Considering Dog Grooming for your next career?

Dog grooming is an excellent career option, especially if you are a dog lover; in general people love their own dogs and will care enough to have them groomed even when money is scarce. It is an enjoyable job and once trained it is relatively easy to set up in business where ever you decide to live. Our aim is to help all learners to be successful and this is one of the reasons why we have an excellent reputation.

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!

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.
