Trainees attending our Complete Career Training Package or 20 Day Dog Grooming Foundation Course will need to buy their own set of specialised dog grooming scissors. Scissors wear and ‘mould’ to the way an individual uses them and are therefore a very personal tool.
If you already own professional scissors you may use them on your course subject to them being of an adequate quality to train with or you may buy our professional trainee scissor starter kit for £185. This kit has been supplied by Kings Lynn dog grooming specialist, Mandy Carr of The Scissor Boutique and is a high quality selection of 4 essential starter scissors, (straights, curves, thinners and small) for you to learn with and start your career with, keep and treasure. Should you wish to add to your scissor collection at any point, Mandy offers 1:1 consultations to help and advise you according to your needs, style and experience.
All other training equipment is provided for use on your course including PPE (Personal Protective Equipment.)
What should i wear ? Comfortable clothing and shoes. (Jeans are fairly ‘dog hair resistant’) Tendring dog grooming Academy will provide protective tops for use during the duration of the course. Please keep jewellery to wedding bands only, small stud earrings & discreetly covered neck chains.
What else might i need ?
A camera or camera phone is invaluable to record your practical progress for your own records. The Dog House will take any photographs required for City & Guilds assessments and provide all training manuals and handbooks.
What products do we use? WE use the best and effective products on the market. 100% natural products are mainly used and we never use any products containing bleach on your dog.
