Our primary business ethos is the care and welfare of every dog we are entrusted to groom. In conjunction with this we offer exemplary customer service, a high standard of all aspects of dog grooming and attention to detail.
Dog grooming is not an easy job; it can be both physically and mentally demanding. Throughout the placement you will have the opportunity to shadow our team in all aspects of our daily work. You choose how much you wish to learn from your experience by choosing your own attendance, effort levels and contribution. Once a placement has been agreed you may attend every single working day between 9am and 5pm if you wish, completing your placement 4 months or alternatively you may decide to attend just 1 day a week, it’s up to you.
