Distinctive Dogs Academy is all about the well-being of the pets we care and love for. For business owner Cindie Law, the goal is to provide the pet service community with highly qualified pet stylists, giving certified graduates the skill and confidence to groom any dog or cat. The Academy is the only certified postsecondary education pet grooming school in Las Vegas and one of the few state-certified schools in the country.

Distinctive Dogs Academy provides basic skills in pet grooming and care. Students will learn brush and bathing techniques; most common breed haircuts; dog anatomy and health; grooming business basics; shear and slipper skills; and other professional techniques.

A full time course is 250 hours, which takes about 8-12 weeks of intensive training to complete. The course consists of 30 hours of classroom lecture, training videos and written exams. The remaining hours involve hands-on training with actual pets. Class size is limited to five students with highly qualified instructors. Students can set their own schedule with classes given seven days a week at a reasonable tuition cost.

Distinctive Dogs Academy is also a professional pet grooming spa and salon, offering same day service at affordable prices. For pet owners looking only for the best, the Academy brings unparalleled services in professional grooming, pet day care, full spa treatment of dogs, sensory therapy treatment, pet sitting, and even holds slumber parties with pick-up and delivery services.

Law and her staff give pet owners peace of mind. Their dog and cat daycare will give our pets care and warmth in an environment filled with lots of love. At a cost of only $15 a day, dogs and cats will have an area to play (not kenneled), food and water, treats, and a walk in the park. The day will be filled with great fun and rewards!

For Paw Spa Day, dogs will be greeted by a friendly staff. Pets will be draped in fashionable terry robes and slippers. During the day, the pampered pet will receive an aromatherapy bath, hand brush dry out, "paw-d-cure", sensory therapy and any hair cut in a private room. It is a treat that our dogs will love.

Distinctive Dogs Academy offers holistic pet therapy similar to the T-Touch method. Sensory treatment sessions have long lasting therapeutic value for pets, lasting from 35 to 60 minutes addressing problem areas. Along with proper care and nutrition, the sessions can relieve pain/stress for dogs suffering from hip dysplasia, joint pain, dogs who are facing surgery or who have just had surgery. Also, the treatment is great for dogs that just gave birth or elderly dogs. Owners will see a difference in their dog!

Law focuses her tireless energy in training professional groomers, caring for pets and expanding her business. She is excited about the gay and lesbian community, as she knows that their furry friends are their children and would spare no expense on the care and grooming of their loved ones. Distinctive Dogs Academy also has a unique boutique selling pet clothing, toys and plush and holistic food, as well as a barkery selling Canidae, Solid Gold and Evengers Hand Packed USA Premium Pet Food.

The Academy is a member of the National Dog Grooming Association of America, ADGAA, Chamber of Commerce, and American Professional Pet Stylist Association (APPSA). They provide free consultations, free estimates and offer senior and multiple pet discounts.
