Carrie Peterson - Owner / Teacher Maltese Groom
Carrie Peterson Instructor

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 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; called Maltese Grooming Academy!

“I have purchased the Maltese Academy and groomed my Maltese, Holly for the first time after reviewing the courses. She came out better than I expected and would never have been able to do it without your grooming courses. Very informative.”

Academy Student

“I love the ability to watch the videos at my place and in succession of the grooming process.
15:26 I am so thankful for the information as I’m learning to groom my 1st maltese. Much of what I’m learning is applicable to grooming my son’s yorkie and my shih tzu mix as well. I’m enjoying it and the dogs are more relaxed than going to the groomer. We’re all happier!!!”

“I enjoy your services and am more than happy to pay. You are an experienced professional. I have already learned so much and haven’t even gotten through all the videos. I appreciate you for having your recommended products listed on Amazon as well. I frankly have wasted a lot of money buying brushes combs etc that don’t work. Now I know what to get that works.”

Academy Student

“If you charged $450.00 for your 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.
