Enrolling at Pets Playground Grooming School was by far the wisest choice I’ve ever made. I can’t rave about my experience enough but I’ll try. Mr. Woody, the owner of the school, provided a walk through and introduction that was very welcoming, responsive, and loaded with information. Enrollment was a painless, flexible, and affordable process. The instructors are top notch educators. My head instructor was Lindsee and man is she sent from the encyclopedia/ AKC or heaven itself! As an educator she was always ready and willing to share her knowledge. Jana and Robyn were also helpful and encouraging through my time spent attending Pets Playground. The school puts an emphasis on hands-on learning. You will not be idle all day reading about how to do things. You will be getting hands-on experience with assistance and guidance. They have plenty of additional teaching assistance as well that make for an engaging learning environment. They truly go above and beyond with every detail; whether it’s the simplest of tasks like cutting bandanas and/or making bows, or the fun color dying process in creative grooming. You will learn how to clean and maintain your equipment. You will learn shop safety, sanitation, handling, first aid, anatomy, skin issues, ear care, breed recognition, client relations-and act out scenarios, fleas and ticks, grooming all different coat types, animal behavior, tips and tricks, continued education. When it came time to graduate, I felt confident in the skills I had obtained and was excited to get to work. The supportive staff, encouraging environment, curriculum, and hands on experience will leave you with no fear of obtaining a successful career.

Allowed me to enter the grooming industry! Before going to school I was working as a bather, but never had time to learn to groom while on the job. The groomers and my boss were just too busy. Going to school allows you to practice on dogs and get your grooming portfolio started, so you can apply to jobs as a certified groomer. They also give you the background knowledge of breeds, skin issues, etc to confidently talk to clients. I’m now working as a groomer 1+ year out of school and would definitely recommend it if you want the fast track to this career. Pets Playground is also super flexible with scheduling and working with you. I’m glad I made the investment!

We have been using Pets Playground for a few years and they are the best of the best. We have a 17 year old rescue named Buddy and he looks like pretty rough sometimes when we take him in. Needless to say he has more than a few problems but they really take care of him and he comes out looking like the prince that he is and feeling so chipper. We are so thankful to have Pets Playground and honestly we have no idea what we would do without them. Wonderful staff, beautiful and always clean facility. Always so helpful and so considerate. To us it seems you cannot go wrong. 🐶

Came back with my new dog and they did great! Use to bring my old dog there that since passed away. They took my shih tzu and did exactly what I wanted. I’m very happy and my dog wasn’t stressed or had any anxiety like he usually does once I picked him up like with other groomers. I’m extremely pleased and satisfied and will definitely be back

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

21:36 23 Jul 21
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!
22:01 22 Jul 21
We highly recommend Pets Playground Pet Grooming! They are very professional, prompt, affordable and take extremely good care of our dogs. They even took adorable pictures of our dogs after they were groomed!!!
