The way we teach and train people comes from the same way we teach and train our students in our academy; we take our time to explain things, we make sure that you feel comfortable carrying out tasks yourself and we make sure that you don't just get the technique but also the knowledge surrounding this technique, this animal and the method. This guide goes through all the 5 initial stages of dog grooming from when you first meet a dog in your salon all the way through to clipping and styling their coat. Coupled with our Ultimate Coat guides and our Standard breed cuts you have the perfect knowledge, and skill, to care for any dog that comes into your life.
