical examinations) for the professional groomer to accomplish a higher level of education. The NAPCG certification program ensures that groomers understand the safety concerns involved with creative grooming while also helping address the legitimate concerns of clients and pet owners.

We also have a store for specialty creative products. Please visit our website for more information.

In this way we can ensure that our symbol & certification signify the highest quality grooming services available and that these high standards are maintained for the future of the profession. Registration of these marks was granted in 1993. When you rent a car from Hertz, you can take advantage of special year round savings through the Hertz member benefit program added in 1995. NDGAA members receive a Hertz Member Discount Card. The NDGAA Gold MasterCard® was introduced in 1995. The credit card program designed especially for NDGAA members!

Wisconsin Association of Professional Pet Stylists

The Wisconsin Association of Professional Pet Stylists began as not only the first non-profit organization in the state of it's kind- but more so, as an idea to create something larger than one's self as a certification, educational, and networking medium for all interested stylists to have and benefit from.

Although our roster is ever changing, our goals and ideals remain the same.
We all work together to give each member every possible medium to increase their knowledge, to broaden their field of opportunity, and to better themselves and their business potential. We work to facilitate social and educational guidance and support from peers and fellow professionals.

We offer camaraderie, support and networking whenever needed.

We firmly believe in giving all that we can to members in order to grow and be a positive asset to the grooming industry; and thus raising the bar of professionalism, safety and client care throughout our state.

As a group, we strongly believe that education is the key not only to success, but also to change.
Challenges improve our ability and our confidence. Respect among peers gives us all a common platform on which to work for the upstanding ethics and professional ideals of all pet stylists. The resources and knowledge that each individual can bring to the table and share with others is invaluable, and through that networking, the opportunity for personal and professional growth is immense.

Without our members, we could not exist, and our members' needs and interests are at the heart of every part of our association. Please click here to visit our web site.
