About the academy...

Academy 1

A career in dog grooming can often be seen as a fairy-tale job.

And although most groomers adore their jobs overall, it must be said that life as a groomer can be entirely exhausting and takes a certain type of person to embrace the career as a whole - one who is passionate to aid canine welfare and be open to develop their profession with a sense of humour and embrace the difficult days as well as the good.

Dog grooming is a physically demanding role, where you will be a hot, hairy, smelly mess most of the time and find yourself tenderly conversing with canines for the majority of your working day (... like that's even an issue, I did that before becoming a groomer!).

At times, dog grooming can be emotionally challenging. For their grooms, most well-adjusted doggies are saints, others require YOU to have the patience of a saint!

But all that said, the rewards and fuzzy feeling in your heart will override the negative and you will be proud to be a dog groomer.

Most students have a similar ambition post qualification - to enjoy a career they have a passion for.

For some, this may be employed within an already established grooming salon, or renting a table, for others, it is the pull of building their own empires, working for their own values, their own visions and their own perks.

Whatever your ambition, GoldWalk Grooming Training Academy can help you get there.
