Dog stylists get a taste of clipping
Budding dog groomers from Duchy College Rosewarne have been getting to grips with the art of clipping in a short course aimed at honing their skills this week.
The students, who have all completed their level 2 certificate, are undertaking a five week clipping course in preparation for starting the next level qualification.
Lisa Turner, from Mylor, said: “I haven’t done any clipping before so I’m learning lots. I really enjoy the courses at Rosewarne; I work with some nice people and enjoy learning – and there is a lot to learn – you have to understand that different breeds have different coats and different styles are needed for each one.
“I want to make a career out of this which is why I’m progressing on to the next level and this clipping course is a great introduction in to what we’ll be practising next as well as a good opportunity to keep skills fresh.”
The students have been learning about basic clipping and trimming techniques in the College’s state-of-the-art dog grooming parlour.
The College is always looking for more canine customers, any breed, shape or size. Anyone interested in putting their dog forward should call 01209 722100 – please note there is a charge for each dog depending on size.
Andrew Counsell, Head of Duchy College, said: “Our dog grooming courses are proving increasingly popular; they are taught in a professionally run salon with expert staff who have real industry experience.”
