  • Since completing my Pet Grooming Program, I'm now open for business. Penn Foster provided me with the skills and confidence to open my business. If you have a desire to pursue a career as a pet groomer, or if Penn Foster offers a program of interest to you, go for it! Penn Foster offers a generous amount of support. The material was easy to understand with plenty of references for additional follow-up. Online exams generated prompt results and online assessment of my daily progress was invaluable.
