All other equipment is provided for student use within the salon. Students will however need to bring their own grooming scissors i.e. straights, curved and thinners. Advise given or even purchased on your behalf with discount should you need that support.
Students can take advantage of our ‘pooch model’ discount
Students can bring their own dogs into the salon and groom taking advantage of the equipment and products. Also, when planning to build your own businesses attending with one of your own potential clients is a very good way to begin the process. Not only does it build your confidence and familiarise you with the animal under supervision it also gives you valuable experience of managing your client’s and building your client base.
Please arrange with the centre before confirming with a client so we don’t double book.
