Student Testimonials

“After being freshly graduated from high school and moving out at 18, I can say I’m extremely grateful for finding the Academy. The first time I stepped foot in the salon I was really surprised at how friendly everybody was and also the energy of the environment. After I learned the Academy was about 16 weeks long, my hopes of going to college was not my aspiration because I really wanted to give it a try to groom dogs! After a few weeks into the Academy I was struggling a little to get my confidence up and also I just wasn’t sure if I was on the right path of my learning, but my Instructors were there the whole time to listen to my questions and concerns because they believed in me. Thanks to them and my stubbornness I can say that I have finally found something that really excites me! I love being a Professional Pet Stylist and I will forever be grateful with Jamie and the Team.”
