This commitment is an extension of Well Groomed Pets' philosophy to holistically care for every pet, placing equal importance on emotional well-being as on physical appearance. The goal is to redefine the grooming experience not just as a necessary routine, but as a delightful event for both pets and their owners.
In a statement regarding the commitment to Fear Free Certification for all team members, Michael Hill, CEO of Well Groomed Pets, said, "This collaboration with Fear Free represents a monumental step in our ongoing mission to revolutionize the pet care industry. By incorporating Fear Free's techniques and philosophies into our franchise system, we are not only raising the bar for pet grooming standards but also actively enhancing the emotional well-being of the pets we serve.

Fear Free's Animal Groomer Certification launched in 2018 and teaches groomers how to utilize Fear Free techniques to care for the emotional wellbeing of pets in their care and ensure the grooming experience is as enjoyable as possible for pets and pet parents.
