After teaching Dog Grooming for a number of years, I have firm and practiced methods of the best way of learning the trade. It is more or less based on 90% practical experience,with a small amount of theory work covered.


At all times there will be a maximum of four students, so very much a highly focused method of

One to One Tuition is given. I am devoted to teaching to the highest of standards that I practice in my own work as a Canine Beautician contributing to the rising success of my own business Canine Barbers Dog Grooming.


We aim to cater for the complete novice groomer up to a more experienced groomer wanting to inprove their skills.​We can also offer bespoke training courses, giving you the opportunity to design your own grooming programme.
