Dog Grooming Courses

Dog Grooming Courses

The Pet Studio run a tailored programme of dog grooming courses from our North Somerset studio. Just outside Bristol.

After reading through all of the different companies offering training courses, we came to realise that we needed to keep things SIMPLE and to the point.

We would like each prospective student to attend a free conultation so you can see what we are able offer you. This is also our chance to see what experience you have and go through what you are hoping to achieve.  We will then build the course around you and your requirements. Please phone Liza to discuss!

Our courses are made to suit and will vary in length; from a 1 day course specialising in one breed style.  This is mainly aimed at owners looking to groom their own dog.  Or, all the way through to a newcomer with no experience wanting to leave with the relevant practical skills at the end and ready to start their own business.

Things to bear in mind when choosing a training school:


  • Is the school registered with an industry body?
  • Are you able to gain industry recognised qualifications?
  • Is the course structured to your needs?
  • What is the working environment like?
  • Are the teachers constantly keeping up to date on styles and training?

We provide the following options for training but if there is anything else you would require then please contact us directly.
