Dog Grooming Training School Wales

The Paws Galore Training School was set up to help anyone who would like to start a career in dog grooming or would just like to groom their own dog.

We offer courses to suit all requirements and the courses are run and taught by Sue who is Level 3 City & Guilds trained and has years of experience to pass on to potential students, and our Salon Manager, Alanna, who also has years of experience and is an Award Winning Groomer.

The courses take place in the Paws Galore salon based in Ewenny Garden Centre. We take a maximum of 4 students per course, so that you get the full attention of the Tutor.

The salon has electric baths, electric and hydraulic tables and various finishing dryers, blasters and clippers. We also provide your scissors for the course.
