National Dog Groomers Assn. of America (NDGAA)

Welcome to the NDGAA, the National Dog Groomers Association of America! For over 34 years this association has worked with groomers throughout the world promoting and encouraging professionalism and education in order to upgrade the image of the pet grooming profession. Our goal is to unite groomers through membership, to promote communication with colleagues, to set recognized grooming standards and to offer those seeking a higher level of professional recognition the opportunity to have their grooming skills certified. With nearly 2,500 names and addresses of Registered and Certified members this directory is a great tool for recommending members for your relocating clients, enables you to communicate with other members and serves as an aid in policing advertising infringement in your area. The NDGAA Membership Directory is printed biannually. We began the process of federally registering two of our well recognized and long used service marks in 1991, the dog/striped pole logo and the National Certified Master GroomerŽ phrase. Registration of these marks will provide the legal leverage to enforce our rights and stop unauthorized use of the logo and NCMG phrase. 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 MasterCardŽ was introduced in 1995. The credit card program designed especially for NDGAA members! The card proudly displays the NDGAA Logo, identifying you as a distinguished member every time you use it. Good news about bad accounts! National Credit Systems, Inc. will help you Collect Your Money! Added benefits in 1999 include an electronic credit service for accepting credit cards and a mobile groomers insurance plan for members nationwide which includes coverage for vehicle downtime! Free Legal help when you need it! No need to enroll, you are automatically enrolled as a member of NDGAA. We also publish "Groomers Voice," the official publication of the NDGAA.
