Professional pet groomers are being permitted to return to work throughout most of California. In addition to the recommended protocol set forth by the CPPGA, additional protocol may be set in place by individual cities and/or counties. 

It is the recommendation of the CPPGA that all sanitation and safe distancing protocols be followed to avoid further spread of the Covid-19 virus.

We ask that everyone stay safe, stay healthy and take care of yourself and your clients.
