Best pet grooming by far. I live in Miami and it's totally worth the drive. I tried several places in my area and nothing compares to Pets Playground Pet Grooming School. They are professional, clean, love my dog, my dog loves them, and very important: they know how to groom the different breeds. 200% recommended

My dog and I are new to Florida and I needed a good, caring groomer that would take care of my senior baby. I explained that she had had surgery on both of her back legs. They do an excellent job with her to not only give her a great service but to be gentle and attentive to her needs. She doesn’t have the usual anxiety that she has going into the groomers and she comes back a happy, beautiful doggie!

I just graduated from this school. It was the correct decision for me. Small classes which provided one to one learning with wonderful instructors. Priceless experience. In addition, the animals are very well taken care of and the prices are unbeatable. I really recommend this school for learning and grooming. 🐶❤️

After doing much research about dog grooming schools, i decided to come to Pets Playground Dog Grooming School, it is located in pompano and was a bit of a drive for me, but i am glad i made the decision. The classes were very small, usually only 2-3 students in a class. The teachers were next to me the whole time showing me step by step how to groom each dog that i was working on. Jaime is very patient and knows his stuff, he showed me many shortcuts that i know will be useful when my dog grooming salon opens. I am currently working at a shop and in the middle of opening a shop in Jupiter. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who is looking to learn dog grooming.

To find out more about federal financial aid to pay for your pet grooming education at Pets Playground Pet Grooming School check out our financial aid page here for references about federal funding qualifications and enrollment.
There are two ways you can become a dog groomer in Florida:
  1. Complete an official dog grooming program with a comprehensive curriculum to show your dedication and knowledge. This is the recommended option!
  2. Get on the job training from an experienced dog groomer, but those without a certification will have a harder time finding a job.
Our Pro Grooming course takes 4 months to complete attending full-time. Our Stylist Program takes 8 months to complete attending full-time.
Dog grooming courses for tuition range from approximately $5,800 for the Pro Groomer Program to $9,400 for the Pet Stylist Program, grooming tool kit $1,100 (optional) and applicable state taxes. There is a $100 registration fee due at time of signing the enrollment agreement. Interest-Free Financing and Payment Plans available!!!
All students must be at least 18 years of age, and show proof of high school graduation or GED. Prior to enrollment the school requires an interview at the school campus with the director, tour of the facilities, and observing a class in operation. An “Admissions Questionnaire” must be completed. Upon acceptance into the program, the student may enroll.
Dog groomer pay will range depending on the setting and area where you practice. Florida groomers earn an average of $30,000 - $59,000 a year according to Salary.com.
The government has determined colleges and pet groomers both to be an essential business that can remain open.
Dog grooming requires certain physical demands. Ask yourself:
  1. Can you stand for long periods at a time?
  2. Can you lift pets on and off the grooming table?
  3. Can you firmly grasp tools with both hands?
  4. Are you comfortable being exposed to dirt, animal hair, dander, and skin conditions?
  5. If you are pregnant, have you cleared grooming school with your doctor?
  6. If you answered “yes” to the above questions, dog grooming may be the perfect career path for you!
Yes! Job placement is a priority after completing our dog grooming program.
Huge opportunities presently exist in the grooming industry, these are found in grooming shops, Vet’s offices, as well as, the newly popular “Mobile Grooming Units”. We can also show you how to establish your own grooming shop. For students interested in the “show” circuit, our pro-groomer classes will provide you with the foundation for which additional years of hands-on grooming and continued training will lead, to “Master Groomer” status.
