Rocco always comes out looking (and smelling) like a new man. Jackie has brilliant experience, especially with grooming poodles it seems and she always listens to exactly what I’d like from his cut. Above that, you get a great quirky pic at the end!

Took my very nervous little Dog to Jackie for the first time yesterday. Ted is 6 didn’t have the best deal in the first year of his life which has reflected on his visits to groomers. Jackie went above and beyond, he looks the best he has looked in years and I picked up one happy little dog.

Used to use pets a home groom room which we thought were ok until we took our beagle to pawsone paws. Jackie does a fantastic job and goes above and beyond. Leo our beagle comes out smelling clean with silky soft fur. She also takes a photo on a themed back drop and includes a free bandanna. Its the small details like this that sets this groomers apart from the rest.

5* clean and friendly, Jackie's facilities are spotless with a lovely secure outdoor area for the dogs to play and sniff in before and after groom! Cockapoos can be tricky to keep on top of at the best of times and our poo was over due her cut by weeks due to covid 😔however it was no problem for Jackie at pawsome paws to fix! 😁

Jackie is a brilliant groomer and I recommend highly. Shes very patient with my dog who is very excitable and boisterous. He has an amazing amount of hair to cut off when he goes and always looks superb. Her facility is immaculate, no hair or dirty dogy smells and the garden they can play in is secure.... Im so pleased i changed from my old groomer as every time benji goes, i feel like im treating him!!

Brilliant service from Jackie, right from the initial contact to collecting our dog Dexter. Couldn’t be happier with how Dexter looks after his pamper. What’s more, Dexter is normally really skittish but he was excited to meet Jackie and she made a fuss of him which was lovely. Looking forward to using Pawsome Paws again 🐾🐾

Amazing groomers. My girl has been to several groomers and not one has even come close to this quality or professionalism. My dog was well looked after and was very happy when I picked her up. Such a quality groom, I cannot reccomend enough

Coralie Kemp

I used Jackie for the first time today and can’t say how delighted I was . I’m moving to the area soon and Jackie did exactly what I had asked for, and my girls were angels apparently.

Sarah Alexander

Jackie is absolutely brilliant - so kind and gentle with the dogs. We took our newly rescued old dog to her, he was physically and mentally weak and shut down, and instantly you could see how much Jackie adores dogs. When we picked him up he was already looking much happier in himself and he's gone on from strength to strength. Can't thank you enough Jackie.

Deb Mejor

Jackie has been grooming my Giant Schnauzer Anya for almost 5 years, she became too large for my previous groomer to handle as she was quite elderly. She always makes a fabulous job of her, and we receive a lot of compliments after she has been groomed. Anya is a pretty dog but Jackie transforms her and she really does look magnificent after she’s finished! The grooming area is spotless and my dog adores her, plus Jackie is professional but also has a wicked sense of humour and it is always a pleasure to see her. I can fully recommend her services.

Karen Perks

Been taking my Bichon named Busby to Jackie since he was a puppy and i couldn't fault her, my dog always look adourable and smells lovely. I wouldn't take him anywhere else because i know i can trust Jackie. Would highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

Karina Hall

Jackie was absolutely amazing, she’s so friendly, knowledgable, caring and clearly a true animal lover. Our rescue golden retriever Chester really needed a wash/cut/full on groom and she did an unfaultable job (if that’s even a word) we will definitely be returning in a couple of months. I’d recommend her to anyone.

Jodie Furby

Jackie has groomed my cockapoo now for the last two years. She is always very lovely to both me and my dog. I am always happy with the cut and style. It’s taken me a few years to find a groomer that I trust.

Marcia Goodhead

Jackie is lovely !! Makes you and puppy feel at ease, she always does a great job the cut is perfect and exactly how asked for, and even has lovely little touches such as bows on their collar or Union Jack bandana. I would highly recommend Jackie, we wouldn’t take our cockapoo anywhere else, he comes away happy and looking great !

Fast Track Qualification (OCN) – Experienced Groomers Only

Fast-track options for experienced groomers seeking qualification.

We know many experienced groomers would like to be able to say they are also qualified and have their skill validated. However, exams can be daunting, and the cost can escalate if you need practice to prepare for them. That is why we offer a fast-track solution to qualification, assessed through coursework and ongoing demonstration providing a great opportunity for experienced groomers to achieve level 3 qualification status without the need for first completing a level 2 qualification. This route is also ideal for students who hold the City and Guilds Intro Certificate but who have not yet reached the City and Guilds Level 3 Diploma. Both diplomas have the same value on the national framework but are simply awarded by different organisations.

There are two fast track options:

Option 1) Complete the qualification at your premises with your own dogs.

£1500 per registration

Option 2) Complete the qualification at Pawsome Paws Training Centre with our dog models.

£1250 per registration

Professional Dog Grooming Level 3 Diploma (OCN)- 25 days

The Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming Qualification Awarded by Open College Network West Midlands is a recognised Level 3 (A level) Qualification approved by Ofqual.

You do not need any prior experience to start this course or to have completed a Level 2 first. Unlike other qualifications of the same stature, there are no pre-requisites to starting the course, meaning you can join at level 3 without having completed a lower-level course first. There is also no final examination at the end which most students find daunting on other courses available.

Over the period of 25 days, you will groom a minimum of 10 different breeds in a minimum of 15 different styles. This exceeds other courses available and we believe gives our students a solid foundation on which to continue developing their skills and career.

The qualification will demonstrate to an employer and/or the general public should you wish to become self employed , that you have the necessary technical skills and knowledge to successfully groom a variety of dogs. This is a formal, regulated, nationally recognised qualification that will remain relevant throughout your career.

It has been designed specifically for those looking to become professional dog groomers or those who already groom dogs (as a hobby or career) but do not currently hold a nationally recognised qualification. For experienced groomers, we can offer a fast-track plan to gaining the qualification by skill demonstration.
