I attended the 600 hour program at Paragon in 2014 and was amazed at how much I learned. By the end of my 4 months, I felt confident to work full time grooming all breeds of dogs. The instructors were skilled, knowledgeable and patient; all great qualities when it comes to being a professional dog groomer. The staff members were super friendly and the program was well organized. There was a nice balance of academics with practical application which made for a very comprehensive program. In the grooming industry, which I didn’t realize until I joined the workforce, the Paragon name is well recognized and respected. It helped get me in the door and the skills I learned kept me there. I did a lot of research beforehand, and am so glad I chose Paragon to learn the art of grooming!– Sue Ko
I feel so fortunate to have chosen Paragon as my school for learning how to groom. The expertise of the instructors is far beyond most average grooming schools and salons. I quickly learned there is so much more than just picking up a pair of clippers, and with multiple teachers and staff members, there is always someone around to answer questions and teach different styles and techniques. Not only did I learn to groom, but I made many friends along the way. Being so far from home, the students and staff members became my family for the time I was here. There were a lot of laughs, great stories and comfort in the people I met here. To this day, I still keep in contact with many of the students and staff members who continually help encourage and support me everyday. In taking my first job, my coworkers were astounded at how much I knew; techniques that took them many years to learn. Just months after graduating, I had already started competing in grooming competitions as well. Now, only four years later, I am an owner of my own successful grooming shop which has been up and running for over a year. The confidence I gained from Paragon was far beyond my expectations and I can’t thank them enough for giving me a fabulous start to my career. Needless to say, I would highly recommend them to anyone considering going into the dog grooming business. They opened my eyes not only to a new career, but a new passion!– Pamela Caster
Thank you so much for being a true guide to my dreams of being a professional groomer. I appreciate each one of you at the Paragon School of Pet Grooming.
My dreams are real now and I am happy of doing my dream job here in Turkey. I opened my own grooming salon, called Patikür and I am doing very well.
All of you are so precious for me. Thank you for helping me achieve my dream!– Eser Alas
I want to thank all of you from Paragon for giving me the best possible start for my new career in grooming. Love you all!– Lynne King
I had an awesome time at Paragon! The people and the instructors were so much fun. I did the Fast Track program, really enjoyed it, and learned quite a bit in a very short time.
I enjoyed the Fast Track program so much and now wish that I had taken the Pet Stylist Program. There is so much to learn, and the experience was so enjoyable that I was sad to leave the school.
No matter which program you choose you can learn as much as you are willing to put into it. Thanks to all the friends I made at Paragon and the great staff and instructors!– Rachel Lewis
I had a great experience as a student at The Paragon School of Pet Grooming. The hands-on experience and instructor to student ratio really helped me to learn best. The dogs were lovable and fun. My favorite part was taking a dingy dog and transforming it in such a short time! I got a grooming job before I even graduated due to Paragon’s great reputation!– Liz Sorsen
