Many people when looking for a dog grooming school, look for the closest or the cheapest, but not all grooming schools are equal!. It is currently far to easy to set up as a grooming school, simply having the same level as you want to teach or in some cases not even that, is enabling people to teach others who know no better. Offering qualifications is no longer a guaranteee of quality training. You need to look at how much actual experience all the tutors have, not just the owner. Ensuring the tutors are actively involved with up to date techniques and equipment and are able to teach the skills to others is super important. Whilst a fancy salon is lovely and can be appealing, if you are not being taught all grooming skills needed to run a business or work as a stylist, then you will end up paying for further top up training . The training should be a stand alone section in any salon, students should not just be processing numbers of dogs through. Grooming schools 5 years ago were far more limited in there numbers, potential students , in most cases had to travel to to find a grooming school and all school owners had to have a higher diploma in dog grooming, now they only need the level 3, which can be achieved in only a few months, would you really want to be taught but someone with only a few months or years experience.
take charge of your own future in the industry but choosing an experienced school to train in.
