Danelle German is your guide through a video tour of her educational facility, The National Cat Groomers Institute of America – the only cat grooming school in the world! Located in Greenville, South Carolina, this facility was once a private home built during the early 1900’s. The original hardwood floors and other preserved features have been coupled with state-of-the-art cat grooming equipment. This unique combination makes for a wonderful learning environment when it comes to grooming felines.
The bathing room outfitted with Forever Stainless Mini Tubs.
The drying room is complete with Catty Shack Vac™ drying systems and Romani dryers.
The grooming room has ten stations with cat grooming tables, Clipper Vacs, and storage for grooming equipment.
