Dog Grooming COURSES

At Plush Pooches we offer a range of dog grooming training courses that are aimed to suit anyone of any grooming ability. From learning the basics of grooming to learning how to manage your own salon, we cover it all. For our longer courses, we offer options which allow those who may not be able to travel to the salon to complete the course in their own time, in the comfort of their own home. We also offer courses to those who don’t necessarily wish to pursue a career in dog grooming, but rather gain some maintenance knowledge for their own dog or wish to complete a canine first aid training course.

All courses are nationally recognised, regulated by Ofqual and on the UK educational framework.
