Our Mission

To provide Accredited Professional and Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) structured professional dog grooming courses in a positive, supportive and relaxed training environment.

Experience that counts

With more than 40 years of combined training and grooming experience, Dog Diversity prides itself on providing a professional, happy and calm environment for both student and animal.

We offer a very structured and systematic form of teaching which is tailored toward each individual student’s learning abilities. The courses are structured around Australian Quality Training Framework and Registered Training Organisation Training Packages. This ensures students that all elements covered in the course adhere to a professional training standard.

Our Promise

Our professional and qualified dog grooming instructors strive to provide a positive and vibrant learning environment. All of our courses are limited to two students to one trainer to ensure that our undivided attention is on the student and their progress. This also ensures the safety and happiness of the dog.

Students are taught positive handling and grooming techniques which ensure the dog is groomed professionally, safely and efficiently. These techniques enable the dog to feel more comfortable, and guarantees that the dog is not on the table for long periods of time. Our commitment to training and results means the dog will go home with a stunning new look, students will leave with a feeling that they have achieved a beautiful, professional clip in a stress free, positive training environment.
