Thank you for your interest in our school. Shari Mathews-Gallegos is the instructor and has over 34 years experience in pet grooming. If you love animals and want a rewarding career, then pet grooming may be for you. Shari graduated with top honors in her class from Tara Lara School of Dog Grooming on February 6, 1982 and became State Certified. She worked for a local veterinarian until she opened Shari’s Pampered Pets February 5, 1985 . Shari has been grooming and training in her own shop ever since. Shari has trained several students over the years. She has worked one on one with several individuals and she has also trained students through the D.V.R (Division of Vocational Rehab) through the State of New Mexico.
Shari finally decided it was time to open a official school, due to the extreme need of professionally trained groomers. A good groomer is hard to find because professional groomers are in dire need. Shari believes in doing hands on training, you can not learn to do a professional, quality grooming unless you are properly trained. Class sizes are limited, so that each student gets the one on one time needed to become a successful groomer in this career. At Shari’s Pampered Pets we want you to be the Best Groomer you can be!! We believe in Quality Grooming not quantity!! At Dog Grooming School by Shari’s you will be trained in Professional Pet Grooming for Dogs & Cats of various breeds. You will learn the skills to completely groom from start to finish. Grooming doesn’t only make pets look and smell great, it also important for their health and well being. So as a groomer you are doing a service for the owner and giving the pet a wonderful gift.
