We, as professional Groomers, promise to accept our responsibility when caring for all pets. We shall enhance their beauty through proper grooming skills to help in the creation and style best suited the individual pet and its owner, and to continuously educate ourselves and our patrons in the proper care and welfare of their pets. We promise to set an example of good will and integrity, show affectionate understanding and gentleness to all, and always perform our duties in a humane manner.
