If you have questions after reviewing the information, please contact me HERE or at 330-239-1471. You can also text me Nancy 440-876-3334

Our students are very successful and a majority of them go on to open a grooming shop after graduation. I am always available to answer questions once you have received your certificate of completion. I will also be there to help you if needed. Students can purchase equipment from Diamond Cut Dog Grooming but there are no exchanges or refunds.

This Program can be completed in 2 weeks. We have incorporated our bathing and brushing into the grooming course. We have not separated our programs. We feel brushing and bathing is part of the grooming. This way you are able to spend more time with hands on and learning the grooming. Students can complete the 80 hour course by scheduling their class on week days or days in which they are able to attend.This may be just a Saturday class or a few days a week, that would be convenient to their job schedule. This would take longer than a two week period if you work a fulltime job. We do have some students that can only attend one day a week because of their work schedule.
