Canine Creations Dog Day Spa & Grooming School in Sandyford Village, Dublin, are a an AWARD WINNING training provider delivering some short courses as well as an Ofqual Internationally recognised and regulated Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming. Cathy Bruen ICMG & team offer a very comfortable and friendly environment with state of the art resources for you to learn your new skill in. Training in a commercial salon will give you a very good insight in to the real world of dog grooming – something colleges can not offer. 

The learning you will experience with us is second to none as our tutors are Award Winning qualified professionals with years of industry specific expertise. You will get the benefit of real world knowledge and gain the kind of practical insights that can not be learned from a textbook or from an online course. Please be sure to read our numerous 5 star google reviews

Please be careful of 'cheaper courses' out there. They are not properly regulated, internationally recognised or well respected and more often than not are taught by very inexperienced unqualified persons. As they say, you get what you pay for! 

Throughout the Level 3 Diploma course you will be trained in practical skills such as; Bathing, Blow Drying, Brushing, Nail Trimming, Scissoring, Clipping, Hand Stripping and Various Breed Styling. You will be taught how to groom a variety of different breeds (Cross Breeds and Pure Breeds). On average each student grooms 60 dogs during this course. This is a great amount of practice and from what we hear, its the most amount of practice you receive from any course in Ireland and the UK. The variety of breed you have access to is unrivalled


As well as the fantastic amount of practical training there will be lots of theory explained, discussed and assessed through your assignments. Attend the course Full Time or Part Time - We design an attendance plan based on your requirements!!

''I recently finished my level 3 diploma in dog grooming with Cathy and I cannot recommend her enough! She is the best groomer to learn from with such extensive knowledge and years of experience behind her. Cathy is lovely and goes completely above and beyond in her teaching, I left feeling completely confident that I was capable of taking on a new career in the grooming industry. While completing the course I had a job already lined up and it wouldn't have happened without the support I received throughout the course with Cathy, again I cant recommend her enough and appreciate all she has done for me over the last few months! I would definitely choose Canine Creations if you're looking to break into the grooming world! ❤🐶🐾''
