Welcome to Merryfield – Pet Grooming School

We Are The Premier Pet Grooming School in South Florida.

We have a  great environment with outstanding instructors which creates the best foundation for your success.  There is no other pet grooming school in the country today that has a nationally recognized award winning staff like we do. Our goal is to impart their skills upon you.  The legacy of our teachers lives on when they pass their abilities on to their students who love animals and want to be a part of our creative and financially rewarding world!

The graduates of our pet grooming school have many different ways to execute their career choice. Some of those options are:

Mobile Pet Grooming Companies, House call Pet Grooming, Salons, Animal Hospitals, Kennels, Rescue Organizations, Humane Societies, Self Employment.

The pet grooming school program is 600 hours in length and is broken up into 4 main areas of understanding:

  • All breed dog and cat grooming
  • Grooming speed, because you can’t be a wonderfully successful groomer and be a slow-poke
  • Symmetry, proportion and balance. The secret to our student’s success is that we strive to teach the correct styles and variations for all different breeds, creative grooming for the mixed breed pets and the differences in AKC and the NDGAA standards. This, I believe is the secret to our success. It seems that most school don’t get too involved in these concepts and it’s one of the most important aspects of our educational process.
  • Students of our pet grooming school are required to complete a 100 hour externship prior to graduating where they are placed in a grooming salon or in a mobile grooming setting. The main purpose of the externship is to give the students real world experience. Does their skill set meet the expectations of the salon/mobile business’ owner? Do they feel confident with what they have learned and accomplished during their time at school? Typically upon completion of the externship our diploma is awarded.

We assist in job placement, have pet grooming school financing, and will help our graduates go into business for themselves. We are very excited about the Pet Grooming Industry today, it has moved into a new era.

The reason why we have all noticed this change is because people today treat their pets like their children, and rightfully so! They are our “Fur Children” and we care and adore them! When this feeling exists, it spills out into all aspects of care and we are a part of that caring process! What it means to everyone involved in the industry is, we can expect continued growth and a wonderful future.
