An Introduction –
In the 12th Century bastide town of Eymet you will find the Dordogne School of Grooming. An English run grooming school set in the Perigord Pourpre. One of the most beautiful regions of France.
We offer dog grooming courses to suit all standards. Those who wish to learn to groom their own dog, absolute beginners starting out on a new career, and those with some experience who wish to brush up their skills and learn new ones.
Courses are tailor made to make sure that our students achieve their own goals during their time with us.
A slower pace of life in a region where courtesy and respect for ones fellow men are the rule, means that you will have all the time that you need to learn new skills, during your working “holiday”.
Our Credentials –
The School is run by Julia Grant who has over 30 years experience of breeding, showing and grooming dogs. After running a successful grooming and training establishment in the UK Julia moved to France in 2007. Julia has been featured in many a documentary about English people who made the successful move to France, including Radio 4’s Open Country and ITV’s series Little England.. With her love of dogs and teaching you could not be in better hands.
Our Guarantee to You –
We call our training “Real Time”. It is hands on training and your days will be spent working with dogs.
We believe that in order to progress our students should work side by side with an experienced groomer. You will never be taught by a junior or left to fend for yourself.
You will be taught on a one to one basis. We do not teach groups.
You will have a wide range of dogs to groom from the very popular “tea cup” yorkies and poodles to the “giants” of the dog world, newfoundlands, bernese, and all the breeds and cross breeds in between.
You will be supervised at all times, and as you acquire new skills you will have the opportunity to perfect them. We work to a very high standard. Before you leave we expect you to have the confidence to groom a dog from start to finish.
