About Us

We love dogs ! At The Paw Pad we believe that loving care of dogs is as essential as the finished look of the dog. We offer accredited dog grooming courses for dog lovers who want to become professional groomers. There is a course for everyone, of every level.

All our staff are fully trained, friendly and completely understand that the decision you have taken to change career is one of the biggest you will ever make. We are here to ease you into that transition and are available any time after you graduate for free, on-going support.

A dog grooming business is a lovely career, not to mention lucrative; during the recession, the pet industry survived barely unscathed. You’ll meet friends you’ll keep for life and fall in love with hundreds of dogs.

One of the best feelings comes on the day a dog who has previously been scared of the groomer finally relaxes and lets you clip their nails, dry their head or trim their pads.

It’s gaining that trust that makes it all worthwhile.

What Our Students Have to Say

I went to The Paw Pad to complete my Level 3 Diploma and I can say that they are the most genuine and lovely people. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with them and I learnt everything you could need to be a groomer and own your own business. The support have shown throughout the course is outstanding, I would highly recommend them.

After deciding on a change of career I was looking for somewhere to train and I was so pleased I found The Pawpad. Not only did I learn what I needed to, enabling me to open my own grooming salon, but the people are so lovely, patient and flexible. I completed a Dog Grooming Diploma Course then returned some time later to complete my City & Guilds Level 3. Since training at the Pawpad I have grown my business from me working alone to having 2 mote groomers join and have moved to bigger premises. I recommend anyone who is looking for a training school to go to The Pawpad.
