At Petco, we’re passionate about pets and completely dedicated to improving their lives and the lives of the people who love them. We’re also one of the most dynamic retailers in the pet-supply industry. Our ongoing growth is creating exceptional opportunities with professional development and personal enrichment throughout our organization. From our retail stores and our network of Distribution Centers to our Corporate offices, you'll work with others who share your values and commitment. We seek those individuals who are passionate about animal welfare, have great people skills and are driven to grow and advance in their careers with us. With your contributions, we will continue to experience strong growth as a respected pet-supply retailer.

Helping pets look and feel their best – what a great way to start a rewarding career! That’s exactly what this opportunity offers as you provide basic grooming/bathing services and exceptional customer service.

Working under the direction of the Pet Stylist, Grooming Salon Manager or General Manager, you will perform basic grooming services on dogs that do not require a haircut as a part of their grooming service. This may include brushing, bathing, cleaning ears and trimming nails. You will also assist the Pet Stylist as needed, which may include bathing, conditioning and blow drying of dogs.

When not grooming pets, you will also be called on to generate business for the grooming salon by calling customers who have not been in recently for grooming services or handing out flyers to customers in the store.


We’re seeking those who are passionate about helping pets look their best and who demonstrate basic knowledge of the grooming industry. You must be able to interact professionally and effectively with customers and prioritize multiple tasks on short deadlines. The ability to lift up to 50 pounds is also required. A high school diploma or its equivalent (GED) is preferred.
