Debi Bailer — Certified Groomer
So far, I have hired two graduates from the Alberta School of Dog Grooming and I couldn’t be more thrilled! It was obvious right away that the training was thorough and reflected the most up to date grooming techniques.
Both graduates felt ready to begin their careers immediately after training and my clients continue to be thrilled with the results!
I would recommend this grooming school to anyone seeking excellent training towards a rewarding career working with animals! Well done to Lyn and her team!
Owner of ‘Through the Woof Canine Salon & Barkery
We hired one of your graduates for our salon and absolutely love her! Her attention to detail, customer service skills and dedication to her job have made us extremely proud! The quality of styling and eagerness to continuously learn have exceeded our expectations! I wouldn’t think twice about hiring another stylist from your school!

I had a fantastic time at The Alberta School of Dog Grooming and would highly recommend them to anyone interested in getting in to the dog grooming profession. The friendly instructors are all incredibly talented with years of experience and knowledge just ready to pass on. Not only will you gain the tools necessary to become an excellent groomer but you will learn about the business, being professional and what to it takes to stand out in a positive way. I had a wonderful time and a great experience.
Tracy Fontaine, 2013 graduate
I had the pleasure of enrolling in the school in April. I was at a crossroads in my life wondering where life would take me. Growing children, minimum wage jobs I needed something that could make a good income, have a trade I could take anywhere ( everyone has dogs) and I wanted something for me, as a middle aged woman. So I enrolled in the school and got a student loan through the Alberta government. Lyn spent the first day explaining everything in great etail and the next day we were off and grooming. Deb and Jess are amazing teachers and are still on a constant path of learning themselves, working towards being Master Groomers. Their patience and understanding is wonderful> Ask a lot of questions and they will help you every step of the way. You will learn basic cuts up to breed standard cuts, customer care, first aide, dealing with ‘extra critters’ that like to travel with dogs,, proper dog handling and cat grooming. My life has changed tenfold and I was grooming right out of school and my client list keeps on growing. There is awesome days, hard days (dogs can tax you) and all of them learning days! If you feel this is for you don’t look back and walk forward its woth it. Thank you so much Lyn, Nigel, Deb and Jess I miss you guys.

I throughly enjoyed my time at the grooming course. I found that it gave me all the skills that I needed to become a successful groomer. I really like the one on one experience from the instructors and the input that they give you on how to improve your skills, and speed. To me this course was fun and had a good atmosphere

Michelle M – graduated Nov 2012
My daughter has a passion for animals, and because of this passion Alberta School of Dog Grooming gave her the opportunity to obtain a career as a Professional Pet Stylist> The school has small classes with a very favourable student to teacher ratio. The quality of training she received with the patience and guidance of the instructors are of the highest standard. On completing the course, Michelle has gained self esteem, self confidence and the knowledge to pursue her current grooming career. She absolutly loves dog grooming and without Alberta School of Dog Grooming I don’t think she’d be where she is at with her career today. Thanks to Lyn and all the staff.
