About Us

The American Academy of Pet Grooming (AAOPG) was founded by Ilys Posner, a former New York City school teacher.  Located in the heart of Manhattan near the bustling Baruch College campus, the school offers a fully-licensed and comprehensive curriculum for those interested in either beginning a new career or changing the career they already have.

 

Graduates have come from the stages of Broadway and the back offices of Wall Street.  It makes no difference what your career has been, students come to AAOPG for one purpose – they love pets and they are seeking a career that is incredibly rewarding, satisfying, and lucrative.


The AAOPG Has An Incredible 98% Placement Rate For Its Graduating Students

Some graduates move on to become pet groomers at some of New York City’s most prestigious pet grooming enterprises, while others start their own successful businesses in and around the tri-state area.

 

With more that five million pets, New York City is the pet capital of the world!
