Lindsay  10/10 Level 3 Introductory and Diploma


Wow just wow

What can I say….. Norfolk is so lucky to have such an amazing training school on its door step, being just a few miles up the road, the Dog House could be considered a competitor for my small dog groomers in Reepham. This couldn’t be any more wrong! Pippa has helped guide not only as a tutor but also as a friend! The Dog House is welcoming and equipped with all the latest equipment and Pippa is always adding to her own and other local groomers knowledge by hosting some amazing seminars and work shops! The course itself was well presented and there is endless amounts of help available through Pippa’s hard work shown in her informative fact and information sheets. The dog grooming industry itself has come under great scrutiny in the past. As an unregulated industry, untrained and un-qualified groomers setting up and causing endless problems for clients and their pets, I absolutely take my hat off to Pippa for learning what she needed to do to be able to train her students to such a high standard and helping them gain a recognised qualification, it’s thanks to Pippa and other legitimate training schools that the dog grooming industry is now positively blooming for all the right reasons!

Bryony  9/10 20 day Foundation course & C&G Level 3 Diploma

I have learned a great deal during the 20 day course provided by The Dog House.

I was able to work on a wide variety of breeds and coat types and groom dogs from start to finish. The techniques I have learned and developed in handling and styling a dog have provided me with a solid foundation to build on during my dog grooming career. The course has also enabled me to build on the knowledge I acquired during my level 2 qualification around grooming legislation, canine health and anatomy and running a dog grooming business.

Fun and friendly learning environment with endless support and advice!

Pippa is fun, friendly, extremely passionate about dogs and has a huge amount of knowledge to share. We were stuck in gaining practical experience from day one. The course was fun and varied and I can confidently say I now feel i have the foundations needed to start my new career. The friendly staff were always on hand to offer advice and support.
Even after completing the course, I know the Dog House is just a phone call or a drop in away for help and advice. Highly recommend! Thankyou Pippa and staff!

Raymond 10/10 20 day Foundation course & C&G Level 3

An amazingly loaded programme with a vast range of theory and practical experience…

So much to learn in so little time but everything gets covered and practiced. Tuition is friendly, informative and professional.  The programme has great variety and is at times extremely full on, however, never dull.
Training in a real working environment was an eye opener, nothing hidden, nothing taken away; so you get a true picture of what work as a dog groomer will be like.  Tough, tiring, testing and tremendous.

Fantastic training course…

Can only recommend recommend recommend The Doghouse, Pippa and her team for such a great training experience. I spent weeks worrying about exams and being watched for grooming assessments etc and instantly on my first day I was put at ease straight away. If anyone is thinking of becoming a groomer or doing their C&G levels I can honestly say this is the place to go.
Thanks Pippa x

Caz 8/10 20 Day Foundation Course

Thoroughly interesting and rewarding course…

This course has changed my life.  Pip and her team have given me the confidence to start up my own business from home, doing something I feel passionate about. Pippa is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of dog grooming and has also been helpful in giving me ongoing advice and support over the past few months whilst I am still learning ‘on the job’.  Thank you very much!
