Teaching the 'Art of Dog Grooming' is our motto and something we are very passionate about

Our Highlight for 2020

The Grooming School’s Les & Christine Speerin have had a lot of highlights in their working careers in the Dog Grooming Industry over the past 20 something years.

To be involved in a prime time television shows such as Pooch Perfect is a dream come true and Les and Christine couldn’t be more excited to be consultants for the show.

This show is the first of it’s kind to be done in Australia and to be allowed the opportunity to work one on one with producers and the whole 7 networks Pooch Perfect team including International superstar Rebel Wilson is something we are very grateful for and an experience that will remain with us for a very long time.

Hi Groomers and Pet Friends

TGS was delighted to see our leading instructor, Christine Speerin from The Grooming School as a guest judge on Pooch Perfect tonight! Christine loved being a part of the show and for being recognised as one of Australia’s leading pet stylists in the country! It was indeed an honour and a privilege for her to be involved in Pooch Perfect alongside Australian pet stylists, expert judges and meeting and working with the wonderful program host Rebel Wilson.
