On May 14, 1993 the NDGAA "Striped Pole and Poodle Logo" was issued Registration No. 1,755,787 on the Principle Register at the United States Patent and Trademark Office.  The National Certified Master Groomer phrase was issued on October 11, 1994, Registration No.1858,295 on the Supplemental Register at the United States Patent and Trademark Office.  It is a violation to use said logo or state Certified or Registered Membership without the permission of the National Dog Groomers Association of America, Inc.  Registration of these marks provide the legal leverage to enforce our rights and stop unauthorized use of the logo and the NCMG phrase.  In this way we can ensure that our symbol and certification signify the highest quality grooming services available and that these high standards are maintained for the future of the profession.  NDGAA remains the only organization to solidify their trademarks to protect our members professional integrity.
