There are many reasons why students prefer becoming licensed GROOMERS at PETS PLAYGROUND Grooming School.

Why Us ?

For over 16 years Pets Playground has been training students to enter into the grooming field, by providing the best education and training available through individualized curriculums and hands on training that incorporate the latest, most effective concepts in the industry.  Pets Playground is licensed by the C.I.E. Fl License #2359. PETS PLAYGROUND IS AN ACCREDITED INSTITUTION BY THE ACCREDITING COMMISSION OF CAREER SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES (ACCSC)

Our guiding principles are to equip students with the 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. Pet’s Playground has a philosophy that students come first, and as students we mean our “family”  The reason Pet’s Playground exists is because of our students.  We want to see our students succeed in this industry and work hard to place our students in grooming shops as well as consulting them on how to start their own grooming shop.  Our graduates are prepared and trained to enter the grooming industry, and we always welcome them back for refresher courses free of charge.

Pets Playground offers small class sizes, highly personalized teaching, flexible scheduling for working students, and hands on training.  We are dedicated to improving the quality of pet grooming services available in the community.  We want to see you succeed in this industry.
