Our History

Arielle Scavnicky (Left), Lauren Akuszewski (Right)

The Cleveland Grooming Academy was established in 2015 by  Arielle Scavnicky, who is the owner and instructor of all available courses. Arielle has more than 13 years of experience from working in corporate, private, and veterinarian based salons. She is an active member of the National Dog Groomers Association of America, and is President of the Ohio Professional Pet Groomers Association.

Lauren Akuszewski is a previous graduate of the Cleveland Grooming Academy who came to the school with two years of bathing experience. Because of her passion for the industry and amazing natural talent, Lauren was offered the position of Teacher's Assistant after her graduation. 


Both Arielle and Lauren are dog and cat CPR certified through PetTech, and share the common goal of providing high quality grooming lessons while putting the health and safety of each pet first. The Complete Basic Grooming Course taught by Arielle and Lauren is the longest grooming course available in all of Northern Ohio. 

10 Reasons to choose the Cleveland Grooming Academy

APPOINTMENT ONLY

By taking all services by appointments only, we ensure that your pet will get one-on-one care from start to finish by our students.

1

VENTILATED WASH AREA

Our facility is equipped with a high grade ventilation system to keep pets cool and comfortable. 

3

ALL CAGES STERALIZED BETWEEN PETS

Each cage is thoroughly cleaned between each pet brought to our facility.

5

COMFORT AND SAFETY

We will take extra time with any pet to make every grooming experience a pleasant one. Pets are never left unattended unless they are in a secure kennel. All students are under the constant supervision of both instructors.

7

NO CONTACT BETWEEN UNFAMILAR PETS

All pets are kept separate from one another, and never have nose-to-nose contact. The only exception are pets from the same family.

100% SALON GRADE PRODUCTS

We use only the highest quality shampoos, conditioners, and products on all serviced pets. Our shampoos are enriched with natural oils and aromatics to help maintain skin PH, and keep all coats silky smooth!

DRY YOUR PETS WITH CARE

All pets are 100% hand dried with each groom and bath. We also have non-heated cage dryers for pets who need an extra slow air flow to keep calm.

HIGH QUALITY TOOLS

Our students are provided with top of the line equipment and products such as Andis, Shernbao, Geib, and Artero.

CLEAN AND NEAT LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

Our school is cleaned between each pet, and thoroughly at the end of each night. This ensures each student learns proper salon etiquette.

HIGH QUALITY OF SERVICE

Our students learn how to properly execute haircuts ranging from shave downs to full hand scissors. Even though they are learning, our students provide high quality haircuts similar to ones available in competing salons.
