A taster session is suitable if you are considering a career in dog grooming. Practical hands on experience is gained in a busy salon environment. This demonstrates what you can expect. Taster sessions can help you decide whether you would like to complete one of our 25 day courses. Achieving one of these will allow you to become a professional dog groomer. It is designed to provide you with peace of mind, necessary before a big decision. 

The four hour course running time slot can be adjusted to earlier or later in the day for convenience if needed. They are available most days so please feel free to send across a list of suitable dates and we will get you booked in.

What’s involved in our taster session?

In the four hours you are with us, we will complete a short health and safety induction before joining our students in the academy. You will be given a tour of the facilities along with an introduction to the equipment you will be using. Some basic skills will be covered including bathing, drying and brushing out. At the end of the session you are invited to ask any questions you have. We can then help you decide your next options. 

Following the taster session if a student decides that they would like to book either the ‘OCN Level 3 Certificate’ or the ‘Professional Dog Grooming Course’ the £75 payment will be deducted from the relevant course fee.
