Please Oppose SB 969 Pet Grooming Bill!

SB969 has passed the Senate Business, Professional and Economic Development Committee and has passed the Senate Appropriations Committee, and now goes to the full House.  Please contact the committee members and your own Senator  about SB969.

  • This bill would further strain the state’s budget for a program regulating the bathing and brushing of pets.
  • The proposed council would be composed primarily of individuals who know nothing about professional grooming practices.
  • This bill would adversely affect dog show handlers, groomers and junior handlers under the age of 18, all of whom groom for financial compensation.
  • The exact type of pet covered by this bill is not specified; it could be any sort of pet from a hamster to a horse.
