How’s it going there, Bruce checking in! Everyone has goals in life, but turning a dream into reality takes hard work and the right training. My girlfriend has always loved dogs and basically treats them like people. She’s such a trendsetter and so stylish that a couple of weeks back I told her she should consider working at a salon. When I said that something just clicked in her head, and she shouted out, “what if I learn to groom dogs!” I thought it was an excellent idea, and I told her that it was not an easy profession to learn, but with her hard work ethic and fun personality, I was sure she would be a great fit. So we sat down and started to make a plan. It was obvious that she would need a formal education in order to make sure that she would know the different cuts for all the breeds. So without losing any time, we started looking for dog grooming schools in the Fort Lauderdale area. We wanted to make sure that she went to the best school because she won’t settle for anything less. That’s when we came across the Merryfield School of Pet Grooming.
From the first call when we made an appointment to visit the school, I knew we had found the right one. They have such a friendly and professional staff, which alone has made all the difference. Their facilities are top notch, with several classrooms, and even includes a Motel for pets. The instructors have a magnetic aura around them, whereby the dogs and cats that they work on have no fear when in their midst, its almost as if they can talk to them. All of them have won so many awards and championships and are so involved with animal shelters and veterinary care that I knew we were dealing with world renown experts.
Every day when my girlfriend comes home, she can’t stop talking about all the new things she’s learned or all the fascinating people she’s met. I am so happy that she is having such a great experience. Even though she expected it to be tough work, I don’t think she ever imagined just how in-depth the program would be, and that has helped her relax, knowing that she will be going into the job with tons of experience. With over 35 years since its founding, all the industry certifications and accreditations, a highly qualified team of instructors, and a hugely diverse curriculum, it’s no wonder that Merryfield School of Pet Grooming is simply the best. They might cut hair, but they dont cut corners – I was amazed to find out that the program consists of 600 hours of skill-based training where the perfect your speed, skill, accuracy, and confidence. After you complete this training you move on to a 100 hour externship. The best part is that they have an open door policy for graduates, meaning that if you ever want to learn a new thing or two, brush up on your grooming skills, or simply say hi to your instructors, you are always welcome back. I can definitely tell you this much, if live in Broward County and want to become a pet groomer, the Merryfield School of Pet Grooming is the place for you, I guarantee it!
