Welcome to mucky pups grooming courses.
We originally opened our doors in 2012 and as we grew our team of pet stylists, we quickly discovered we had a great passion for delivering training and helping beginners become talented pet stylists.
As we have always operated as a busy grooming salon alongside a training school for our staff members our progression into becoming a training school has been a very natural transition. Our students can have confidence in knowing their trainer was once in their position with no experience and are now able to groom to a very high standard thanks to our dog grooming school.
With over a 10 years in an incredibly busy salon and have participated in many training events held at our salon by some of the most respected and talented groomers within the industry from across the world. Our salon follows all the latest global trends and we continuously attend training days to keep us at the forefront of the pet grooming industry.
We are a very versatile, passionate and dedicated school and salon and we will be able to share many different skills with you. Our main passion is Asian Fusion style grooming, creative colouring and working with and educating our clients on coat maintenance so that we can achieve stunning but manageable looks for their dogs.
You can feel confident when booking your training with us that you are in very capable hands with passionate and professional staff that will guide you through your dog grooming journey to become the Pet Stylist you have always dreamed of. We also provide you with business advice from our salon owner Leanne to give you a great head start and some professional direction into the world of business.
Our students will leave our school with the highest standard of technical and professional competence.
