Dog Grooming School opens

On the 18th June, a brand-new dog grooming school opened at the Royal Borough of Greenwich (RBG) Horticulture Skills Centre on Shooters Hill. Hadlow College working with the Pet Industry Federation (PIF) will offer City & Guilds qualifications for dog groomers which are recognised by industry as providing the ideal foundation for those embarking on a career in dog grooming. The school operates as a commercial grooming salon, as well as providing outstanding teaching to dog grooming students, under the watchful eye of qualified dog groomers and teachers.

Situated along Shooters Hill, the Hadlow PIF (Greenwich) Dog Grooming School presents new opportunities for the area and builds on the existing solid links with the local community. The RBG Horticultural Skills Centre in Greenwich is an Olympic-legacy partnership initiative between RBG and Hadlow College. The grooming school offers the best in modern facilities, with generous space in which to care for customers and their dog’s needs. This includes a reception area, outdoor kennels and indoor holding area, a large fully-equipped grooming room accommodating 12 grooming tables, a hydro bath, top of the range blasters and a walk in wet room for bathing large breeds.
