Dog Grooming Courses

 We are pleased to offer our one to one dog grooming courses and classes.

Ranging from one day classes for pet owners to twenty day comprehensive courses for anyone hoping to set up in business .

 

Unlike many grooming courses, you will learn in a working salon environment with one on one tuition.

During your course at Pampered Pooches Spa you will not undergo intense examination.Your work will be continuously assessed and any constructive feedback required will be discussed with you at the time allowing you to correct / perfect  and ask any questions you may have to ensure you are happy and understand  before moving on to the next subject.

We aim to create a relaxed atmosphere and encourage students to ask as many questions as possible. 

You will be given work sheets to complete which allow us to assess your understanding.

 

At the end of each class / course you will be awarded an appropriate certificate.
