About Us & Our Standards
GroomArts Academy is the UK’s leading training school for City & Guilds dog grooming qualifications. As a result, we’re always on the look out for dog models for our students to progress in their training.
We are striving to raise the standards in the industry and all Academy students are tremendously dedicated to learning from our expert groomers to deliver the best results in the industry. Our internationally recognised team provide detailed instruction and close supervision to ensure that your dog receives the best possible treatment and an immaculate groom every time. For your wire and silky-coated dogs, we have a European hand-stripping specialist to keep your dog’s coat looking exactly as it should.
The Academy is bright, fresh modern and contemporary, with lots of natural light. The facilities are kept immaculately clean and are air conditioned to make sure your dog is in a relaxing environment.
Here is a list of the services we can offer:
This includes any of the following depending on the breed and customer requirements
Wash & Blow Dry
This is an essential part of the grooming process and helps to make your dog's coat look amazing and stay healthy
This will create a neat consistent finish for your dog, using only the best equipment
For a sculpted, stylish finish and blending lines to create a beautiful look, our experts will help scissor your dog and can recommend styles if you'd like to hear as well
From the guidance of our world-renowned expert, we can offer hand stripping of your wire or silky coated dog
To keep feet and posture healthy, regular nail clipping is vital. We make sure nails are kept to a healthy length and will advise you on when to have them clipped next to make sure your dog is happy and can move freely
Ear Plucking & Cleaning
If there is too much hair in the inside of a dog's ears, it can trap moisture and possible parasites, which can lead to infection. Having the ears regularly plucked and cleaned really helps prevent this
If your dog is shedding everywhere, whether it's down to a change in season or your dog just seems to enjoy letting you find their hairs, reduce the amount you'll find in the home by having us remove the dead hairs
Anal Gland Expression
Neutered dogs can have issues with compacted anal glands, as they don't mark their territory in the same way anymore. This can be incredibly uncomfortable and lead to infections. Anal gland expression is completed by highly trained professionals and allows your dog to walk around much more freely
If a dog comes in with fleas, we are happy to explain future treatment for your dog and importantly, can use flea shampoo and flea powder to prevent the spread of infection and skin conditions and discomfort for your dog. This is at a cost of £10 In severe cases, we would advise on veterinary treatment.
This is only ever completed by our qualified professionals and helps to remove plaque and tartar from your dog's mouth. This prevents infection and keeps a fresh breath. This is at a cost of £10 and in severe cases, we would advise veterinary treatment.
