Dog Grooming Tuition

Look North offers tuition for everyone, from those with no experience at all who want to start a professional grooming business, to the established groomer wanting to improve on style, shape and technique. We also offer tuition for the pet owner wanting to learn to trim their own dog.

Specialising in style and scissor techniques, our grooming tuition covers a range of breeds to give a true reflection of a groomers work. As well as the set courses we offer, tuition can be tailored to suit your individual needs.

With a maximum of 4 students per tutor we offer the highest standard of training with 2 top award winning professional groomers.


Is there an age restriction or previous experience requirement?

There is no upper age limit for our training courses although a minimum age of 16 is required to complete a City & Guilds qualification. No previous experience is required for the 12, 20 or 40 day courses.


Training hours

To give you experience in a professional environment, the practical tuition takes place in the training room within our working salon, Tuesday to Friday 9:30am to 4pm. The 25 and 40 day courses also require the equivalent of one day per week home study which must be recorded to show the required number of learning hours for the qualification.
