Word-of-mouth is one of the best ways to see first-hand what others think of a business. Below are some of the latest things our customers are saying about Tampa Bay Pet Grooming Academy.

"I am busy busy. I am booked about two weeks out, now, and getting about five calls or emails a day for service. I worked pretty much part time last year, taking about six weeks off and still made almost 30k. This year I will double that or more, almost all profit. The best part? I still love it. I look forward to it every day! Coming to you was the best move I ever made! Hope all is well with you and Morgan."

"Me & my husband want to share our success story so future students will know that you can and will succeed after school. We attended school in July 2013, traveling each day from North Port, FL. Shan provided us with a "real" atmosphere and taught us the proper techniques to provide high quality pet grooming. Not only did she give us "skills" but also all the information you need to start your own salon or mobile grooming business. Most importantly, after you graduate Shan is only a phone call away anytime you need advice. We opened our salon on Dec 9th, and YES Shan traveled to attend our grand opening as it would not have been possible without her. To date we have over 350 clients happy clients!

"I went to this school and so did my daughter. We came home and applied for jobs and had to do test grooms. We were both hired that day. Two different salons. You can't go wrong with this school. If you are considering it, you should go for it. The owner, Shan, and the staff are awesome!!"
