Learn. Teach. Inspire.

Committed to education


Dogs Delight was established in 2004 by mother and daughter team Julie and Patsy. It went on to become a training centre in 2006. It boasts a huge client base, many of whom travel from afar to have their dogs groomed to a high standard. 
Dogs can book in for a professional groom or for one of our very capable student grooms at a discounted rate. Dogs Delight has been nominated 3 years running for Grooming School of the Year at the Liz Paul Awards and in 2016 went on to win the overall award.

We only work with the finest tutors who are leaders in their field, meaning you have access to the best possible learning resources
