Keri Powell

They are fab!! Canine cuts is the only place Canelo can be groomed after a bad experience. They are great with him and have always comforted me that my fur baby will be well looked after, he comes out clean and beautifully cut! Thank you

Stephanie Le Vesconte

I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Wales and the training was excellent, definitely the best money I have ever spent.

Maria Meader Evans

Taken Cody my little Yorkie a few times now, lovely staff really friendly and helpful. Cody always looks lovely when he’s been in for a cut.

Andrea Powell

Fraggle has been going to Claire and her team for a couple of years and totally loves it. Very professional and you can feel the love they have for the dogs as soon as they enter the room, not just a money making business they actually care about the animals and has their best interest at heart. Claire has a heart of gold and goes out of her way to help less fortunate dogs, best groomer around by far.

Lynne Price

Highly recommend you bring your furry baby here. The staff clearly have a passion and love for animals.

Laura Bidmead

Brilliant, Claire is amazing. She can handle my grumpy old man, and take no nonsense from him which is what i like to hear as that is what he needs. And she is brilliant with my other dog who just don’t care anyway!!

Thank you.

I recently completed 6 weeks training here with the wonderful Claire and her just as wonderful staff. The course was everything I expected and more, would fully recommend it. Thank you so much for helping me achieve my dream vocation, as I do believe you do really want to do this to get as much out of it as I did.

I was nervous taking my pup Dexter for his first grooming session but I needn’t have worried. When I went to collect Dexter he looked absolutely amazing. All the ladies I spoke to were lovely and very welcoming. I would definitely recommend classic canine cuts to everybody and I won’t be taking Dexter anywhere else.

Claire Guidotti

Brilliant place to take your dogs for a groom. They are so attentive and caring with my dogs, they actually look forward to going there. Claire and her staff are fantastic, the cuts are always spot on, its excellent value for money. awesome place and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Julie Hill

Claire and her team do a fantastic job! They are very caring with the dogs and make sure that they are happy as well as beautiful when they leave. Claire has groomed many of Four Paws rescue dogs, some of whom come in with horribly matted, unkempt coats. She always does a wonderful job of making them look their best.

Stella Dunstone

Very professional and caring to both dogs and owners. The most perfect cut for each individual dog. I would never trust anyone else with my beloved pooch. The brilliant and caring staff do a fantastic job- would recommend to everyone.

Lindsey Peds

We have used classic canines for over 16 plus years.
Highly recommend we wouldn’t trust our dogs with anyone else for a perfect groom.

We only have to mention “claire” to our dogs and they run to the car with excitement!
Happy dogs = happy customers

I’ve been taking my two Bedlington Terriers to Classic Canine Cuts for about 6 years now, since they were puppies. It seems that finding someone who can do a good Bedlington cut is quite difficult, yet CCC do a stunning job every time. Over the years I’ve come to know the people there and they are all lovely. They are obviously dog lovers, they treat the dogs so well, as if they were their own. … I often joke that if I had hair I would book myself in for one of their spa days!

Ian Cooper

I recently did a professional dog grooming course with Claire and her team and cannot praise them enough, both in their training methods and in their obvious passion for what they do. I would recommend anyone interested in grooming as a career to speak to Claire. The fact that they have so many awards speaks for itself.

Tracey Bradley

The most productive, informative and fun-filled six weeks I’ve ever spent. Thanks to Claire and her team I now have my own business and it’s great to know you have the support on the end of the phone whenever I need it.

The training school has a friendly atmosphere and I was able to gain hands-on experience from day one. The whole team at Classic Canine Cuts are great. I would highly recommend the training school. Thanks to everyone for all your support and for giving me a great experience.

So glad I did the course, I feel I can now look forward to a career path. I feel privileged to be doing this kind of work … I now feel somebody, not just a mum.

Carrie Hinchley

Having been made redundant from my employer of 20 years, I sat and had a think about what I would really like to do. I have always loved the idea of working with dogs in some way and decided to check out where I might train to be a dog groomer. I visited Classic Canine Cuts in Blackwood and immediately took to Claire the owner, chief trainer and head dog groomer. Three months later I found myself on day one of the course, quaking in my boots at the prospect of being let loose with a set of clippers and a pair of scissors on some unsuspecting Yorkie. I need not have worried. The easing into the job was gradual enough to allow for the steady build-up of confidence whilst at the same time, I now realise, stretching sufficiently to cover all aspects of the work and access to a widely varied array of breeds and dog characteristics in 6 unforgettable weeks.

Claire and her team are superb and I cannot thank them enough. In a little over a year, I have built up a clientele of over 400 dogs coming from over 70 breeds – Pugs to Powder Puffs, Dalmations to Dachunds and Westies to Wolfhounds!

If your thinking of a career change I can thoroughly recommend this and if you’re looking for great training facilities and comfortable live in accommodation then you must visit Claire in Blackwood and take a look around.

As a footnote I would have to add that whilst I expected to go away, work hard and learn a new skill I had no idea I would have such a laugh doing it and make friends I am sure I will keep forever. My fellow trainees were a great bunch of people and are all enjoying their new careers.

I chose Classic Canine Cuts Dog Grooming School to do my training after intensive research on the internet.

As I live in Scotland it was a big decision to go to Wales for six weeks.

After completing the course I am absolutely sure it was the right decision.

Claire, Sheri and Linda helped me change my life for the better. After seventeen years working in a casino, it was a massive career change. Grooming was my dream job but I needed an income so I had to be ready to go it alone as soon as my training was finished.

I now work for myself, with a mobile grooming van. I love it. Its all down to the professional training I was given, not only with the actual grooming but also gaining knowledge about the running of a business and of grooming equipment.

I utilized the self-catering accommodation that Claire offers for the six-week course and found it fulfilled all my needs.

I undertook the six week training course with Claire and her fabulous team in November 2017. 

The course is designed for you to succeed and if you need any additional support or guidance the team will do their utmost to help you. Students are small in number at any given time which means more one to one time which is fantastic. 

What I learned during my time at Claire’s has made me the groomer that I am today – busy but best of all with a happy customer base.

Huge thank you to Claire, Caryl, Amy and Sheri.
