Have you ever wanted to learn to groom your own dog? Dog Diversity offers 3 hour one-on-one classes to teach you exactly that! Simply bring your pooch in, freshly washed and dried, and one of our trainers will guide you through the steps to creating that salon look at home. We have all the equipment here for you to use, and can guide you expertly should you wish to purchase your own - we'll even give you a student discount for tools on the day! Additionally, you will take home one of our DIY DVDs for further learning or a memory jog. All this for only $225! Want to share the experience and bring a friend? We can teach both of you on your own dogs at the same time for $375. 

JUST A NOTE ABOUT PUPPIES - We recommend at least 3 grooms with your groomer before you try to learn to groom your OWN puppy. You will find it very hard to learn on a wriggly little body! Get your pup used to being groomed and THEN book a class. Trust us - it will be so much better for you both. You can help your pup along with getting comfortable by using a hair dryer on him, gently and only a warm setting. Make sure you play with her paws and get them used to being touched. If you have an electric toothbrush, this does a good job of mimicking a clipper sound - buzz it gently near him, on his coat. Remember to use positive reinforcement, and reward reward reward good behaviour with treats! ♥

"I had an absolutely fabulous time at Dog Diversity learning to groom my two cavoodles. It was an invaluable lesson and the trainer was very professional and knowledgeable, and showed my how to groom my dogs safely. I feel confident now to give it a go. My two boys also enjoyed the experience. Thank you!"

`It was lovely to meet you and all of the wonderful staff today.  I had a great experience and everyone was so friendly and helpful – it was just brilliant.  Everyone was so nice and encouraging and I felt like I was in excellent hands even though I was a little nervous.  If you could please pass on my thanks especially to Nat and Tam for being so patient and my gratitude for their excellent tuition I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again to all of you.  Oh – and my husband and son were very impressed!``

"Dear Natalie and all at Dog Diversity. Thank you for making a truly daunting experience an enjoyable one! We really want to groom our own dogs and your calm, friendly and experienced manner was a real blessing and helped us overcome a huge hurdle. We will still need a huge amount of practice but feel confident enough to start our journey now. This would never have happened without you and we are so truly grateful. Our best wishes to you all."
