I could definately use some guidance in the non-compete area.  Could you forward a copy of your contract/agreement to me?  Thanks in advance.

Talk to a local lawyer about the laws in your area, have him/her draw you one up. I showed my lawyer a contract that a shop owner wanted me to sign and he laughed saying it was a  illegal piece of crap.

Ditto on consulting a Lawyer about laws. Could you be more specific as to what the Lawyer said was illegal crap? Your in Michigan right? 
Did your laughing Lawyer respect your profession enough to offer to prepare a contract for you to present back to the employer so you could use it as an alternative contract offer?

A Contract can and should be seen/used as a professionals negotiation tool. When pet grooming employers and employees finally adopt Contracts as a employment business standard, then and only then will we become truly recognized and respected for the professionals we really are.

This was around 20 years ago, I don't remember much that was written, it was pretty "roughly crafted". I did not want to work for that shop owner after that.
Yes, I'm in MI. The people who work at my shop do not sign a non-compete contract. I have a basic contract, written by my lawyer, which just spells out what is expected of both parties.

Hummm? Basic Contract for pet grooming and your lawyer did not include a NON-COMPETE CLAUSE ?
I have to wonder what else might be missing since NON-COMPETE is just one of a number of basic agreements included in all professional service employment contracts.
You might want to have your Basic Contract reviewed by another Lawyer? (jas) - just a suggestion 

I am sure Rosiegal as I, would be interested in what you can share that your employees and
you have agreed to in your basic contract. Please share what you and your employees have agreed is your expectations as an employer and
what your employees and you have agreed to be the expectations of your employees ?
