About Us

Our Story

Claire established Classic Canine Cuts & The Dog Grooming School, in 2001 in Blackwood, South Wales, UK. Following six years teaching Dog Grooming at two local Further Education Colleges.

At first Claire employed one grooming assistant and since  then the school and the dog grooming business has flourished and we have welcomed thousands of dogs and their owners through the doors and hundreds of students too!

In 2002 the salon won New Business of the Year, the largest of all the categories with over 16 entrants and awarded by Caerphilly Borough County Council.

In order to keep up with the changes in the industry and to ensure that she offered the best range of courses at our school. Claire has ensured that all teachers are qualified to City and Guild Diploma Level 3, being the first school and salon in Wales to achieve this!

In 2018 Classic Canine Cuts was nominated by their customers as a Hero of the High Street, in recognition of their Customer Service and Knowledge of the services they provide.
