Colege Cambria has opened a new a dog grooming salon and training academy.
The Collar and Comb Dog Grooming Academy at the college’s Llysfasi site will be formally unveiled with a seminar on January 27 hosted by Julie Harris, co-founder of The Groomer’s Spotlight website, on, ‘Canine Anatomy, Coat and Skin’.
Wendy Murray, a dog grooming lecturer at Cambria, said the decision to transform the previous dog grooming space into a working salon provided learners with valuable experience.
“The salon and training academy will give our students the best of both worlds,” she said.
“There will be classroom theory and time spent in the salon will enable understanding of practical real-life situations that will develop the skills and knowledge essential for working as a professional dog groomer.”
Collar and Comb is already attracting customers and is well-equipped with the latest technology, providing a first-class service in a warm, welcoming environment.
The seminar will discuss dog handling and explore how dog groomers can best build a harmonious relationship with the animals.
