SWDGS Courses

If you want to learn to dog groom and get your business started quickly but don’t want the added pressure of exams, written assignments and assessments, then one of our in-house South Warwickshire Dog Grooming Courses would be perfect for you.

Dog grooming classes are limited to a maximum of 6 people so that you know you will always have the best attention and you will learn everything that you need to know.

You can do the courses in blocks or on days to suit you.

Our qualified City & Guilds Assessor takes the lead in the South Warwickshire Dog Grooming Courses. She will give you the confidence to groom dogs on your own and is always available to give on-going support as you embark into your career in dog grooming.
