Check out our history
During the mid 1970's, Joy Waters developed the JKL professional groomer training courses to provide more flexible and affordable groomer education, through distance learning.
In 1980, JKL Training Academy became a private career training institute of professional dog grooming, and welcomed its first students for practical and distance learning.
This was the year the JKL Website went live on the internet. Oh my, what an explosion of students -- from all over the world. Since then, JKL has grown and expanded exponentially. What a fun ride it is!
Now the JKL courses were online and students began taking our dog grooming courses from all parts of the world: UK, Europe, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, USA, Israel, Barbados, Fiji, China, Malaysia, Japan, to name a few. Meanwhile, students from every Canadian Province and Territory continued to train as professional pet groomers.
Groomer Training Centers from several countries partnered with JKL and began training their students with the JKL dog grooming course and method. We've partnered with schools in the UK, Australia, Malta, USA and China, and we continue to successfully train students worldwide.
JKL continues to provide dog groomer training (and cats too) in North America and Offshore. We continue to offer excellent groomer training, have ensured all course aspects are 100% mobile friendly, and have added video tutorials to our courses. Onwards and Upwards!
