We love to meet students dogs and are happy for them to come along to be used as a dog model.  However, we have found that they can sometimes prove a distraction and would recommend them not attending on days they are not being groomed.

Due to COVID, we took the decision to not share equipment where possible and encouraged students to buy their own starter kit which they can take home. 

This has been very successful and anyone who books one of our qualification courses can buy a discounted kit which includes scissors, brushes, combs, comb attachments, trimmex, chalk, Roses microfibre towel, nail clippers. and blades. 

The pack retails at over £500 but is available to our students for just £400. We ask that you bring your own scissors, clippers and blades in daily to use during your course.
