"I love working for a company that puts humanity over vanity and safety is the number one concern. What's best for the pet, always! EVERYONE is accepted as they are! Fair pay and benefits are also other reasons I love to work here. A huge part of what we do in the salons and the focus we really drive home around, is educating Pet parents about the importance of grooming, nutrition, training and overall wellness, we are really a one-stop shop and we CARE about pets living their BEST life! That's why we're called the Health & Wellness company!"

"I enjoy being a part of the Petco team! Through Petco, I learned how to care for and groom dogs in a salon, and also how to become a leader and a trainer. I started as a dog bather - now I train groomers and develop training programs and presentations! It is so rewarding to teach and share my love of grooming, to help groomers and watch them grow in their careers."
