Imagine this:

An environment where you’re paid to develop a skill set that will follow you throughout your entire career. Where you’re actually paid to learn the skills required to bathe and groom dogs - a skill that you would normally have to pay a few thousand dollars for in Grooming School. If you have your sights set on becoming a Professional Groomer with a company where you’re part of an encouraging team, pushing you towards continuous development in the art of bathing and grooming, then this is the right position for you!

Can you picture it?

This is it! Healthy Spot is a fast-growing healthy pet lifestyle company and we're looking for passionate individuals to join our team as Full Time Apprentice Bathers. We are hiring in our Playa Vista location!

What will you do?

  • Learn! Our experienced trainers and management team work together to train you for success. We will teach you how to master all the skills required through our step-by-step and organized program.
  • Grow! Upon reaching the stage of a Professional Bather, you are then eligible to be nominated to our Grooming Apprenticeship, where you will begin the next stage of your journey. You’ll not only learn the basics of Grooming 101 but dive into creative techniques such as Japanese styling, hand stripping, and more!
  • Succeed! You'll feel proud to see the transformations in the dogs that you work on, and to know that they are leaving your care feeling happier (and better looking!) than when they walked in.

What do you need?

  • Well, you need to love dogs … Obviously!
  • You'll also need to really sit back and think whether this is your dream career or not! This is not just a "job”, but truly a new career with potential as a future Professional Groomer.
  • And last but not least, yourself! At Healthy Spot, we create an environment where you’re encouraged to be your true self every day.

The pay rate as an Apprentice starts at $16.50/hr, with pay raises (and tips) at each new level of the program. 

** Required availability is Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays**
