Carrie Peterson - Owner / Teacher Maltese Groom

I am Carrie Peterson a longtime Maltese mom of Maltese for 20 years and a previous AKC Maltese Show Breeder.  I retired from breeding and showing in 2007 but still own my lovely pet “Maybelline”. I love to teach other pet owners Maltese owners how to groom at home. I have always chosen to groom at home it is safer for my Maltese, and it saves me money and time!  You can do it too, I will teach you how. This grooming course will cover all bases to make you feel equipped and ready to give your Maltese the best care. My love for the Maltese breed and love for people have come together into a successful online community and grooming online school. I now offer training through my Inner Circle at


If you charged $450.00 for you’re course they wouldn’t have said a word. I raised, bred and showed Arabian horses for 30 years and found out that the more you ask for the more you and you’re animal was respected. When I first started out and gave much lower prices, trying to help the buyer also or so I thought but I soon learned that the horse was not treated the way it should be. Long story short , sometimes it just hurts when you try to help others out.

The course is fabulous!! I love that it is information from someone I can trust and that I can watch as many times as I like. I am learning so much and Tallulah has evolved very quickly from an anxious little puppy when she first came home to me at 12 weeks old into a calm little angel or bathing and grooming are concerned at 10 months. Thank you Carrie. You have given me the skills I need to care for my dream little Maltese, and the confidence to keep her coat long. Some thing I didn’t think I could ever do. My hand doesn’t shake when I hold my scissors anymore!

I want to thank you for all that you do for us at Maltese Grooming Academy. (love the name). I have learned so much from you and all the products that you have recommended… brushes, diet, shampoos, etc, plus all the little tips that I would have never thought of, as well as your educational videos which are awesome. You are so generous in sharing your knowledge and the gift of your experiences for OUR  Maltese.

Thank You Carrie for all the information you have given me. Without your help, I might not have been able to give the care that my “Prince” has needed. Thank You, and keep it coming. You’re great at what you do and know.
