Would you like a career in Dog Grooming...

Our in-house professional dog groomer courses are designed to take students from no skills or experience to being able to groom all of the main salon breeds. The courses are almost entirely practical and highly successful.

Dog grooming is an excellent career option, especially if you are a dog lover. People love their dogs and will care enough to have them groomed even when money is scarce. It is enjoyable work and once you are trained it is relatively low cost and easy to set up in business where ever you decide to live. Our aim is to help all of our students to become successful dog groomers, which is one of the reasons we have an excellent reputation.

Our staff have many years experience and have: Advanced City and Guilds Dog Grooming Diploma qualifications with distinction, iPet Level 3 Dog, Grooming Diploma, OCN Level 3 Dog Grooming Diploma and ICMG (International Certificate of Master Groomers), LCGI (Licentiateship of City and Guilds Institute) Level 4 in Dog Grooming.

Some of our staff compete at the top National and International dog grooming competitions including Mastergroom, Premieregroom and Groomer of the year among others. Some of our past students also complete in these competitions.

We have deliberately kept our prices competitive as we are trying to encourage students that love dogs to help them develop a successful career in dog grooming

I tell all my clients that I trained at Pampered Pets in Greenock and I loved every minute of it!
The staff were all so friendly, helpful, kind , encouraging and taught me everything I know.
I have a room in my house and my clients are growing every day. The more dogs I groom the more confident I am becoming and so many times I’ve had a problem and a piece of advice Pampered Pets provided solves it for me. I could not recommend them highly enough!


 Home address Stirling. Attending one day every 2 weeks. Already has a dog walking business and is now expanding to include dog grooming.

I found pampered pets by browsing grooming schools online. I moved from Cyprus to Scotland to start my training. Best decision! Extremely professional and talented groomers. Made me feel so welcome and comfortable. Never felt any pressure as they were always so helpful and extremely patient and they created a wonderful atmosphere for me to learn in! Highly recommended them for anyone wanting a career change or to improve on their grooming skills.
