Protecting your pet: North Carolina lacking regulations for pet groomers


RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Our pets are like family, so this is something you need to be aware of the next time you take them to get pampered.

But did you know there are no formal requirements to become a dog groomer in North Carolina – or any other state?

CBS 17 did some digging and found lawmakers in just two states are working to certify groomers. 

A search of the General Assembly found no such legislation in North Carolina.

Tuesday at 11 p.m., CBS 17’s Taniya Wright shows you what to look out for when taking your dog to be groomed.
