Customer Testimonials

I took my skittish 1 year old dog yesterday to be washed, brushed out, nails clipped, ears cleaned and trimmed! I had a good feeling when I first walked in. Dogs were being groomed and groomers were pleasant and friendly and the pups didn't seems to be minding it at all. I felt ok about leaving him in their hands. Arielle even sent pictures and an update during the day to tell me (and show me!) how great everything was going! I picked up Snoopy 3 hours lady and he looked awesome without taking off too much hair! His spirits were good where he was super stressed after just getting nail cut elsewhere! Customer for life!!I highly recommend!!

We recently took our doodle to the Cleveland Grooming Academy for the first time and were over the moon with the quality and value we received! When we dropped him off we were greeted by a student who asked thoughtful questions and took the time to really listen to what we were looking for. I cannot tell you how much we appreciated that!! This grooming was the first time he actually looked the way we wanted him to!

After his grooming, they took the time to educate us and explain more about his coat and why it gets matted so easily which we so appreciated!! They also recommended a grooming schedule that will help keep him from getting matted in the future.

The discount is definitely an amazing perk but the quality is also sky high! Our little guy walked out so happy and looking the best he ever has with his new favorite bandana :) Thanks a million CGA!

Mya looked great when she was done. She is shy with people she doesn't know so they took that in consideration.

I took my pet Remy to the Cleveland Grooming Academy and had a wonderful experience. The staff at the salon was very friendly when I walked in the door. The facility was very clean and looked very efficient. As my pet was to be used as instruction for the students the instructor, Arielle, made sure to keep a close eye on them and teach them the cut of the breed. Arielle was very helpful when I asked questions about the cut that I wanted for my pet and was sure to confirm the decision with me multiple times. I was highly impressed with the cut that I had received for it was worth far more than I was charged. The students did an amazing job and I will be sure to tell my friends/family about this location. I can't wait to go back!

This place is amazing! My dog is a Australian Shepherd collie mix so he's basically a big hairball! He has layers and layers of fur. They always do a wonderful job and I always get an appointment whenever I need one! And the price, you can't beat it anywhere, as a matter of fact I think they should charge way more than what they do.. but that's just because they do such wonderful work. So I always tip them to let them know how wonderful they did! I cannot recommend this place enough! If you are looking for somewhere that does it all for an amazing price.. a price that you can't beat anywhere! And a place that will take good care of your pet, then look no further you have found your place I promise you will not be disappointed!

Arielle and her students are amazing!!! Bosco gets so excited when I tell him he is going to get groomed! I highly recommend Cleveland Grooming Academy! 🐶💖

Leslie J. Bosco's Mom

We've had such tremendous service that even since moving further away, we still make the trip out whenever our giant and mini schnauzers need groomed. Not only do they do a fantastic job on perfecting the schnauzer cut, but their prices, attitudes, and customer service are excellent. I can tell my pups are comfortable with them and I wouldn't take them anywhere else. I highly recommend them for any of your grooming needs!
