The Centre is a state of the art facility that houses its own exotics room with reptiles and a range of invertebrate, the only one of its kind in Cornwall, and a small mammal room with a range of pet shop animals. Rosewarne is also home to a range of farm livestock.
The salon is bright, roomy, air conditioned, has easy to clean flooring and walls and a viewing window for others to observe lessons. The lecturers are industry experts and qualified in both teaching and dog grooming. The Course Manager is a registered Dog Behaviour Trainer and a dog groomer. The welfare and safety of the dogs are taken into account at all times so both dogs and students feel at ease throughout the process.
