This course is for the owner who wishes to learn to groom their own breed of dog or quite simply those who would like to learn to groom a specific breed.

The course is designed to enable dog owners who wish to learn how to groom their own dogs in the specialised manner necessary to the breed standards requirements, however  if you  have a working knowledge of this and feel the need to invest in improvement of your grooming technique it is also for you. 

This  course consists of 5 days (tailored) to include tuition in practical training.  

We are able to specialise much of the content of this course towards the grooming requirements for a particular breed of dog, if required. 

Should a student have their own dog(s) which they wish to have first hand experience of handling whilst undertaking this type of grooming, then we will be pleased to arrange for you to bring them along.  

Students should be in possession of their own grooming equipment  (including grooming clippers) and we are happy for you to bring this along, however, we are able to provide our learners with all the kit they will need to enable them to become fully functioning and professional at a very low cost. We will advise all students on the  equipment that they will need to bring with them. If you need to purchase any equipment, before or after your course, we will be happy to provide supplier details should you need it  (some of whom we have preferential terms agreed with for our students). 

This course is structured to give you an ability to carry out styling of your own dog, If you require something specialist,  such as  hand stripping, if you have a particular wish to be taught on a specific breed  please let us know at the earliest possible time and we will endeavour  to include it. 

Former students from any of our dog grooming courses always have  the facility to use us as a help and advisory service throughout the  rest of their grooming career.
