The Barker & Bowes Training Academy

If you think you would enjoy a career as a highly trained, professional and certified dog grooming stylist, then read on.

There are almost 1 billion dogs in the world today. It is a market that is growing and will continue to grow.

If you are naturally drawn to dogs, their well-being, health, safety and quality of life, then perhaps becoming a professional dog grooming stylist is a career you are considering. If so, then The Barker & Bowes Training Academy is the right place for you.

If your purpose, imagination and interests are not fulfilled then training, learning, your career and your future will be difficult to enjoy. At The Barker & Bowes Training Academy, we start with one non-negotiable principle, the love of dogs. For us, loving dogs is followed by loving to learn and learning is the gateway into a career you will love.

But real training takes work, dedication, commitment and investment and we are passionate about giving you real, hands-on, actionable and accredited learning with a certification and qualification that will allow you take this much in demand skill anywhere in Ireland or abroad.

If you would like to know more or even have an informal chat with the Academy Director, then drop us a short email and we will get back to you straight away.
