Mia is a multi-award-winning dog groomer and has 6+ years of experience in offering North Devon top-notch dog grooming services. She prides herself on her high standards and quality of work. When the business rapidly grew, Mia took on staff and upon training them up, she realised that teaching dog grooming was a passion of hers. With that, Salty Dog Grooming Academy was born. Already having offered top up training to groomers, SDGA are now able to provide OFQUAL regulated courses to students with little to no experience. 


If you are aspiring to have a successful career in dog grooming, then Salty Dog Grooming Academy is the place to be. Providing quality education and training to the highest of standards in a comfortable environment with a maximum of two students at a time, ensures you are getting the best possible outcome during your learning journey.


We can offer courses over a Wednesday & Thursday, and you can choose one / two days a week to train. SDGA are also able to offer payment plans for courses.

Highly recommend Mia at Salty Dog Grooming Academy. Her knowledge and eye for small detail is phenomenal.

She has taught me so much over the years, and all of my styling knowledge comes from her. She is also an amazing teacher, who finds ways to adapt to your style of learning.

If you want to learn to groom to a very high standard, where animal welfare and good customer service are just as important, then I can't think of a better place to be!

Mia is amazinggggg and the best teacher!

I had two top up training days with Mia to help improve prep and scissoring skills, and I can't thank her enough. I learnt so so so much and I feel I have come away with so many useful tips and tricks to help me improve my grooms. She has such an eye for detail and styling and I have certainly come away with a lot of knowledge to help me further with my career.

Mia is such a natural teacher and makes you instantly feel comfortable. A truly lovely learning environment. Highly recommend!!

Charlotte Underhill, Topknots & Tails

Had a 1-2-1 session with Mia to learn some new skills and tidy up my prep work. Mia was very patient with me even when I was having a 'brain blip' she's very knowledgeable and a brilliant teacher.
