the creator of JKL's Dog Grooming Courses
My name is Joy Waters, and I'm the owner/instructor of JKL Training Academy.
During the mid 1970's, I developed the JKL professional groomer training courses to provide more flexible and affordable groomer education, through distance learning.
In 1980, JKL Training Academy became a private career training institute of professional dog grooming.
As student enrollment grew, (in part due to the internet), I opted to retire from active grooming. This "retirement" is pretty busy at times, but it has enabled me to meet my own personal commitment to be one hundred per cent available to my students and grads.
As the recipient of diplomas from various sectors of the pet industry, several of which are cum laude, my adult life has pretty much been devoted to pets and their care.
