Personal interviews can be arranged by calling: 1 (940) 569-2229 

Yuppie Puppy Studios is located at 516 Harwell Street, Burkburnett, Texas. 76354 

After you have completed our Employment Application, Training and Compatibility Questionnaire we will have the opportunity to get to know each other better during the actual interview. 

It should be understood this training and employment opportunity should not be viewed as just a job, but as a Mentor - Apprentice relationship for the purpose of developing professional pet grooming skills and knowledge to become a valued employee of Yuppie Puppy Studios - GROOMOLOGY® Staff.

We expect a person selected for this opportunity to submit to a Training Agreement and commit to an Employment Contract. Our "Business Policies", "Health & Safety Standards, and Rules of Practice" are what make our pet grooming services and employee training different from other pet grooming training providers and employers.

Handling and Caring for other people’s dogs is not like handling and caring for your own pet dog. Professional commercial pet grooming and hygiene pet care will bring you into contact with various dog breeds with different breed temperaments, personalities handling and grooming requirements. Working intelligently, safely, and humanely with different dog breeds, size dogs, of varied behaviors, temperaments, strengths, weights, requires you to be in good mental, physical, and emotion health. Exposure to pet grooming occupational hazards such as chemical products, Zoononic diseases, parasite diseases, and infectious pathogens are health risks you will be trained to minimize and prevent.

As an Apprentice/Trainee employed and schooled at Yuppie Puppy Studios you will receive one on one guidance and instruction during your hands on training and work assignment experiences. Part of your training includes academic knowledge provided during work hour study sessions and discussions in a classroom school type setting. Studies and discussions in areas of pet and personal health, safety and pet related grooming sciences is an important part of your apprenticeship educational training. Information and knowledge that is often under valued if not omitted and overlooked by others offering pet grooming instruction and training.

Other than your  relationship with the owners during your training  your work hours will be spent mainly focused on handling and caring for dogs. So, if you see yourself as more of a "people person" this type of work and employment may not be for you and you should consider a different career other than grooming pets.

Our Training and Education is employer and employee paced and provided during work hour assignments. You must have an above average capacity and desire to learn, an ability to make a personal commitment, be receptive to physical, mental, and emotional discipline instructions and daily challenges of a learning work environment. Deficiencies in any of those areas may influence,  skill training, knowledge development, personal performance progress and pet comfort and safety.
