National Association of Professional Creative Groomers

Promoting safety and education in the grooming industry since 2009

The NAPCG is the first and only organization dedicated to both the art and science of creative grooming. We are proud to announce the first official Creative Grooming Certification program available only through the NAPCG. This certification will help verify that your groomer has the proper education and knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of both canine/feline skin and coats, the chemistry behind coloring products, what products are safe as well as what products should never be used on animals, choosing the proper products for the proper coat types, and can utilize this information to produce safe and appealing creative grooms for their clients.

In an industry that is completely unregulated, it is paramount that pet owners choose a properly educated professional for any grooming services, but particularly when creative coloring is involved.
