The California state legislature is currently considering a bill that would establish regulation for the field of pet groomers. If adopted, the legislation will provide rules and regulations related to the practice of pet grooming, bathing and brushing. Anyone who advertises or conducts business as a pet groomer would be required to secure a license from the state in order to practice. The proposed legislation includes an appropriate fee structure for pet grooming and would establish a Grooming Council that would be responsible for administrating the regulatory requirements. The legislation is set to come into effect in 2017.
