“To see a client’s face light up when they pick up their dog is priceless and one of the most rewarding feelings you will ever experience as a dog groomer. This is something every student will experience before they finish their course at The Grooming School.”

Your total commitment is your success

Over the years we have learnt that everyone learns differently

After discussion with you, we will assess the way we believe is a path that best suits you to achieve your end goal

Once this is established and with your approval we will commence your training with a clear structure that we mutually agree on, clearly understand and are comfortable with

Our instructors all have many years experience in the industry and can teach all aspects of dog grooming from beginner to advanced including Master Groomer Certification and Assessment and are there for you during and after your course

The Grooming School

WOW this has snuck up fast. Only 2 weeks to go to Melbourne Groom. If your looking for great education or to learn about competing in a non chaotic and relaxed atmosphere then MelbGroom is for you.

If anyone is interested in how the competition system works, we will be running a " hands on " opportunity for anyone interested

The whole process will be experienced from beginning to end. You will physically go through the entire procedure from registration to setting up your comp table WITHOUT having to compete.

This is a great way to get your feet wet and understand the entire process. We will also explain one on one How to get started and plan your dogs and what classes to enter etc
If you have been wondering or wanting to compete but not exactly sure how to go about it then this is for you

Simply attend MelbGroom on the 11th /12th May 2019 at Bulla Exhibition Centre or Sydney Spectacular (Castle Hill Showground ) on 20th / 21st July 2019 and we will run you through the beginning to end of competing (without the myths) and we will explain the many positive and learning aspects that you can gain by competing or attending grooming competitions

You will gain clarity and understand the entire process WITHOUT the stress of competing (we promise) and learn how easy it really is to get started

Feel free to share or ask any questions

Please feel free to share this to any other groups you may be in or let anyone you may be in contact with know that this is available

This is to encourage those who may be sitting on the sidelines interested in competing but not really sure where to start

Please share so we can keep building our wonderful industry

Cheers. L
