About Just Four Paws Academy of Pet Styling

Just Four Paws Academy of Pet Styling opened in 2007 and is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Board of Private Licensed Schools. We have offered a 300-hour diploma program in Professional Dog Styling since we opened and we are excited to announce that in December of 2013 we were approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to offer a new 600-hour diploma program in Advanced Pet Styling!

You may wonder how you can go to school for 8-16 weeks and really learn quality pet styling when other school programs may be longer. Training success in any field is all about the quality of the program. The Golden Paws method of teaching is unique. Each step in the grooming process is broken down so the student quickly learns the styling skills needed to create beautifully finished breed designs or customize a style the customer desires.

Our head instructor is a Nationally Certified Master Groomer through the National Dog Groomers Association of American and is proficient in the training program. Each instructor aligns his or her styling skills alongside each instructional step in the program. Each one of these steps builds the framework needed in order for students to develop their skills. For this reason, it is essential for both the instructor and the student to follow the program steps in a systematic manner. We work with each student on an individual basis to help them reach their fullest potential. Our main priority is the student. Therefore, if you need an extra week to feel comfortable, one will be provided at no charge.

The most important part of any training program is for you to receive the very best training. You owe it to yourself to see why graduates who have been trained in the Golden Paws method go on to start successful careers and businesses!
