For over 14 years Pet's Playground Grooming School has been training students to enter into the grooming field, by providing the best education and training available through individualized curriculums and hand on training that incorporate the latest, most effective concepts in the industry. Our school is accredited by the accrediting commission of career schools and colleges (ACCSC). Our guiding principles are to equip students with superior knowledge and skills within a positive learning environment.
Our classes are conducted in an actual grooming facility, here the students are given the opportunity to work with a wide variety of breeds, experience customer interactions, expectations, and at the same time receive individualized one on one training from our instructors. Rest assured that you are receiving the best training available from an accredited school.
We have an open door policy which allows our graduates to always come back and brush up on techniques. We consider our students family and keep in touch with them long after graduation to assure that they are happy in their career.

We demand the best instructors:

Ellen Artuso is a certified master groomer (NDGAA) with over 20 year’s experience in the grooming field, she has a passion for teaching and is dedicated to the success of her students.
Alba Barajas is a former graduate of Pet's Playground Grooming School, she is fluent in Spanish, and after being groomed for a career in the pet grooming industry at our school, we recognized her patience and dedication and asked if she would like a full time job teaching at our facility.
PPGS works hard on placing our graduates in the grooming industry. While placement is not a guarantee, we work together with many grooming shops in the area as well as networking in other areas in which the student would like to work. Huge opportunities presently exist in the grooming industry, these are found in grooming shops, Vet’s offices, as well as, “Mobile Grooming Units”. We can also show you how to establish your own grooming shop. We are here to help you with whatever your grooming goals may be and strive for each of our graduates to become highly successful members of the grooming industry.

Start your career here at Pet's Playground Grooming School, an accredited grooming school.
