General information:

The Groomer Academy is a non-profit organisation with the experience of 40 years teaching groomers.

One of our teachers and member of the German Groomer Association (BG e. V.) is the very well known World Champion Jacqueline van Tilburg-Leinders (Netherlands)

The difference to other "schools" in Germany is the way we teach grooming. We have a real school with desks and the dogs we need are our models. The dog owners are offering their dogs for the training of our students and in turn they mustn´t pay anything for our work.

We believe that  anyone can become an expert in his of her field, through intensive training and personal coaching. Our instructors and assistants are experienced and they want to pass on their passion and knowledge.

All courses are led by experts in their field who continuously improve and execute their own knowledge in their daily activities as a judge, breeder, dog handler and last but not least as a groomer. They are specialists in grooming of specific breeds and also consultants who aim to share their professional knowledge and experience with you. Our teachers invest continuously in their own professional development to make sure they always adopt the most recent techniques.
Your time is valuable, especially if you are self-employed. For this reason we offer daytime courses, evening classes and also ‘personal  coaching’ (one or multiple sessions at a moment that suits you best).

We will start working with theoretical explanations as less as necessary and maximized practical work.  At the end of your personal  courses you will be able to start your new profession immediately.


Raising your talent is our aim and passion!
