We are an independent accredited College with an excellent track record in retaining students and helping them achieve their personal goals and aspirations.
Whether you are looking to change careers, retrain or want to gain additional continuing professional development in dog related topics, we can help.
We are not a sprawling centre but a small dedicated College with a big reputation in excellence and animal welfare that specialises in 1-2-1, small group teaching or larger seminars for the general public. We support individuals especially those that haven't studied for years, clubs, dog owners and other professionals including vet nurse training and veterinary surgeon training in canine behaviour.
Students that join us can expect to work hard, but will achieve a greater understanding and develop far more practical skills than if they attended most other Colleges.
So if you are interested in training to become a dog groomer, animal trainer or canine behaviourist then we can help.
Please email your interest for grooming courses to [email protected] or call 01323 890041
or for interest in any other behaviour related, or small business start up information then please email [email protected] or call 01323 890041.
No obligation, we are happy to help. See below and introduction to our accredited and College Certificate courses.
