Virginia School of Pet Grooming's Training Facility in Manassas Park

Metro force air dryers for those breeds that can benefit from its use are under each shower stall and there are four under the trough tub. There are six drying tables for final drying of those pets. Each table has a forced air dryer mounted underneath and there will also be four stand dryers there for you convenience.

Our bathing supplies come from our personally designed injector system that allows you to bathe and dip pets with pre-diluted chemicals. Our premixed hot and cold water allows for more efficient and safer water temperature. Our facility also comes equipped with a central vacuuming system that is more convenient for the student and quieter/less scary for the pet.

The facility has a large comfortable lounge. A full size side by side refrigerator with water and ice dispenser, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher and a TV/VCR/CD player (for a relaxing time or viewing those school training videos in quiet and comfort) is right down the hall. Pack your lunch for savings or eat at the near by restaurants. Of course, there is always plenty of free parking available at our school.

Our new building will also house a full scale cat and dog luxury boarding area, along with a full service animal hospital, doggie day care and all levels of obedience training classes. In your spare time you can observe/ learn additional business aspects of this ever growing pet care industry.


For the out of state students, we now offer on site dormitory facilities. The dorm has a private bath and plenty of secure, individual storage. Private laundry is also available. The adjacent student lounge will be available with TV/VCR/DVD as well as refrigerator, microwave, coffee-maker & hot sync for wireless internet. Linens are provided or feel free to supply your own. Our facility is protected by all of the advanced fire and safety equipment that is 24-7 monitored and also a security system that will protect you and your belongings 24-7. A special security swipe key will be issued to you so you can come and go as you please. There is plenty of shopping, restaurants, movies and of course, we are only minutes away from Washington D.C.
