Clip Shoppe School of Dog Grooming was established in 2014 to provide training and employable skills in the profession of pet grooming. Clip Shoppe School of Dog Grooming provides an atmosphere necessary for a Student to excel as an accomplished dog groomer.

The School was established by Sandy Fitzgerald, a grooming school graduate and successful business owner in the industry, to answer the need for trained dog groomers and the lack of grooming schools.

Clip Shoppe School of Dog Grooming’s philosophy is to develop the Students' skills to the fullest. Clip Shoppe School of Dog Grooming enables Students to graduate with experience and confidence by becoming competitive in the high demand pet care industry. Dog grooming allows for job security anywhere in the world. Our mission is to make grooming a happy and pleasant experience for both the groomer and the dog.

Our attractive 4,500 square foot facility is located on Route 23 South in Newfoundland, New Jersey. This facility is an up and running successful grooming and boarding business. There are three grooming rooms: a bathing and drying room, a finishing room and a private class room for quiet instruction and lecture. There is a break room for Students. Both male and female lavatories are available. This is a handicapped accessible facility. The facility is air-conditioned, heated, and is non-smoking.

The majority of instruction will be actual hands-on training, along with lecture and video instruction. Demonstrations and hands-on participation has proven to be an effective means of teaching as well as maintaining Student and pet safety.

Classes are in session 9:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday
and 8:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday.

We are closed all major holidays.
