“One of the best professional decisions I’ve made in recent years. 

MPS School of Artistry Case Study

Jarrett B.

Jarrett’s aspiration to become a professional pet groomer found its path at Modern Pet Salon’s esteemed Dog Grooming School. Located in the heart of South Charlotte, the school offered Jarrett more than just an education—it provided a gateway to a fulfilling career.

From his first day, Jarrett was immersed in an intensive, hands-on learning experience under the tutelage of seasoned grooming professionals. He relished the opportunity to work directly with a diverse range of breeds, mastering the art of both standard and mixed breed clips. The comprehensive training program also equipped him with a professional 20-piece grooming toolkit, which became an integral part of his daily practice.

However, the highlight for Jarrett was the chance to work in one of Modern Pet Salon’s two bustling salons in South Charlotte. This real-world experience not only solidified his grooming techniques but also allowed him to understand the nuances of running a successful salon. The opportunity to transition seamlessly from student to practitioner in such a vibrant setting was something Jarrett found particularly advantageous.

But beyond the technical skills and the professional opportunities, what truly made Jarrett’s experience at Modern Pet Salon’s Grooming School rewarding was the environment. He fondly described the atmosphere as a big family—a sentiment that resonates with many who walk through MPS’s doors. Colleagues became mentors and friends, creating a supportive network that encouraged learning and growth. Jarrett felt valued, not just as a student but as a member of the team, with everyone eager to help and contribute to one another’s success.

Today, Jarrett is not only a testament to the school’s ability to nurture skilled groomers but also a reflection of its warm, familial culture. His story is one of many that highlights Modern Pet Salon’s commitment to excellence, not just in grooming, but in fostering a community where everyone—staff, students, and pets alike—is treated with kindness and respect.
