Handstripping: Taught which stripping blades you need, and how to strip the coat properly and to finish it in breed specific style.
Price: £40.00 per hour.
Full public and employers liability insured.
Please be aware that many groomers offer training to teach others like yourself to groom. To keep standards high and not to bring the grooming industry into disrepute, questions you should be asking before parting with your money are:
i) What recognised qualifications that groomer has and also to teach
ii) Are they affiliated to a recognised grooming body
iii) Do they have recognised qualifications to teach ALL subjects offered by them such as First Aid
v) How long have they been grooming not showing (this is a completely different area)
vi) What qualification do you get at the end of the course
vii) Do they have full public AND employer liability
Although the qualification may not be City & Guilds, it's advisable to make sure that groomer is because they can offer up-to-date styles, equipment & techniques. The way alot of dogs were done 10 years ago are not how they are done today which will reflect in the dogs you groom after your course and what will distinguish you positively from the rest!
It's your investment...research your training....challenge every question!
