  • Hello from Tampa, Fl

    Hi All,
    I am new to this board, and find it very informative. I am originally from St. Croix, VI and I am now living in Tampa. I am a military wife and mother of 2. I have grown up in the pet business as a little girl until I went to college in 1990. My parents had a guard dog business, my dad bred all kind of dogs, my mom bred persians and siamese and I bred Hamsters. We also had a pet store. So needlesto say, I am not new to animals..oh also had ferrets. Anyway, I am trying to go to grooming school, but with my husband being gone alot and his work schedule it seems almost impossible. But we are trying to make it work. The school I really want to go to is 2 hrs away from where we live, but hopefully in the summer I will be able to go for a jam packed course so that I can get it done in a shorter amount of time. All of you are awesome and already I have learned alot of things here. Take care Giselle

    Hi Giselle! I also live in Tampa and own a shop here. I went to grooming school in S. Tampa...Bay Area Pet Grooming Academy for a full time 9-week program. If you want to talk more about schooling options send me a private message and I can give any information I have.

    Welcome to the board!

            What school were you interested in? If its Florida Institute of Animal Arts, I definitely reccomend it. There was a guy who made the drive from tampa while I was attending so it is possible if you are okay with driving. Just ask if you have any questions about the school, I took the 900 hour professional pet styling course.

                Hey all you Tampa & FL. Groomers! LOL
                FYI, my family(& myself ofcourse) will be vacationing in Tampa mid Feb.
                I have family there & also in Tamarac.
                Can't wait to go & enjoy the warm weather!
                We are looking to relocate b/c I can't (physically)take winter/cold anymore! YUCK!

                Later,
                Gab. ;-)
