MODEL DOGS – Huge Discounts given!

Part of Dapper Dogs is also a training school for student groomers to learn and gain AIM (formerly Open College Network West Midlands) qualifications in dog grooming. As such we always need ‘models’ for our students to work with during course times. Please be assured that our students learn under close supervision from qualified tutors AT ALL TIMES.

To thank you for putting your dog/s forward for this, we will charge you an incredibly low price for full grooming and styling – and will ‘tweak’ any little student errors if needed in order to present your dog looking smart and attractive.

Our students start their day promptly at 9.30am so our ‘models’ need to start at that time too. Your dog will be with us for a few hours and sometimes for most of the day, depending on the amount of work attached – and bearing in mind that students work quite slowly whilst learning. We will make sure that your dog has rest breaks and 2- 3 short lead walks for comfort. Our salons and training rooms are air conditioned in summer and comfortably warm in winter. We have individual holding cages which are clean and comfortable and allow your dog to rest or sleep securely. Some dogs don’t like to be caged at all and for those dogs – providing they are sociable and safe to mix with other dogs and the owner is in agreement – we are happy for them to roam around amongst us. Many staff find they have the pleasure of a dog’s company during their breaks! Fresh drinking water is always available for your dog whether he/she is in a holding cage or not.
