The Training Centre by Ilse, owned by Ilse Frenk-Kleton, is located in Amerongen. After running a grooming salon for 31 years and receiving many dog grooming prizes it is now time to pass her knowledge and techniques to other groomers.

The modern space of the Training Centre is founded in the spring of 2015. It is specially build and has six electric grooming tables, a seperate bathing room with adjustable bath and different types of grooming equipment like i.e. a Hydrobath and Clipper Vac. A nice coffee- and lunchtable is ready for our guests. There is a shop with grooming equipment, shampoo etc of the Jean Peau company. A part of the centre is prepared for our photographer of Herodogs. Because we have enough space we are able to give showtraining. The centre is easily prepared for for lectures or other dog relaterd activities.

If you want to join one of the below activities, or organise something yourself in our centre, please contact us for further arrangements. Tel. 0031-343-460346

A workshop is, most of the times, custom made. It takes a day and is for maximum six persons, including coffee/thea and a lunch. The groomers will work, with a skilled supervisor, on a dog to learn the techniques to bring their work for one or more parts of their grooming exam to a higher level.
Certified groomers who want to learn more about a special breed, special technique or just want to work better are also welcome in a workshop.

Groomers who want to participate at a grooming competion can learn the tips, tricks and techniques to get a good result at the show.
